prAna Fall Style – Fashion Review + Discount Code

As part of the #pranafallstyle campaign, I was given the opportunity to review two of prAna’s fall pieces!

Yes, yes… I know… I live in Florida, I still have a good 2-3 months until fall weather hits. Please don’t remind me! Fall is my favorite season and I love getting in the cool weather mood early. I don’t know about you but my cool weather mood involves cute and comfy fall fashion along with everything pumpkin and candles.

Thanks to prAna, I was able to try out two of their pieces – the London Jean in Dark Indigo and the Stacia Sweater in charcoal. I only have one photo and it is inside because it was 95 degrees the day I decided to take photos ;) #notsweaterweather

I look casual chic, yes?! ;)

Both pieces are not only the perfect fall fashion pieces, they are also super comfortable and will be great for a day of football watching with friends. The jeans and the sweater are both made with organic cotton and the Stacia Sweater is also fair trade certified! The dark hue of the London Jeans is very flattering – I also love that these jeans are not super low cut… No worries about your undies showing when you sit on the ground or move around.

I already know that I am going to LIVE in the Stacia Sweater during this Florida winter! I love the loose fit and it would be easy to layer if you choose to do so. I’m a huge fan of the color gray and the slight pattern of the stitching adds a unique touch to this lightweight piece. I also own a pair of prAna’s Meme Pant in Cargo Green and this sweater is going to look FAB when I wear them together.

We have a family trip next month to the mountains and you better bet that I’ll be wearing both of my new prAna pieces to stay warm! Cute, comfy, fashionable, and easy to wear – What more could you want for fall fashion?

Friday Favs

Is it Friday? Are we sure? I’ve had all of my days this week confused – I thought Monday was Tuesday and Wednesday was Tuesday… Phew. Thankfully, today IS Friday!

IMG_0994

We don’t have any major plans for the weekend and it will be nice to relax after being on the go last weekend. Kyle and I are both still feeling “blah” with colds and you know how it goes when the hubs is sick… ;) #endoftheworld HEHEHEHE.

Anyways, let’s chat some favs from the past week!

My pink nails – I haven’t gotten a gel manicure in FOREVER. And by forever I mean at least 2 years. I love how long they last… I may need to get another one this coming week for a bachelorette party I have next weekend. I’m thinking white nails this time… Yay? Nay?

IMG_0966

Target. Okay, this is alwayssss a favorite! But I have recently realized that I typically now only shop for Dean rather than spend my fun Target money on myself. Go figure. This week I found a couple of new beach hats (adorable!) and a birthday shirt. Totally unnecessary but totally cute.

IMG_1122 (1)

I’m FINALLY starting to feel better. UGH. I’ve had this cold/cough/congestion crap for over a week now and I finally feel like I’m on the mend. Kid germs are no joke!! I’m hoping Kyle’s version doesn’t last as long as mine did and that we will all be healthy for the next few weeks.

Chatting with my internet friends. Messaging and texting and emailing my blogging/internet friends always makes my day! I love chatting with fitness lovers and mamas – It is important to have a good group of friends even if you’ve never met in real life ;)

A HUGE goodie box from prAna last night! I participated in their #pranaspringstyle event with Fit Approach and as a thank you, they sent me everything from spring jackets to a swim suit to a new duffel bag to pants to shorts! I love it all – Thank you, prAna!

Linking up with Katie and Heather for Friday Favorites!

What are a few of your favorites from the past week? Are you doing anything fun this weekend?

Spring Fitness Fashion + Discount Code!

At the beginning of February, I participated in a fun Instagram challenge with Fit Approach and prAna – The #PoseofTheDay challenge for prAna’s spring clothing line.

I’m always up for a challenge and incorporating yoga into my life always provides positive benefits. Who couldn’t use a little extra stretching and zen in their lives?!

Check out a few of my yoga poses (FYI – My form is definitely not perfect… I’m a yoga work in progress ;) ) from the challenge:

You can find all of my poses on my Instagram account.

As a gift for participating in the challenge, prAna sent me a gorgeous new pair of their Ashley Capri Leggings in Azalea. What a gorgeous pink color, right?

