Zella leggings |  Merrel Moab Ventilator Mid | North Face Vest Long Sleeve Tee | Soft Shell Jacket | Sunglasses

One of the best forms of exercise is walking   Over the weekend we hiked to this gorgeous spot with a waterfall that was still covered with snow and ice.  We are fortunate to have access to a wide selection of hiking trails and take full advantage of it!  After a day in the woods we work up an appetite and always celebrate with a satisfying meal and maybe some warm brownies:)

What to wear

Alexa is wearing a light weight Soft Shell Jacket that’s perfect for trail walks or going for a run.  This jacket is super soft and fits snug so you can layer over it.

The perfect leggings are important and we’ve recently started wearing Zella and love the fit and support.  They come in a variety of styles and colors and aren’t too pricey.  Our vests are a basic as well and come from The North Face.   I wear a vest all the time in the winter.  It keeps my core warm without overheating the rest of my body. Vests are also fun to wear out and about doing your errands.

Shoes!  Trail shoes are very important for stability and support.  When you are walking on uneven terrain it’s easy to slip or twist an ankle.  We like the Merrel mid top and I always buy one half size up to account for thick socks and feel that swell doing exercise.

Wear Sunglasses! Squinting isn’t good for the delicate skin around the eye area and don’t forget to check to make sure your sunglasses block out damaging UV rays.

For Your Skin

Being outdoors in the wintertime is drying so make sure your skin receives the moisture it needs prior to heading out.  Today I’m wearing Charlotte Tilbury  moisturizer and Supergoop CC Cream.  Make sure to bring water to hydrate and snacks to keep up your energy and have fun!

  1. Gorgeous photos of you and your daughter Leslie! In my quest to find the right shoes I have often heard good things about Merrels. I always put my sunglasses on when I go outside, even if it’s only for a couple minutes.

    I have been looking through the Love & Lemons cookbook, there are some really great sounding recipes in there! :)


    1. Hi Linda! ..yes those Merrels are excellent trail shoes. I’m so glad you are enjoying the cookbook. I’d love to hear back if you try something! xo

  2. Leslie,
    Walking is my favorite form of exercise. Are the leggings warm enough in super cold weather? Love the jackets and shoes. We are lucky to have some wonderful trails in our area too. It’s always so invigorating this time of year.
