Fashionable AdventuresFashionable Adventuresen-us30 Ways to Wear 10 Items<p><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Arial;">As I was packing to move a few weeks ago, I came across a list I had made in college with 101 things that made me happy. As I was reading through the list, I found number 63, &ldquo;finding&nbsp; a good deal.&rdquo; There is something in us that thrills at finding a sweet item, for a fabulous price. As I&rsquo;ve gotten older, I&rsquo;ve discovered that &ldquo;finding a good deal&rdquo; is often less about discounts, and more about value. If I were to rewrite this list today I would probably change the wording to say &ldquo;finding a great value,&rdquo; finding something that is worth every penny you spent on it. We all aim to be smart with our money, but let&rsquo;s admit it, we all like to still look great, and enjoy fun, new purchases. So it&rsquo;s all about making valuable shopping decisions. That value concept is what inspired our first &ldquo;The Fashionable Outdoors&rdquo; blog post.&nbsp; What if I told you that you could create around 30 outfits from 1 pair of shoes, 1 scarf/wrap, and 8 tops and bottoms? Well, believe it or not, it&rsquo;s true! Talk about value! 30 ways to wear 10 things?!? That&rsquo;s a whole month of outfits with one load of laundry; a whole vacation wardrobe that fits in a carry-on suitcase.&nbsp; <br /> <br /> For those in need of the 30 second version, here&rsquo;s the quick list of our ten items:</span></span></p> <div style="text-align: left;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height: normal;"><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Arial;"> &bull;

We eventually stopped at 30, and I am sure there were more we could have thought up. Although we knew that so many of the products we carry here at Clear Water Outdoor are multi-purposeful, so finding creative options would not be a hard, we were both surprised at just how versatile these items were. The Rhumba Wrap by Horny Toad ($48) was the biggest value surprise with uses beyond our imaginations, or maybe I should say it&rsquo;s uses kept up with our ever growing imaginations for it. From a scarf to a hair wrap; bathing suit cover up to wrap skirt, and even several types of tops were created from this one item. The Marley Shirt by Horny Toad ($44) is that classic shirt that looks great with just about anything. It paired well with cargo pants for a casual look, and looked fabulous with a skirt for those girly days.&nbsp; The Patagonia Lithia Skirt ($45) is a personal fav of mine. This super cute skirt can be worn as a longer skirt, folded over at the top for a shorter skirt, and here&rsquo;s the kicker&hellip; pulled up to be worn as a halter tank top with a tie around the neck or a strapless, sassy tank. The Lole Touring Skirt ($60) my counterpart&rsquo;s favorite, is the same concept of transitional skirt to tank. This more classic looking skirt can be worn short, long, or again, as a tank. The Touring Skirt has a cute synch at the bottom to add to the flexible fit, both as a skirt and as a top. This skirt-shirt is also made out of a quick drying material making it ideal for traveling! Another great travel piece is the Splash Roll-up Pant by Kuhl ($69). This pair of pants is that same quick drying idea, and it has the ability to roll and snap up the bottoms of the pants into a cute pair of capris. How often do you leave in the morning for a day out only to be frustrated by your clothing choices by the end of the day? Weather warms up&hellip; roll the pants up. Weather cools down&hellip; roll &lsquo;em down.&nbsp;&nbsp; Starts raining&hellip; no worries, the pants will dry fast. Gets super hot out&hellip; the breathable fabric will keep you cool.<br /> <br /> Sometimes versatility isn&rsquo;t just about different ways to wear something, sometimes it&rsquo;s about all the different places you can wear that same piece. That is definitely the case with the Sonja Top by Prana ($48). This beautiful tank top fits well, staying in place for all your yoga moves or lunges at the gym.&nbsp; Then, throw a cardigan over top, put on &nbsp;a nice pair of jeans or a skirt, and you&rsquo;re ready for a date. In need of that great cardigan that can do all, be all? The Lole Essential Cardigan ($90) is where it&rsquo;s at!&nbsp; They weren&rsquo;t kidding when they named it the Essential Cardigan.&nbsp; This piece can be worn with&hellip; well, just about anything! Classy enough to dress up with, but still that great active fit and fabric, perfect for wearing to the gym or studio. I have to admit that I thought finding a single pair of shoes to wear with all of our outfits was darn near impossible, but I was wrong. The magic shoe was the Westwater Wedge by Teva ($70). This shoe is designed with water channels for walking in and out of water, great comfort for all day wear, and casual/dressy appearance that works with a plethora of looks and occasions.