shady. Coat your world pretty in these metal-framed Havana sunnies ($175) by Michael Kors. With 100 per cent UV protection, you’ll be ready for that coveted orb when it decides to show up.
sisterly love. The Blonde and Brunette editions (not to mention, Rosé Okay) are Vancouverite staples, and now Brunette the Label is treating us to another cosy crew! Available in stores and online at the end of May, the Beach Babe Middle Sister ($84) is slightly wider in the body and features a cute cropped finish. Photo by Britney Gill Photography.
rub-a-dub-dub. Lather up with Le Petit Marseillais' Lavender Honey Extra Gentle Body Wash, ($7.99 at at food, drug and mass merchandisers nationwide), formulated from ingredients harvested on the Alpes de Haute Provence. France’s fave body wash also just released two new scents—Mandarin & Lime and Apricot & Hazelnut—to which we say, oui!
of a feather. These adorable Kotare Heather limited-edition runners ($135) by Allbirds are made from ethically sourced merino wool that the company mills into its own temp-regulating, water-repelling material. Newly launched in Canada, the ultra-sustainable footwear brand is definitely ruling our roost.
hello moto. Handcrafted from vintage leather in our home and native land, the Roots Moto Jacket Tribe ($788) is the ultimate everyday spring jacket. This stylish and staple-worthy piece is detailed with practical zipper pockets, belting and silver hardware.
nailed it. CND’s just-released Chic Shock collection delights with a rainbow of pastel shades including the perfectly purple Gummi polish. Available in seven-day wear Vinylux or chip-reducing Shellac.
carrying on. Formed from pebbled leather, this classically sleek Michael Kors Mercer bag ($288) can be worn as a crossbody or carried by handle. Incorporate fun features such as a key chain, charm or additional bag strap.
