Oh hey August, it’s me again. Already. How in the world we made it here so quickly is beyond me, but one thing I do know for certain: getting dressed in this season is hard. Another year, same pickle. I’ve said it once [or twelve times, but who’s counting?] and I’ll say it again– dressing for transitional weather is tricky. While I’m holding onto every last minute of summer and soaking up the sunshine while it lasts, the cooler days have already started making an appearance around these parts. If you live anywhere that kicks off the mornings feeling crisp and cool, but brings pit stains by lunchtime, then you know the struggle is real. Mother Nature can be such a tease. It’s no secret dressing for this time in-between can be difficult, but never fear, the most wonderful time of year is here! Insert the Backcountry Semi-Annual Sale.

Three words: layer, layer, LAYER. If you’re anything like me and fail miserably at judging temps throughout the day, layers are your new BFF. Stay snug as a ladybug in the cooler mornings with a lightweight cardigan. And you know the drill. When you start running hot by mid-day, you can slip it off and still feel put together with comfortable joggers and a fun pair of sneaks. Stress free, sweat free.
I get it. Whether you’re making your way into the grocery store or breaking out your best joggers for curbside pick-up these days, one way or another, you’ve got errands to run. A lightweight jacket is a fun, yet practical way to elevate any outfit. There’s just something about a bomber jacket that instantly makes a gal feel oh-so much cooler than I actually am. But hey, a girl can dream. Did I mention the most comfortable sandals made for living life on the go? If you don’t already own a pair, let me be the first to assure you these are worth every. single. penny and will last year after year, season after transitional season.
