When I think of clothing that is good for the environment it doesn’t always conjure stylish images in my head. But I think this kind of thinking needs to change. Why shouldn’t clothing that is good for the planet make you feel good while you wear it? And why shouldn’t all clothing be made this way? When I was contacted by Moms Meet to try PrAna sustainable clothing for review, I was excited to see what it is all about. I am always shopping for clothes and shoes, and I need to start making sure that the clothing I buy is also clothing that stands for something besides just fashion-it needs to help give back to our community, the earth and it needs to be made in a kind way.
I like the PrAna brand because it is stylish but also caring. They seem to take pride in where and how their clothing is made. PrAna is versatile because I can wear their things hiking or outdoors but also for traveling too. I notice this brand a lot when my husband takes me shopping at REI to look at bikes or camping stuff and I somehow slip away and find myself shopping for other things.
I picked the Liana Sweater to try. It has an asymmetrical hem and I loved the calm grey color it came in and it’s not itchy-it’s made with organic hemp and cotton and I love how soft and cuddly it felt even though it’s a light sweater.
I also tried the Kara Jeans. They are soft stretch and slim fit and I liked how they felt too. I have short legs so I can roll them or hem them but I really liked the indigo color they came in. (I just visited the Indigo exhibit at the Seattle Asian Art Museum so I think I’m more endeared to this color right now too!)
I wore my new clothes on a day we were hanging out in the cabin. We had such a mix of weather that day! A few minutes after we got back from a walk, the sky opened up and poured on us.
But I love hanging out with my family and I love getting outdoors. And I’m thankful that trying out these clothes helped me think about these moments a little more and helped me think of how thankful I was for the day.
I would love to share the love with at least one of you too! I have a 15% off coupon off PrAna clothing for my readers. Just use MMS16AECL for purchases made before May 30th 2016 on www.prAna.com and it’s a one time use coupon per person. (FYI-not good on gift certs, prior purchases, etc.)
And if one of you would like to be my twin, please comment below with something you’re thankful for this week. I’ll draw a name by noon on Tuesday May 3rd(I think you need to be based in the USA but I’ll check) and I’ve been told I can give one of you the same outfit I’m wearing. Best wishes!!!
