Fall is in the air! As hard as it is to say goodbye to summer, there are so many things about fall to look forward to! Skies are blue, sunshine is warm, breezes are cool, leaves are starting to turn, fabrics are cozy, pumpkin flavors abound…
One thing I absolutely love about fall is that you get the best of both worlds: cool breezes with warm sunshine. It’s the perfect weather! Warm enough to go out running in shorts and a tank top, cool enough to start busting out jeans, boots, and sweaters.
My fashion secrets and essentials: layers of clothing that enhance my ability to adventure! Yes, I’m absolutely a fan of rocking a dress and heels every so often. However, most of the time I need to be able to bust a #stopdropandyoga move at a moment’s notice, to walk around the city and be on my feet all day, to stuff clothes in a backpack to layer up over sweaty spandex after a hike or trail run, to roll around on the ground with adorable puppies… Enter two of my fall essentials from prAna!
This Mattea Sweater is the perfect layer! Made of recycled wool, it’s plenty warm when the fall crispness starts to chill the bones, but also has a layer of softness that keeps it feeling cozy against the skin. The high collar and longer length means it’s the perfect cozy layer over leggings and boots (or Vans, a la Jamie)!
Or the perfect protection from wind chilling my sweaty skin after a steep hike! I hate wanting to enjoy the view but being too cold to relax!
Or when a puppy is staring at you to throw the ball, you want to be able to stay out and play!
Jeans are the hardest for me to shop for. I’m short butt muscular (#seewhatididthere?). Finding jeans that fit my booty and my waist is quite rare. I was a little skeptical when prAna wanted to send me some jeans to try out. Lo and behold, a miracle! Their London Jeans not only fit but are my new favorite jeans! I was so excited to put them on after class the other day to wear to our customary post-yoga coffee date and proceeded to get asked where my jeans were from. The Antique Blue wash makes for a perfect classic blue jean, and the short inseam fits my short stature and still leaves me with enough material for the cuff-du-jour.
