With Spring bringing forth blooms upon blooms, I’ve been wanting to #getoutstayout in all that the beautiful Pacific Northwest offers. Between the March hailstorms and pouring-rain-with-dazzling-sunshine-afternoons there have been moments of warm, windy pleasure just ripe for the hiking. But you gotta have a pair of fashionable hiking boots, some cool-looking jeans, and a top to strip off when you get too warm. Here’s what’s on my must-have list this week:
1. You’ll need something to brave the trails, and these Ahnu Sugarpine Hiking Boots are a must. Bonus that they come in chic colors – and are lightweight and waterproof! #turquoisesolesforever
2. I’ve been wearing these Blank Denim NYC Rub a Dub Dub jeans CONSTANTLY since I got them – I used to just buy skinny jeans at Forever 21 but let me tell you, the quality is so markedly better with Blank Denim I’m never going back. These are super-soft, hug you, hold you in tight, but are not overly tight – and don’t get stretched out. Order your size for a comfy fit – order one size down for sprayed-on sexy.
3.Have I mentioned how awesome this turtleneck sweater is? Yes I have – here, where you can see the gray version in action. You can fit a little family of honey badgers underneath – and have room to spare. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: BEST. SWEATER. EVER.
4. ALWAYS gotta check ASOS for the backpacks since they have so many cool options. This Jack Wills Active Backpack will withstand weather changes and looks cool doing it. Just don’t stuff it too full or else it’ll take you over if you happen to be leaning down next to a cliff in order to tie your fashionable hiking boots… (Plus, if you’re a student, save 20% off with code UNIDAY until 4 AM EDT 3/27/15)
If you can, get out there and brave those trails! Time’s a-wasting…
