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.
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!

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 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.
