5 Outfits for Your (Local) Spring Getaway
Spring has a way of bringing about fresh styles and new beginnings. This season, focus on that getaway you put on pause last year and take time off for yourself with these new outfits.
You need to take a break. In an article by the Washington Post, Clinical psychologist Jessica de Bloom says, "The key to vacationing is mental disengagement from work for a prolonged period to have beneficial recovery experiences.” Even a weekend of fun and relaxation locally can work wonders reducing stress, boosting your mood, and making you more productive at work!
A crucial part of getaways are the photos you can capture wearing those top outfits you chose to bring. It’s a big part of pre-planning a trip, and a part you don’t have to miss. When each day is a new adventure, you have to ask, what do I wear?
You deserve a break, even if it’s a local weekend getaway - and we’ve got the 5 looks to get you prepared!
1. Go to a Local Park for a Picnic
When you’re in the middle of the city (like we are at the shop), it’s hard to remember that parks are a great way to escape the hustle and bustle!
Nearby, there’s Stanley Park, Kitsilano Beach, and tons of other beautiful places to enjoy your lunch. With all the takeaway options now, it’s easy to get your favourite foods on the go for an impromptu picnic.
We were so inspired by this picnic photo, with the flowy sleeves of the dress, fun pattern and inspired colours of peaches. Our Navy Floral Romper lets you enjoy the playful side to picnics while still being comfortable and chic.
Feeling comfortable on your getaway is just as important as feeling gorgeous.
2. Go Shopping and Support Local!
Tourism Vancouver, in their 7 Ways to Enjoy Spring in Vancouver, highlighted the beautiful and unique fashion available in Gastown. Now, we’re also located here in Gastown and understand the need to stand out while roaming the city!
We had to build an outfit just for finding new looks. The versatility you get with the Wide Leg Linen Pant allows you to mix and match different tops, jackets, and accessories, while still getting around the city in style.
Haven’t gotten your go-to Spring shopping outfit yet? If you’re in Gastown, visit our location at 452 West Cordova, Vancouver, BC, we’re open Monday-Sunday 11:00 am - 7:00 pm!
3. Visit the Local Gardens
Join the cherry blossoms this Spring with this flowy and fresh muted green dress. With Spring blooming all along the West coast, it’s a great time to be in the city without having it feel like the city. Check out Queen Elizabeth Park to flaunt the Short Sleeve Surplice Dress and be amongst the colourful flowers.
Visiting the gardens certainly gives us that itch to grab new floral patterns for our wardrobe, too! Be sure to check out our Navy Floral Romper for your garden getaway – it’s a great way to take the spring flowers with you!
Floral inspired colours are everything this Spring, so be sure to include it in your getaway wardrobe.
4. Picture Perfect on the Patio
Patio season has arrived, and so has this new arrival! We recommend your Spring outfits include pieces with lilac as it’s a staple colour for the season. Get this Pleated Flirty Skirt to complete your outfit of the day and include this must-have colour.
Flaunt your new look and soak up the sun with some fabulous drinks in Gastown - we recommend the Water St. Cafe across from the Gastown Steam Clock.
5. Tour the neighbourhood on a bicycle
Bike rentals aren’t just for commuters, trails, and exercise. Tour downtown Vancouver and visit the eclectic shops all on a rental bike. Spokes is a great place to grab some comfortable and cute bikes for the day.
For a more active day trip, our Hamptons Striped Jumpsuit lets you be playful in pinstripes. Pair with a cardigan or duster for sunnier days and you’ve got a sightseeing adventure without sacrificing style!
