Fall In Love With Prana

Fashion

I love fall and I am always awed by the richness of the changing colors. I also really enjoy the crisp morning of fall and the warm sunny afternoons. The fall season is the perfect weather for a light pair of pants that can transition easily from cool to balmy temperatures. Prana pants are the perfect bottoms for enjoying nature all day despite shifts in heat. My Prana joggers are breathable and easy to push up when the weather grows warmer; I also really love that the hue matches the beautiful pale leaves.

The best part you ask, Prana is committed to making clothing that has a more positive impact on lovely Mother Nature.  Prana has adopted sustainable initiatives such as avoiding toxic chemicals, using organic cotton, and creating new apparel out of recycled material. The brand also has a collection of men’s and women’s clothing that is fair trade certified. Prana is best known for their sportswear/outdoor wear but they have numerous items that could also be worn in a business casual setting.

My “kickin it joggers” are on sale through REI buy sadly my graphic tee showing my love of trees is now only available for men. However, I really love this tee and here is another great pair of fair trade certified joggers if you prefer a thicker material. Need something to keep you nice and toasty? Check out this cozy sweater!

Fun Fact: As a teenager, I would tell people the color of my hair was “autumn” because of the golden tones and the fact that it would appear darker as the days grew shorter. (Thankfully I didn’t shed my hair with the leaves.)

Threads For All Weather

Fashion

The fall weather can be unpredictable so it is a wardrobe necessity to have versatility. Luckily, Threads 4Thought has a variety of apparel to keep you stylish during fluctuating temperatures. They are an eco-friendly and sustainable clothing company for men and women (now kids too.) The company was founded in 2006 with the principle of making fashion that has a minimal environmental impact. I have supported this brand for years and can vouch for the durability of their apparel.

You can shop this brand online or through Nordstrom Rack. REI Outlet also has a selection of Threads 4 Thought apparel at a discounted rate. I love that Threads 4 Thought is now carrying Veja shoes as well.
