One of my favourite things about summer is the extended hours of daylight. During this month Vancouver has been having over 15 hours of sunlight each day; It’s a true luxury to be able to take post-dinner walk without having to throw on an extra jacket. This was not the case when I grew up in the Canadian prairies, since the temperature would easily drop below 10 degrees on summer nights. I believe that weather has a big impact of people’s moods, and other than the heavy showers that happen occasionally in Vancouver, I’m pretty pleased with my city’s climate!
Classic Trainer shoes are the biggest and most noticeable trend of this summer. Since I have asthma and am thus not very athletic, I actually haven’t purchased athletic footwear in a long time. But, the colourful retro designs of New Balance Classics changed my mind. I bought this pair of 565’s a couple weeks ago and have been wearing them a lot! They are super comfortable and its bright colour combination is just perfect for summer night walks. I’ve also tested these guys out at spin class and they are superb. Sure hope this trend sticks around!
