While living in a warm state sounds so appealing during some of the super cold temperatures here in Indiana, one thing I love in our state is the joy of experiencing all four seasons. I am excited to be partnering with Backcountry today to share a few pieces I believe are worth investing in during the cold months!
I have lived in Indiana my entire life, and I grew up in the country! My siblings and I were constantly outside all year long! From hiking in the woods by our house to sledding down the big hill in our backyard, outdoor living was just in our blood!
Briton and I both also attended a small Christian school surrounded by woods! We recently took Henry and Lucy to our “old stomping grounds”, and hiked!
Lucy and I both wore our warm Patagonia fleeces and Sorel boots! I now own this fleece in several colors because it is so warm by itself or under a coat or vest! Lucy loves her fleece too! It’s so good, that Lucy needed a fleece for her closet!
Warm and waterproof boots are also a must in winter! Henry and Lucy both walk home from school each day, and while it is only one mile, during the winter months, their feet need warm shoes! These Sorel boots are perfect for Lucy because they are similar to a tennis shoe, easy to get on and off, comfortable, warm, and waterproof! I have had my Sorel boots for over a year and still turn to them time and time again in the winter! They are warm, comfortable, and waterproof! My hat and Lucy’s hat are also incredible warm!
We love our gear and look forward to many more outdoor adventures this winter!
Fit Tip: Size up in the women’s fleece. I sized up one size to M. Everything else is true to size. Lucy typically wearing a M, but I sized up one size to L to get more wear out of her fleece. Leggings linked are similar ones. I am wearing the “Salt Grey” color, and Lucy is wearing the “Forge Grey”.

And while Briton and Henry were behind the camera during this hike, I am linking their favorite gear here:
