Gear for Everyday - Winter Edition
Katie and I've been talking. Since we had so much fun putting together the gift guides we thought we should do something like that on a more regular basis. So I bring to you, Gear for (fill in the blank). I don't know, we will probably change the title but at the heart of it we want to share with you gear that we use whether it's for play or the everyday, gear that we covet, and maybe roundups on one specific item of gear. We will bring our expertise to the table as well as those who are directly involved in the outdoor industry (aka our husbands and friends). We hope that you will find them useful and please feel free to use the comment section to share any gear that we might have left out. Okay, I'll shut up now. Enjoy!
1. Patagonia Slingshot Down Vest ($149) Better yet, find a similar vintage vest at the thrifts! I love this classic look. And I always forget how useful vests can be. Sometimes it's all you need.
2. Jigsaw & Wavyy Hats by All Knitwear ($44) My winter coats tend towards the neutral. I love the idea of wearing a bright hat with them to look a bit more pulled together. And something like this can easily crossover from wearing it everyday to the mountain.
3. Wigwam Knit Cotton Socks ($11.90) I wear the natural ones with my desert boots and boyfriend jeans. They are the epitome of cozy.
4. Kletterwerks Nobel Pocket ($59) Most of the time I carry around a diaper bag, but when I'm by myself I just need a few things. I've decided a clutch might be the perfect bag for me. The problem has been most of them are a little too fancy for my day to day. That's until I saw the Nobel Pocket. I love how durable it looks, yet the all black is rather chic. D, are you reading this?
5. The Warmer by Yokoo ($55) There is no question in my mind, one day I will buy this. Growing up we had something similar. We'd wear them skiing or when it was really cold outside. This is the adult version. Now, which color to choose?
6. Market Tote by Duluth Pack ($85) This is some serious everyday gear. The thing is big, indestructible, and I could throw in the Nobel Pocket to keep all my small things in place. Not to mention, all the bags are still made in their 100-year-old factory in Duluth, MN, and each bag is hand signed by the sewer that makes it. I'm sold. photo via - Simple Lovely
We're off for our annual holiday get-together with friends. This year is especially special since we also get to spend time with friends who just moved to Oakland. See you in a bit!
