I always stock the girls up on new leggings, a pair of fresh boots, and a new sweater for Fall. This year, Prana and Sweat Pink spoiled me with the same kind of gift. I am so excited to add both of these pieces to my wardrobe, and happy to share about them with you! If you are a fan use the code PFS16PHFT at checkout to receive an extra 15% off until October 31!
Prana clothes have long been on my list of favorites. I’ve always loved their organic cotton, and ethically made workout wear but didn’t know much about their casual, daytime clothes. But as my life goal is to basically always be in pants I could do yoga in, because . . . comfort; these fit the bill! I wear yoga pants or tights and dresses about 90% of the time, jeans are not typically my first choice.
But I chose the Kara jeans because they have a lot of stretch, and are versatile (can be rolled up, or are perfect for tucking into boots). They are a medium rise but have a thick waist band so they don’t feel low or like I can’t squat/run/bend/chase kiddos comfortably. They come in a ton of colors and now I’m wanting to buy some of the bright red ones! This hunter green was my selection because I’m a big fan of chambray tops and often struggle with what to pair them with, because a Texas Tuxedo isn’t quite my jam. These worked perfectly.
I sized up after reading their size chart but could have easily grabbed my typical size and felt great in them (these ones have quite a bit of room in them), they have a lot of stretch and are super long (made to roll) so if you are long legged they would work well for you too. I’ve been pretty blown away looking through the #PrAnaFallStyle hashtag on IG and seeing how well these jeans work on a large range of body types. I often struggle with jeans because my waist is a couple sizes smaller than my thighs, but these were an easy fit and a true to size fit (but I did feel that their size chart was a little off, likely because these have quite a lot of stretch, so I want them to fit more snug).
Prana, and Sweat Pink were also kind enough to send over a sweater. This was, obviously, right up my alley and easy for me to adopt into my wardrobe and NEVER WANT TO TAKE OFF!
The cut, the seams, and the color… YES. This is the Mattea Sweater and is made of recycled wool, and is such a perfect weight. I worried it might be too thick, but it’s not at all. It’s soft, not stiff, fully lined so not itchy at all, and so cozy. I’m wearing a medium here and other than the sleeves being a bit long, it’s a great fit all the way through and I love where it hits on my hips.
And, obviously, I put the jeans to the test.
They passed with flying colors. Thanks again to Prana and Sweat Pink for these awesome pieces to add to my wardrobe, they will be in the rotation for years to come.
