In search of fashion at Cabela's

This is the true story of a rainy Saturday, where one fashion blogger was forced to shop for sausage casing at Cabela’s. God love my fiancé, but there are only so many “hot snack stick” kits I can peruse before I get antsy. So I decided to suss out the footwear and casual apparel selection instead.

Off I went, first to the shoe section. While there was not a kitten heel to be found (not like I expected there to be), I did spy quite an impressive array of bad-weather boots. These North Face patriotic styles were really hard to walk away from. I loved them.

And these little rain mocs in gray and neon trim? Much cuter than my basic duck boots. Even the fleece-lining is neon.

A band collar shirtdress? Well this isn’t terrible!

I love this sweater. It’s got a performance look, but felt super cozy – and for under $40 you can’t beat that.

Floral chamois shirts? Now you’re speaking my language, Cabelas!

Quilted jackets with a nice, fleecey lining and military details from Cabela’s own line. Also available in an army green but this navy one tugged at my heartstrings a bit.

All in all, if you look hard enough, there’s definitely some good pieces to be found at Cabela’s. Though I wouldn’t go back to find any “good for work” or “going out on the town” attire, it’s a great spot for sweaters and warm-weather gear. And for sausage making kits.

What’s the best thing you’ve ever bought at Cabela’s?
