Prana Fall Style, a discount code & What I’ve been up to

I’ve been fortunate to participate in prAna‘s fall and spring style campaigns for the past few seasons and have reviewed several of their pieces.  This season I’m super excited because I’ve have the opportunity to try out some pieces that fit into my athleisure/athletic fashion style ;).  I was sent product to test out, but as always all thoughts and opinions are my own.

This season, I tested out the Roxanne Printed Legging in Indigo Garden, a pretty mix of blues, grey and purple.  I had a lot of tops that matched nicely in my wardrobe already so these colors were a perfect fit.

On top, I tried out the Sway Tank Top with a built in bra in Heather Grey.  Interestingly the bra matches another color of the Roxanne printed leggings.

This summer has been a bit of of struggle for me running (& blogging) wise, I’ve lacked motivation and continued to struggle with lingering pain in my hamstrings.  I have taken more time off running than I have in years but in the interim, I’ve incorporated more strength training, HIIT & yoga.

I’ll be honest, I am wearing the Roxanne leggings way more than the Sway Tank.  The leggings are so comfortable.  I’ve worn them for HIIT, yoga, hiking & even a short run (I don’t recommend them for running, but in a pinch they will work).

This year in Tahoe it was a little cooler than it has been in the past the first day, it even HAILED!  I wore the Roxanne leggings the whole first day, alone and then under my Lululemon camp pants when it got colder at night.

One of the things I love about prAna is how much they care about the environment and protecting it.  They use a lot of recycled materials for their products, the Roxanne leggings are no exception made from 87% recycled polyester and are bluesign certified.  I talked a bit about bluesign in a previous post, but it’s a way to create vibrant colors without polluting our oceans & rivers.

Now onto the Sway Tank.  I got a size small and it fit me perfectly in the bra, I found the back of the shirt to look a little off on me unless I really finagled with it.  I love that it too is made recycled polyester (88% for the shirt part/90% for the bra) but I wasn’t a huge fan of the feel of the shirt material.  It was a little rough & honestly I felt like it would show a lot of sweat.  I have been wearing it casually and it’s fine, but I don’t know if I would work out in it.

That being said, if I could separate the bra from the rest of the shirt, I would totally wear that all the time, it was so soft & comfortable.

#Spring4Prana: Spring 2017 Review & A Discount

I’ve been really fortunate to work with prAna and FitApproach for the last few spring & fall seasons to try out some of their new line and share with you some different looks from my normal running gear ;).

In the past I’ve reviewed the Meme Pant, the Prism Yoga pant and last fall the London Jean (which I wear all the time they are so comfortable) and the Devan Henley.

I was super excited to receive my new prAna gear last Monday, right before I was heading to Miami for work.  I choose to try the Mantra Pant & the Liana Sweater.  These pieces seemed the most me & were a few pieces that I fit my fitness aesthetic, especially the sweater.

I immediately had to try everything on, over the clothes I was wearing lol.  And it all fit perfectly. I got a size small in both pieces.

I really like the Mantra pant, it’s casual, but yet still nice enough I can wear them for work.  I wore them for a nice dinner and felt super comfortable.  I’ll definitely be adding them to my rotation for work trips.

The Mantra Pant comes in 5 colors, I picked Oatmeal and Smitha picked the Black Herringbone, which is also very nice and something you could wear in a biz casual environment as well.

From the prAna website the Mantra Pant is Soft hemp is blended with stretch fabric and trimmed with organic cotton, creating a naturally versatile pant. A relaxed fit, mid-rise, and straight leg are classically styled.

For the top, I chose the Liana sweater because it’s a nice, light weight knit top that I feel like I can wear over a yoga or run tank before or after a workout to kind of dress things up.

The Liana sweater comes in 3 colors, I picked Bora Bora because it was a nice springy color.

From the website, the Liana sweater is naturally beautiful. A wide neck, angled stripes, and asymmetrical hem create a casual feminine silhouette. A lightweight blend of soft hemp and organic cotton is conscious, comfortable, and moisture-wicking.

I do like this sweater and it looks cute on, but I do have to mention that I have already gotten a few pulls in the knit from my ring and there is no way I can wear this around the kitties or I’ll have so many pulls.  I think the asymmetrical hem is a little odd, but overall it’s cute.

Review: Prana London Jeans & Devan Henley

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 ;).

img_0241

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.
