Fashionably Fair Trade with Prana

I like comfort. I mean, as soon as I get through my front door, I’m disrobing, and my children have fallen into that habit as well. Have you ever spent all day in clothes and just couldn’t wait to get home to remove them because they just didn’t make you comfortable? I know that I’m a special case, because I’d prefer to stay in knit all day, but I may have found a way to combat the GOTTA GET THESE CLOTHES OFF wiggles for at least an hour after I get home. It’s because of the clothing company prAna  – which has clothes for both men and women. Prana is a fair trade company, and I love it because I know that the people making my clothes are getting a fair wage for them – something that ANYONE who sews knows it’s hard to do. I actually have quite a few pieces of fair trade clothing from prAna, but today, I’m talking about these jeans and this sweater that I’m wearing.

First off, you can not go wrong with a dark blue jean. These have the perfect stretch, and they are so soft. I do recommend running them through your wash several times otherwise your undies might end up blue. Ask me how I know. However, the mobility that I had in these while bending down to pick up those leaves for this shot was pretty sweet. My dear sweet husband, Mr. Houseful even took a picture of me and my backside and there was no gap! HOORAY! And yes, I’m going to show you.

Given that today is Cyber Monday, it’s the PERFECT time for you to gift yourself, or your spouse, or your mom, or your dad, or your favorite person ever. Just do it. Because it feels good. Gifting is a great endorphin booster. I promise you. Although I’m not a doctor, so don’t take this as medical advice. I DO know that being able to frolic in the forest preserve while my husband took photos of me, in comfortable clothes, was nice. It was also a great day for it, as Chicago has been seeing close to 60 degrees lately. Yeah. That’s going to be AWESOME for my garden next year. /sarcasm. Anyway, you can use a special code for my readers only –  CMHN17 – to get 15% off your prAna gear. Or the prAna gear that you’re going to buy for yourself AND someone else. Remember, endorphin production is important people!

If you’re interested in exactly what items I’m wearing, they are *drumroll please* 

Kara Jean in Indigo and the Aya Sweater in Auburn.

I’m a size 10 in jeans and a large (thanks to the chesticles and broad shoulders) in their tops. I do find their sizing helper GREAT in these cases. It lets you know which size you should get in every item, because as we know, depending on the material or cut of something, a person’s size can change. 

One of the things that I love most about prAna is their commitment to giving back. Especially to those individuals who help produce the quality clothing that they sell. I’m all about giving back first in your neighborhood, and then to neighbors far and wide. You know that we have the community garden under We Sow, We Grow and we’re still moving forward with planting seeds and growing the community and the entire movement. We also still partner in little ways with Habitat for Humanity – although not nearly as much as we used to because life, and life. 

How do YOU give back? Let me know below, and know that with every purchase today, you’ll rest assured knowing that you’re giving to a GREAT company, and they are making sure that those dollars stretch.

    I’ve never worn PRana but it’s sounds amazing. The minute I get home the first thing I want off is my clothes.
