A few weekend confessions: 1. I’m not a high fashion blogger (big surprise there, right?) 2. When I connect with the mission behind a brand, I am fiercely loyal, and 3. Even when I am fiercely loyal, sometimes I still give a potential review product some serious side eye.
That’s what happened when I got the new fall pant called the Annexi Pant from prAna to try out for fall. I love, love, love prAna (which, btw, is the ancient Sanskrit word for breath, life and vitality of spirit) for SO many reasons…
- prAna clothing is designed with “purpose” in mind
- design inspiration is taken from around the world
- their sustainable clothing is versatile and stylish for every activity, every adventure, every day
- prAna partners with like-minded folks who want to promote conservation and create positive change
- part of the prAna mission is to support sustainably sourced and grown materials, Fair Trade and renewable energy initiatives
So, what’s not to love, right? Expect for the fact that I simply could not imagine how these the Annexi pant would look on me. That brings me to yet another confession: I’m far from my ideal weight, and I’ve been beating myself up for it pretty badly lately. These pants are super cute, but what if you’re not yoga-perfect?
The answer? OMG! I’m not being dramatic at all when I tell you that these are my absolute favorite new fall pant for anything my day might bring. I’m a busy mom, and my days take me lots of places – a client’s office for a business casual meeting, the school’s walker pick-up line, the sidelines at soccer practice or at home with a PiYo DVD. The Annexi pant is THE pant to wear for any and every errand, meeting, class, or activity you might have.
Here’s my mini and I, right in front of good ol’ #9, after a day at the office in the Annexi pant. Posting photos of myself is not my favorite thing, but here it is folks: Real mom. Real clothes. And I had four people ask me where I got my pants that day!
The Annexi is flattering for all body types, washes really easily (no wrinkles!), matches with virtually anything, and is designed in prAna’s sustainable Sutra performance fabric. Lightweight, comfortable and includes the perfect amount of supportive stretch and the perfect amount of slouch. There’s even a super comfy brushed back elastic waistband for a sure fit.
• 53% Hemp/ 44% Recycled Poly/ 3% Spandex
• Available in Black Herringbone & Coal
What to pair it with? Well, I’d be inclined to say anything. But first and foremost, you’ve got to have prAna’s Ravena top in burnout jersey knit. It’s a more artistic approach to sustainable style, and it’s ideal for layering over tanks or under cardigans. With long sleeves, a thin burnout knit and crew neckline, it’s ideal for fall weather, and all the way through winter with layers.
• 54% Recycled Poly/ 46% Organic Cotton
• Available in Baltic, Charcoal, Fireball & Grey Indigo
