Thank you prAna for sponsoring this post.
My life has changed dramatically from before I had kids to now that I have my hands full with 2 little ones. But, one thing has always stayed the same: Saturday and Sunday morning yoga practice. There’s something so awakening to wake up first thing in the morning and check in with myself on my mat. To have a moment of connectedness to my body, to feel and flow with the music and my breath, and of course, break a good sweat! I’ve since added in my weight training and cardio programs into my fitness regimen but I love always being able to come back to my yoga practice. I’ll be the first to admit that life can be crazy hectic (work, family, blog, fitness — are there ever enough hours?) but having a workout program that I love has been key for helping me manage my stress and save my sanity!
Athleisure: More Than A Trend
Athleisure wear is a huge trend right now, but in all honesty I feel like I’ve been rocking the trend before it was even a trend, lol! I first started noticing cute workout clothes maybe 8ish years ago and I actually remember Adrian asking me if my yoga outfit was for exercise or going out! But seriously, workout clothes are so stylish these days and you can’t beat the comfort of a pair of stretchy leggings. I love that brands are designing pieces now that perform in the gym and make a style statement on the street. Even if I may not have plans to hit the gym, I love sporting workout clothes as it’s become my new definition of casual wear!
prAna: Style Meets Function With A Conscience
prAna is a brand that I’ve worn for years and one of my favorites from the beginning. I first noticed them for their super cute tops and the Filament Tank that I’m wearing is a testament to just that! The halter style is super flattering for showing off the shoulders and you can’t miss the strappy details in the back! The ruched bust is surprisingly supportive and the fabric is snug without being too clingy.
For transitioning the look outside the gym, I’ve been loving this Loveland Wrap! The organic cotton is super soft and the cascading front waterfall drape gives it a dressed up feel that’s effortlessly chic. The fabric has a subtle two-tone coloring that adds dimension and is so pretty. The wrap comes in 3 colors and is perfect for layering — I’ve been wearing the blush pink shade with literally everything and am debating getting the coal color too (save 15% with code F17CGKV)!
prAna: From Fruit Boxes In A Garage
It wasn’t until recent that I learned the story behind prAna and it’s certainly an inspiring one. The company started in a garage in Carlsbad, California back in 1992 and it was founded in the belief that clothes could be both stylish and sustainable. The first pieces were sewn by the founders themselves, labeled with tags made from homemade recycled paper, and shipped their orders in fruit boxes from local grocery stores! Even as the company has grown, they have still adhered to their principles of seeking out materials made from sustainable resources, partnering with companies and factories that follow Fair Trade and and Fair Labor, and use processes the ultimately improve the industry.
prAna has been a leader in athleisure wear as they went about designing clothes for every activity right from the beginning. Their pieces are a mix of classic style with options for vibrant colors and whimsical patterns that never fail to get compliments! While I love prAna clothing not just for how well it fits into my life when I’m looking for stylish, functional clothes to take me from the gym to brunch to errands, but I also love it even more as I’m able to support a company that truly inspires with its commitment to sustainability, community, and doing right.
