“This month I’m excited about the opportunity to shop for a good cause at The Sunshine Box Pop-Up Shop that’s launching at Peace Collective’s Flagship Store on Ossington from July 12th to 14th. Created by Jamieson Vitamins in support of the Canadian Cancer Society, the pop-up will be stocked with goodies to help you enjoy summer to the max, while still staying safe in the sun. You can expect to shop items like Jamieson x Peace Collective tee, David’s Tea beverages, Marsquest sunglasses, summer-inspired earrings from Tocara jewelry, Woodlot

“Clothing that doubles as pajamas (or pajamas that double as clothing?) Either way, I’m sold. Sleeper is truly the nightwear of my dreams. I wish I could live in these flowy, summery dresses for the my entire life. I’m thinking I need to stock up for the summer, especially for those days when it’s way to hot to be wearing anything at all. My favourite is the Flower Loungewear Dress (but I’m also dying over the Black Pajama Set “Black Tie”).” – @JordanaColomby

“When it comes to athletic wear, basic black is kind of well just that, basic. This is why we’re kind of obsessed with MICHI. Founded by Michelle Watson, a former designer at Kate Spade and RLX Ralph Lauren, the brand offers sleek silhouettes, mesh insets, color-blocking, eco-friendly fabrics, and quick-dry performance. It’s no wonder that SPINCO recently announced they were going to be offering MICHI gear in the studio so that riders could get their hands on the latest pieces ASAP. We recently copped a pair of full-length leggings from the summer collection and we can’t wait to keep adding more.” – @AmaScriver

“I might not be getting married anytime soon but that doesn’t mean I don’t occasionally add to my secret Pinterest board. One of Pinterest’s and my most pinned dresses is by the boutique Australian brand Grace Loves Lace. Their silhouettes are gorgeous but what I love is that so many of their pieces are stretch fit, breathable and made without zippers, boning, corsets and heavy material I.e made for the brides who wants to be comfy AF. They range from $800-$4,000 which obviously isn’t cheap but certainly better than what most spend at Kleinfeld!” – @SarahDzdzc

“Everyone’s fave Canadian heritage brand Hudson’s Bay has partnered with the ultimate summer brand Sunnylife, to create a new collab that features chic dog leashes, beach bags, pool floats, and more! Kick off the collab by stopping by #StripeSpotting pop-up that’s making its way across Toronto, Prince Edward County, Wasaga Beach, and Niagara-On-The-Lake to enjoy bocce ball, colouring and bubbles for the kids, and lots of Instagrammable moments!” – @BlairAlex

“Recently I attended an event run by Vans that gave me some serious summer vibes wrapped in a (somewhat messy) nostalgia bow. For the first time in about 20 years, I tie-dyed. And it was great. It was fun (the addition of beer definitely helped), it was creative and it got me excited to be crafty on my own time. Which is great news considering tie dye is very in this season. You’ll find me prepping for my own tie-dye afternoon in my backyard so I can perfect the trend. All I’ll need to pick up is a few white t-shirts (I loved the comfy men’s ones we used at the Vans event), some Rit Dye from Michael’s (I’m excited to get crafty with greens, reds and blues) and a bit of space to do my thing. Beer, though optional, will definitely contribute to the summer vibes.” – @AlxDonaldson

“I’m completely obsessed with my new Nike VaporMax. They are absolutely perfect for looking cute and relevant while I’m running around chasing my toddler and doing general “mom-ing” stuff. You can grab them at the Nike Nordstrom boutique. I can’t walk past that place without buying a new pair of kicks.” – @Mondays_Child_