IMG_9829

These leggings are part of their new spring line (I want everyyyyything!) and I couldn’t love them more! I was a bit hesitant to try out a pair of solid colored leggings that were not my typical black. Sometimes the material is NOT flattering and I was worried these leggings would look awful once I put them on. I’m thankful that was not the case – The material hides all of my bumps and lumps – LOL – and the pants look great on. Plus, I mean, they’re pink… That’s never a bad thing ;)

Now that I wear active wear to work day in and day out, I’m always looking for new pieces to incorporate into my wardrobe. These pants are great for yoga (obviously!) but also great for classes I teach like HIIT, BODYPUMP, and Spinning. They don’t move or twist or change position which I definitely appreciate when I’m teaching in front of 30 people! The Ashley Capri Leggings are also great to wear for errand day (they look awesome with a chambray button up shirt) or a day of lounging around the house.

A few other pieces I love from prAna’s new spring line include the Roxanne Capri (super fun designs), the Emma Knicker (perfect for the beach), and the Sutra Shirt (hello casual Saturday).

Another thing I especially love about prAna is their focus on sustainability. Before this challenge, I had no familiarity with bluesign or that prAna was committed to environmentally-friendly apparel production. What is bluesign, you ask?

Per the bluesign website:

The bluesign® system is the solution for a sustainable textile production. It eliminates harmful substances right from the beginning of the manufacturing process and sets and controls standards for an environmentally friendly and safe production. This not only ensures that the final textile product meets very stringent consumer safety requirements worldwide but also provides confidence to the consumer  to acquire a sustainable product.

Pretty interesting, right? I’m all about protecting our planet for future generations and am happy to support the process with my clothing purchases.

Thanks for making great clothing AND for supporting sustainability, prAna!

Now, what y’all have been waiting for… A discount code! You can save 15% off of prAna’s new spring line (and any of their gear) by using the code: PSSS16ONW 

Let me know what you’re going to purchase!

Have you ever participated in a yoga challenge? Do you focus on sustainable practices when making purchases? What is your favorite item from prAna’s spring line?

#103 Treat Yourself Tuesday

I really need to do better with typing these TYT posts up on Monday evenings. Apparently Dean knows that it is his job to sleep in on Tuesdays and I (of course) take full advantage of that.

IMG_4861

Let’s jump right into the treats this morning, shall we?

Treat Yourself Tuesday Badge

I took on a SPINNING class at the Y. I haven’t started yet – Since I’ll be in Chicago all of next week, I will be starting the week after Labor Day. It’s a Spinning 101 class so it’ll be pretty basic and a good one for me to jump into! Now I have to get to the gym this week to nail down my songs and get my rides figured out.

All of my new prAna gear <– Did you check out my post? I am obsessed with it all, but especially my new Meme Pants. Gah – Love them!

IMG_4855

Working on our home office! It’s still going to be some time before I get it completed but at least we have a table and chairs now ;) My goal this week is to find some new bookshelves and some fun wall decor. I’m thinking we will also need a bar cart for the office… a little Mad Men style!

IMG_4801

A fun weekend with my boys – We had dinner out on Friday (pre-hurricane prep), followed by ice cream. On Saturday we hung out around home, grabbed Mexican for lunch, I made these brownies, and ran a few errands. It was a nice and relaxing weekend which is what we needed before a full week of travel busyness starting on Friday.

IMG_4779

IMG_4735

I’m not sure this was a treat for me, but I set up Dean’s new Baby Einstein jumper. Dude – Whoever wrote the instructions for that thing needs to take the “scientific communication” course I was forced to take in undergrad. No words, no part descriptions, just weird photos and arrows. Yeahhhh. But it’s bright and fun and I think Dean will really like it in a few weeks!

IMG_4794

How did you treat yourself last week? Do you have any fun trips planned? What is your favorite song for a SPIN class?

Living in fit gear

If you know me, you know that I love to live my day-to-day life in fitness gear. Nothing is more comfortable and quick to put on in the mornings than my stretchy tops and shorts.

However, I’m starting to think that everyone may believe I own nothing BUT fit gear, LOL. While that’s not a huge issue – I mean who doesn’t like to live in their fitness apparel, I do like to look nice and put together on occasion. Don’t be too shocked now ;)

Thankfully, with the help of prAna, I can have the best of both worlds. Comfortable fitness apparel that is fashionable enough for a fun day out with friends!

As part of the #7daystretch campaign, I was sent four pieces from prAna. I’m pumped to share them with y’all today!

