I’m currently in Vancouver, having a mini holiday before I start my real life, i.e. I become a working girl. I used to live in Whistler back in the day, and now my cousin who I lived with lives in Van. I’ve forgotten how much I miss the mountains, and I’ve never really realized how different Van and Toronto are style wise. Hello Lululemon and running shoes, kind of an odd sighting since no one in Queen West would be caught dead wearing running shoes unless they just left the gym. Here are some pictures from yesterday in Kitsilano.

As Olympic fanatic as I am, the only merch I owned up until this afternoon was a pair of the famous red mittens. But after receiving the above email in my inbox, I knew I should take one last look at what Aritzia had to offer. Glad I did. There was a lot of selection and the markdowns were decent. In the end, I purchased the above for a little over the same price as one of the hoodies from the Bay.
While there is no denying that the Bay did a wonderful job on the merchandise this year, something has to be said for the versatile and understated looks that Park Life produced. While I would hesitate to wear a hoody with a giant “Canada” applique across the chest after the Olympics, I would have no qualms about wearing any of these three pieces after the Olympics.
I am now officially ready for gold medal curling and hockey. Go Canada, Go!
