My Top Picks from the Backcountry Semi-Annual Sale

February 10, 2020


Erin Schrader

If there’s one thing that comes as a near-guarantee with living in Northern Indiana, it’s that Winters will be cold and snowy. And I’d be lying if I told you I didn’t sort of love it! You know what else I sort of love? Okay, REALLY love? That Winter also means it’s time for Backcountry’s Semi-Annual Sale! If you don’t know about Backcountry, let me take a step back and brief you quickly.

Backcountry is a premium outdoor and lifestyle retailer based in Park City, Utah and they carry all of your favorite outdoor brands including but not limited to Patagonia, The North Face, Sorel, Prana, Marmot, Free People and more. The best news? During this sale [it goes until February 29th] they have pieces from several of these brands up to 50% off! Add in the fact that they offer free 2-day shipping over $50 and their customer service is out of this world – seriously, the best I’ve ever experienced, there is no reason why Backcountry shouldn’t be a go-to retailer when giving in to your daily online shopping habits. [PS if you haven’t shopped Backcountry before, they’re giving my readers a discount. Just use code YELLOW15 for 15% off your first purchase at Backcountry.com. [exclusions apply]!. This month, Backcountry will be donating up to $7k from purchases with my code to their partner The Nature Conservancy [@nature_org] to support their recovery efforts in Australia.]

Today I thought I would share my top finds that I picked up during the Backcountry Semi-Annual Sale, [remember they have items for women, men, and kids]

 Patagonia Synchilla Lightweight Snap-T Fleece Pullover [TTS, wearing size small] // Frye Sienna Cropped Skinny Jean [size up!] // Sorel Slimpack Lace II Boot [TTS]

A classic fleece gets a fun twist with these shades of purple! Say goodbye to the blacks and greys of Winter by adding in a fun pop of color! This top will keep you warm and cozy whether you’re outside adventuring or indoors fireplace-ing [which is me, more often than I should admit].

Patagonia Divided Sky Jacket [TTS, wearing size small] // Frye Sienna Cropped Skinny Jean [size up!] // Sorel Slimpack Lace II Boot [TTS]

I may or may not have said “well aren’t you cute” as soon as I saw this jacket! I love all things sherpa, but was especially sold on the look of this one! Once I tried it on, I was blown away by how warm it actually is. Bundle up, buttercup, we’re going to stay outside a little bit longer!

Backcountry Silver Fork 750 Hooded Jacket [TTS, wearing size small] // Frye Sienna Cropped Skinny Jean [size up!] // Sorel Slimpack Lace II Boot [TTS]

I can’t imagine not having a puffer jacket living where I do, and I’m sure several of you feel the same way! I love that this one isn’t super long like so many of them are! While the long ones are great because they keep more of your body warm [and I own some!], there are many days where the longer ones feel like a bit of overkill! And that’s where this shorter version comes into play!

Patagonia Organic Cotton Quilt Snap-T Pullover Sweatshirt [TTS, wearing size small] // Frye Sienna Cropped Skinny Jean [size up!] // Sorel Slimpack Lace II Boot [TTS]

If there’s a texture or pattern that’s having a serious moment right now in fashion, it’s quilting. Quilted purses, quilted sweaters, quilted boots, it’s everywhere! This cute sweatshirt is perfect for exploring the outdoors in or running around town! Throw on one of your cute new jackets and you’re layered up and ready to go for whatever the weather brings!

Sorel Slimpack Lace II Boot [TTS]

Remember when I was talking about quilting up above? Yep, what do you see here on these boots but some more quilting! There’s very few winter boots that can compete with Sorel, and while I love these, these, and these so much, I spotted this classic looking duck boot style and knew I had to have them. Come to mama, cute boots.
