BAREBONES: Stylish Useful Outdoor Gear
I love the great outdoors. And, with a little guy to inspire, I think there’s nowhere better than nature to help him learn to explore the world internally and externally. But, the thought of packing up and heading into the woods with a toddler can seem daunting. Plus, most outdoor gear is just so ugly. Is that wrong of me to say? I just don’t think that stuff has to look so “outdoorsy”. Why is that even a look? Well, in a recent interview with creative VP for BAREBONES, Ann Merrill she said something that made my heart sing. The words that she lives by are this:
“Don’t make something unless it’s both necessary and useful; but if it’s both necessary and useful, don’t hesitate to make it beautiful!”
Thank you, Ann, for making my outdoor supply dreams come true. And as a mother of six I know she gets that everything has to be multi-useful and durable to make it on an outdoor adventure as a family, too.
And, because the folks at BAREBONES are so amazing, they’re offering Metro Mom Club readers 40% off until 12/31/2015!!! Just use the code MMCBB.

You’d better get to shopping.
Here are the details on their rad little lanterns!
