Caught Andrew at the SPAO open house 5th anniversary celebration event on Friday. What I loved most about his outfit was that it was simple and well put together – Fred Perry shirt, WeSC jeans, no idea where the shoes are from but they are my favourite part of the outfit.

Sisters Marcia and Gabbie – their sisterness was evident, I had to snap it. Oh and also because Marcia has a ridiculously cool Canon from the 1970s which belonged to her maman. Check out Marcia’s blog.
You can never go wrong with these classic dress shoes from Zara.
I’ve been in town for a couple of weeks now and a friend had mentioned that, while I’m here, I should revive the blog in the meantime and look for dedicated contributors – despite the fact that since I’ve been away in Toronto, many more fashion and street style blogs from the city have spurred up on the internets. I’m confident Ottawa Street Style will find some good contributors – if you’re interested, make sure to send an email to ottawastreet [at] gmail [dot] com.
Spencer – what can I say…I love how he’s pulled off this entire outfit.
The great people over at ellecanada.com featured Street fashion blogs in Canada and Ottawa Street Style happened to be one of them! Check out the article here

Spring is here! (Okay, kind of.) People are wearing less! (Or at the very least, leaving the black, knee-length, puffy parka at home.) This makes me hopeful, kind of like the season. Out and about on Saturday night, I ran into the ultra-cool Bob and Emily in the Market who were as lovely to talk to as they looked. A little later in the evening, Michael pranced into the Mercury Lounge in an eye-catching orange plaid cape. He had lots of interesting things to share and well, who doesn’t want to talk to a guy in cape?
