Blooming Florals

We absolutely LOVE spring! The bright sun is shining and the beautiful flowers are blooming. The rain is falling and things are feeling so fresh. This spring there are so many textures and patterns to play with. It’s time to throw off your parkas, mitts and toques. We are so excited to show you some flirty spring outfits! Xx

This photoshoot was so uplifting and inspiring! Being creative and giggling with such amazing women was getting us so excited for Saskatoon’s sunny warm weather.

This embroidered dress has the most adorable details. Just add a silk bomber for some edge and for cooler nights out too. ūüėČ

I got the opportunity to do makeup for these gorgeous women with such sweet souls. Simplicity and accentuating the features of everyone’s unique beauty is so important to me. A natural look was created for these two ladies. I focused on creating healthy glowy skin using creams and highlighters. Textured unperfected brows have been my muse lately. I used a brow power and brushed them upward using my favourite tinted brow gel. Try texturizing your brows for a fresh spring makeup look. It’s so fun!

More flowers please and thank you!

You can’t go wrong with floral and denim! xoxo

Hello Miss Sunshine. This yellow sings spring, spring, spring doesn’t it?

Hope you have the loveliest day and enjoy the beautiful weather. Get out there and soak in the sun. Good bye winter. See you next year. But as for you, chat again soon! XXXX

Beach Hunting

The sun is shining, but what’s missing?

We can’t help but still notice the frigid air that keeps following us day in and day out. The tingle in our fingers and toes is still present. Our throats are clenching with every breath. We are quivering and we don’t like it! So what do we do?

Do we torture ourselves with pictures of vacations past? Search “Beaches”¬† and get lost for hours in where we wish we could be and would be if we owned a magical wand.

Now, what to pack, here are a few of our vacation outfit staples.¬† We like to start with a¬†kimono¬†, it’s great for any trip,not just to cover up after a swim, but it can be used to layer over shorts and a tank when its a cloudy day, or thrown on top of a little black dress to add some bohemian vibes.¬† They come in all colors and lengths, we prefer the longer ones.

Some fun earrings like these big tassels for the beach, but they are not ideal for swimming, so  pack some simpler ones for the water and pop  the tassels in when your done swimming.

The biggest sunglasses you can find, the bigger the better, not only do they protect you from the suns damaging rays,but they also look amazing. And lastly a lace dress that can be dressed up or thrown into a beach bag, this one looks so glamorous but its a romper with comfortable shorts that hold the deep-v into place.

Eclectic BFF’s

These two blondes are the best partners on the court, and best friends in real life! Our models Effie and Keely are embracing the most eclectic styles of the season; mesh, wild patterns, plush fur, vibrant hues, and those over sized shades that you need to get your hands on no matter what!

Our girls show off the Kimono two different ways; dressy or causal. We notice lots of girls are confused with just how to wear the kimono, but it really has no boundaries! As you can see both of our Blondie’s are rocking it. Keely is keeping it formal with a vibrant yellow dress and heels, paired with a contrasting purple Kimono makes for a stunning look. Effie’s going for a more sporty look with some easy sneakers, leggings, and that ever so trendy mesh look on top. These girls have opposite styles but they both look oh so good!

A cute behind the scene pic! We were so excited to do this shoot and were smiling the whole time. We fully embraced the fall season in this shoot and loved the results it brought us!

Our girls showing off their favorite layering techniques yet again! Don’t be afraid to pile gorgeous clothes on yourself this season…not only does it look so cute but it’ll keep you extra warm when your feeling chilly.

 

We had so much fun with this shoot. Wild patterns and colors made for many giggles and amazing looks for these real life BFF’s. We love when people embrace bold looks like our girls did! Never be to shy or think you cant pull it off, because we are guaranteed you’ll look amazing. If you need any help or have any doubts, make your way into Tonic and some of our incredible employees will help you pull together the perfect eclectic look for your wardrobe.

Fall Feels

Fall swiftly takes over summer and we need to slow down and get used to cozy nights in and enjoy simple moments.  The sky gets darker early and the chill sets in reminding us to layer.  This season we chose to ease into the layers with luxurious lace dresses, and bodysuits and top them off with satin kimonos and extra soft sweaters.  


We love to see sheer dresses over pants and the way they move in the wind.


We keep sweet smelling candles glowing in the store and moved all our favourite plants inside to keep our space fresh and green as we prep for a long winter.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe For Saskatoon

This lace dress needs to be in your closet, so easy to wear and makes a statement every time.  If you need it for a wedding just add a lace tank and tights.

Floppy hats are good for bad hair days, which are a constant with our windy fall days in Saskatoon.

Every great black outfit needs a pop of colour.  We love these little floral clutches, just big enough for your cell phone and lipgloss.

We have this thing for kimonos, the way they move and add personality to every simple outfit.  This lace one is so delicate, but we also love kimonos with prints and patterns like this one.

Just in case it snows we suggest a leopard coat, it’s the perfect shape for over a dress or pants and the color goes with everything.

Kimonos: The Ultimate Summer to Fall Transition Piece

The Kimono is ultimately a flawless way to upgrade your wardrobe from summer to fall; its the perfect transition piece. Kimonos are a trend that are taking the world by storm, and they are an essential piece that you should immediately add to your wardrobe. Kimonos effortlessly add glamour to any look. As shown, they can be worn casually with a pair of sneakers and leggings or with a dress to add even more femininity and sweetness. The Kimono gives power to women; they can throw it over any look and immediately feel effortlessly beautiful and stylish without worry.

Fall is the time to exchange your pastels for the rich colors of fall and to layer up your wardrobe, all of which the kimono masters with ease. We love this mustard yellow color because it expresses hues of joy and sunshine even on cool and cloudy fall days.  In fall, its easy to fall into dreary colors, but wearing color maintains spunk and passion. This mustard yellow adds a punch of color, but is also versatile and chic.

 

We love this Kimono in particular, because the intricate lace and striking color make it an absolutely beautiful statement piece. It is so effortlessly elegant and feminine, and adds a chic overlay to any look. This Kimono is also more suited to fall with its gorgeous rich color and long sleeve design. It is sheer, beautiful, and elegant and an essential piece for your fall wardrobe. Check out this beautiful Kimono and many others here .
