Tis’ the season to bundle up! Winter has arrived and it’s time to layer up. Living in the Pacific Northwest, winters can be brutal. The temps drop and it’s rare that I leave the house without looking like a snowman, bundled from head to toe. This year, Christmas came early. E and I both needed new winter gear that was equal parts warm and stylish. We found exactly what we were looking for at Backcountry!
For the past few years, we have shopped Backcountry for all our outerwear needs. They have a huge selection of boots, jackets, scarves and hats, as well as fashionable lifestyle pieces for everyday! They carry our favorite brands, like North Face, Patagonia, Sorel, Marmot and even Free People. There is something for everyone and it makes taking on the winter chill AND your Christmas shopping list a lot easier!
With Christmas just days away…have you finished your shopping? Check out E and I’s top picks for gifts to stay warm below!
As much as I enjoy the snow, I hate being cold! The North Face Down Sierra Hooded Parka is what any girl who hates the cold dreams of! It’s insulated, making it extremely warm, and perfect for the girl on the go! The North Face Campshire 2.0 Hooded Pullover Fleece makes for a super cozy gift! It’s sherpa fabric is fuzzy and soft and traps body heat meaning you are toasty warm! Backcountry also has a huge selection of beanies and mittens that make great stocking stuffers! I love this beanie and these mittens because they slightly match. They would make a great gift set for any girl in your life!
E isn’t bothered by the cold as much as I am, and prefers lighter, easy to move in layers. The North Face Down Sierra Snap Jacket was my gift to him. He loves the modern look. It can be worn out in the snow, or paired casually over street clothes. The North Face Gordon Lyons Full-Zip Hoodie is a great gift for any man in your life! We got one for my dad, father-in-law and brother last year and they wear them almost year round. They are light, but still cozy and great zip up fleeces for layering.
At the very top of both of our winter wear gift lists are Sorel Boots. I got my first pair a few years ago, and now own multiple pairs. We figured it was time to get E a pair and now he is hooked! Sorel boots are a MUST for anyone ready to take on ice and snow in the winter.
The Sorel Joan of Arctic Wedge boots are my favorite. The wedge gives it a trendy, modern look, but that doesn’t mean they lack stability. They are extremely comfortable, warm, easy to walk in and have amazing traction. I love wearing mine in the classroom in the winter too!
E’s Sorel picks are the Cheyanne Metro Lace Up boot. Since getting them, he has gone on and on about how comfortable they are and a total game changer in the snow. They are durable and are a classic that won’t be going out of style any time soon!

Christmas is just a week away! Can you even believe it? I’ve been feeling extra festive lately and dressing for the season. Pops of red and green and a festive plaid go a long way in adding a little cheer to your holiday wardrobe! Today I am sharing 3 looks that can go from the holidays to everyday winter style from Topshop at Nordstrom!
This time of year, I am all about adding a little Christmas to my outfits (check out my thoughts here)! The problem is, I really don’t want to invest in festive pieces that I will only wear 1 month out of the year. I shop for pieces that I can dress up for the holidays and then incorporate into my winter style for the rest of the season. Cute but cozy classics, like sweaters, are my go to! I love a piece that can be dressed up or down and worn all season long!
When it comes to updating my wardrobe each season, I always score the best finds with Topshop at Nordstrom! They carry some great closet classics, but always put a unique spin on them! I also love their on trend pieces that are easy to wear but still make a statement! One of the reasons I love shopping at Nordstrom, is because they carry the brands I love, like Topshop. It’s always easy to find what I am looking for!
This season, I’ve been big into sweaters. From chunky knits to sweater dresses, there’s nothing cozier! A classic pullover is always one of my must haves! I love the rib knit of this one and the neutral shade. It goes with everything and is easy to dress up or down. I’ve been pairing it with a pop of plaid for that festive touch, but will be wearing it well into spring!
My favorite find this year has been this sweater dress! I’ve worn it to work and casually on the weekend. It’s super comfy and a closet staple. Dress it up with heels or boots, or pair it with leggings and sneakers for a comfy winter ootd.
Every year I have to buy at least one red piece. I love the color of this sweater. It’s more of an orange-y red, but still looks festive! Dress it up by pairing it with a skirt or pair it with some denim for a more laidback look.
Need your order in time for Christmas? No worries! Get your order by Christmas Eve if you order before the noon EST on the 22nd. While some items are ineligible, Nordstrom has TONS of items that are!
Winter officially begins in just a few days. I think Jack Frost got the memo early, as it’s already FREEZING. I’ve been living in all the coziest layers, softest knits and statement boots. Today I am sharing my favorite winter trend piece and a head to toe look from Walmart!
I am not a fan of winter. In fact, I absolutely hate being cold! However, I AM a fan of cute winter looks! I can totally get behind a chunky sweater and scarf combo! One trend I’ve been absolutely obsessed with lately is statement boots. When I feel like my outfit is more about wearing as many layers to stay warm, and less about being cute, I love adding a statement boot! From lace up detailing to sherpa lining, a statement boot can elevate any winter outfit!
One statement boot I have been wearing NON-STOP are these shearling fold over boots from Walmart. They come in 3 colors, are under $45 and are so comfortable! I love the chunky heel, sherpa lining and the fact that I can wear them rolled up or down. They are easy to dress up and down and comfortable enough to spend all day on my feet in the classroom.
Speaking of statement boots, Walmart has some KILLER options right now! This taller version of my boots looks so designer, but with a $50 price tag. I have these hiker boots in 2 colors because I love the lace up look, the shearling detailing and the memory foam sole! A great black bootie is a must have in winter, but this pair has a subtle croc look that totally elevates it!
