Thank you prAna for sponsoring this post.
Since moving to the city, and making the friends that I did I’ve had to adapt my wardrobe to be a little more…uh, what’s the right way to say this? flexible? real life-able? Does that make sense? I guess what I’m saying is as much as I love photos of fashion bloggers in pretty dresses, and heels with their bikes that just doesn’t suit the way I ride. Every piece of clothing that comes into my wardrobe has to be useful. I like to wear things that look nice, but that I can still stretch and move in. I always mean to share more photos of me on my bike and what real bike style looks like in my world but the truth is it isn’t all that cute most of the time.
I’ve had to be very selective about what I wear on my bike. I ride hard. I ride fast. So my clothing has to be comfortable, breathable, and definitely not have a massive seam down the center. *ahem* If I’m not asking too much, I’d still like to look cute. Enter prAna! When the opportunity to work together presented itself, I jumped at the chance. Their clothes are cute, versatile, and probably best of all, mindfully made in order to support fair trade and sustainable practices. prAna’s one core believe is to give back more than they take from the world. Check out this video they made about sustainabiliy and being a conscious consumer! It’s awesome to find companies that care!
I chose the Kara jeans specifically because they were made from organic cotton that allows for breathability and movement. Y’all they feel like biking in pajama pants, and I could not be happier! Most importantly, the seam is comfortable to sit on for long periods of time. Wahooo! A nice bonus -they come in eight different colors! That means if you’re on of those folks who likes to stock up on your favorite clothing finds, you can stock up without looking like you only wear one pair of jeans. I wouldn’t know anything about that though…
I’m so happy to have found prAna and this clothing that looks great but is still able to handle all the ways my body moves. I love that I can hop off my bike, walk into a restaurant and not look like I just hopped off my bike based on my outfit choice.
