So in honor of Queen Vicky’s B-day, and the informal end of the winter season and the arrival of summer (fingers crossed), we Canadians are going to celebrate, take the three day weekend, and make an escape. Whether it be downtown, to the lake, or out of the city, finding what to wear and packing the right kind of options is essential. For a May 24 getaway we decided to throw together some pieces for you guys and gals while keeping the contents light, and giving you looks from day to night.
For the ladies, a change of casual sandals to studded boots, gives a look a little more playful appeal from day to night. The flowy harem pants can be worn dressed down with a tank or dressed up with jewelery. It is all about a bold print for tanks, which can be styled girly or have a bit of edge with a certain hairstyle, and makeup.
As for the boys, comfort is key. Light cork sole slip-ons will appease any flip flop fella, and give them a more tailored look altogether. A funky printed button-up is fun for a night out on the town, while the basic tee and tank can be worn with jeans or, a fan favorite, cut off sweats.
So party on! The Queen insists!

Yesterday we saw how Tallow’s collection was influenced by a trip to Africa and today we go south. Fashion is always looking for inspiration to create and design and what better place to look then to tradition. Circa and Rhythm both took suggestion from the traditional Mexican blanket and made them everyday wearable.

The purpose of travel is not only to visit new places but to return to the place where we came from with fresh eyes.
Tallow traveled to Africa to gather inspiration for their spring and summer collection. From the journey they brought back the fabric and textile ideas, beautiful vibrant colours along with incredible pictures.

It seems that each year us girls spend too much time trying to find the perfect pair of denim shorts. The first few months of summer go by with no success until we decide that fall is around the corner, and so we give up until the following year. This year I have decided not to delay and I ordered in the perfect premium denim shorts from Fidelity. With both a short model and a long, depending on your preference, these stretch denim shorts will end your search.

Salt Water Sandals have been a summertime staple for over 60 years. With a very classic and versatile look they will be a perfect fit in every spring wardrobe.
The thick leather upper is carefully stitched to the rubber sole using a Littleway stitch (a special method that seals the hole around the thread to keep water from entering the sole). Each Salt Water sandal has brass buckle closures and is so incredibly comfortable. The Salt Water sandals are meant to be worn in the water and can be thrown in the washing machine to clean off the reminiscence of your summer adventures.

From the squawks of car horns, the buzz of people on the streets and the animal and greenery inspired prints, its feeling like a jungle in here. Get a little wild with a jungle inspired print for Spring.

Nautical symbols and styles from the Sea have always been a recurring look in fashion over the years. From blue and white stripes, to rope bracelets, ships and anchors; the symbols of the Sea are adorned and admired by Fashionistas and Fellas. The history of the Anchor dates back milennia, where rocks were in fact used as the first attempts for the design of the Anchor. As time went on the look and design of the Anchor progressed. The Anchor became the symbol and structure that we know today, and adorn on jewelry, clothes, paintings and even permanently as tattoos.

Rain, rain go away, come again another day. (by ‘another day’ we mean, a day when you are prepared with a sweet umbrella)
To hide from the rainy weather pop open one of these Fourstar camo umbrellas and keep yourself dry.

The Cross Canada Chemex Tour will be taking its first coffee break at Slaysh tomorrow,
Saturday April 27th, from 1:30-4:30.
The tour is a project dreamed up by a coffee lover from Toronto who will be driving the country with his portable coffee bar and serving up some brews (the caffeinated type).
Chris from Working Coffee will be highlighting a Brazilian Coffee by the name of Cachoeira de Grama. It is roasted by Detour Coffee Roasters from Dundas, Ontario. The coffee will be brewed using a manual brew method called a Chemex. This process is visually appealing as well as making a really clean, tasty cup of coffee.
Coffee lovers in Ottawa shouldn’t miss this opportunity to support the tour, taste an excellent cup of coffee and be educated by Working Coffee on what makes a good cup of Joe.
