Valentine’s Gifts

Happy Wednesday friends!! Wednesday already? This week is FLYING! And so is this month, per usual lol!! It’s been a busy week so far – I spent yesterday wrapping up some of the living room and purging the linen closet, which had become a catchall for alllll the random crap in the house! Felt good to get it done. I shared an after photo of it here!

Later this week, I’ll be sharing an affordable workwear haul from Target and next week I’ve officially declared it SPRING BREAK PREP WEEK on the blog! Sharing a good transition outfit you can rock no matter where you’re going for Spring Break (even if it’s staying home!!) and a HUGE round up of warm weather vacay essentials. Think swimsuits, resort wear, shorts, sandals, beach bags – everything!!!

For now, I’m sharing any and every gift you could need for Valentine’s next week. Whether you’re celebrating with your guy, gal, girlfriends or fur babies – I’ve got ya covered! Sharing TONS of gifts below, and I’ve rounded up all of them at the bottom of the post so you guys can find them all in one place!

PS if you missed the announcement on Sunday, the facebook group is LIVE and girls are already asking for recommendations from each other!! We got some event wear recommendations going on right now! Come join the FAM!

Weekly Round Up + Weekend Sales: Hello February!

Having a relaxed but productive Sunday over here – my favorite kind! Kevin and I both got up pretty early so we got some work done this morning so we could relax and focus on our nachos for the game tonight, lol! Priorities!

This week on IG stories, I shared my idea for starting a private Facebook group as a way to create more of a community for all of these amazing gals I have following along with me across my blog, IG, Pinterest, Facebook etc! You guys LOVED it and had so many great ideas for what we could do in the group! This will be a place for me to share MORE with you all outside the scope of what I can typically share on the ‘gram or blog. Thinking things like things to do in msp for locals, random home/life finds (not fashion/beauty related), book lists (maybe even a book club?!), blogging tips/tricks, sale/restock alerts, productivity tips, healthy eating tips, cat pics (lol) – just ANYTHING. And, this will be a great place for all of you to share outfit recreations or just outfits you want advice on in a space that’s free of judgment and negativity!! I’ve also decided I’ll be selling my clothes in the group probably 2-3 times a month or so :).

This will truly be a community so I want us all to feel like we can share what we want! The group officially went LIVE today so you can request to join HERE! Make sure to check out the first post in the group when you get in!! And also, cause I know this was a fear, this does not in any way mean I’ll be sharing less on the blog or IG. My assistant, Nia, will be helping a lot with the admin side of the group (as she does with a lot of behind the scenes happenings!). She’s the best!!

Also – tune into stories in a bit for a AE/Aerie try on! Everything’s on sale and I’m sharing some GOOD white denim!! Also sharing my outfit from yesterday!

Galentine’s/Valentine’s Outfits

I always love this time of year because we bloggers start sharing anything and everything Valentine’s related and, to be honest, I barely thought about what I was gonna wear on Valentine’s before blogging. LOL, just being honest! But, now I looked forward to this time of year because I feel like all the pastel pinks and hearts bring me out of my January blues! And I know there are plenty of peeps who like to get a little dressed up whether it’s for a fancy date night with your Sig O or a girls’ brunch for Galentine’s! To this day, the Valentine’s I spent with my girls while studying abroad is one of my favorite VDay memories. We drank SO much wine (so much, omg!), told funny stories, played stupid games and just laughed the entire night. It was so fun!

Today, I’m sharing some outfits that would be great for any VDay event you have – even if it’s just going to work and cuddling up with your fur babies at the end of the day! We all could feel a little more love this time of year! There’s a good selection of both dressy and casual pieces below so there’s something for everyone. I did a try on of a few of the casual sweaters below in Instagram stories yesterday! I’ve linked the outfits below too. All of the casual sweaters are Amazon and most ship prime!

Also, a lot of the sales I shared yesterday are still going on including my Living Proof sale!! Don’t miss out!!

Outdoor Winter Date Ideas

Are you getting cabin fever yet? It’s getting to that point in winter where I have trouble remembering my days, and Kevin and I have been itching to get outside. It gets sooo easy to hibernate this time of year (especially when it’s SO cold out), and I have to admit I am totally guilty of spending way too much time inside during these winter months.

