Guess what you guys!?!?!?!? It’s FINALLY cooling down in Arizona, I almost can’t believe it. For the next foreseeable future, the high will be 80 degrees MAX or maybe even less. You can’t see me but I’m literally jumping up and down doing the happy dance. I know I’ve mentioned it before but I am an Arizona native which means I grew up in the heat and it never bothered me at all. In fact, when I came back from Grad School I was freezing all the time, which I thought was totally normal, girls are cold all the time right? I remember stepping out into 120-degree weather being so thankful for it as it warmed my very cold skin. Fast forward to fixing my iron issues as well as my hormone issues, now I’m hot ALL THE TIME. It’s something that I’ve really had to get used to, especially in the summer. Thankfully now, it’s getting cooler again and I can head back outside (at a time other than 5 am in something other than a sports bra and shorts.)
Ya for going outside! There are so many fun places to go hiking in AZ and I LOVE TO hike! That’s why I was so excited to try out a new to me active and active leisure brand, prAna. If you’ve never heard of them prAna offers sustainable, recycled, fair trade certified and hemp items. Not only that but prAna prioritizes prAna.
I don’t know about you but when I think of hemp clothing I think of “hippy clothing” that you see at Whole Foods. Then I remember that according to my mom, I am a modern-day millennial hippy. She reminds me every time I tell her something I’m doing that she considers “granola girlish.” Like when I tell her I use coconut oil instead of lotion most of the time. My mom thinks it’s “hippy of me” but I think most of us are trying to move toward natural items in our house nowadays. That’s why I was so excited when the folks at prAna sent me some of their clothing to try out. You guys, these mantra pants are literally the most comfortable pants I’ve ever had in my life. I really want to order another pair in the army green because that is one of my FAVORITE colors! Plus the Rockaway jacket is so freaking soft! It’s perfect for an early morning walk or hikes around the Arizona trails by my house.
Fun fact, prAna clothes are made using hemp. So, I happen to know for a fact that some people are freaked out by the utilization of hemp in any way. I know this because I’ve gotten comments on my seed cycling post about it. Personally, hemp seeds have been a vital part of healing my hormones so for that I am thankful to have them. I think any time we can use more than just one part of a plant to make multiple things we are on the right track. It’s better than just using part of it and discarding the rest! I 100% respect your opinion to not support hemp products, that’s totally okay, that’s your right. We live in America and you get to chose that for yourself, to me that is a beautiful thing. However, if you are interested in learning more I included this video by prAna which I found really interesting!
Personally, I totally dig the story, I think it’s super cool. I love that I feel like I could throw on these clothes and head out for a hike, then to the store, and get on with my day. They are versatile enough to be comfortable and fashionable, which is so important to me because no two days are ever the same in my world. I’m often running all over the place to different stores and to meet different clients, it’s important I have a versatile wardrobe! Sometimes it can be hard to fit in fitness into my day, that’s why I love that I feel like I can with one outfit! It’s also nice to know that I’m making a small difference in the world by supporting a company committed to fair trade and sustainable practices.
Definitely follow them on your favorite social channels: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter! And now through 11/22 Hungry Hobby readers can get 15% off using the code FFKEF17 so get on it, people! For reference, I ordered a medium in the pants because I wanted them to be more of a relaxed fit and a small in the jacket.
My favorite way to stay active during the fall/winter is to get outside, but I know that varies accross the country. What do you guys do to stay active when it cools off?
