Fashion Focus: prAna Stylish and Sustainable Fashion #fallforprAna

Life is busy.

Fashion should be comfortable!

From running errands to a nice dinner out, I desire fashion that is versatile and ready for anything.

Discovering prAna clothing was a perfect fit.

prAna offers stylish and sustainable fashion that transcends the status quo.

prAna Stylish and Sustainable Fashion

Disclosure: This is a sponsored article between myself and prAna. Affiliate links are used in this article. I only feature brands I have personally tested and love.

Even when I am dressed comfortably I always want to have some flair.

Fashion should always be fun, never boring.

prAna nailed it with their Kara jeans and Daria Top!

Important: Keep reading for an exclusive discount! ( Hint: find it at the bottom of the post! )

prAna Kara Jeans

prAna Quality:

First I want to say that I was amazed by the quality of prAna clothing.

The fabrics are so soft and very well designed.

The jeans move with my body perfectly.

I could literally do stretches in them.

prAna fashion

Until recently I did not know much about prAna fashions.

I had seen other bloggers write about the brand but until I tried it for myself I had no clue!

prAna fashion

prAna Sustainability:

I am a big advocate of green living.

When I found out that many of prAna’s styles were sustainable I was very happy.

The Kara jeans are made of 75% organic cotton.

The Daria Sweater Hoodie is 55% organic cotton.

I spend a great deal of my spare time in nature and it’s something I aim to protect!

prAna fashion

prAna Versatility:

Not only does prAna pride itself on sustainable fashion but the clothing is versatile!

You can go straight from running the day’s errands to a hike in the country in these clothes!

I did!

The day these photos were taken, by my husband ( thank you sweetie ), we had just finished running our errands.

I was not even planning the photo shoot for this day.

I simply was giving the clothes their initial test run!

prAna fashion

It was when we decided to take this walk that I realized the prAna claim of being versatile was absolutely true!

Who knew one could dress so dang cute for hiking!?

prAna fashion

prAna Kara Jean:

So let’s talk about these jeans for a moment…

First off, I am so glad I went with the Rasin color!

Ladies these are sort of purple with a blue hue but sometimes, in some lighting, they have a maroon tone to them as well.

The color is so unique and so much fun!

prAna fashion

With Fall upon us, I was in need of a few more pair of jeans.

I just did not want another blue pair.

It was not easy selecting from eight gorgeous colors of Kara jeans but I am happy I went with rasin!

I am going to grab at least one, if not two more pairs!

prAna fashion

prAna Kara Jean Sizing:

So I am in between sizes.

I was a solid 10 but am moving down to an 8.

Since I knew I had to fit into them now for this article I went with a 10.

I could have sized down to an 8.

Now with that said, their sizing chart was spot on!

I just was not confident, but I should have been!

prAna fashion

Since these jeans have so much stretch to them that an 8 would have worked perfectly for me.

The 10 still works but I am not sure for how long.

My daughter is lurking patiently to receive them from me!

She adores them too!

prAna fashion

If I do continue to lose weight and need to buy the 8 I will be buying raisin again, I love this color so much!

Like I said, the sizing issue had nothing to do with prAna sizing chart so follow that, unlike me.

prAna Fashion

prAna Daria Sweater Hoodie:

Okay, it’s time to talk about this top.

So much fun, so much style, and flair!

I am forever saying I want clothing that is unique.

Daria delivers!

prAna Fashion

The Daria comes in four colors.

I opted for Muted Truffle.

I went with the color because like the design of this top, it is unique.

prAna Fashion

When shopping, I always consider what I already have in my closet.

I did not own any tops in a color close to this.

The knit is lightweight and perfect for the Summer to Fall transition.

prAna Fashion

Come winter I can simply wear a long sleeve blouse under it.

Since it is oversized layering will be easy.

Of course, the kangaroo pocket is useful and a place to keep hands warm.

prAna Fashion

The v-neck is cute with a nice border on the sides for some added styling.

I have to say this is the only top I have ever owned with cocoon sleeves.

prAna Fashion

I love them and think they are truly unique.

That is exactly what I shop for!

Different and unique!

prAna Fashion

Oh, and raise your hand if you have ever had a hoodie where the hood simply did not work right!

