Travel & Lifestyle | Getting ready to #LoveMyHood and love myself this spring

As March comes to an end, the air seems to be getting warmer and (fingers crossed) that means that spring is around the corner. After what has been a confusing winter, I am ready to shed the winter wardrobe for something more energetic. Atheletica is a great fit for someone like me who has a renewed sense of self, fitness goals in mind, but who also wants to express myself and my personality. Bench Canada has an amazing SS16 lineup of items that I can’t wait to get my hands and I’m excited to share a few of my favourites with you all!

I think what I love most about Bench is that their inspiration always comes from city life around the world. SS16 draws inspiration from Barcelona, which is actually one of my favourite cities. I think of warm weather, romance, an indescribably freedom, passion and the ability to find beauty at every turn. “Barcelona’s rich culture and diversity complimented the effortless yet stylish inspiration of this upcoming collection.”

The latest items from one of our favourite brands truly encapsulates what clothing and style should be – an extension of who I am. Spring is rebirth, and a fresh chance at life in the most beautiful of ways. Why not reflect that sentiment in your clothing?

“The bright pastels and warm neutrals of the spring pieces are contrasted with coral pops and jet-blacks in the summer collection. Fabrics are refracted and imperfect, with key prints of splattered watercolors and earthy surfaces.”








These are just a few of my favourite items, and you can find the full collection available on and at your nearest Bench Canada Store. I have no doubt in my mind that you’ll be seeing a lot more Bench looks in our social media, because after all, I want to show the world who I am while I #LoveMyHood.
