Aventura Clothing Winter Line ~ Ambassador Picks

Every season a big highlight for me is seeing what Aventura Clothing has in their new women's clothing line.  As a married mom with kids who still loves fashion… discovering Aventura has changed my life.  It fits right in that sweet spot of attractive, stylish, on-trend clothing - while avoiding dressing like a teenager, or a grandma.  It boggles my mind that more clothing companies don’t see that huge need, but at least Aventura does. Add in comfort, eco-friendly fabrics, and that it's a family owned business.  You don't need to look any further.  Here are my top Ambassador outfit picks from the Aventura Clothing Fall/Winter 2016 line.  I've also got a few Ambassador Coupon Codes to share, good for 60% off your Aventura order, so leave a comment if you'd like to try one of these great pieces. Ambassador Pick - Aventura Winter Outfits In addition to the three outfits I receive as an Aventura Ambassador, I love their clothes so much that I end up purchasing several additional items … [Read more...]

Summer Beach Essentials Roundup 2016

I know what you're thinking.  Why is the "mountain mom" writing a gear review for beach products?  Well, first off... I know a good outdoor gear product when I see one.  And many of these awesome eco-friendly, lightweight, and easy-to-pack items work just as fabulously for an adventure in the woods, as a day at the beach. And although we live in Colorado, almost every family vacation we take involves heading to a coast for some ocean time.  We recently returned from a road trip to California, where we were able to enjoy multiple beaches along the Pacific Ocean.  Before we left, I packed a few summer beach essentials to take with us. So here you go.  Check out these clever products, perfect for your next day at the beach (or mountains!). Matador Pocket Blanket The Pocket Blanket is perfect for comfortable seating while watching the sunset at the beach —no more bulky blankets. Ultra compact made of lightweight, revolutionary parachute material Water- and … [Read more...]

Ecoths Gift Guide & Instagram Giveaway [Ended 12/8]

  As an Aventura Ambassador, a couple of years ago I was excited to see the development of their new men's line:  Ecoths.   This great looking mens collection offers the perfect complement to the outdoorsy chic woman dressed in Aventura.  The garments my husband has tried have all been very soft (many of the shirts of 100% organic cotton), comfortable, and include design details that set them apart from any other brands he's worn. Based on the same eco-friendly principles as Aventura, I appreciate that Ecoths also has a unique socially conscious initiative to fight hunger.  For every Ecoths piece purchased, they donate 3 meals. In just their first year of business 2014, they donated over 48,000 meals throughout the US to food banks in their sales reps territories. The best part is, Ecoths is now available for online sale directly from the AventuraClothing.com site... which makes viewing and shopping for these awesome styles easier than ever.  So if you are looking … [Read more...]

Aventura Clothing Fall Favorites & Discount Code

Because I'm an Aventura Ambassador, you may have heard me talk about this eco-friendly brand, or seen some photos I've posted of myself in their outdoorsy chic styles.  Aventura is a small, family owned clothing brand that use green initiatives in their business practices.  I love the fabrics they use, such as organic cotton, recycled polyester, and modal (my favorite - so soft!).  I have become a loyal fan of their quality and fabulously cute clothes. Being an Ambassador allows me to select three outfits from the Fall 2015 season.  Then I proceed to order a bunch more on my own.  Because I'm addicted.  But that's another story.  Suffice it to say, I get a nice overview of the entire line and am happy to share my Aventura Clothing Fall Favorites with you.

Apply to Be an Aventura Ambassador

This past year, you may have heard me talking about Aventura Clothing.  The makers of comfortable styles crafted from eco-friendly fabrics, Aventura has truly become one of my all time favorite womens brands. I love that their style is practical and earthy, and works so well for travel and everyday adventures.  Yet their clothing also has a stylish edge that I can wear and feel both age appropriate and foxy!  :) Here is a peek at some of my favorite pieces from this past year, after serving as an Aventura Ambassador through the Spring/Summer and then Fall/Winter season of 2014. As you can see, these styles are so versatile - I wear my Aventura when going to picnics, at my office for work, volunteering at my daughter's grade school, seeing the circus, DISNEYLAND (Woo Hoo!), and touring the local toffee shop then playing at the park with my preschool son on our wonderful Fridays off … [Read more...]

Comfortable and Classy, from Aventura’s Fall Collection

This Fall Aventura Clothing has a fantastic line-up including soft and stretchy corduroys, luscious infinity scarves, their signature unique henleys, and a great assortment of jackets and vests. My favorite colors from this collection center around blues and Aventura's "beaujolais", a rich rosy wine hue.  By adding just a few key pieces, you could mix and match with your existing clothing this winter and feel like you've got a whole new wardrobe! Check out this fantastic jacket, the Ciera Jacket.  As an Aventura Ambassador, I received one in "federal blue" to try.  And it's one of my absolute favorite things for Fall.  Extremely soft, yet has a tailored and classy look.   Wait, I wasn't ready.  (My 9 year old has been instructed to "just keep shooting...")  Here. Beautiful!   I adore the quilted pattern (which is repeated on the back), and the contrasting texture combination of modal sweater material for the sides and sleeves.  It has two well placed pockets, feels … [Read more...]
