As a Stonyfield YoGetter, I received a free clothing item from prAna and yogurt from Stonyfield to facilitate this post. All opinions are 100% my own. #JustBeYou
I wouldn’t consider myself particularly stylish, but I do like to look nice. It is one of the many ways I express my creativity. Even on the days when I’m home with Eve — i.e. pretty much every day — I like to put together an outfit that makes me feel confident and pretty. Since I spend the bulk of my day chasing after a toddler, it also has to be comfortable and practical.
In fall, my daily uniform consists mostly of leggings and skinny jeans with a tunic or long top with tall boots. Paired with my handmade teardrop earrings and heart charm bracelet, I feel like me and like I’m ready to conquer the world.
As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I’m committed to wearing clothes that are good for the environment and good for humanity. The bulk of my wardrobe is clothes I got used from clothing swaps or local consignment shops. When I find the right company, though, that meets my requirements, I’m happy to get something new. When I found out that I would have an opportunity to try get an article of clothing from prAna, I was super excited. They are committed to sustainability, through using sustainable materials such as organic cotton and wool and recycled polyester, by offering products that are Fair Trade Certified™, shipping their products in 100% recycled bags, and ensuring that their products meet environmental and safety standards.
Basically, it is everything I am looking for in a clothing company.
I decided to try out the Sondra Sweater in the color rhubarb. I wanted something that was comfortable and practical for everyday wear that went great with jeans, yet flattering and feminine. Since about 90% of my cold-weather clothing seems to fall in the black/gray/brown spectrum, I went with a lighter color. It’s funny, for someone who is generally happy and positive you’d think I own more clothes that match my personality!
I was drawn to the simple packaging and the lack of plastic in it. It drives me crazy how many companies waste so much plastic in their packaging. I immediately wanted to try it out, but I held off until I was able to get a photo of the shirt.
(Ok, I lied. I did immediately try it on, and then retied it so that I could take a photo of it!)
The shirt is super cozy and soft, and pairs perfectly with my new favorite black skinny jeans that I purchased at my favorite consignment store, 2nd Time Around, and the most amazing boots I purchased at another consignment shop.
(By the way, you may recognize this shirt from the photos I shared from my jewelry photoshoot on Friday!)
After a full morning with Eve, it’s time to get to work of a different kind. Before I get started, I like to take a few minutes to unwind. I like to sit down with Stonyfield Gingered Pear Oh My Yog! and read some blog posts for a few minutes before I start working. It feels like I’m having a decadent dessert when I’m getting all the goodness of organic yogurt.
