Summer vacation is in full-force.
Don’t leave home (or the country) without these essentials…
You love your One for One Toms Shoes; they’re comfortable, simple and go with pretty much anything. Not to mention, they go for a wallet-friendly price that won’t break the bank. The brand recently got even better with the introduction of a line of equally stylish sunglasses. The selection ranges from sporty, to classic, to diva, and anywhere in between. Personally, we’re fans of the Maverick in gold. The versatility and price make them essential for any getaway.
Dear Frankie swimwear
You’ve got your sunnies, beach towel and tote, but what about a high quality, simple and sexy bathing suit made right here in our own backyard? Dear Frankie is a line designed by Edmonton born Alicia Martin, who studied fashion design at Ryerson in Toronto. Her pieces are loungewear-inspired, and each bathing suit remains feminine yet flirty, sexy yet practical, and ready for that pool or beach day ahead. To make things better, each piece has a focus on layers, giving us ladies a nice variety (especially when it comes to those problem areas). And because the clothing is all made from eco-friendly clothing, you’ll feel less guilty about purchasing yet another bikini this summer.
Jonathan Adler passport case and luggage tags.
Since all passports look the same on the outside, set yours apart with a very bold, impossible-to-miss passport case from Jonathan Adler. The bright, fun passport cases make it difficult to lose your passport in a cluttered hotel room. Thanks to the colourful luggage tags, there will be no mistaking your luggage at the baggage claim either. Expect compliments from fellow travellers and even customs workers alike.
Ebby Rane Quartermaster
Ebby Rane brings style back to travel while still keeping it functional. You almost want to book a trip just as an excuse to buy a piece, like the signature The Quartermaster – luxury leather-trimmed luggage with 11 coordinated travel accessories, the 1887 Clutch. The complete carry-on has everything you need, with things like a laundry bag, tech case, knickers bag (right?), vanity case, liquids case, jewels case, dust cover, shoe sleeves, cosmetic case, and the 1887 Clutch. All fit neatly into the suitcase, which is available in a range of colours. It isn’t cheap, but, like your favourite designer purse, it will last.
Now all you have to do is book that flight.
