Let’s be real y’all, I do not camp. While I love being outdoors, hiking, and spending time in nature, I am not about that no-running-water, sleeping-in-a-tent life. I am, however, an avid glamping girl. I love full-amenity vacations with a touch of glam, which is why I find the idea of glamping much more attractive. If you are a glamping gal too, then I recommend you take a look at glamping.com. Their site offers premier destinations all across the globe for the glamorous camper in mind. I am swooning over all of the Asia glamping experiences, especially since I was slated to go to Thailand for a month last year.
Since I won’t likely be making it to Thailand this year either, I figured I would share a packing list with you all for my upcoming glamping experiences. At the end of the month, I am heading to Moab, Utah, then to Strawberry Hot Springs in Steamboat, CO this April. While I am still on the hunt for the perfect glamping outfits for my trip, I figured it would be fun to spark some inspiration for my upcoming vacays.
What To Wear Glamping: Cute Camping Outfits
When I think about the glamorous camping life, there are a few essentials that come to mind. The first is a great pair of hiking pants that are breathable and perfect for all-day wear. I found the best pair of hiking pants from Athleta: the Trekkie Utility Cargo Pant. They are the first pair of true hiking pants I have ever found that are the perfect design and come in sizes 0-24! They fulfill all of my glamping dreams! The second is a great pair of hiking boots. I do have several pairs of hiking shoes that I love, but I am jonesing to try the famous Danner boots that S swears by. The last is a killer date night dress, just in case you find yourself going to get dinner with your crew.
Okay, onto the rest of the packing list!
IMO, Free People makes the best sweaters for my style! I absolutely love that their sweaters are a more oversized fit for me, and think this muted teal color is perfect for the glamping life.
Every glamping girl needs a good waterproof jacket for those days when there might be a little drizzle outside. But if I am being totally honest, you likely won’t find me trekking in the rain. Even still this jacket is so well-structured and great for everyday wear as well.
I’ve got a serious crush on these, and I am quite certain it’s because they remind me of a sleeker version of my absolute favorite Nike Palazzo pants. I am obsessed with all things wide leg these days, and I love the detailing on the front and side of the pants. These are just too good, y’all, and I envision myself wearing these off the trail for a causal dinner. They would pair well with a cropped tank and platform sandals.
I feel like I need this bucket hat for my upcoming trip to Moab. I envision myself on top of the Arches basking in the sun with this hat. It comes in several colors too and is only $38!
I am in LOVE with Reformation right now, and this dress is simply stunning. It’s definitely not a camping dress, but is most certainly the dress I would wear for the fancy dinner out! I recently purchased this beauty. I will say I typically size up in Ref dresses, but this one fits true to size, and I need to exchange it for my normal size 20. The detailing, double-balloon sleeves and baby doll look are simply stunning.
Is there anything more campy than tie-dye?! I think it might be the pinnacle for camping attire. I personally love bringing this along for a morning hike and would throw it over a great workout set.
Shacket, shaket, yeah! I am still in love with the shacket trend that’s lingering this season, and the Treasure & Bond shacket comes in the perfect shade of forest green.
This sling bag gives me trendier fanny pack vibes, and is the perfect size for your keys, phone and credit card. It’s the perfect size for a short hiking experience.
This backpack is perfect for glamping because it can be switched from a backpack to a crossbody bag. I love how versatile it is and it’s got tons of pockets for extra storage too.
I don’t know the difference between hiker socks and normal socks, but these ones are cute.
I know I already said you likely won’t find me hiking in the rain, but these Chelsea wells are perfect for those rainy days that might catch you unexpectedly. They have amazing traction and look timeless too!
Reformation’s activewear line is seriously so good! And it gives me all the glamping vibes too. If you follow them on IG, you can see that their activewear gives off the glamorous life. These are buttery soft, and the cropped tank can even be worn with a pair of jeans, too. I recently bought these in several colors and am still trying to decide which color is the best for me.
OMG, I have never successfully found a pair of hiking cargo pants…until now! I literally just got these yesterday, and they are fulfilling all my glamorous camping dreams. They are the perfect stretch material, and I love that they can transform into a jogger style too! These are the perfect pair of hiking pants for straight and plus size!
S swears by Danner hiking boots, and I am thinking I just may have to cave-in and get a pair for myself! Use code THEMOMEDIT for 15% off!!
Of all the shoes I have mentioned in this roundup of glamping gear, these are my absolute favorite! I love the scrappy nature and that they are a nod to the OG Teva strap sandals. These beauties are sold out in many sizes, and if you like this style, here are a few more sandals that speak to this gorgeous sandal!
Well, now that you all know that I am a glamping girl through and through, I have to know what type of camping person you are! Are you the kind who likes to rough it in the wild, or are you like me — someone who prefers the glamorous camping route?
