Styles That Keep Up With Your Summer Plans

Can you believe summer is almost here? The kids will be out of school before you know it and there will be days spent at the lake, pool, beach, hiking, camping, off on a summer vacation or road trip, or even just relaxing at home with a slower paced schedule. No matter what you have planned this summer, you’ll want clothes that are versatile.

We’ve partnered with prAna to show you how you can go from the office straight to an afternoon hike with your family. Or transition from an afternoon picnic to splashing with your feet in the lake. They’ve shared samples with me to showcase my favorite looks for keeping up with your summer plans. Best of all, prAna is sharing an exclusive code just for my readers to score 15% off, be sure to grab that coupon at the end of the post. Let’s get started!

 

Ready for Anything

Here I’m wearing the Halle Pant in Coal. I’m wearing a size 6 with the short inseam option. These pants are so incredibly comfortable. They are a dreamy fit with a stretch weave that lets them move with me easily, no matter what I’m up to.

These pants are the perfect bottoms for evening activities as they are a long cut to protect your legs when it starts to get cold or from pesky bugs, but they can be rolled up and snaps into a capri giving you so many options. Because they’re thinner and lighter than jeans, they don’t feel stuffy in the summer heat.

The coal color goes great with everything in your wardrobe. I love it paired with the Portfolio V-Neck Top in Bora Bay Maya. I’m wearing a size small. The colors in this top are all of my favorites in one gorgeous pattern. I’m in love with the colors.

It’s a thin, lightweight top that is breathable, which makes it so comfortable. The organic cotton makes this top soft and the jersey knit gives is a perfect stretch. I could live in this shirt!

Other combinations to try: Pair the Halle pant with a Gina top and you’re ready for the office. Try the Portfolio V-Neck top with the Bliss Capri for a day out and about.

Casual & Comfortable

Here I am wearing the Larissa Knicker in Mood Indigo. I ordered a size 6 and they fit me perfectly. These bottoms have quickly become my favorite item in my closet. They are so comfortable and the dark teal is incredibly flattering. I love that they add color to my outfit but don’t make me feel to bold or crazy. I’ve been wearing the knickers over my swimsuit, too, keep scrolling for the picture!

On top I’m wearing the Harlene top in Cobblestone Milos, in a size small. The subtle pattern is really flattering and keeps me feeling comfy and casual without looking like I just tossed on a plain t-shirt. It’s made with a lightweight combination of recycled polyester and organic cotton which makes it so soft and not heavy or stuffy feeling.

I love the fit, pattern, and color of this top. It fits perfectly what I was hoping to add to my summer wardrobe. This same Harlene top comes in a couple of bold colors, too, great for adding color to your styles.

Other combinations to try: Wear your Harlene top in a bold color paired with the ultra comfy Mantra pant for a casual day at home. Wear your Larissa Knicker with your swimwear and you’re ready to go from the party to the pool or waterfront in seconds.

Out on the Town

You don’t have to be uncomfortable to be ready to impress. The Bliss Capri looks like you put in a ton of effort, but they work for whatever you have planned. Dress them up for a night out on the town, choose something casual for an errand day, or pick one of your favorite office tops to transition these lightweight capris to be perfect for the office. I’m wearing a size small in Raisin.

I absolutely love the color as they bring so much interest to my outfits and surprisingly go with so much that I already own. I was a little worried these deep mauve color would be hard to pair tops with, but it works with a wide range of colors and makes everything I try on really pop.

I adore this Gina Top in Cove that I paired together with the Bliss capris to complete this look. The colors are so vivid and pretty. I’m wearing a size small, which is just a tiny bit tight through my belly, but fits wonderfully through my arms and bust. It’s not so tight it’s restricting, and should fit me perfectly when I drop a couple more pounds like I have been working towards since January. I’m halfway to my goal weight!

Other combinations to try: Wear the Bliss Capri with the Harlene Top, the colors look amazing together. Pair the Gina Top with Larissa Knickers for your 4th of July festivities and you’ll be on-point!

Time for the Beach, Pool, and Lake!

The best part of summer is all the time to play in the water! We just moved to the East Coast this past December and we’re absolutely loving the close access to lakes and beaches now. We’ve already spent time at lake (just a few minutes from our home) and the beach (a short 3 hour drive) several times and summer isn’t even officially here yet.

The only thing I dread about summer is picking out a swimsuit. It can be hard to find something that is flattering and fits well and will last the whole season. I’m so happy to have found the Dreaming Tankini in Sunlit Coral Riviera. It has gorgeous detailing, especially on the back, that really caught my eye. And the colors, they’re striking! I’m wearing the tankini top in a size small. It’s a little shorter than most tops I choose, but I’m still really happy with it.

I paired the top with a Raya Bottom in Black and went with a size Medium. I thoguht the swim top had black in it, but it’s more of a dark brown. Even so, they still look great together.

I prefer to be covered up when not in the water, and the Larissa Knickers are perfect for that! They don’t feel heavy and thick like other shorts or capris might, they feel like they were meant for a day in the water.

prAna Sizing and Discout

Sometimes ordering online, it can be hard to know just what size to get. prAna does have a sizing chart to help, but I found the comments and reviews on each item very helpful for picking out my own sizing. I’ve referenced my sizing above next to the styles, but for reference I am 5’4″, 36C and 140 lbs.

You won’t regret anything you pick out from prAna. All of their clothing is soft, comfortable, and extremely versatile. You can take an extra 15% off your order using the promo code S17TRAVELJC. It expires 30 days from today, so don’t delay!

I love the back on that shirt! So cute. I always find myself canceling plans because I only have ripped old ugly shorts. Time to go shopping!

I love the look of capris, but because I'm only 5'2", they always look like pants that are just too short on me! Do these come in petite? And if so, are they are true petite, because they look like they would be perfect for days in downtown Chicago and running errands!

Some of the bottoms have a short inseam option, others are made to be rolled as needed for flexibility and different style options. I'm 5'4" and did get one pair of bottoms in short - they fit perfectly! Their sizing is pretty generous, I needed to size down a little on most styles so check the sizing chart before ordering!
