I don’t know about you, but I have a pretty hectic schedule. Like everyone else, there are times I drop the ball, but most of the time, I manage it well and on those days and weeks, it means a celebration is in order.
Sometimes I celebrate by going out with the girls on a Saturday night, sometimes it’s staying in for facials with my siblings, and sometimes that means wrapping up in a comforter on the couch to watch reruns of the Gilmore Girls with my rather large puppy, Nala.
I would say these examples would be equally considered “treating yourself.” But, my favorite way to treat myself after a stressful week of work/life is staying inside where I don’t have to communicate with anyone and buying clothes that I’ll probably regret later because they fit me like a sack of potatoes.
You know what doesn’t fit me like a sack of potatoes? prAna.
I was recently given the opportunity to try out a couple clothing items from prAna and instantly fell in love! They have exactly the style that I love and I can’t wait to share them with you and offer you a prAna coupon code to save you 15% off your purchase.
Check out my selection:
The Deedra Sweater Tunic in coal is made from an organic cotton blend and is so soft and comfortable. I can pair it with a pair of leggings or my jeans and ankle boots. The V-neck is super flattering and I love the dropped hem with side vents. I can easily dress it up or down with some great jewelry or a scarf. I have a feeling this is going to be a staple in my closet this winter.
I also selected the Rockaway Jacket in gravel. The jacket is fitted with a zip-front and hoodie. It’s very comfortable and I got compliments on it the first day I wore it.
While I wouldn’t say my style is “lazy”, it’s definitely “athleisure” because when I’m not working, cuddling with my puppy, hiking, hanging out in my hammock (literally) or shopping online, you’ll find me spending hours at the gym.
I need clothes that offer plenty of maneuverability and comfort that are also cute. Because guess what, as a Traveling Prater, I’m always down for adventure and I don’t want my clothing choices that day to hinder me from an amazing opportunity.
For example, I once wore a dress (a super cute dress) to my brother’s family day on his military base. Honestly, I was only expecting food trucks and face painting, but guys, I was surprised to see those Zorb ball things! You know, those clear balls that you climb inside and then run around and bump into each other! I was NOT about to miss out on that opportunity, so obviously I made my brother and my brother’s girlfriend jump in and play. I mistakenly thought the dress wouldn’t hinder me too much because I would make sure I didn’t get knocked over. Well, my brother is easily 6’5 and twice my weight, so when he runs at you in a Zorb it definitely isn’t a light tap. Let’s just say I’m glad I wore pretty underwear that day because everyone definitely saw them. That would not have happened if I were dressed for the adventure and wearing prAna, or maybe, if my brother wasn’t so competitive.
prAna offers many clothing choices for those who share my “athleisure” style and their clothes are super cute! They fit me spot on. I normally wear a medium in tops and sweaters, but I opted to get a large in both items I ordered. I wanted them to be a bit baggy – typically with jackets I do need a size large because of how long my arms are (my 5’10” frame is hard to buy for, y’all).
I will visit the prana website again during one of my “treat yourself” nights, because I know what I order will be quality and the fit will be flattering. Plus, prAna prides themselves on providing clothing that are stylish and sustainable, and they believe in giving back to the community. prAna has aided disaster victims, internationally and over the holidays give back through Outdoor Outreach, a unique, not-for-profit organization that gets underserved youth outdoors.
