“You can’t buy happiness, but you can live in Canada & that’s pretty much the same thing”
Last week I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Roots Canada #ShareTheWarmth Event in support of Heart & Stroke & to preview their 2018 Spring Collection. I honestly have ZERO idea what I did to deserve an invite to this amazing & ultra exclusive media event but I am certainly NOT MAD AT IT! I can honestly say that I really loved the whole vibe that Roots is going for this upcoming season – it had a very Yeezy, Vintage feel which I think is very “of the now“, yet Roots simultaneously still managed to make this trend their own! It most definitely still felt VERY quintessentially “Roots” to me which I think is incredibly important for any brand to maintain in a sea of mega clothing lines! Below are a few snaps of some of my favourite pieces from the event that I NEED in my closet… like YESTERDAY!
Sneak Peek at Roots Canada’s 2018 Spring Collection
Okay so before we get into the actual clothes themselves… can we just take a moment to discuss how CUTE this setup is?! I think I’ve already made it abundantly clear on here that I am pretty much OBSESSED with all things winter so it should come as no surprise that I was seriously crushing on THIS particular little situation. Before previewing the clothing, Roots had setup up a whole afternoon of skating to promote Heart Health & EVEN had Olympic Figure Skaters perform a two minute routine for everyone – which I missed due to work commitments – obviously, I was devastated.
Apres skating we were all invited for drinks (pass the red vino please) & for a quick preview of their upcoming Spring Collection!
Very Vintage. Very Yeezy. Very Into It.
Roots Canada is all about the layers this 2018! They’re updating their signature pieces in a major way; giving them a very “current” overhaul. I am particularly living for the tapered sweat pants. My mom got me a pair of these insanely comfortable tapered, burgundy sweats from Roots for Christmas last year & I can barely muster up the strength to take them off – like ever – so I was super excited to see that they are incorporating them into this line in such a big way for Spring 2018.
Also – I can’t with the Red & White Sport Jacket! This colour pop is on a whole other level & is bringing the nostalgia factor in the best way possible!
Uhm… I will absolutely be needing one of these in every single colour please & thank-you! I love a good ol’ slouchy purse & these colours are delivering in a major way! The light, almost olive green is just absolute perfection. Not to mention, purses with structured, clean lines is just very NOT me so I was tickled pink to see these babies. I am already envisioning about a hundred outfits to incorporate these gorgeous purses into. Drool!!!!
Okay so THIS brings me to the most important part of the Roots Canada 2018 Spring Preview. As of February 1st, Roots released these adorable limited edition garments & a part of the proceeds will be going directly to Heart & Stroke. If you ARE interested in purchasing these… click HERE!
Okay – what are your thoughts? Are you loving this collection?
