Our (almost) weekly segment featuring our favorite styles for the season. Everything I share are pieces that can be worn all day long and stand up to the “use and abuse” of serious adventures. While I am far from a “fashionista”, I appreciate clothing that is worth my hard-earned money. It’s what I wear and love!
Kavu as been around for a very long time – over twenty years now. Based out of Seattle, Washington, their clothing is a standard in the outdoor industry. However, for me personally, they hit some years where I wasn’t all too impressed with anything new coming out. I sort of wrote them off as a “have-been” and looked elsewhere for my clothing.
This year, however, I decided to look again and was pleasantly surprised with some new styles that have become standards in my wardrobe. Their look is still funky and functional, but I love their new designs, patterns and styles. And, as always, you can rely on the pieces to hold up for adventure after adventure (and wash, after wash). Here’s a few of my top-picks.

I love the pattern on this hoody and that it’s just a good neutral color. Polyester so it holds its shape and adds some form-fitted warmth. A sweatshirt you can wear year-round.
I have this one in “winter” and wear it at least weekly with a skirt. Again, great design, good feel and comfortable fit. I have washed it literally almost 15 times and it looks as good as new. That’s what happens when you have little kids around and my clothes need to be able to keep up!
I LOVE the pattern on these. They are a little lower rise than I usually prefer, but most people like that. Not as much stretch as the Tara Tight (see below), but great weight for winter wear.
Super comfortable, great supportive waistband and fit, work well under almost any skirt (or with a tunic).
A good classic skirt that goes with anything, wears well, hangs well, and is stretchy enough to do anything you want to in it. And a little pocket for keeping a few essentials in it (though not big enough for a smart phone….)
