Even though it’s been rather cold & dreary in New England lately, I’m feeling all things spring. Every year, around this time I tend to go through a major reflection period. I find myself asking more questions, checking in with how I want to FEEL & spending more time with myself. I take a good, hard look at all aspects of my life — from career to finances to home environment — and dig a little deeper.
Are you feeling that energy too?
prAna Love: Sustainable Wear for Free Spirits
With that being said, springtime is also the perfect time to refresh your wardrobe! Seeing as though my dresser consists of 90% “athleisure” wear, I was psyched to check out prAna’s new spring collection.
For those of you who haven’t shopped with prAna before, their clothing is absolutely dreamy and I know you’ll fall in love. Whether your thing is yoga or hiking, they’re all about designing clothing for people who “live life fully, play long, and travel well.” Um, hello that’s me!
While the free spirit in me totally digs their mission, what I appreciate most is prAna’s dedication to sustainability — and I don’t just mean their clothing! They go through great lengths to ensure everything they do is done with sustainability in mind — from the materials used to the people.
First & foremost, their materials are top-notch, using fabrics like organic cotton, recycled wool, and even hemp. No wonder their clothing just feels so good. Seriously, you never want to take it off!
Just as impressive is their respect for their people and partnerships. The folks on their team are treated fairly, ensuring they have safe working conditions, a voice in the workplace, higher earnings and equal opportunities for women. prAna’s dedication to sustainability even trickles all the way down to their packaging! For example, 79% of their products ship without the use of polybags and the fabrics used to create your clothing are tracable to the exact farm the cotton was grown. How cool is that?
New Season, New Wardrobe
To jazz up my spring style, I opted for the Cleo T-shirt in Mood Indigo & the Annexi Pant in Black Herringbone. I have already worn my tee multiple times because it’s just oh so comfy & versatile. I’m also obsessed with the color, as I don’t really own anything in that particular shade.
As for the pants, I’ve been itching for a pair of jogger-like pants for a while now, and these provide just the right amount of comfort & style and they’re made with HEMP.
The best part? prAna’s clothing is so versatile! It can be worn from the grocery store to yoga to lounging around the house. In fact, today alone I rocked my tee from morning meetings to Trader Joe’s to lounging with my hubby, and was comfy yet “put together” throughout the day.
That’s a win for me.
I’m thrilled to spring forward into the new season with a fresh perspective & some new clothes to boot!
