Beauty in Motion.
We are totally in love with the LOWA Levante GTX Lo WS, a lightweight, versatile shoe that will conquer anything from a day hiking to a weekend camping and everything in between. It is low cut, sleek, breathable, waterproof, and feels oh-so-good on our feet. This shoe is handcrafted in Europe and designed especially for women. Yes, please! Suggested retail: $150

Sweat in Style.
These inspirational statement tanks from Motto + Fleur make us feel beautiful, confident, and stylish, even when we're sweating. Designed specifically for moms, each message provides an accurate perspective of motherhood in a world saturated with highlight reels. Suggested retail: $24
A Superstar for Skin.
Our fall skin routine isn't complete without Bella Schneider Beauty CULMINÉ Glow & Go Tinted Moisturizing Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30. This anti-aging moisturizer with daytime sun protection delivers superior hydration, is sheer enough to wear under makeup and has a hint of tint for a beautiful glow. Suggested retail: $45
Mom Hair, Don't Care.
What do we love best about the Ponyflo? Everything! This isn't an ordinary hat, it's a patented reconstructed baseball-like cap with an adjustable opening at the crown, allowing for a high ponytail or messy bun. It comes in an assortment of super-cute colors and styles. Goodbye, bad hair days! Suggested retail: $24.99
Put a Ring on it.
We’re suckers for great products that are both cute and practical, and we found just that with Groove Life silicone rings and breathable Apple Watch bands. They're made of durable, high-performance silicone featuring breathable grooves that allow air to circulate and moisture to flow out. Perfect for active moms like us! Suggested retail: $29.95 for the rings, $49.95 for the watch bands.
Cozy and Chic.
Just because it's getting colder doesn't mean you can't look cute, and that's exactly why we love the Cashmere Circle Scarves from Jack and Mary Designs. Created from recycled cashmere sweaters, each one is double-sided, cozy, and stylish. Suggested retail: $70

Hydration On the Go.
Hydration is key to a successful walk. Our cup of choice? The 99 Walks bottle, of course! This 17 ounce, double-wall insulated stainless steel bottle keeps our water cold for up to 24 hours or hot for up to 12. Suggested retail: $20
Pamper your Lips.
Fall weather means dry air, but we've found just the thing to pamper our lips, FOUR: Organics Lip Balm. This set of balms includes a special blend of just four 100% organic and natural ingredients: Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Peppermint Oil. Suggested retail: $18 for the set of three
Our Happy Feet.
When our daily walks leave our feet craving some pampering, we turn to Baby Foot Exfoliation Foot Peel, a gentle and effective process utilizing natural extracts to remove unwanted dead skin cells on our feet, revealing soft, healthy skin. Pair it with the Baby Foot Smoothing Gel, which turns into liquid and moisturizes the skin. Suggested retail: $32.50 for both
