While visiting Jackson, Wyoming, Ben and I decided to head over to Jenny Lake in the Grand Teton National Park early one morning to walk around and explore. There are so many great hiking trails in the park that we have hiked in the past, but we’d never spent much time just wandering and exploring at the base. While you can’t beat the views from the mountains, actually looking at the dramatic mountain scenery that surrounds the lake is just stunning. We even saw a few deer, a fox and when we came back the next day, we heard there was a bear a few hours later not far from where I was sitting on the dock. If I were under the age of 12, my parents would have given me a $100 had I seen it (a game they love to play with my nieces and nephews to keep their eyes peeled for wildlife).
Anyway, although it’s mid-July, temps tend to fluctuate in Jackson quite a bit (and very quickly)… so I decided to wear my comfortable denim shorts and boyfriend button down with this cute silk and suede wrap to keep warm in case the clouds came out. This wrap is actually by the globally renowned fashion brand BCBGMAXAZRIA for (and inspired by) Magnum Ice Cream – and not only does it look like rich, decadent Belgian chocolate, but it smells like it too! That’s kind of every girls dream right? Wearing this wrap I am like a walking chocolate scented magnet stimulating everyones, including my own, senses. I bet you that my yummy scented wrap is even what brought the bear down from the mountain haha! Can’t say I blame him… it’s the Magnum effect.
And speaking of effects, my wrap smelled so good that I actually had to go and get a Magnum Ice Cream bar made with Belgian chocolate to satisfy my cravings (talk about perfect advertising, amiright?!) I went with their double peanut butter flavor and had the hardest time holding off from devouring the rest after my first bite ’till the end of our shoot! It was pure torture because I am an chocolate fanatic and peanut butter enthusiast haha. PS, did you know that MAGNUM is the only ice cream bar made with Belgian chocolate?
What do you guys think about fashion meeting chocolate? I think it’s a pretty cool and innovative idea (it’s the world’s most pleasurable fashion accessory), and I love it when two brands I adore get creative and collaborate.
You can indulge your senses and score this Belgian Chocolate Wrap as a limited edition ‘gift with purchase’ from select BCBGMAXAZRIA stores this summer (valued at $228) so be sure to head to the nearest location!
Have a delicious chocolatey Thursday!