<br /> Other items are valuable because they are those go-to pieces that everyone needs to have in their closest. The Outdoor Research Reverie Short ($60)is exactly that. It&rsquo;s your go-to pair of khaki shorts whether you are walking around town, around Europe, or around the mountains. The classic look will stand the test of time, as will the well made fabric.&nbsp; Another must have item is the Bellis Shirt by Kuhl ($48). This burnt out beauty can be worn over and under a variety of tanks and tops, adding a different look each time. So lightweight, it&rsquo;s easy to pack and even easier to wear. <br /> <br /> So whether you are looking to put together your new spring wardrobe, or packing for that much needed vacation, remember the value of versatile, beautiful clothing. These were just 10 items from the hundreds to choose from at Clear Water Outdoor. Stop in, and start finding your own &ldquo;30 ways to wear.&rdquo;<br /> <br /> With Love,<br /> Kellie &amp; Crystal</span></span></p> </div> <div style="text-align: left;"> <meta name="Title" content=""> <meta name="Keywords" content=""> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;

Or have you seen a guy in his 30s with bright lime green sneakers, heavily washed whiskered and torn denim jeans, and a futuristic graphic tee that makes him look as if he has walked straight out a rap music video? The truth is, these outfits appear everyday, along with other horrendous outfits. In a world that is so fashion forward, it seems that there is not a lot of guidance for men out there. This is where we come in!<br /> <br /> With a suggestion from one of our coworkers, we set out to make a set of three &quot;Women approved outfits for Men.&quot; The outfits include; beach casual (everyday wear), outdoorsmen (travel and active wear), and finally our semi-formal outfit (perfect for date night). We also enlisted some of our unwilling coworkers; <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/cwo-staffmembers.aspx">Luke, Duda, and Dan</a>. With a few revisions after receiving stern, &quot;I'm not wearing that&quot; and some eye-rolling, Kellie and I came up with some outfits to jazz up these three!<br /> <br /> <strong>A few stylish tips to get you started before we dig in too far;</strong><br /> 1. Do go towards great fabrics... the better the material, the longer it will last. Many fabrics will feel different on the skin and are appropriate for different seasons. Right now we are all about organic cotton, not so hot about merino wool!<br /> 2. Color is great but please don't dress like an Easter egg exploded! A few colorful accessories such as bright belt and matching colorful watch is a great way to add a pop of color.<br /> 3. Dress for the seasons. In the summer we want to see brighter colors, not so much darks. Plus darker colors will attract heat.<br /> 4. Get rid of your tattered and torn jeans. Unless you want to look like you're still in high school, upgrade to a great dark wash denim.<br /> 5. One of the biggest improvements that you can make is great fitting clothing. Most men wear clothing that is too large. Choose clothing that is snug so that it fits your body but make sure that it is not too tight. It is also important to find the right length of pants for your body type!<br /> <strong><br /> Now for the outfits... drumroll please!</strong><br /> <br /> <img width="250" vspace="5" hspace="5" height="375" border="0" align="right" src="/userfiles/image/Clear%20Water%20Outdoor/image/Fashionable%20Adventures/danAFTER.jpg" alt="" />Dan is wearing our beach casual outfit. This outfit is perfect for any summer day and combines a great mix of muted and bold colors, as well as fabrics such as seersucker. Seersucker is a thin, all cotton fabric that mostly consists of vertical strips and is a great option for spring and summer clothing. The weaving also appears to be wrinkled in areas due to the way that the threads bunch together. We paired the <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-horny_toad_seersucka_mens-5809.html">Horny Toad Seersucka Shorts</a> with a cool <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-endurance_conspiracy_crossroads_mens-5702.html">Endurance Conspiracy Graphic Tee</a> (could take the polo off for the beach and put the polo back on to go to dinner) and Patagonia's <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-patagonia_sandstone_polo_mens-5839.html">Sandstone Polo</a>. This polo is a great option as it is made out of Vitaliti Performance Fabric which will dry quickly and drapes nicely. We finished off Dan's look with a pair of leather <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-olukai_kukui_mens-5748.html">Olukai Sandals</a> and some sharp polarized (will remove the glare off of water) <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-kaenon_kabin-14.html">Kaenon Sunglasses</a>.