It’s not that I don’t like winter. It’s just that this winter has been unbearably cold resulting in me not being able to do any of the outdoor winter activities I usually love. Too cold to ski, to cold to skate, what is a girl to do! SO now, that the weather is warming up, the snow is melting and it’s starting to show the first signs up Spring, I am already thinking about of the outdoors adventures I will be having over the next few months!
The key to surviving outdoors is to find the perfect outfit that is not only comfy but functional too. And hey, if you happen to look good at the same time, I see no problem there! For my outfit, I decided to go for some versatile pieces from Bench. The goal of the company is to create clothes that work in the harsh wilderness made from the perfect blend of materials, but that look great in an urban environment too. I love their new lightweight Reflection Jacket. Made from entirely reflective material, the jacket makes going for a nighttime run a whole lot safer. Looking for somewhere to keep your iPod while you’re on the go? This jacket also has an interior device pocket with audio cable routing to keep your cords in check! As for the bottom, you can never go wrong with a great pair of Dando B Leggings, complete with reflective detail too!
I can’t wait till the snow finally melts to I can wear my UNEEK shoes by Keen! These innovative shoes are created with a two-cord construction that molds to your feet perfectly. The beauty of this design is that it not only looks cool, but its’ lightweight material allows you move freely in your footwear but also provides top-notch durability and comfort. I’m really looking forward to planning my next hike or adventure so that I can wear these outdoors! These shoes are also easy to wash, so in the words of Ms. Frizzle,”Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!”
