I am on a roll this week and am knocking out blog posts left & right, LOL. I’m back with another review, this time I partnered with my friends at prAna and FitApproach to review an outfit from prAna’s fall line.
It was a 103 here in San Diego on Monday and we’ve had temps in the 90s ever since fall officially began but it’s much cooler in other parts of the country.
While we don’t have the fall temps here, there were fall temps when we were in Tahoe for Tahoe 200 earlier this month and I got a lot of use out of both of my new pieces from prAna.
prAna has 5 different styles of jeans for women. The London, which I picked, are prAna’s most fitted jean. They are a mid-rise, with traditional 4 pocket styling and come in different inseam lengths. Ignore Mr. Purrums head-butting me ;).
The London jean is made out of organic cotton, with Sorona® polyester which adds natural stretch, durability, and allows the jeans to retain shape.
I reviewed the Meme Pant last fall and I got a size 6 which is my normal size, but they were a bit big in the waist so I decided to go with a size 4 with the London Jean so they weren’t too big.
The verdict? I think they fit like a glove, but the waist is a bit tight when I sit down sometimes, haha. But other than that, they fit just like a pair of yoga pants, they are sooo comfortable.
I rarely wear jeans, I spend the majority of my time, in running or yoga clothes, but I was really impressed with fit and comfort level of these.
I picked the dark indigo color, and the London Jean also comes in Antique Blue (a lighter blue color). When I got the jeans it came with a notice that I should wash the jeans alone a few times to avoid color transfer, which I did.
The London Jean comes in 3 different inseam lengths, short is 29in, regular 31in and tall 33in. I’m 5’8″ and wouldn’t call myself short, but for some reason prAna sent me the short length. I was expecting to have to send them back to get the regular length, but surprisingly they fit well. I took a few photos and asked Smitha @runningwithsd what she thought and we were in agreement that they fit fine.
Now for the top, I originally wanted to try the Yarrah dress because it looked like it would be perfect for work. As we’ve established, it doesn’t get very cold here in SD so I didn’t know which of the fall sweaters I would even be able to use. I finally decided that the Devan Henley would be a good option. It’s a cute hoodie and seemed a bit lighter weight then some of the other sweaters.
Made of a mix of organic cotton and polyester, the Devan Henley is made to be layered. It comes in 4 different colors, mineral green, vintage cobalt, winter & black and sizes XS to XL.
I got the mineral green color in a size small. I’m not of huge fan of green, but it looked really nice on, if I had it to do over again, I would choose the vintage cobalt since I’m more of a blue girl ;).
The Devan Henley fit pretty well, it was roomy and allowed me to wear a long sleeve jacket and a short sleeve shirt under it. I probably would have gone with an XS if I wanted it to be more fitted. It’s supposed to be a relaxed fit so I’m ok with a little looser fit.