<br /> <br /> Shop Dan's beach casual outfit:<br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-patagonia_sandstone_polo_mens-5839.html">Patagonia Sandstone Polo $69</a><br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-horny_toad_seersucka_mens-5809.html">Horny Toad Seersucka Short $62</a><br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-endurance_conspiracy_crossroads_mens-5702.html">Endurance Conspiracy Crossroads Teeshirt $30</a><br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-olukai_kukui_mens-5748.html">Olukai Kukui Sandals $100</a><br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-kaenon_kabin-14.html">Kaenon Kabin Sunglasses $204</a><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <img width="250" vspace="5" hspace="5" height="375" border="0" align="left" src="/userfiles/image/Clear%20Water%20Outdoor/image/Fashionable%20Adventures/dudaAFTER.jpg" alt="" />For Duda we decided to deck him out in full bold colored outdoorsmen apparel. Perfect for a day hike around the nearest state park or for a fly fishing adventure with the guys. No matter what, he will still look good! We started with the short sleeve <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-mountain_hardwear_canyon_shirt_mens-5607.html">Mountain Hardwear Canyon Shirt</a> which is designed specifically for hiking and backpacking. Its seams fit perfectly under packs, is wrinkle resistant, quick drying, and offers UPF 30 sun protection! We then choose a great breathable pant, <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-patagonia_rock_guide_zipoff_pants_mens-5178.html">Patagonia's Rock Guide Pant</a>, which allows a quick change from pants to shorts. These pants are meant for the active man and made from high-quaity stretch nylon. We finished Duda's outfit with a <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-patagonia_trucker_hat-3456.html">trucker hat </a>and the brand new <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-teva_gnarkosi_mens-5890.html">Teva Gnarsoki</a> water shoes.

Because of his fun spirit, we put him in a semi-formal dinner (or date night) appropriate outfit! We started with <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-horny_toad_peter_mens-4054.html">Horny Toad's Peter T-shirt</a>, a basic undershirt that picked up some of the brown color in the button-down. Prana's organic cotton, <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-prana_whiskey_ss_mens-5920.html">Whiskey Short Sleeve Button-Down</a> was the next addition to Luke's outfit. Featuring western style plaid stitching and chest pockets, this is a great way to bring out some bold colors. The button-down is finished off with pearlized buttons which adds a bit of variety to the shirt. It is also a great shirt that mixes textures and materials. We then choose <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-patagonia_regular_fit_jeans_reg_mens-2358.html">Patagonia's Regular Fit Jeans</a>. These jeans were designed to be rugged for extreme conditions but also offer a softer side as they are made out of organic cotton. They also feature a button fly closure and the classic 5-pockets. As for shoes we chose the new biodegradable slip on, <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-simple_gumshoe_mens-5858.html">Gumshoe</a>, by Simple. We finished Luke's outfit off with a pair of M Shades by <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/brand-optic_nerve-147.html">Optic Nerve</a> sunglasses. These sunglasses are a great way to add color as the lenses pick up the burnt orange color in his shirt!<br /> <br /> Shop Luke's semi-formal outfit:<br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-horny_toad_peter_mens-4054.html">Horny Toad Peter Teeshirt $32</a><br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-prana_whiskey_ss_mens-5920.html">Prana Whiskey SS $50</a><br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-patagonia_regular_fit_jeans_reg_mens-2358.html">Patagonia Regular Fit Organic Cotton Jeans $79</a><br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/brand-optic_nerve-147.html">M Shades Mainframe Sunglasses $20</a><br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-simple_gumshoe_mens-5858.html">Simple Gumshoe $60</a><br /> <br /> With these helpful style tips would be surprised if women didn't start to notice you more.

