Sun Valley trip recap

Long over due post alert! I went to Sun Valley, Idaho for the first time in four years for the 4th of July. I hadn't realized just how much I missed it! My family goes every year but I couldn't always get the days off to join them when I was working full time. It was relaxing and so nice to get fresh mountain air! The only bad part was when my flight home was canceled. Thankfully a nanny friend was able to cover for me at work since I couldn't get home until Friday (instead of Wednesday). But there are certainly worse places to get stuck! ;)

You just can't beat the view!

Spotted lots of bunnies

My nephews enjoying the same activity I loved as a kid-exploring the streams and making sticks, boats, etc. float through 

Everywhere you look there's a beautiful view

Garnet Hill Summer Gems

Back in May I heard from Garnet Hill about doing a product review focusing on summer inspiration. I would say this has been a summer of travel (and family). I told Garnet Hill about all of my upcoming trips (Las Vegas, Charleston, Idaho, and the trip I am heading on this week). I was excited to see what product I would get to review. I have put the pure cashmere wrap to good use with all of my trips!

Mine is navy and I LOVE it! Usually when I travel I bring a hoodie. But I don't put it on over my head since (1) it's tricky getting it back off without elbowing the person next to you and (2) the temperature can change quickly on the plane. HA! So it doesn't work very well to keep me warm.

Well no more traveling in hoodies for me! I wore the wrap around my upper half/over my shoulders on my way to Sun Valley and then just over my lap like a blanket on my way home. The cashmere is not itchy (I am picky about my cashmere sweaters). Garnet Hill uses only the best cashmere and Oeko-Tex-certified eco-friendly dyes with fewer chemicals.

The best photo I got from my phone on my flight. This was when I was using it as a lap blanket. 
I just feel 10x chicer (is that a word?) using my wrap instead of a sweatshirt. Almost as chic as this model showing off hers ;)

Unfortunately I am having issues uploading photos from my real camera (looks like the cord may have been misplaced in my move) but I've ordered a new cord so hopefully I can upload the real photos soon!

I love the color that is currently available. It's perfect for transitioning into fall (don't worry-summer is not over yet!!!). Use it at the beach on those cool nights, take it to outdoor movies at the park, wear it to a wedding whatever you have planned for summer!
