My favorite kind of weekend plans are the ones that I get away and “escape” work/responsibilities and unplug! (Besides being a mom – that will always be my favorite responsibility :)). It’s so good for the soul, important for your wellbeing AND for your relationships, especially if your job involves lots of screen time like mine does!
My favorite spot to escape is at the lake – whether that be at my dad and step mom’s lake (pictured here) or at Tom’s parent’s lake cabin! There is something so peaceful, simple and calm about time spent here, and it always involves great time spent with family.
Something I never fail to forget on these trips are my weekend escape essentials: a comfy pullover, sweatpants, comfy shoes, sunglasses, and a backpack to carry any other personal items and necessities – the backpack is especially handy to carry anything of mine, Tom’s and/or Keldon’s if we hop on the pontoon or boat for a ride! Backcountry carries all of these pieces, and most can be found in their Women’s Lifestyle Collection!
Backcountry is an online specialty retailer that has clothing and outdoor recreational gear for women, men, and kids. They carry some of my favorite brands (Free People, Patagonia, The North Face, Sorel, Birkenstock, Ray-Ban, AG, Nike) and tons more! Essentially, Backcountry has everything you would need for your next adventure. 🙂

I have this Patagonia Re-Tool Snap -T Fleece Pullover in the white/cream version from years ago, but just picked up this new color in the tailored grey for this year! The fleece is so soft, warm, and I love the quarter snap and kangaroo pocket details! I have always sized up in Patagonia pullovers, and am wearing a size medium here. They come in tons of cute color options!
My first Monrow purchase were these Super Soft Vintage Sweatpants. I love the color and the soft, lightweight material! The perfect jogger to wear out and about or to go to bed in! Run true to size, wearing a small. Also come in black!
I purchased my first pair of Birkenstock Arizona Sandals in rose gold this past spring, and I loved them so much that I grabbed this white pair in the narrow fit! I personally love the narrow fit even more. Note: they run small, I went up 1 size!
I’ve always been a huge Ray-Ban fan, and love the selection of styles Backcountry has to offer on their website. This pair was my favorite: a twist on their classic aviator! A timeless pair that will take you from summer to winter.
Ever since the backpack trend came back a few years ago, I haven’t looked back! Practical, spacious, and the best style of bag for moms with littles that need their hands free! I absolutely loved this cute white and black print grid pattern on the BAGGU Drawstring Backpack. The straps are adjustable, the canvas is high quality, and the side pockets are perfect for your phone, sunglasses or water bottle!
As always, thanks for stopping by and reading today’s post! 🙂