From swimming and paddling to running in the rain, every athlete needs that vital accessory close in case of an emergency. There are a variety of cases already out on the market which will keep your electronics safe. However, they tend to be large and bulky dry sacks or plastic containers. Using either of these two items does not allow a comfortable run or swim as you always have to hold on to it, and that can be a pain! Not anymore... there is a new contender on the market with a great product that we are proud to carry for the second season, <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/brand-dry_case-163.html">Dry Case</a>. <br /> <br /> Dry Case is great because there are different sizes for the different electronic devises that you may want to carry with you on your next adventure or paddle across the lake. We carry the standard size that fits cameras and most phones, including the iPhone and many Droids. The difference is that Dry Case uses a vacuum seal to waterproof your gear. This means that since air cannot get in neither can water!<br /> <br /> <br /> <img vspace="5" hspace="5" border="0" align="left" alt="" style="width: 325px; height: 215px;" src="/userfiles/image/Clear%20Water%20Outdoor/image/Fashionable%20Adventures/Components_DC-13.jpg" />Each case has a variety of features that range from a lanyard to a port for earphones (which I must say is great for listening to your iPod and knowing that you don't have to be extra careful)! <span>They also make special </span></span></span><span><a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-dry_case_drybuds-4464.html"><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Arial;">ear buds</span></span></a></span><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span> which are completely submersible and waterproof.</span><br /> <span><span><br /> Additional features of the </span></span></span></span><span><span><a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-dry_case_drycase-4501.html"><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Arial;">standard case</span></span></a></span></span><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span><span> include a buoyant armband to allow for personal transporting when storage or space isn't an option. </span></span><span>If an armband isn't for you, Dry Case also offers a </span></span></span><span><a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-dry_case_sportbelt-4463.html"><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Arial;">hip belt</span></span></a></span><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Arial;"><span>.</span><span><span> You can also take pictures with your phone or camera through the flexible crystal clear paneling!<br /> <br /> So are you asking yourself yet &quot;Well how does it work?&quot; Here's how... <span style="font-size: x-small;">(courtesy of DryCase.com)</span><br /> <strong>1.)</strong> <strong>Slide in your device</strong> &ndash; Twist the clasps outward to open the DryCASE, and then simply slide in the device that you would like to protect. <br /> <strong>2.)</strong> <strong>Lock the closure shut</strong> &ndash; Twist the clasps inward to close and lock the DryCASE. Position your device how you would like to use it inside the DryCASE. When you remove the air creating a vacuum it will secure the device in place.<br /> <strong>3.)</strong> <strong>Pump out all the air</strong> &ndash; Simply squeeze the pump until you have removed all the air and can&rsquo;t pump it any more. After you have removed all the air the DryCASE should be tightly sealed around the contents inside and the pump should be completely flat. You can now remove the hand pump and place the safety cap on.<br /> <br /> Dry Case is continuing to build their brand presence on the market and they are also getting some help with some big time gear reviews from ESPN.

