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 our evenings outdoors. We’ll go for walks, play family rounds of badminton, or just lay outside on the grass and read.
It is delicious.
Pretty Windbreakers & Sports Shorts For Getting My Outdoor Adventure On
Between the hiking during the day and the evenings spent outside, I’ve been spending most of my time in workout gear, sweatpants/sweatshirts, or…this cute windbreaker.
It’s definitely windbreaker season around here. Misting rain, beaming sun, cool temps, a sudden burst of warm air — we’ll see it all in a single day.
I’ve worn this windbreaker hiking, AND I’ve worn it out to grab dinner. The matching shorts aren’t required, obvi, but they are really flattering, and significantly more comfortable than my usual denim cut-offs. Also, take 15% off most full-price pieces (including these) with code THEMOMEDIT.
While I do love my typical black, there’s something very fresh and playful about outdoor gear done in a really pretty hue.
(ps. For a major steal, also check out Backcountry’s Pecos Water Shorts. They’re super-flattering, come in a ton of colors, and on sale for under $30.)
If you’ve never tried a Rumpl blanket, I highly recommend them. We picked ours up over the winter, and have taken it to numerous restaurants as an extra layer when eating outside. The boys curl up with it to read on the couch, and it doubles as a picnic blanket in a pinch. We now have two, and they’ve gotten thrown in the trunk for every road trip — we use them that much.
Scotti also turned us onto Rumpl’s waterproof stash mat (in rainbow) that is almost never in stock. It folds up small, repels sand, and generally just keeps our bums dry on damp ground.
Here’s to soaking up every last inch of summer.
