I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com), May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.
It is amazing to me how things have changed in the way I think and choices I make since my son has blessed my life. I have a strong desire to make this world a little better for my son in whatever small way I can. I hope to teach him how to make choices to take care of our earth and others as well. Choices such as where I spend our money and who we support is more important than ever! Sponsorship and Fair Trade are important to me and I want to instill these beliefs to my son. Now, with that being said – don’t get me wrong. I’m still a mom looking for comfort and style (mostly comfort)! I love the Fair Trade beaded bracelets and necklaces that I have and I feel great wearing them because those purchases are towards a great cause! It’s my little way of helping! Thankfully, we have prAna, a company that provides clothing and accessories that feel great, look good, and support positive choices, Fair Trade, and Renewable Energy Initiatives!
I was blessed that #MomsMeet provided me the opportunity to try a couple of pieces from prAna because I instantly fell in love. As a mom on the go, I yearn for comfortable clothes that can take me from a lunch date to a game at the ball field without feeling like I need an outfit change. (Unless my youngest creates a situation requiring me to do so!) I was able to ‘test drive’ a couple separates, and I was extremely pleased with how easily they were to incorporate and elevate my current wardrobe!
My first piece was the Cleo Tee in Mood Indigo. It’s a cute T-shirt perfect for the ball field, but still cute enough to pair with jeans for seeing a movie and playing outside with my little guy! This shirt is COMFORTABLE! It feels so good on – it’s lightweight and I love it’s cut. As opposed to a straight cut across the bottom; this T-shirt boasts a more feminine cut with a little extra fabric on the backside for additional coverage. This T-shirt could be worn with anything! It’s easy to keep it casual with shorts or jeans, or dress it up a notch with a cute skirt, khakis and a blazer, or paired with a longer coverage sweater like I did when the temperature dipped! There’s so many options and I want this shirt in every color!
My second piece was the Tess Shorts a try in Koi color. These shorts are made of 97% organic cotton and they are super comfortable as well. I love the inseam length of around 5 inches. For me the length was great; not too long and not too short for this mom! These shorts are lightweight and again, so versatile! They are easily dressed up and classy or easily paired with a tank or tee for a casual outfit to run around with the kids at the park! I used the sizing guide and ordered accordingly for both the shorts and the T-shirt. I believe their sizing is accurate, and very similar to the sizing of other pieces of clothing I own. The aren’t too tight and have enough stretch and comfort to make them comfortable for all day adventures!
How did prAna come about to provide such comfortable and eco-friendly options? When founders Beaver and Pam Theodosakis couldn’t find the quality and effectiveness they desired in their climbing and yoga gear, they simply began to make their own as they saw fit! The result is a company providing exceptional quality textiles made from organic cottons, recycled wool, hemp, recycled polyester and responsible down. Fair Trade Certified items, climbing gear, hats, scarves, bags, swim wear, outerwear, active wear, and yoga attire and equipment are among the many options prAna has to offer. You can browse their website and create your extensive wish list, or you can find a retailer near you by using prAna’s locator option. See something or many things you just have to have?? (It’s impossible not to!) Don’t feel guilty about adding another color of those Tess shorts to your cart! Use discount code MOMSKAC at checkout and save 15% off of your entire order!! (sale items excluded)
The blessing of providing durable and sustainable clothing also pays it forward to those in need. prAna works in partnerships with many local and international charities. During the holiday season, portions of proceeds are donated to connecting youth with the outdoors through Outdoor Outreach. Not only will your purchase provide you with long lasting, exceptional quality items; you’ll be contributing to blessing others through charity, Fair Trade, & responsible fabric choices. These are decisions that I can feel confident in and proudly share with others! Small choices can result in big changes and that’s my hope for me and my family! Now this #prAnaMama is hoping for prAna kids options! Hint Hint…..