Suckle!Pantone has long been the leader in the newest color trends and they are often the deciding factor on which colors are &quot;in&quot; and which colors are &quot;out&quot; for each season. Most times when they make their color picks, the colors end up everywhere... from advertising to clothing and every where in between. <br /> <br /> <img vspace="5" hspace="5" border="0" align="right" alt="" src="/userfiles/image/Clear%20Water%20Outdoor/image/Fashionable%20Adventures/honeysuckle.jpg" style="width: 115px; height: 114px;" />The color that will be taking the spotlight this summer is <strong>Honeysuckle!</strong> This light pinkish/coralish color is full of life and energy. The pinkish color reminds me of warm summer days with an ice cream cone in hand and tunes jamming in the background. Even the name almost has a certain taste to it... very sweet and full of sugar! Another great benefit of the color is that it boosts spirits due to it's very cheerful quality. It's sweet and subtle but when used as an accent color can really make a statement! Please don't dress in head to toe Honeysuckle... I don't want to see a bottle of Pepto-Bismal walking around! Otherwise, experiment and have fun!<br /> <br /> <br /> Other colors from the summer 2011 lineup include; Coral Rose, Peapod, Beeswax, Silver Peony, Russet, Reggata, Blue Curacao, Lavendar, and Silver Cloud<br /> <br /> <img width="400" vspace="5" hspace="5" height="127" border="0" align="left" alt="" src="/userfiles/image/Clear%20Water%20Outdoor/image/Fashionable%20Adventures/10%20spring%20shades.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <strong><br /> <br /> Here are our favorites from the store that have a little Honeysuckle to them!</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-prana_chai_tee_womens-5239.html"><img width="150" vspace="5" hspace="5" height="150" border="0" align="right" src="/userfiles/image/Clear%20Water%20Outdoor/image/Fashionable%20Adventures/prana_chai_tee_womens_10567.jpg" alt="" />Prana Chai Tee&nbsp;$45</a><br /> <span id="spnPrProductInfo">Spicy and delicious--just like its namesake--our Chai Tee has a joyfully effervescent print on burnout print cotton/polyester and is garment dyed for creamy softness.</span><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.clearwateroutdoor.com/product-detail-horny_toad_marley_womens-3143.html"><span id="spnPrTitle"><img width="150" vspace="5" hspace="5" height="158" border="0" align="left" alt="" src="/userfiles/image/Clear%20Water%20Outdoor/image/Fashionable%20Adventures/horny_toad_marley_womens_11360.jpg" />Horny Toad Marley Women's $44</span></a><br /> <span id="spnPrProductInfo">The Marley is a raw-edged, graceful t-shirt that instinctively follows your lead with a subtly shaped fit and stretchy Samba slub knit (a collaboration of eco-friendly Tencel&reg;, cotton, and spandex).

One Colorado-based purse company, O Loves M, is doing just that, and she's doing it in style!<br /> <br /> While in the downward dog yoga pose one day, Merle O'Brien (founder) wondered where all of the used yoga mats were going. From that moment she was inspired to create O Loves M. She contacted companies to purchase new and unused materials that were headed to landfills, and those are the fundamental materials used in her bags today! Materials range from yoga mats to Chaco webbing and recycled fabrics. These super cute, earth friendly purses come at a wallet friendly price too ranging between $15-$62. <br /> <br /> <img width="160" hspace="5" height="120" border="0" align="right" src="/userfiles/image/Clear%20Water%20Outdoor/image/Blog%20Images/cache_240_240_ECHEOli.jpg" alt="" />We just received our first order from O Loves M, and as we were stocking them and arranging them on our shelves, we (well at least I) were already secretly planning which ones we were going to claim for ourselves. <br /> <br /> My favorite is the &quot;Heather&quot; which measures in at &nbsp;7&times;8.5&times;2 and has a long thin Chaco strap. The top of the bag has a zipper to provide safety and security. An inside and outside pocket also make it easy to stay organized.<br /> <br /> <img width="160" hspace="5" height="120" border="0" align="left" src="/userfiles/image/Clear%20Water%20Outdoor/image/Blog%20Images/cache_240_240_MTDA.jpg" alt="" />Kellie's favorite is the &quot;Daley&quot; which features a yoga mat for the back and bottom, but has fabric on the front. The mixture of fabrics give the bag a whimsical touch, while 2 inside pockets make it practical. The snap closure also helps keep your items safe and secure.<br /> <br /> Stop in the store or check them out online and find out what the rage is all about. We are predicting these will not stay on the shelves for long! <br /> <br /> Remember, using this purse makes a difference. You are not only carrying a stylish bag but you are also keeping products out of the landfil!
