Northface is for Sissies

Cath and I brought nearly identical outfits to mountains last weekend: sunglasses, faux-flannels, skinny cargos/jeans, and Frye boots. You know I own a pair of Northface (ugly) pants and a practical fleece, but the thought of packing practically made my face do what it’s doing in the photo above right.

Here’s Cath’s version of chic mountainwear:

On Cath: flannel and tee from H&M? Blank cargos from Rockit Boutique (but you can also get them at Shopbop), Frye boots, gifted Michael Stars sunnies, gifted Saddleback bag.

My (Lar’s) version:
I have that crocheted poncho draped around my mountain outfit tableau (so natural, I know!) because it’s one of my favorite cold-weather pieces in my closet. Knitted by my uber-talented Aunt Lizzie, it keeps me very warm and puts most of my low-quality trendy clothes to shame.

On Lar/me: flannel and bag are thrifted, jeans are Blank, boots are Frye, sunnies are gifted Michael Stars, and the bracelets are a mix from NOVICA and AE.

Oh and I included this gratuitous shot of my sunglasses below because I love the purple/brown colors on the inside of the frames (the outside is dark brown). I love a little oo-la-la for the wearer.

  1. you girls are still just as adorable as ever! looking by your pics make me want to spend some quality time outdoors . . . and i’m definitely not an outdoorsy type! 😉

  2. The styling in some of these photographs are catalog-worthy!

    I will say however that nothing, not even these gorgeous photos, make me want to go outdoors. I am just not an outdoorsy let’s-go-hike-the-Andes-today kind of gal. Give me a computer, a latte, heater in the winter and A/C in the summer, and I’m good.

  3. LOL, love the title of this post!! I’m a sissy b/c I drag my Northface gear with me to the mountains haha!=P Wow, you girls are so stylin’ in ur mountain outfits!! Love both versions and that poncho is amazing! Your aunt is very talented:) Loving the pics below, too! Such a gorgeous area!

    Have a great weekend and Happy Halloween!:)
