If I'm not in running clothes, you can usually find me lounging around in yoga wear as I'll soon be adding "yoga instructor" to my long list of titles. As I make small changes in my lifestyle, little by little, I try my hardest to purchase products and brands that are environmentally sustainable to minimize my ecological footprint. Not only that, I've made it a priority for our family to become "minimalist," and I've managed to pare down my wardrobe quite a bit.
While I still love clothes (and buying them), now I look for pieces that can play double duty purchasing brands that use organic materials and items that go from play to work.
prAna designs clothes that look good (obvi), but are versatile enough for any lifestyle and any adventure. There's no need to worry about packing an extra set of clothing for yoga if I need to head to a meeting or go grocery shopping afterwards. All of its designers create and test all of prAna's clothing based on their own love for outdoor activities.
I love, love, love the Liana sweater and Annexi pant. Both are great for days I want to be a little more "put together," but still comfortable. The sweater will be in heavy rotation as a post yoga coverup! And I'm planning to wear the pants a little bit more dressed up with pumps and an off-the-shoulder top for evenings frolicking around D.C.
But maybe even more importantly, while prAna makes clothes 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.
More than ever, we need to continue to find ways to spread positivity in our country. One way to do that is to make sure every purchase you make and every gift you give has a positive impact on our planet.
I'm a sponsored prAna Influencer, but all opinions are my own. prAna partnered with bloggers, such as me, to get the word out about its great products. As part of this program, I received apparel featured to review. prAna's policies align with Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines and social media engagement recommendations.
