Step Up Your Fall Fashion with prAna #FairTrade #Yoga #fallforprAna

     With summer coming to an end, it's time to break out the Fall fashion! Sweaters, pants, boots, scarves...I love them all. Those of you who follow us often know that I'm a huge online shopper and I love to find new sites to purchase unique clothing pieces. My latest online discovery is a store called prAna. If you haven't perused their site yet, grab a cup of tea and settle in, because you're going to fill up your cart pretty quickly. (As an added bonus, you get 10% off your first order when you sign up for their email list!)

     Since this is the first time I've tried their site, the good people of prAna offered to send me a couple of items to review, so that I can share my thoughts on the product quality with our readers. I chose to give the Daria Sweater Hoodie and the Juniper Pants a try. If you're into stylish comfort, read on...

Daria Sweater Hoodie
     I absolutely LOVE this hoodie! I may need one in each color. prAna has managed to design a sweater that feels comfortable and effortlessly easy, but allows you to look stylish when you step out the door. Wear it on its own or on top of a long sleeve shirt to expand your look. I chose the muted truffle color, which looks more of a gray in person, so it goes with just about everything. The cargo green would be perfect for the fall season, too. 

The Details
     This fine gauge sweater knit hoodie is made of a lightweight organic cotton blend, merino wool and nylon. The cocoon sleeves, kangaroo pocket and wide, relaxed fit hood have a bit of a soho chic style--urban and elegant with an edgy flair. The back of the sweater has a rib panel at the center back. 

     To give you a size comparison, I'm 5' 10" and typically wear an extra small or a small. I went with the small size to be sure it hung enough on me and I'm glad I did. prAna offers a sizing guide that I found really helpful. Fabric: 55% Organic Cotton / 35% Merino Wool / 10% Nylon
     I'm a yoga newbie, so I really wanted to try prAna's sustainably source Juniper Pant. The pattern is funky and fun, which is perfect for yoga class. This pattern is a great way to show a little personal expression, too. I was a little nervous that these pants would be too short for me since they don't offer a 'long' size and I typically need a 34 inch inseam. As it turns out, the stretch of the material allows these pants to fit me like a glove! Speaking of the material, I was pleasantly surprise to find that these pants are thicker than a lot of the yoga pants you find in the store. They're extra comfortable and I love the flair leg (which stays put during yoga, btw). Use their sizing guide to figure out which size it best for you.

The Details
     These flair leg yoga pants are sustainably sourced, made from a blend of soft hemp, organic cotton and stretch material for extra mobility. The thick, low rise waistband is made with elastic inside for stretch and comfort. I love how fitted they are to my body and the flat lock seaming allows me to move into any pose comfortably. Fabric: 53% Hemp / 42% Organic Cotton / 5% Spandex
