*This post is in partnership with prAna.
In just a few days my family and I will begin our year of living on the road and traveling the U.S. and Canada full-time. Am I nervous? You bet. But most of all I’m excited about what we’ll see, the people we’ll meet and the experiences we’ll have together as a family.
Needless to say, I’ve been working hard at creating a wardrobe that a) I can comfortably travel in and b) that’s small because storage space is obviously an issue. As I’ve mentioned before, shorts are not my favorite thing to wear, so I’ve been trying to find active wear and casual clothes that I can really live life in.
I’m happy to report I’ve found my perfect pair of pants.
They are the Lizbeth Capri from prAna, a company that loves our planet and creating clothing that is versatile for any lifestyle and any adventure. Even an adventure like traveling full-time for a year.
When I first slipped these pants on, I knew they were different than anything else I owned. I also knew these would quickly become my go-to pants on the road. The pleats give them a dressier feel and the capri length makes them perfect for warmer weather.
They’re made with a blend of soft hemp, recycled materials and include spandex for a little bit of stretch. Stretch is my friend.
You might be asking what hemp is all about and why it matters. (I was curious too.) You can learn more about hemp here and find out why it’s a wonder crop.
I’m also wearing the gorgeous Liana Sweater in Bora Bay. I fell in love with the asymmetrical design and how lightweight it is. It comes in three colors and is made with a blend of soft hemp and organic cotton. Slip it on over your favorite cami and you’re ready to go.
Why does organic cotton matter? You can find out here.
This outfit is so incredibly comfortable, stylish and versatile. I love how I can wear it chilling out around the camp fire and also head into the city to see the sights.
Not only does prAna make clothing you can really live in, but you can also feel good about supporting a brand that cares about the planet and wants to make sustainable clothing accessible and important to everyone. One of my favorite things about prAna is how each designer creates and tests prAna’s clothing on their own adventures and love for the outdoors.
“We create versatile, stylish, and sustainable clothing and accessories that you can wear during every activity, every adventure, every day. How do we know? Because we base our designs on our own experiences. You see we’re more than makers, we’re doers—yogis, climbers, and world travelers—and we use our knowledge to make clothes that look good and play hard.”
I love that.
You can read more about who they are and their why here.
