Downtown Betty's collective brands include: Bicycle by Downtown Betty a natural fibre clothing line designed with real life in mind, it is a casual glamour that truly feels as good as naked, Downtown Betty Originals silk screened bags & home accessories for the coolest things in your life, and Bicycle R.e.c.l.a.i.m.e.d. unique fabric finds/pieces created along the way, that work well with the life on the bicycle path, quickly all becoming favourites. Further down the path we fell in love with Get Em Onsheepskin boots that make for cozy Sundays, surf trips & play time at the cabin ~ a perfect match for Downtown Betty!
Just recently the Downtown Betty babes took a golden trip to the Prairie Love Festival in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and well... we fell in Love with the Prairies... the forever skies, the big open fields, all the beautiful souls.
We all know it's inevitable that the seasons are going to change, and if you're anything Downtown Betty you're left feeling blue about leaving Summer behind. It just dawned on us that consumer life & 'back-to-school' rush makes us skip over one of the the juiciest, parts of Summer ~ where the Sun is just as ripe as August, but days are beginning to get shorter, so there's a bit of a crispness in the air as evening comes. We've decided it deserves to be honoured in a different way...
We were lucky enough to meet the lovely Ms Marisa Cline from Peg City Yoga & capture her in her Dhoti Onesie & Bandeau, perfect for catching that last the rays of Summer sun, soaking up that Vitamin D, throwing on your favourite cardigan, if it get's chilly, as it transitions into Fall...
Inspired by the golden fields of wheat, low lying shrubs with subtle earthy hues, and the forever blue skies with puffy clouds, this Thunder Cloud & Fawn colour combo perfectly reflected our Prairie Love surroundings of Birds Hill National Park.
We know dressing for this transitional season can be tough, (mainly because of the letting go of Summer part) but here are some #OOTD ideas from Downtown Betty to capture the Sun while it's still here. Start with a stylish, minimal base & be able to layer up quickly when it goes!
We would also like to thank all of the Prairie Love Festival Folks who bought DOGGESS Tanks & Caps. With our DOGGESS sales, we raised a total of $155 that we sent directly to our Acitve Dog Rescue Community in Batu Bolong Beach in Canggu, Bali.
