#SummerCravings with Stonyfield + prAna [Giveaway]

Giveaway SummerCravings with prAna - 1

What do you crave this summer? What I’m craving right now is my summer vacation to North Carolina. All I can think about is a pair of comfy, sexy jeans that can be worn to the farmer’s market in the morning, a beautiful hike in the afternoon, and seamlessly transition to an evening at the winery. Those are three of my favorite summer activities, which I look forward to every year as the days get longer and the weather balmier. The abundance of fresh veggies, outdoor exercise, friendly people, and the feel-good food that comes out of a trip to the farmer’s market and hike just can’t be beat, in my opinion. It’s a great family activity that I often do with both my son and husband.

While my family is on vacation, we spend mornings at the market picking up fresh bread, cheese, and herbs to make a tasty dip, then spend the afternoon hiking one of our favorite mountain trails, only to be finished off with a relaxing evening next to the bubbling river at the winery. Is there a more perfect way to relax than sipping good wine and enjoying homemade, healthy treats? It’s one of my family’s favorite ways to spend a day there. We all love these little getaways—even my 15 year old, who spends our winery time either sketching on the mountainside above the winery or reading a book while he literally sits on a rock in the river.

Whether I’m just stopping by the farm stands near home on the weekend, or going to the market near the vineyards during our vacation, I like to be dressed for the occasion. I tend to favor simple, classic wardrobe items from brands who focus on sustainability and natural materials. I appreciate being able to get clothes that suit my lifestyle and which work with my values. Right now the item of clothing that is in top rotation is the Kara Jean from prAna. Versatile, comfortable, and fashionable, they’re made with 75% organic cotton denim and come in a wide variety of colors and even prints!

I can see these working really well with a simple tee for daytime, layered with a button-down shirt, or dressed up a little with a cute blouse for dinner and drinks. prAna has been mentioned by me before, because they’re a company that really gets it; they value sustainability and well-made products. Their organic cotton collection definitely has some of the most stylish earth-friendly clothing I’ve laid eyes on. Colorful, pretty, and practical, I’d wear it every day; clothing that makes me happy and works with the kind of life I live.

One of my other #SummerCravings which I like to indulge both at home and on vacation is a delicious bit of Greek-style yogurt. The best brand for this, in my opinion, is Stonyfield Organic. They have a wide range of yogurts, from 0% to full fat, plain or flavored, and even with fruit and chia seed additions! Best of all, the milk comes from pasture-raised cows, and is free of pesticides and antibiotics. For a savory treat, I love a little whole-milk Greek yogurt mixed with fresh herbs from the garden or farmer’s market, to go with a yummy baguette and glass of wine. On days I’m looking for a simple, healthy dessert, the yogurt with fruit add-ins is such a delight. Stonyfield is definitely a major player in creating satisfying summer snacks for me and my family.
