Packing prAna clothes in my travel bag

Travel. It’s one thing I’m a huge fan of, whether it’s for work, or it’s for pleasure, I love it. I go with my kids, or with girlfriends. Hell, I’m even big on traveling solo. Packing? Packing sucks. However, in support of the sustainable clothing movement, I’ve found packing prAna clothes in my travel bag brings a smile to my face!

Packing prAna in my travel bag isn’t always about a big trip

For me, travel isn’t always about a big trip. Every day there’s something I’m running to, whether it’s for the kids, or for my work. Day trips into Manhattan require more than just one outfit, and one pair of shoes. Before trips into Manhattan, throwing together a few pieces to take me from day into evening is essential. Traveling in the Spring is so much easier. Pieces are more versatile, and much lighter.

However, warm days don’t always translate to warm evenings. Starting out in a cute dress, with phone and laptop in hand, doesn’t mean I’ll return home in the same dress! Temperatures change quickly, and it’s important to pack a little bag with alternatives. Comfort is key, but everything must look professional. Most trips into Manhattan mix business with pleasure, and let’s face it, I’m not rolling up for cocktails in sweats!

The truth is, I prefer wearing clothing that feels like I’m not wearing clothing at all. At home, I wear little clothing. (Benefits of working from home.)

It’s all about the prAna pockets

No matter what, I fill my with errands, and quick trips to a variety of places. If I’m doing small trips, and running errands, I need pockets in all of my clothing. Pocket books are NOT my thing. Dresses must have pockets. Skirts, too. Pants must have multiple pockets. prAna hooks me up with all the pockets I want, and need, to make my daily trips easy.
