Fresh Produce: A Review

I was pretty excited recently to be contacted by a clothing company to do a review of a clothing item of my choice from their collection.  Fresh Produce is a new company to me and I was more than happy to check them out. 

Their motto is "live life-enjoy color" and if you look at their clothing lines that certainly rings true.  Their clothes are casual, comfortable and yet very stylish with many color choices per item.  I love having choices! 

I must say after browsing their collections for all styles of tops, dresses, skirts, shorts and pants, it was difficult to decide.  There were so many things I wanted to try out!  I finally decided on an article of clothing that my summer wardrobe sadly lacks: shorts.  Now, I don't wear shorts often.  I'm certainly not against modest shorts-ha-I just usually feel more comfortable in capris, but sometimes I do wish for a good pair of comfortable shorts.  

So I finally decided on the Stretch Broadcloth Safari Pedal Pusher....in "truffle".  There were lots of colors available, but I have to say I'm terribly practical in that I tend to choose colors that can go with lots of other colors and I usually put my color into my tops (although I realize in the photo below I wore the basics:).  I was so excited when they arrived because I hadn't had a good pair of shorts in a while!

I am absolutely LOVING these shorts!  I can wear them rolled up (as in the photo) or I can leave them rolled down for more of the pedal pusher look.  The fabric is light weight and cool and the fit is great.  They have a simple button and drawstring tie at the waist for a really comfortable fit.  I admit that I was worried about that because it seems like whenever I go to a store that sizes are never true and it's hard to find a good fit.  That was not the case here.  Plus they washed and dried great--with the fit holding true (no shrinkage--yea!).  These retail for $69, but right now they are on sale for $47.99.  

If you're looking for some quality clothing that is modest, comfortable and stylish then I would encourage you to look at Fresh Produce's website.  They have some lovely new summer collections (that just make me want to head to the beach!).  They have many styles of capri pants, summer pants and much more casual fashion.  Also, if you live outside of the United States, Fresh Produce now ships to over 200 countries around the world.  

And now I'm ready to go shopping again!

Disclaimer: I received this pair of shorts from Fresh Produce in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
