prAna Fall Style | Sweater WeatherSeptember 10, 2016
Thanks to prAna for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions expressed here are unbiased and my own.
As I mentioned in my previous post, ‘Let’s get our weird workout on’, I have partnered with prAna to showcase some of their Fall Collection on my blog (thank you FitApproach campaign). And no matter what the internet guys tell you (that Sept 22nd is the first day of Fall) Fall is already in the air and we did get a taste of it here in Seattle this week. No complaints though, it at least gave me a good opportunity to bust into my new favorite pants and sweater from prAna.
To be honest, I always pictured prAna as a brand that made yoga pants and other workout gear. Never really imagined them to make such comfortable, casual and yet stylish everyday clothes that are also perfect for any outdoorsy activities. Well, I am both pleasantly surprised and glad that prAna remains true to what they claim…
‘OUR MISSION IS TO INSPIRE HEALTHY, ACTIVE, AND FREE-SPIRITED LIVING.
When you reach into your closet, there should be something there that reflects who you are, how you feel, and what you value most. There should be something that you can put on in the morning and confidently wear all day long. Something you can throw in your bag and know will work for whatever your journey brings.
prAna is that something
We create versatile, stylish, and sustainable clothing and accessories that you can wear during every activity, every adventure, every day.’
This symbol signifies clothing made with sustainable materials.
And talking about my two favorite picks from prAna’s Fall Collection, I chose their…
Lucia Sweater in Natural (though I am pretty sure I ordered it in Light Mauve) - It is a cozy, soft and stylish pullover. I especially love the herringbone pattern at the sleeve cuffs, collar and the back, and give me anything with a drawcord (so edgy) and I am sold! The sleeves and collar has this soft lining that I really like. All in all, this sweater is great for layering when it’s cold outside or can be worn alone with jeans or skirt and boots (plenty of options really). And I have to say, ‘Natural’ color is probably better as it makes it easier to pair. No wonder the Lucia Sweater is one of prAna’s classic sweaters.
Kara Jean in Cargo Green (it totally screams Fall) - First off, it’s one of the most comfortable and the best pair of jeans I have ever owned (and no, I am not exaggerating!). It is amazingly lightweight, soft and stretchy. You can totally dress it up (as I did with pops of color for example) or dress it down (well hello, cuffed look), tuck it into boots, wear it with heels or even sneakers - so versatile for every occasion, right? And most importantly it’s stylish as-is (when your hubby is jealous of your new pants then it says a lot don’t ya think ;)). Very flattering pair of pants to say the least, oh it also comes in other vivid colors and patterns. No wonder the Kara Jean is prAna’s best-selling fitted jeans!!!
The Kara Jean and the Lucia Sweater are both perfect finds for my upcoming travels too and I am pretty sure that they are going to be on repeat for a really long time ;) And for you wonderful readers of this blog, prAna is offering 15% OFF their brand new Fall collection, use discount code PFS16SVEE at checkout (valid until 10/31/2016).
