I received two pieces of clothing from prAna for this review. All opinions are my own (although my cat pitched in her thoughts too!).
Two months out from the end of our time being caregivers, and I am slowly remembering how to savor the sheer freedom to come and go as I please, and to do a few more things that matter to me.
I enjoyed wearing my two new pieces of prAna clothing recently as I went on a small adventure (and also when I checked out a new location for a favorite food cooperative here in town).
Rocking My Message
Recently, I went to see 9 to 5 the Musical at Theatre Tallahassee, after which I had a mission. I had a very special rock to hide! (If you’re unfamiliar with the rock hiding craze, here’s more info.) I needed something pretty enough to fit in at the theatre and comfy enough to stand up to my rock-hiding expedition.
This particular rock was in honor of the You Matter Marathon (read more about it here). As you can tell, I was holding it upside down in one of the pictures — but I kind of like the reminder that things sometimes just get turned around but the message is still a worthy one. And I doubt the ducks will find the rock BUT maybe they’ll bear witness to the recipient’s joy when they find it!
And About the Cat
New businesses are popping up all over Tallahassee, and I was excited to see that a fave food co-op, New Leaf Market, had opened a new location on our north side. After happy hour with my girlfriends recently, I popped in to check it out! Among all of their natural, organic options, I was impressed by their pet supplies. Bella would be too (she’s in charge, after all!). Don’t you agree I deserve to sit back with a bit of our local (also awesome!) Lucky Goat coffee after she gets into the catnip? This prAna top is perfect for exploring a food co-op then relaxing with some delicious coffee.
More about prAna
I have let my clothing game, which was pretty anemic anyway, slide over the past three years when I have been working from home and caregiving. I enjoyed these awesome pieces prAna sent me — they were a perfect blend of fashionable and functional.
prAna focuses on creating sustainable clothing, and says their goal is to create apparel that will get you through your whole day, no matter what that brings. The lavender piece I wore to the theatre and park is the Tilly Top, which is made from organic cotton and recycled polyester blend burnout lightweight jersey knit. I loved the lace insets.
The rose top I wore to New Leaf is the Penelope Pullover, which is made from organic cotton and a polyester blend lightweight jersey knit. I love the fact that it is Fair Trade Certified™, meaning that the factory where it was made meets criteria regarding safe working conditions, equal treatment for women, and more.
