What to Buy at the Backcountry Semi-Annual Sale

February 19, 2018

Question: What are the MOST important items are in your wardrobe? Can we live without our beloved frilly ruffle top? Life wouldn’t be as fun (or cute), but yes, we can live without frilly ruffle tops. Can we live without waterproof boots or warm winter jackets? I’m going to have to say those are probably the more important items in a person’s wardrobe. If you live in Florida or Southern California or Texas or some your wardrobe MUSTS might be a lightweight raincoat or durable yoga pants, maybe a great pair of everyday sneakers. Good news: all of these wear NOW essentials are on sale at the Backcountry Semi-Annual Sale.

If you have never shopped at Backcountry before, I can’t say how impressed I am with this company. Not only do they carry some the best brands (Patagonia, Marmot, Alo, Ugg, The North Face etc….) they have “gearheads” that you can live chat with to answer any questions you have about fit/size/functionality etc. The free 2 day shipping on orders over $50 is also pretty amazing. And if you are not shopping for yourself, this site has great gifts – (basically every Christmas present I got for my husband was from Backcountry). They are also having great deals on hiking gear, biking, skiing and more.

And 48 hours only…….

Here are a few functional wardrobe musts that I’ve incorporated into several outfits – and yes, almost everything is on sale!

Yoga and Beyond….

This look will take you from studio to street. I can’t say enough about these Free People tanks – I have several colors that I wear for any occasion (yoga to date night!). This Alo Pullover is SO good – from the split sewn hem to the thumb holes, to the fact that it is super snuggly warm.

Weekend Uniform

OK let’s be honest, I wear some variation of this outfit on a daily basis – to the bus stop and beyond. This Patagonia jacket – basically I never want to take it off. It feels like a dream and I’m mind boggled how they make a jacket that is so thin, but yet so warm? For those nervous about white, it does come in other colors. And what would winter be without a classic pair of Sorels. I love the black/white combo for a super chic, goes-with-anything boot….

Monochromatic + Moto

The easiest way to look put together? Go monochromatic. This asymmetrical heavy weight fleece is not only eye catching, but super insanely warm (also comes in cream). And long time followers know my love for Alo moto leggings… and they rarely go on sale!

Top Knots to Toes…

For those in between days – a cozy fleece and knock-around booties. Puddles recommended, but not required.
