Backcountry

I have strong feelings about must-have gear I bring on our camping trips to make the experience the coziest & most enjoyable. I love that all can be found at Backcountry.
Any other outdoor folks live for that first sip of coffee on your first morning camping? Ahh. SO. Good. Those outdoor coffee moments make the whole trip worth it for me. And the views, of course, the views...whether it be mountains, a river, the woods...I'll take it all, thank you. We haven't yet ventured back into the world of hike-in...
Whether you're looking for cute jackets or hiking + camping gear (packs, tents, sleeping bags), or something else for your outdoor adventures, our fav stuff is all on sale.
Kicking off the unofficial start to Hiking Season (yes, I just made that up) with a darn good sale from our favorite outdoor retailer, Backcountry! Right now, they're offering up to 60% off a ton of pieces -- like Shana's beloved hiking rain pants or her end-of-summer staples, otherwise known as this matching pink windbreaker and shorts. But...
Although beach season may be coming to a close, now's the perfect time to take advantage of allll the glorious Labor Day deals & snap up swim + activewear on sale.
Backcountry has quickly become one of our most-loved brands. Not only do they carry the best outdoor gear (I only know this because of everyone's awesome reviews here on the blog...for the record, I'm pretty indoorsy) but they also carry plenty of brands that adventure seekers (Shana) and non-adventure seekers (me) can both appreciate. Exhibit A: these cute shoes....
I've worn this windbreaker hiking, AND I've worn it out to grab dinner. The matching shorts aren't required, ovbi, but they're really flattering + significantly more comfy than my usual denim cut-offs.
Thank you to Backcountry & ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post. My favorite thing about summer? The way it stays light, long into the evening. We've been spending some time in Vermont lately and trying to soak it all in -- the golden, slanting light, the clouds clustered around the mountains, the impossibly fresh air. We'll spend many of...
Hiking in near-constant drizzle is infinitely more comfortable when your legs stay dry. So when The North Face debuted a new version of my old Apex Flex jacket – ‘Futurelight’ — + a pair of waterproof hiking pants, I had to try.
A huge thank you to Backcountry and Shopstyle for sponsoring this post! I learned the value of waterproof hiking pants on our trip to Iceland, oh gosh...five years ago now? I didn't arrive in Iceland with waterproof hiking pants — quick-dry leggings are almost as good, right? — but after a few days of consistently wet legs, I became the...
Happy Tuesday! Backcountry is kicking off the holiday weekend a little early with their huge 4th of July Sale! Take up to 50% now through the 4th and and and...they're currently offering free shipping to get your order by the 4th! Scotti's portable drink table could come in pretty clutch if you're planning on a beach day this weekend. Use...
We go to the beach around sunset to enjoy some happy hour beverages while the kids play in the water. These are the times I wait for ALL year long.
A huge thank you to Backcountry & ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post. We're in Carolina Beach--one of our favorite places in the world--this month. The beaches are absolutely gorgeous and we are taking full advantage of our time here. I'd love to say we're able to take in the beautiful sunrises over the ocean, but with two little...
We're talking cute hiking outfit pieces that are comfortable, perform, travel well & actually look good. Think: Danner boots.
When I put together my last post with Backcountry, I ordered quite the haul. It's been awhile since I've renewed my hiking gear, and since I tend to hang onto the same beloved gear for years (oh ok, decades), I wanted to get it just right -- the hiking boots, in particular. So below, I'm sharing details on quite...
Backcountry is 1 of our fav spots to snag adventure gear from cute hiking boots to sexy-practical swimwear, plus all the camping gear a mama could want.
Memorial Day weekend: the unofficial start of summer adventuring!! And since this crew is always up for a little adventure, we are frequent flyers (shoppers?) at Backcountry, one of our fav spots to pick up everything from cute hiking pants to sexy-practical swim, as well as all of the camping gear a mama could want (side note: camping cot...
Flattering high-rise hiking shorts, waterproof Danner boots, a lightweight jacket...we've found a cute women's hiking outfit that's totally worth it.
I'm not hugely athletic (literally participated in zero team sports as a kid -- zero!), but if there's one activity that I've pursued somewhat consistently throughout my childhood and my adult life, it's hiking. It's such a fun, fast way for me to clear my head while moving my body -- and for some reason, no matter how strenuous,...
