PrAna Fall 2017 Haul and Review

I am a HUGE fan of PrAna for their unique and classic styles and their quality, sustainably made clothing. I was lucky enough to try a few of their pieces in the Spring line (read my recap here), and was THRILLED to be chosen again to receive and review a couple of items from their new Fall line too in partnership with FitApproach! I love, love, love the items I chose from PrAna's Fall line!

I have been searching for the perfect lightweight white lace top for years and I finally found it in PrAna's Robyn Top. This top is pure bohemian perfection!! I adore the scoop neck and bracelet length sleeves. The sleeves are perfect to push up casually and the slight elastic around the sleeve opening helps keep them in place (without digging into my skin).

The slightly curved front and back of the top give it a super flattering fit. I love to wear this top either untucked or half-tucked. The feminine lace detailing is my favorite part of this shirt! It has the most intricate and beautiful lace detailing on the front of the shirt, and that's carried around to the back as well. there's also the prettiest center open stitch detail that adds the prettiest interest to the top as well.

It's made of a breathable Lenzing Modal which gives it a soft and almost silky feel. It's super lightweight and the perfect transition piece, gorgeous to wear now, and then will look amazing all season long under a cardigan too!

I'm wearing the Robyn Top in Winter White, which is slightly sheer, but not so see-thru that I feel like I need to wear a cami underneath. It also comes in 2 others colors as well. It runs true to size, as I'm wearing the XS size and it fits perfectly.

I paired my Robyn Top with the London Jeans from PrAna. I must admit, I was a little nervous ordering a pair of jeans online -fit is SO IMPORTANT for jeans, but let me tell you - these did not disappoint at all and in fact, they are my current favorite pair of best-fitting jeans I own!! Well done, PrAna!!

The London Jeans are a skinny leg, mid-rise jean, which means they are fitted all the way down the leg. The rise on these is absolute perfection - they sit just below the waist, and don't show your undies when bending over - making them perfect for moms and teachers!

One thing I don't like about jeans is that they can be sometimes uncomfortable - these are the comfiest jeans EVER!! They are super soft, probably due to the organic cotton they are made of. They are constructed of a medium weight fabric that gives them a nice structure to them, yet the 1% lycra elastine makes them fluid as well. They don't stretch out, or get saggy in the bum, even after wearing them for a couple days in a row. They also don't have that annoying waist gap. Who else gets so annoyed with constantly having to wear a belt to cinch in the waist of jeans or are always having to hike up the back because they slip down?! That doesn't happen with these!!

I really do feel like these PrAna London Jeans were made for body types like mine - athletic, curvy, a little bit of a booty. They aren't too tight over my larger-than-average runner's calves, and they hug the booty in all of the right ways. My only complaint is that they are a little more fitted in the ankles, so I do have to do the lie-down-on-the bed-and-wiggle-my-way-out-of-them dance at the end of the day! Even though they are tighter at the ankles, they still aren't too tight to roll a cuff in them if you want. I love to style them this way when pairing my jeans with sandals.

The London Jean by PrAna comes in 3 colors, multiple sizes, and even 3 inseams, which as a shorty, I absolutely LOVE this option!! I am wearing the Dark Indigo shade which is the perfect dark blue with subtle wiskering on the thigh area. They run true to size and I am wearing a size 0 short. The short size is still plenty long enough for me to cuff up to pair with sandals and then leave uncuffed if you can talk me into wearing them with heels!

I really can't say enough good things about the entire PrAna Fall lineup - but I'm especially in love with my two choices and I know they'll be on heavy rotation in my closet all season long. The awesome folks at PrAna gave me a discount code to share with you - FAAJ15 for 15% off any purchase on PrAna.com. You can use it to purchase the Robyn Top or the London Jeans or anything else your heart desires!! What are your favorite clothing items to wear as the weather cools down?
