Poppy Barley Weekly 40

4-minute read

Poppy Barley Weekly 40 - Justine Barber This PB Weekly is being written 10,000 feet in the sky onboard a flight to Phoenix (isn’t wifi on flights incredible!). I’m escaping for a 4-day weekend getaway to run a half-marathon, hike, eat and enjoy some Arizona sunshine (and rain!). February had lots of long days and late nights, so my brain is craving a break. Last weekend, Justine and I headed to the countryside for a stay at The Crossing at Ghost River. The retreat was the kickoff to Alberta Women Entrepreneurs Excelerator program. Surrounded by trailblazing women, we focused on personal leadership and vision/goals for our companies. In a room full of women, our conversations combined heart, brains, honesty and boldness. Justine and I are doing lots of big thinking; some exciting changes are coming to Poppy Barley. As always – thank you for being part of the journey – we can’t wait to share! Poppy Barley Showroom - Edmonton What's Happening this Week

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
