The summer has finally arrived here in Canada, and I could not be more excited about it. Wearing shorts and hitting up the beach every weekend are what my dreams are made of, so when those precious few months roll around each year, you can bet I’m ecstatic. And one of my favourite parts of summer is scouting out the latest trends and of course, trying them out. So I’ve collected my top seven summer wish list items to share with you guys. What are you looking forward to buying this summer?  

  1. This dusty rose poncho from H&M is totally cute. I love it because it adds a bit to your outfit, without being too warm. There’s nothing worse than trying to layer in the summer, only to end up drenched in sweat - and this is the perfect solution.
  2. Mineralize blush in Love Thing from MAC is a perfect subtle summer shade. It adds a warm glow to your skin without being too bright or bold.
  3. This embroidered lace playsuit from H&M is a great summer find. Like the poncho, it holds that perfect balance between formal and comfortable - great for a summer night out.
  4. My biggest summer essential ever is sunscreen. This sunscreen from SuperGoop is formulated without parabens or sulfates, so it’s safe for your skin, and protects you from the sun!
  5. Of course a summer must have is the perfect bikini - and I’m obsessed with this Triangl one in the style Milly.  
  6. A cute, portable purse is perfect for a long summer day, and I’ve been coveting this mini textured-leather shoulder bag from ChloĆ©.
  7. MAC just released it’s latest design collab with Giambattista Valli - and I am in love with all of these shades. I want every single one (but unfortunately that’s not going to happen) so maybe I’ll have to settle for picking up the bright hot pink hue called “Tats.”
