I cannot believe the holidays are so soon. Our family life has been so hectic and rushed lately. We are truly embracing the holiday madness. We will be traveling, so both John and I are trying to tie all the loose ends on the work front and still prep the family for the festivities. Life has been just a tad more stressful than usual. Over the weekend, we decided to finally slow down and take the kids for a walk. We moved to this area last year and we are just now discovering all the local parks and trails. Long Island is truly beautiful. We all enjoyed our little hike (some more than others).
The winters in NY can be brutal, I have plenty of parkas and puffer coats (winter coat review in THIS post). But I have been wanting a Patagonia jacket for years now. I have heard so many amazing things about the brand and the quality. I finally decided to get the Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket. Eek! I am so happy with my purchase. I ordered it from Backcountry. I have been shopping the retailer for years! A friend introduced me to Backcountry back in 2012 when we were both looking for savings on Sorel boots. Backcountry has amazing selection of clothing, footwear and gear for all interests and lifestyles, whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast or a regular gal like myself.
Best news! I am so excited to share Backcountry has an exclusive offer for BlushingRoseStyle readers!!!

The jacket is super light, packable and yet so warm! It fits TTS (I am wearing size Small). If you are in between sizes or plan on wearing chunky sweaters under, it may be a good idea to size up. I was on a hunt for a warm everyday jacket, which was comfortable for driving and easy to move around in. Some of the puffer coats I own are a bit too bulky for everyday life.

I have been a huge fan of Sorel boots for years now. I own the Shearling Wedge Boots in camel and I love them! Great quality, super comfy despite the wedge sole and waterproof. I wanted a black pair of boots, so naturally Sorel was my first choice. I am obsessed with these. Super comfy even for long walks!
