Last weekend, I shared that Kevin and I were out exploring our neighborhood on a cool 15º morning. A majority of you thought we were crazy, but those of you who are local to Minne know that’s just normal – haha! Winter doesn’t stop us from getting out and enjoying our weekends, no matter how cold it is! Something I love about living in the Cities is how there are gorgeous trails and parks around every turn. This spot is only a few blocks from our new house and is just as gorgeous in the Winter as it is in the Summer.
That being said, we definitely layered up a bit more than we would’ve during the Summer! I’ve been eyeing this Patagonia T-Snap Fleece + Vest from Backcountry for YEARS and finally decided to grab both as an early Christmas gift to myself. Getting new Winter gear for Christmas was a regular occurrence in our house growing up (as I’m sure it is in every Northern household). We would inevitably grow out of our cold weather gear or have a mitten/hat that needed replacing! This fleece + my vest make the perfect combo for those chilly days. They’re a super warm combo (I layered a long-sleeve under my fleece and had no issues!). And, they’re fashionable without being bulky! For reference, I’m wearing S in both. Would definitely size UP in the fleece – it runs small!
And, I finally picked up a new color in my favorite snow boots. If you don’t have these Sorel boots, what are you waiting for?! The”camel brown” color was a November bestseller. So many of you girlies love these boots just as much as I do! I grabbed a black pair so I’d have an excuse to wear them with more outfits (lol). My sister has them in grey and loves them just as much as we do! During our walk, I trekked through 6-9 inches of snow and had no issues. My feet stayed perfectly warm and comfortable – these babies are MN winter approved! Also, per follower recs I ended up sizing up .5 in this pair and have MUCH more room for socks. Would recommend sizing up .5!
I also picked up a fleece lined beanie, which in my opinion is a winter necessity! I had one all through college and loved it so much I even made my friend Brian crawl under someone’s porch to find it after I lost it once – lol! If that’s not dedication to the cozy cause, I don’t know what is!
I’m super excited because Backcountry has graciously given me a discount code to share with all of YOU! You can get 15% off your first purchase on Backcountry.com (exclusions apply) with code LOMEYER15. How cool is that?! Time to stock up on more Sorel boots & Patagonia fleeces – haha!
