Note: This is a sponsored post on behalf of prAna. I was given the fabulous outfit you see me wearing in exchange for my honest opinion and review.
I’m no fashion hound, but I do love to dress up when the opportunity presents itself. Whether it’s a night out on the town, hanging out with my girlfriends or attending a work function, nothing makes me feel better than looking sharp and pulled together. Now…. that being said… if you were to drop in on me during a normal day, you’re going to find me dressed for comfort – especially considering that I work on a computer all day. If you want to restrict the flow of creativity, wear a fitted skirt and 4″ heels. Works like a charm.
I’m a pretty active person and seemingly on the go all the time so my everyday wear has to be comfortable and not fussy (read: no ironing, please). And since I never know if I’m going to jump on camera and shoot a video, it still has to look decent – no sweats and t-shirt for this girl unless it’s 9 pm and with a glass of wine.
When I was offered the opportunity to check out the line of sustainable clothing from prAna, I headed to their site to see what their line of clothing was like and what made them unique.
prAna is committed to creating versatile, stylish, and sustainable clothing and accessories that their customers can wear during every activity, every adventure, every day. What originally began as a line of clothing for yoga and climbing has become clothing that is perfect for everyday wear as well as active wear. Better yet – you can wear the prAna styles at work or for errands and then go straight to a hike in the woods or mountains or a walk with your girlfriends to end the day!
And while prAna clothing is made to accommodate any adventure, the items are first and foremost mindfully made in order to support fair trade and sustainable practices. prAna actually has only one core belief, and that is to give back more than they take from the world. Read more about that initiative here.
Trendy, Comfortable Styles
Sometimes stylish ≠ comfort but that’s not the case with the clothing line from prAna. I was given a selection of items to choose and while it was really, REALLY hard to narrow it down, I opted for this top and pair of shorts. The shorts because I needed a pair of white shorts and the top because it just looked like me and something that I would get a lot of wear from.
The Petra Top – The Petra top blends organic cotton and recycled poly to create a comfy jersey fabric with lace insets in a tank silhouette with shirttail hem.
I love, love, love this top and it’s sooooo soft. I’ve already worn it a couple of times and the camo green is one of my favorite colors in my wardrobe.
The Tess Short – The stretch canvas of the prAna Tess Short is made of 97% organic cotton, with just the right amount of stretch. Wear it with the hem rolled up or down, whatever the moment and your outfit call for.
Quite possibly the most comfortable pair of shorts that I now own. What I love about them is that I’ve worn them casually and I’ve worn them out to dinner with a cute pair of sandals. The style of the Tess went right along with the flow!!
I’m not an Instagram model, but could you think of an outfit that better suited my laid back, easy going style? I surely can’t!!
I love working with companies that make quality products that are also good for Mother Earth. If you’re into clothing that’s beautiful and functional and made with consciousness, prAna is the company for you. Can’t wait to try a few more things from them!!
