I am back from my vacation in Maryland and missed you all! My online time was very limited during our trip so not much YLF time last week.
We enjoyed our trip very much. Maryland is a small but pretty diverse state so in one week we were able to see mountains, small southern coast villages, historic Annapolis and urban Baltimore.
The trip was pretty relaxed even if it involved a fair bit of driving. My packing for the trip was pretty hectic though because I left everything for the last day :-( My most useful clothing item was a orchid pink trench - it kept me warm, dry and cheerful! (and also sporting pink for Angie)

My hiking boots were not very fashionable but they were necessary on the trails. I wanted to take a white studded belt with me but in the last minute switched it to gold. Too bad because white belt would have worked much better here..:-(
pic 3-4 Exploring historic Annapolis
We spend 2 half-days in Annapolis. The first day was cooler so I wore my slouchy trousers and denim shirt with flat oxfords. The next day was much warmer and I went casual with faded BF jeans, a silk blend button down shirt and slipper flats. In pic 4 I am sampling an apple pie ice cream from Kilwin's on Janet's recommendation - yum!
pic 5-8 Frolicking on the southern coast
After Annapolis we went to explore a southern coast. I think I have never seen so many boats in one place - I think 5 boats to 1 car at least! I wore BF jeans, striped tee, trench and hiking boots to hike on the rocky beach (pic 5), changed hiking boots to slipper flats for exploring the historic St. Mary's town (fascinating place!) and for dinner switched trench for a tuxedo blazer and shoes for red booties (pic 6 - sampling local key lime pie after dinner in a cozy cafe:-) ) We also visited a local oyster festival - I did not risk eating them raw though and went for scolded instead (pic 8)
pic 9-11 Strolling through Baltimore
Baltimore was the last stop on our trip and we really liked the city. It has 7.5 mile long waterfront promenade and it was our favorite place to stroll. You already know from Janet's post that we visited her studio and had a lunch with her next day. Actually Janet is "responsible" for us selecting Maryland for this vacation because she was very enthusiastic describing her state and its attractions to me and I just had to see it for myself!
That concludes my vacation report. It was not much in a sense of outfits really but it was fun nonetheless! :-)