First off, let’s chat the Meme Pants. Before trying these on I was skeptical. I have always wanted to pull of the army green, cargo pant look but wasn’t sure my muscular legs would look good in these slim fittin’ pants. I was more than pleasantly surprised when I tried them on – Cute, right?! I LOVE that I can pair them with a casual black tank and flip flops for a relaxed look or with wedges and a fun top for a casual girls night out. In addition to being super cute, they are soft and comfortable as well. Love ’em!

IMG_4855

Next up, is the Sabin T-Back Top. I wore this tank to teach BODYPUMP over the weekend – it didn’t budge an inch and wicked my sweat away like no other (TMI? Sorry – I sweat a lot so I like to know when tanks help in that area, haha!) This piece is going to be a staple in my workout gear rotation and I know that it would be cute over jeans or regular shorts as well. Yup, a winner in my book!

IMG_4814

Now, onto the Ergo Leggings. You guyssss… These leggings feel like your most comfortable pair of sweat pants but in a lightweight, legging form. TOTAL winning. The pattern of the pants is super flattering as well and they make your booty look ah-maz-ing! ;) I have been living in these the past few days and while I don’t think I could dress them up with stilettos, I think they’re perfect for a cafe date or a run to Target.

IMG_4672

Finally, I am excited to share the Holly Dress! Living in a warm climate, I love pieces that are quick and easy to throw on after a day at the beach or a workout and the Holly Dress is exactly that piece! The built-in bra is supportive enough that you don’t need to wear an additional one underneath and the fabric is lightweight and cool – perfect for a post-workout brunch or errands. I kind of wish I would have ordered the Solid Black fabric because I think it could easily pair with a jean jacket and a few of my fun wedges but the pattern of the dress I received is fun as well.

IMG_4852

So I guess I have answered my own question… I will continue to live in my workout gear, I’ll just look a little bit more fashionable while doing it ;) The perks of being your own boss and working from home, hehe! Thanks prAna!

#sundayzenday

We are to the final day of the #7daystretch with prAna and Fit Approach!

This week flew by for me – Anyone else agree?

Today called for sharing our favorite ways to restore your mind, body, and soul. For me, that involves being active! I always feel mentally and physically recharged (after a long shower of course, haha) after a sweaty gym session whether it be BODYPUMP, yoga, SPINNING, or running. I love ’em all!

IMG_4822

Our bonus photo was to share our zen space. I think my new zen space will be my office – once it is finished, but I decided to share my gym’s BODYPUMP/yoga room. I always feel calm walking through the doors and love what the space has done for me.

#sunsalutesaturday

Today’s prAna and Fit Approach #7daystretch challenge could not be more appropriate – It’s a beautiful and sunny day here in Florida! (We shall see how long that continues with the storm heading our way…)

I took full advantage of the sun and hit up the sidewalk today for a hot run full of Vitamin D :)

We are sharing our favorite side stretch for Saturday Side Stretch – Mine is what you see below. I love how it stretches your body’s entire side, from your arm stretched overhead to your obliques to your IT band to your outer leg. It’s by far my favorite, especially after a long run!

IMG_4756

And my bonus, #sunsalutesaturday was my above mentioned run. It was hot and muggy and TWO whole minutes faster than the last time I ran the loop. Woohoo!

#freefriday #ForearmFriday

Hiya! How’s your weekend going so far? It’s been a fun one for us and I’ll share more details later because right now we’re chatting Friday’s #7daystretch!

Friday called for sharing what makes us feel most free. I love being outside and enjoying the beauty of nature. It is such a free feeling so I snapped a photo of one of Naples’ gorgeous beaches to share.

IMG_4680

The bonus photo was to celebrate forearm Friday! I was due for a good plank after my morning leg workout, so while Dean was doing his tummy time, I did mine as well ;) Good for your upper body and core – Forearm planks are a great full body exercise!

#TBT

Wow, we are already to Thursday of the #7daystretch with prAna and Fit Approach! This week is flying.

Today’s Instagram challenge called for throwing it back (TBT = Throwback Thursday) to a time when you stretched outside of your comfort zone.

Hiking at a bajillion feet in Colorado last summer. ‘Nuff said. I was training for the Chicago Marathon at this point and I was still out of breath – Phew! The elevation there is no joke.

IMG_4668

The bonus photo was to show your favorite pair of stretchy pants. I believe I just received a new favorite today. These are prAna’s Ergo Leggings and my oh my are they ever comfortable! They feel like super soft sweatpants but are lightweight and perfect for my Florida climate. I think you’ll be seeing a lot of these in the future ;)
