Adventuring

My fave après ski outfits are basically a cute, fashion-y take on easy + warm. For some, this means leggings + faux-fur moon boots. For me, it's almost always jeans & a sweater. The key is to make it a bit exciting, in a nonchalant, not trying-too-hard kind of way.
When packing for a trip, sometimes I just need to get pointed in the right direction. And while most of my packing decisions for a ski weekend are obvious (skis, boots, helmet, goggles, etc.,), nailing that breezy, effortlessly chic après ski vibe (so prevalent in ski towns), does take some actual thought. I do realize, however, that there are different...
We've been getting some questions about the cutest (and most functional) ski or snowboard gear, so here's what I've been wearing for years, as well as some new (and very exciting) pieces that I recently tried (a few of these were recently tested on the slopes as well!). I tried to include notes on the varying lengths of snowpants...
The best way to keep hiking outfits easy & cute is by starting with a pair of leggings & a trusty pair of boots. Then I top it all off with a light tee & fleece jacket.
My husband and I love hiking year-round, whether at home on our favorite trails, or discovering new ones while traveling. But there’s something extra magical about heading into the woods during fall. Fall in Michigan means the air is cooler, the changing leaves make everything glowy and golden, and honestly, it’s just more fun to dress for.  The best way I...
Memorial Day weekend is here & Backcountry is kicking off the long weekend sales + unofficial start of summer with discounts on outdoor gear & summer styles.
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...
I’ve been on trails with almost every style of shoe but never one that was cute & preformed well until I found the On Cloudrock Hiking Boot. Waterproof, comfy, stylish & lightweight.
Hiking and me, we go way back.  I was raised in the middle of the woods...I mean truly, on acres of thick trees and rivers where hiking was just a regular afternoon of play rather than a planned out excursion. My dolls usually came along, too.  The Best Stylish & Lightweight Waterproof Hiking Boots I’ve been on the trails with just about...
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...
Danner hiking boots, in addition to their durability, stability, longevity, waterproofing & comfort...are cute. The stylish factor is a main reason we love 'em.
I bought my Danner Mountain Light hiking boots in 2016, in preparation for a trip. We were taking our two young boys to Iceland and had planned to do it up: explore towns, see natural wonders (read: waterfalls) and do a ton of hiking. Ideally, I needed a hiking boot that was waterproof...but one that wasn't overly heavy or...
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....
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...
