Summer is upon us, and with it comes a rush of nostalgia for seasons past. Although the summers I have lived through wouldn’t quite qualify as “vintage”, the idealization of what had happened – rather than happening – incites a sense of longing and romanticism for what may have been an ultimately mundane three months. However, lack of first hand experience doesn’t mean we can’t dress as though it is the height of the 1950s and Frank Sinatra is on repetition on our car radio.
The month of June can be an exciting time of year for various different reasons. Not only does June mark the end of school and the beginning of summer, it can also be a month filled with many different celebrations such as Fathers Day and graduations. With such a busy and exciting month ahead of us, we thought we would put together a series of different outfits perfect for any activities or occasions you may find yourself in need of a new look for!
Hey Hunnis! One of our favourite things to do in store is to listen to new music and create new playlists and we thought we would share what we’re currently listening to with you. As summer approaches we’ve been loving everything fun and upbeat, so here’s some songs perfect for a sunny day:
A Guide To Wedding Season
The season of weddings is upon us, and those of you who have received one or possibly multiple invitations to a wedding this summer may be starting to feel a bit of the stress that comes with being a guest. Weddings are typically events that come with great expectations, making each and every little detail of the big day very important. Including everything from what to wear to what to give, we’ve put together a brief guide to help you survive this wedding season.
This one is to all the mothers out there. The ones who carried us in their wombs, and the ones who didn’t but love us like they did. The ones who wiped our tears, and the ones who cleaned our scrapes and bruises. The ones who cheered us on from the sidelines, and the ones who led the carpool to soccer practice. The ones who disciplined us in love, and the ones who pushed us to be our best. I see you, moms, shopping in our store. We see your love for us even in that simple task. The way you cajole your teary child in the fitting room, or the way you hold your little one’s hand as you wander around the store. I hear your love when you call over to the toy area to check in on your child, who plays happily while you shop. Your love for your children is tangible, even in those small ways.
A timeless pattern I have mentioned time and time again is stripes. It is ageless, versatile, and not committed to any one season. The popularization of this alternating pattern is routed in nautical fashion, which was originally sported by sailors. Although we have previously associated stripes with floating out at sea and the maritime, stripes have become so normalized that we no longer need associate such patterns with the open ocean. For this post, I’ve attempted to show you a couple ways you can maintain the nautical influence while modernizing this style to fit the streets!

Including everything from prints to different styles, keep reading to learn about a few easy pieces you can add into your wardrobe to be on trend this spring!
Aside from the obvious reasons for attending a music festival this summer, such as seeing your favourite artists perform live or spending the weekend dancing beneath the sunshine, one our favourite parts of festival season is of course, the outfits and style. In the world of music festivals, anything goes when it comes to fashion. This can be quite a daunting thought for many, but don’t worry Hunnis, that’s why we’re here! Every April festival season is kicked off at one of the world’s most popular and widely celebrated music festivals, Coachella. With weekend one behind us and weekend two only a few more days away, we thought it would be the perfect time to compile a guide on everything you need to know about this upcoming festival season.
It’s no secret that we love a cute cafe, and lucky enough for us there’s certainly no shortage of new places for us to try here in Vancouver. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to catch up with friends, a quiet place to work and study (or to pretend to work and study, as we all occasionally find ourselves doing), or just want a quality cup of coffee, these cafes are some you definitely won’t want to miss.
We tend to fall into the trap of basics, focusing on the simple and recombinable, rather than the statement. Our gravitation to items that are easy to throw on, are not made without merit, they timeless and neutral, leaving little doubt for its wear-ability. However, we’ve all had those moments when we find an outrageous or slightly out of our comfort zone piece that is that encourages a similar gravitation, but we pass on it thinking we could never style it. This is why I’ve decided show you a few ways that you can.
