Let me just start by saying I HAVE NEVER FELT BETTER! I am loving it here in Colorado so much and being outside all of the time has made me feel 10x younger. Our family loves the outdoors and if the sun is shining, we are out there!
I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to handle the winter here, but when the sun is out it feels 20 degrees warmer than what the weather channel says it is!
Troy and I have found so many fun things to do outside, and one of them involves hiking up a small mountain and doing yoga together at the top. Sometimes we are so tired that we just stretch and talk. It’s AMAZING!
Since working from home, I like to wear outfits that will be good for my morning workouts but also comfortable enough to work in. I am usually going straight from the workout to work with no time in between to shower and change. Because of this I need all of my workout clothes to be versatile.
Backcountry has so many brands to choose from, so being able to pick out items that will be great for both is super easy.
Below you will find some of my favorite versatile pieces from Backcountry as well as my picks from their amazing Winter Yard Sale.
Athleisure to Take From Work to Working Out
When I do my workouts indoors I frequently see my instructors wearing two sports bras. I am not sure why they do it (I am guessing for added support) but I LOVE the look! I wanted to recreate it for my outdoor hikes too. I bought this Free People Hot Shot Cami to wear with jeans and a cardigan but decided it would be so cute layered over my more supportive Free People Cropped Run Tank. The tank fits super tight and the cami a little looser so they work perfectly together.
I had never seen lace up leggings like these Year of Ours Rib Football Leggings, but I bought them on a whim to wear during the Superbowl and have been in love ever since! They are Troy’s favorite pair of leggings now as well. He loves the lace up look apparently! There are so many different ways to style them and I can definitely see myself wearing them for both hiking and for brunch with the girls with a cropped sweater!
I actually purchased the ON Running Cloudstratus Running Shoe for Try it Tuesday- I am going to try out some of the best running shoes out there and I will let you know my favorites! ON is such a popular brand and I haven’t really taken these off since I first put them on. They are so comfortable. They give nice cushion on the trails and I love they are actually known for their premier running capabilities so I can just take off in them whenever I want.
Lastly, I have owned this Patagonia jacket for years now. It will last you a lifetime and provides so much warmth in the cooler seasons but is also light enough to wear during the spring. It is definitely an item you will reach for over and over again.
These are just a few of my favorite athleisure items from Backcountry. Their outdoor apparel and brand selection is the best out there. You will always be able to find items you can wear at home and on the go, on the trail or at the desk, in the gym or at brunch!

Backcountry’s Winter Yard Sale
One of my favorite times to shop at Backcountry is during their Winter Semi-Annual Sale. This is when I stock up on all of the items I need for next year at amazing prices up to 50% off. I like to think about everything I used this year but needed more of, everything that needs a tune up, everything I needed but didn’t have, etc. and create a list off of that. Then I head to Backcountry to shop for what I need at an incredible discount.
Another sale I love this time of year is the Built by Backcountry Sale, where you can get up to 40% off of Backcountry apparel & gear!! Both sales are amazing, so make sure to browse through each before checking out. The sales only last for another week and sizes go quickly, so don’t delay!