Either way too big and covered your eyes or too small and did not stay up.

You will not have either of these problems with the Daria!

prAna Fashion

prAna designs their fashions to be functional!

That includes knowing how to design a hoodie where the hood fits correctly!

Finally – someone got it right!

Thank you prAna!

prAna Fashion

I almost feel like a fairy tale character in this cute hoodie!

Being out in the country is my favorite place to be.

Enjoying the crisp air, the beautiful countryside, and in comfort to boot!

prAna Fashion

I am a prAna Fan!

I have my Kara jeans cuffed.

The Kara is made to be worn cuffed or long.

Depending on your height, of course, you may not be able to wear them long.

prAna Fashion

I am a super shortie at only five foot three inches tall.

The Kara is not available in different lengths.

Some of the prAna jeans are and I do plan to order other styles to try the short length out.

prAna Fashion

With that said, the Kara Jean is low rise with a narrow leg.

I like low rise because I do not have a very long body or true waist line.

I think low rise works well for those of us who have curvy or hour glass figures.

prAna Fashion

Look, I am not one of those women who will wear a spike heel.

Maybe in my 20’s but that has been decades ago.

I love fashion, but I require comfort!

prAna Fashion

I do not work in an office.

Most of my time is spent working from home, or out exploring.

I am an active mid-life woman.

prAna works for me.

prAna Fashion


prAna’s mission alone is something I align with:

When you reach into your closet, there should be something there that reflects who you are, how you feel, and what you value most. There should be something that you can put on in the morning and confidently wear all day long. Something you can throw in your bag and know will work for whatever your journey brings.


prAna Fashion

Yup, that is me 95% of the time.

Don’t get me wrong, I love to get dressed up and wear my wedges too!

Just not without good reason!

prAna Fashion

I have honestly tried to be that woman who works from home in a dress.

It makes no sense of my life style, can’t do it!

prAna Fashion

prAna is perfect for the woman who wants to look on trend but is on the go.

Perfect for the stay at home mom, anyone who works from home, or is into outdoor adventure.

prAna Fashion

prAna is sure you will love their clothing because they base their designs on their own experiences!

The creators of prAna are more than just designers.

They are yogis, climbers, and world travelers who know what comfortable fashion is.

prAna Fashion

They work to combine classic design elements with modern sustainable materials.

I also appreciate the attention to detail and that they are not afraid to try something out of the box.

They are a responsible brand as well when it comes to who is making their designs and how they are treated.

prAna Fashion

prAna Responsibility:

From partnering with Bluesign, to be sure they meet environmental and human safety standards …

to being a fair trade brand prAna cares.

prAna Fashion

They even put forests before fabrics!


In 2013 prAna partnered with Canopy, an environmental nonprofit to eliminate wood fibers from being endangered.


Those who know me know how important our woodlands are to me!

prAna Fashion

prAna Cares!

prAna does well in restraint from the use of poly bags as well.

79% of their products are shipped without the use of poly bags.

prAna Fashion

That isn’t even all prAna does for our environment and people!

You can check out more on their site but as a mid-life woman, these things matter to me!

prAna Fashion

I love getting older.

At 48 I am far more fun, far more funky and far more fashionable!

I am also far more aware of what I wear.

prAna Fashion


Brands that care matter to me. 

Fashion that does not sacrifice our beautiful earth is what I will personally invest my cash in. 


Versatile, Beautiful, Sustainable Fashion

prAna is all that and more.

      They are truly SUPER comfy! They have plenty of stretch too. If you order these I suggest you go with your lower size. That is always nice to do right!? Sorry they are out of your size now perhaps they will restock. I am sure all of prAna’s jeans are just as comfy though. I love their clothing.

  8. September 7, 2017 / 10:10 am

    I’m a jeans kind of gal for the fit is extremely important. I love the color of these. They look perfect with your yellow sneakers. Versatility is everything.

      Thank you so much Mimi! I simply love these jeans they are SUPER comfy! Tons of stretch too!

    • September 7, 2017 / 11:25 pm

      Thank you Diana. I am so happy to introduce you to prAna! They really do make the most comfortable fashion.
