Style File /// Breathe Deeply with prAna AND A GIVEAWAY!

Friends! I’ve had the absolute best time working with prAna recently! Here’s the rundown of their awesomeness …

A few weeks ago I visited their store in Portland. It’s in the darling NW 23rd area called the Alphabet District and is full of quaint shops and delicious restaurants. We (my Mom, the littles and I) paid homage to Salt & Straw and then made our way to prAna to take a peek at the Fall collection.

This sounds like the perfect afternoon, right? Hangin’ with my ma, ice cream, shopping, showing off Portland to the kiddos. But no, I somehow timed all the fun of our day during nap time. Sooooo, emotion explosion time 2,000. 

Jem and Max combusted in all their glory while the sweet gal at prAna tried to cool their jets with some licorice. Amidst her snot and tears over my phone dying (read, my only hope at quiet in the dressing room) Jemma declared that “wickorish is weally, weally yummy”. Yes, my dear, it is. Just please don’t touch mama’s clothes.

While at prAna I fell in love with this and this

Okay, and this and this and ohmygoodness, this too.

But more than their clothing I love their heart. prAna is a company focused on sustainability, quality, and immeasurable ethics. They go above and beyond in all they do; in all they create. And have from the very beginning

prAna often says, “a brand should give much more than it takes from the world“. And they do! I experienced this first hand when their Portland employees reached out to cheer up my non-napping children. I saw this in their 100% recyclable shipping materials. I read about it in their commitment to sustainability and their forward thinking as they pioneered Fair Trade Certified apparel. Perhaps, most impressive, I’ve felt it in the quality of their products.

Here’s where things get exciting for you … this jacket, the Martina jacket, is the star of my Fall wardrobe. It’s classic, comfortable, and both water and wrinkle resistant. Plus, BEAUTIFUL!

Although I received complimentary pieces from prAna, they didn’t ask me to share about them. After one too many less than ethical correspondences with various other companies, I couldn’t help but shout prAna’s story from the roof tops. They are doing good, they are doing marvelous things. And all while producing beautiful, top quality apparel. Thank you prAna, I only hope that you inspire many more companies to follow in your footsteps.

    Love, love, love this jacket!! It's so perfect for a PNW fall:) My fave prAna items are their summer dresses – the Holly dress is super comfortable for hiking or for a date night!

      You know it, girl! You’ve totally inspired me to be more aware of my purchases! xoxo

      This last week I passed up the Old Navy clearance jewelry knowing that I’d rather invest in one, beautiful, honorable Noonday piece rather than collecting chintzy pieces!

        That makes my heart swell!! It is definitely an ongoing process. I still catch myself getting caught up in the consumerism cycle. Its SO HARD. But we’re only human and just do the best we can! <3

    Gosh, I could never pick just one favorite because I like so many pieces. So I am naming one piece that I would probably get the most wear out of which is the Zoe Henley Top. I love the sweaters and hoodies but I am so hot natured and Mississippi is rather mild, most of the time anyway that I couldn’t wear one of the sweaters unless it was literally freezing. Thanks so much for this opportunity.

    Tons of cute pieces! I have to admit, I would totally pair the julz hoodie or burnout wrap with the misty leggings and LIVE in them :)

    I do love the Milly jacket from Prana, especially with it’s feminine stitching in the back. However, I think my favorite item from Prana is the bright Lyra Jackets. The paprika color is gorgeous.
