If you haven’t noticed, Deb and I LOVE outerwear. Here in the midwest, we need all different types of outerwear because the weather is INSANE. We each have a few coats that are heavy and a few that are lighter because one day it can be 50 degrees and the next -5. Again… the weather is bizarre. Backcountry is a premium outdoor and lifestyle retailer that carries our FAVORITE outdoor brands. They are our go-to website to shop for outerwear.
JACKETS (PATAGONIA, NORTH FACE LONG PUFFER, NORTH FACE SOFTSHELL): Deb and I wear these jackets every single time the weather gets cold, especially if we’re working on a project outside. They’re all insulated and water resistant making them the perfect everyday winter coats.
Backcountry has great accessories, too.
BELT: This women’s microfiber belt is great because it’s stretchy, comfortable, and under $30! It’s has built-in stretch that actually moves with so you can even wear it when you work. The elasticity is flexible and it fits up to a 41.5 inch waist.
SOCKS: These socks are a bit more heavyweight than your normal crew sock which is why I like them so much. Whether you’re working or hiking, wear these socks with your boots for all day comfort. They’re also extremely warm since they’re so heavy!
CASHMERE SCARF: This true cashmere scarf is made from a Merino cashmere blend that provides warmth and softness. It comes in a variety of different authentic tartans to choose from. This scarf is currently on sale for 40% off making it an amazing price for being real cashmere.
BEANIE: Ever heard of a beanie with a brim? I personally love this one and wear it all the time to keep my ears and head warm outside. It’s made of wool that’s breathable and cozy. Can one really have enough beanies? ???? They work well for bad hair days, too.
BACKPACK: I love this North Face backpack because it’s so versatile and can be used for tons of different things. It has a laptop sleeve, fleece lined pockets to prevent scratches on your sunglasses, internal organizer prep, and dual water bottle holders to name a few. It’s super functional which is why I love it.
BOOTS (LUCIE BOOTS, NORTH FACE BOOTS): If you’re in the market for some new boots, I highly recommend these two options. One made of leather and one from suede, both of these boots are water-resistant. We each have several pairs and get so much use out of them.
