Wow, it has been an absolute wild weather ride for Texas and Florida the last couple of weeks. Even if you don’t live there, chances are you have family members and friends who do. Add to that, the fires in Washington and California, the severe drought in Montana, and you may be like me, very worried about our world and its residents.
I think in these times people are looking to spread positivity, if there is anything good to come out of these catastrophic weather events, it is the way people have pulled together to help. I mean even in New York where I live, they are having clothing drives for the displaced Texans who lost everything in Hurricane Harvey. Now, I am sure, more people will band together to help Floridians get back on their feet.
One way to help our planet every day is to make sure everything you purchase for yourself or as a gift makes a positive impact. Clothing is something we all buy and yet, some manufacturers are not doing the right things. Recently, I ordered some items from prAna, they offer organic, hemp, sustainable and fair trade items that you feel great about wearing and giving for gifts.
The company’s mission is to give people the option of reaching into their closet and dressing in items that reflect who they are. I was pleased to browse their site, and see clothing that I could dress up or down. Pieces that had the versatility to go from hanging out on the weekend to a night on the town easily.
With the weather changing so quickly here in the northeast, it seems we embarked on fall well before we were ready to say goodbye to summer. Little did I realize, I would be embracing my new Daria Sweater Hoodie as soon as I did. It is so soft and comfortable. The sweater is woven from a lightweight organic cotton in a fine gauge knit. It is oversized which makes it great for layering. The perfect sweater to cheer my little ones on from the sidelines of the soccer game. I can wear a turtleneck underneath or wear it alone to change-up the look or for added warmth. Adding accessories can customize the look for wherever I am going. I love the big front pocket to keep my hands warm and the hood adds some fun flair.
The Manta Pants I ordered are my new favorite pants. They are made of a hemp and recycled poly blend woven with 3% spandex for extra mobility. The waistband is constructed from an organic cotton and hemp blend knit and features an adjustable internal drawcord to give me a secure fit. They are cut with a mid-rise and straight leg that give me that relaxed fit I love. They are so comfortable and the black herringbone color I chose dresses them up without compromising comfort. I can easily wear them out to run errands, attend meetings at the school, or to coffee with a friend, and they are my first choice to wear when spending a lazy day at home.
I think the versatility of prAna’s clothing is what appeals to me most. It really fits my lifestyle since I work from home and am a wife and mother of 5. Being able to change the look of an outfit quickly with a few accessories, is something that I need to be able to do, and prAna gives me the pieces I need to do that.
Whether my day’s adventures lead me on a hike in the mountains with my family, scouring our local farmer’s market for the best produce or meeting with the marketing agent of a company I am working with, my prAna clothing fits me and whatever I am doing perfectly. I think it works so well because all the designers create and test all of prAna’s clothing based on their own love for outdoor activities.
