I'm partnering with Backcountry to tell you about their incredible Memorial Day sale and share my outfit picks for Spring! For anything that isn't already on sale, you can use code 'SAMPLESALEMOM' to get 15% off your first order at

I'm excited about this for a few reasons - one, amazing brands from one of my favorite sites (I absolutely love the clothes I chose here, read on for links to everything.) Two, this gave me a nice excuse to take a day off and go out for a nice walk in the woods with my family, which is where I am the happiest! And three... new duds for my dog, Felix! (Isn't he the cutest??)

The past couple of Summers, I've taken the kids out west to explore some of our national parks. It's something we look forward to for months. I always order a lot of clothes and gear we'll need for the trip from Backcountry. Well, this year due to the pandemic, no trip unfortunately - but we can still get out and enjoy nature as a family and get some fresh air and exercise.

I was thrilled with the North Face Zoomie jacket I got for the transitional weather we're having in New England lately. It's wind and waterproof, hooded, really flattering on and fits true to size. Also it's fairly light/packable and will be perfect for when I am able to travel again! What I love best about it is the draw-string waist, which is totally adjustable. And it comes in lots of other colors (navy, black, tan, and the yellow is so pretty!)

I'm wearing this lightweight Patagonia patterned crew top (great for working out, runs true to size) and in some of the pics, the amazing Patagonia Hooded Performance Better Sweater. (The Performance models run small in the arms compared to other Better Sweaters, and long and lean overall. It's perfect for running on colder days.)

Here's a full shot of the Patagonia Hooded Performance Better Sweater. My leggings are Prana Pillar seven-eighth length here.

My shoes are these  Salomon Speedcross Trailrunners and wow, they are SO comfortable and also so cute!!! Great arch support. I went with my normal shoe size rather than my normal running shoe size (unlike with most running shoes, you definitely don't need to size up  in these.) My handsome Felix is wearing a brand spankin'  new harness and  leash by Ruffwear. (Backcountry also has  other styles, including front-clip harnesses and a  carry pack style.  We have been using Ruffwear for years and think they are the best for dogs!)

Here are some of my picks from the Memorial Day sale:

1. Boys Patagonia down sweater (Balkan Blue)
2. Salomon Speedcross Trail Running Shoes (I'm wearing these in the pics above)
3. Marmot Hailey Down Jacket
4. North Face Girls' Balanced Rock Insulated Jacket
5. Columbia Arcadia Jacket
6. Men's Patagonia Topley Down Jacket
7. Marmot Halo 6-person Tent
8. Women's North Face Aconcagua Jacket
9. Women's North Face Apex Jacket
10. Marmot Trestles Sleeping Bag
11. Women's Stoic Heather pullover (runs a little small so size up!)
