O.F.F. = Outdoor Fashion Friday.
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. As a family, we appreciate clothing that is worth our hard-earned money. It’s what we wear and trust!
I love ExOfficio. Their clothing is functional, flattering and long-lasting. If you’re looking for synthetic underwear and bras, they are my favorite. Perfect for long hikes, skis and backpacking. Note – those said underwear (for men AND women) goes on sale around the holidays usually, so watch for it!
A thick, soft, and warm sweatshirt in a fresh design that is easy to dress up or down. Something about the zipper line and neckline make me feel like I am trying just a little more to look put together. But, since it’s all in the package of a warm fleece (with thumb holes), the secret of comfort is all mine. I know it’s not cheap, but the kind of fleece wrap you wear daily for years and years (even if it’s just in the comfort of your own home…)
I did note that the wrap has a bit of a gap in the middle where it comes together at the bottom. Totally part of the design, but can be a bit tricky if your undershirt peeks through. Looks great with dress, though, too!
To be honest, I haven’t use the convertibleness of this skirt to its full potential – the weather turned on us and a strapless dress just wasn’t sounding particularly warm. However, as a skirt (both with the waistband rolled up or rolled down), is buttery soft. I love that it has a good swing to it, a zippered side “hidden” pocket, and is light enough and wrinkle-free for traveling. It’s a little light for winter use, but pairs surprisingly well with leggings (along as they don’t cling together).
Again, both pieces you could wear to work and then wear outside playing (which is something I insist on with my clothing!)
