Saskatoon: Face the weather in sporty style

If there were some sort award for roller coaster weather, Saskatoon would definitely be in the running.  With the weather dipping down to minus 46 and then climbing the Celsius chart to a whopping plus five in a mere 48 hours, people are examining their closets and contemplating what to wear.  Spring shopping has many of us keeping our hopes up that the warmer months won’t pass us by.

While shopping for a new spring jacket, I happened upon the North Face Venture jacket (shown, $120) at Outter Limits (630 Broadway Ave., 306-374-1663, outterlimits.com).  I was eyeing the daffodil yellow and alba green versions, but I eventually decided on classic black.  It’s not glamorous evening apparel, but it’s really functional. (Anyone who has one will swear by it.)  It’s perfect for a hike, camping trip or being caught in the rain—weekends at the lake can’t come soon enough! I’m ready for when spring decides to show up.
