Taking you away somewhere warm... for a moment.

Traveling Somewhere Warm. Ethically made in Canada with sustainable and eco friendly materials.

I recently returned from a surf trip to the Dominican Republic 

6 days in warm weather, and twice daily surfing was a much-needed reprieve from the snow filled days in Toronto.

While there, I was able to conjure up the courage to do a photoshoot in my Chrysalis Cardi.

I wanted to show everything that our brand is about - versatility, travel, connection with nature and being yourself.

In case it's not obvious, I'm not a model!

This photoshoot was shot by talented surfer and photographer, Adan de Miguel near Encuentro Beach in Cabarete, Dominican. The shoot took place on a rainy morning at around 7am. No make-up was worn, and hair was not done. Natural, and beachy!

I hope you enjoy our casual, surf style beach photoshoot of the Chrysalis Cardi styled as a one-shoulder dress and tunic.
