Now I have to be 100% honest here. Even though I am working to lose weight and get back into running, I am very uncomfortable with my current size. It is hard to “feel” pretty and to find clothes that flatter and make me feel good about myself. When I first looked over the prAna website, I was worried that the outfit I chose would not fit me well. I questioned whether my “curves” would compliment the sporty active look. I am pleased to say that I was wrong.
I love, love, love the Garland top. It is so silky soft and is perfect for a dinner out or tossed on with a pair of exercise pants. It is super light weight and would work great as a running shirt. The scoop neck collar and capped sleeves are very flattering. Plus it will be a perfect travel shirt for when we got to China this summer. The only recommendation I would suggest is for the shirt to be a tad bit longer. As a person with a very long waist and short legs, I prefer to ordering the shirt in tall to give me a little more coverage.
Now, the Kara Jean. The word “jean” doesn’t really do these pants justice. Made of an amazing soft stretch denim, these pants are almost as comfortable as a pair of pajamas. I couldn’t see myself actually exercising in them but they are the perfect for a fancier pant than just your normal pair of jeans. For the review I ordered the purple fog in a size 12. I actually measured between two sizes and chose the larger size. The fit is good but because of the stretch, by the end of the day, I have some unnecessary give in the waist. I could possibly try a size 10 but I worry they would be too tight in the thigh area. The Kara Jeans are very generous in length and roll up neatly. I like that I can make them into a long crop or wear them all the way to the ankle. They look great with both flats or sneakers.
Since I can dress business casual at work, the Kara Jean is works perfect. I would love to get these in a couple of other colors, especially the sun washed red and silver.
