Walking on Sunshine

Ahhhh . . . Summer is here! Something about this season makes me invigorated and ready to renovate my wardrobe. While my favourite season is Fall, and I love the layering and accessory opportunities that come with it, there’s nothing better than throwing on a flowy dress and soaking up the warm sun.

We’ve got something for everyone – whether you define your Summer style as easy-breezy, edgy, or flirty n’ flowy.

Boho

These pieces are for all you boho babes who love a carefree, relaxed aesthetic (Summer looks good on you gals) . . . may I suggest throwing on a flowy and floral kimono (Insider’s Tip: PSEUDIO – STAT!) if you wanted to add some layers?

Classic

If you love simple, chic, clean pieces . . . you’re a classic gal. These wide-cut, flowy pants are made with linen and pair perfectly with a crop top, meaning they should definitely be in your Summer wardrobe, ready for all of the upcoming hot and sunny days. And how adorable is this jute beach bag?! The tassels give a darling pop of colour for the ultimate flair. This outfit screams breezy brunch on the beach. Now, all you need is some SPF and a chilled glass of bubbly.

Minimalist

As Don Draper, my favourite style icon from Mad Men once said: “Make it simple but significant.” Apply that mantra to your wardrobe, and you’ll realize . . . maybe he was on to something. I love simple, neutral blazers, trousers, and of course, heeled mules for an easy slide-on shoe in the summer during errands or at the office. These mules also come in white for the brave and ultra-chic.

Preppy

Play date in the park? Grabbing lunch to-go from Sunterra Market to enjoy the sunshine? This dress would be adorable on its own with a belt to create some shape. Or, layer it with a denim jacket and a chic scarf to elevate it.

I have been living in my mid-thigh Levi’s so far this Spring, and they’ll continue to make a star appearance well into the Summer. They’re not too short, but not too long – the Goldilocks of denim shorts. Pair ‘em with a band tee for a casual look or a tucked-in, sheer blouse. And as the weather cools down when Fall approaches, be sure to check out Boutique of Leathers/Open Road for their selection of biker jackets – a definite edgy girl must. Not feeling heavy combat boots for the Summer? Don’t sweat it (literally) because Journeys has Dr. Martens sandals, too. And yes. They’re platform.