Kevin, on the other hand, has always LOVED hiking in the winter. And I have always thought he was crazy! But, he goes out no matter the temps and loves it. Like I’ve told you guys before, he hikes all year round but he especially loves the winter because the state parks are so empty, everything is so silent and everything looks so gorgeous when it’s covered by snow.

And, now that I’ve gone out with him, I totally agree.
We had a great time hiking together, falling in the snow, and spending time just US two. Given the very real risk of frostbite, we didn’t have our phones out besides to snap a few photos, and it felt really good to disconnect from everyone else. We’re already planning the next time we’re going out! If you’re looking for a great way to spend time with your guy, gal or fam and get out of the house this winter, head to your nearest state park! I promise you’ll love it!!

If you’re not up for hiking there are so many other ways to get outdoors this winter with your Sig O! You could…

  • Go to a hockey game!
  • Go ice skating!
  • Take a weekend trip to a cozy cabin up North!
  • Go snowshoeing (which I’ve heard is a KILLER workout)
  • Just play in the snow!
  • Go skiing/snowboarding
  • Go sledding!
  • Check out your local winter festivals (Minne has a TON)
  • Go on an outdoor run or walk (we do this 1-2X a week – walk not a run lol).

That being said, make sure you bundle up when you go out! When we went out this past weekend, it was a whopping 8º outside! But, we felt bundled up and prepared. Before going out, I knew I needed to grab some new gear from Backcountry because Kevin looks like abominable snowman every time he goes out, and I was no where near that prepared, lol!

I grabbed this pair of Merrell winter hiking boots and was SO impressed by them. Kevin told me to go with Merrell for any hiking – summer or winter. They are the most sturdy, waterproof and don’t slip AT all. And he was right, I had no issues. And, although they’re a bit lower on the ankle, you can tie them very tight so snow can’t get in and make your feet wet. I sized up .5, and they fit perfectly with thick socks!

I also picked up this new Patagonia puffer jacket, which was a hot topic in DM’s this weekend. Funny enough, when we met up with a few of our friends (the same ones who go backpacking in Europe and introduced me to Patagonia), our friend Brian was wearing the men’s version of my jacket – lol! So the style works for men and women and is DEFINITELY gearhead approved. It’s very lightweight but still warm enough that it kept me cozy on our hike! I love it so much I pretty much have stopped using my other jackets since I got it. I sized up to a S to layer over sweaters.

And, because hiking is all about layering (or so Kevin told me!), I had lots of layers in case we hiked on warm day! I wore this super cute olive green long sleeve and my puffer vest under my jacket. This long sleeve is so versatile, a great weight for spring and would be really cute with jeans too! I also wore fleece leggings and WISH I had grabbed a pair of snow pants. Lesson learned for next time. If you’re hiking in 20º+, you’ll be find in just leggings. And, of course, I had to wear my fleece lined mittens and beanie!

First time customers can get 15% off their orders at Backcountry.com with code LOMEYER15 (some exclusions apply!) – AKA you can save on pretty much everything I wore out to hike! Woooop!! ALSO, they just launched their huge end of season sale with 50% off Patagonia, Sorel, The North Face + more!! A similar version of my puffer is on sale & I LOVE these Sorels that are marked down too!

Also, I have to give a HUGE shout out to Backcountry’s customer service. If you were watching stories last week you know that I was a victim of a porch pirate Thursday. Well, they took ALL of my gear for this weekend’s hike. Since we had this planned a few weeks out we didn’t want to cancel (especially since we were hoping to see the fresh snow from Friday’s blizzard #priorities). Anyway, I messaged Backcountry on their chat messenger right away about it, and they overnighted a new package, no questions asked, the same day. I didn’t have to pay anything and the whole process took 5 minutes. It arrived Friday, and I had everything I needed for Sunday. Could not recommend them more for any outdoor gear you need!

xoxo

**Thank you for Backcountry for sponsoring today’s post. As always, all items were picked out by me and all opinions are my own.**
