prAna drea jacket

What the cool moms wear to soccer!

This past week the weather has been strange in New England. Warm one day—the kind of warm that has my six-year-old talking me into letting her wear shorts and sandals to go to piano class—and cool the next—hats and gloves required. That’s autumn, I know, and it’s one of my favorite times of year. The air is crisp and clear, and the leaves are golden, red, and orange, dancing on the trees scattered throughout my neighborhood. We’re only days away from having those leaves on the ground and snow in the air. It’s a time to get ready to snuggle up, to curl up, a time to get cozy and warm.

Cozy is my preferred state of being, and I am the queen of layering in my clothing. I don’t think I have ever met a sweater or cover-up I didn’t like so strong is my desire never to be chilly. I was excited therefore when the folks at Stonyfield and prAna invited me to partner up.

I’ve written about Stonyfield on Red Shutters before. As a member of Stonyfield’s blogger program, I have the opportunity to tell you about Stonyfield products, especially how they fit into our family’s busy life. This is a natural connection for us, as we were Stonyfield fans long before I became one of their bloggers. A few months ago, my family tried out a new product from Stonyfield, Oh My Yog!, which is essentially the love child of breakfast and dessert. It’s so yummy—especially the Apple Cinnamon (that’s my favorite), and our refrigerator is stocked up with it again now (the kids are campaigning for more Wild Quebec Blueberry). Oh My Yog! is the food equivalent of a cozy sweater: it makes you feel good, cared-for, and satisfied.

I’m new to the prAna fan club, but even with only one experience with the brand, I can understand the fervor. “Clothing for people who live fully, play long, and travel well” is prAna’s tagline, and the clothing it produces reflects that sentiment. They make everything from outerwear to yoga gear, with a focus on sustainability, fair trade, and organic materials. I was gifted an item for myself, and selecting it was tortuous. Everything looked so great! After much surfing of the site (and making a long wish list for later), I chose the Drea Jacket. My family spends most of the winter on the ski slope, and I wanted something I could wear underneath my parka or on its own during our après ski sessions. That’s when we spend time with friends, make a yummy dinner, throw a dance party, or watch a movie with the kids. A top that is easy to wear and washable was a requirement for me.

The jacket arrived a few weeks ago, and I love it! The moment I put it on, I was struck by how warm it was—like wearing a blanket (but one that’s stylish!). I’ve worn it everywhere – to my kids’ soccer practice, to run errands, and to walk the kids to school. I’ve worn it over pajamas to have breakfast with my family on weekend mornings (while we eat our yogurt, of course!) and to make angels with my daughter in the leaf pile in our backyard. I’m even wearing it now as I write up this post!

For me, the Stonyfield and prAna partnership seems obvious: two companies with business goals to make high-quality products while, at the same time, ensuring positive impacts on the world. As a consumer, I can believe in that, and it’s a factor in where I shop.

As we head deeper into autumn, you’ll find me ever more focused on staying cozy and feeling good—with what goes into my body—good food—and what covers me up—cozy clothes.
