Hiking And Camping

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...
The best & most unexpectedly wonderful shoes for spring are a sweet pair of Blundstone original chelsea boots! They'll bring out your inner puddle-jumping kid, too.
It’s springtime; the birds are singing louder, the sun feels warmer, and there is increasingly more light in the sky with each passing day. You’re about to go outside to soak up some much needed vitamins after the winter, and as you head to the door you slip on your favorite pair of boots. BOOTS? Surely, you meant sandals. Nope! Believe...
I packed cute layers to wear by the fire & wore them the whole time: my fav leggings, crazy warm + water-resistant campfire booties, a comfy hoodie + a cozy hat.
Thank you to Backcountry & ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. The weather has been unseasonably warm here this year and thank GOD because we're all going a little stir-crazy. We had a TON of snow last year at this time, but this year we can actually sit around a campfire (that's not buried under all the snow) without freezing. Which...
As soon as I slipped my foot into the lighter-weight, SUPER-comfortable, SUPER-cute Danner Mountain 600 Hiking Boots, I knew they were the ones.
Thank you to Backcountry & ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. The time has come…the Comfort Shoe Queen of TME has decided to take on the search for great hiking boots. If you’re in a rush, the quick summary is: After trying several different boots (and years of boot-envy with Shana’s traditional Danners), I ended up falling in love with Danner’s lighter-weight,...
Backcountry is a go-to for outdoor gear, & cute hiking outfits are no exception. We found the perfect sneakers for a trip to the Paint Mines — & more.
This post is sponsored by Backcountry and ShopStyle. Eight years ago I made the decision that I was going to make the outdoors my BFF. I grew up going to camp every year, but somewhere between high school and graduating from college, I lost my love of spending time outside. I am so happy that I've recommitted to finding new...
We're getting cozy w/ outfit layers & Backcountry has The North Face, Marmot & other activewear brands perfect for all the outdoor activities.
This post is sponsored by Backcountry & ShopStyle. Fresh air. I will never take it for granted again after this summer and this year's fire season. Friends, this trip to the coast to get outside with my girlie was just what I needed. You can see it on my face in all of these photos...what a gift it was....
Hiking the trails in the Wissahickon Valley of Philadelphia is gorgeous — & also...quaint. Our family-friendly outing (+ what to wear hiking,) inside.
I'm embarrassed to admit that we've been living in Philadelphia for ten years nows...and we had never gone hiking in Wissahickon until last year, The Ninth Year of Our Residency in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. One of the coolest things about Philadelphia? It's old, man. At least by U.S. standards. And the Wissahickon? Well. Once inhabited by the indigenous Lenape people —...
A Catskills getaway hit the family adventure spot. The deets for hiking the trails at Russell Brook Falls (+ what to wear & eat), inside.
We ventured up to the Catskills recently, for a few nights of family togetherness. Despite the short drive from Philadelphia, we had never previously visited. We stayed at the North Branch Inn (more on that later -- we LOVED it), and basically spent a couple of days relaxing, eating, and doing a little hiking. Catskills Getaway: Hiking Russell Brook...
We're planning a little hiking trip next week. Mike and I have found, over the years, that we need proper family vacations -- away from the house -- in order for us to really unplug. Otherwise, our workaholic tendencies tend to get the best of us. And this year, we were supposed to be in Turkey. Like, right now....
