Last Summer Fling Thing

Posted on Aug 24, 2017

Hauser Coastal Collection

OUTdoor furniture

Sarah's pick:

Nothing says summer bliss like chilling in a cushy lounge chair. I'm always a fan of updated classics and Hauser's Coastal Collection is a sleek and sculptural (and super comfortable) twist on old world wicker. Grab your hat, shades, a good book and a cool drink and soak up the best that summer has to offer before it's gone.

Buy: Hauser

SUMMER READ: What Remains

Sarah's pick:

My very first job in the design world was working for Karen Von Hahn in my early twenties and she taught me a lot about what it meant to be an independent, smart, talented woman running her own business as both a designer and a writer. I'm hoping to dive into her personal memoir during some lazy last days on holiday!

Buy: $24.95, Amazon

What Remains by Karen Von Hahn
Avril Loreti Dinner Plates, Canadian Tire Canvas Collection

Dinner Plate

Sarah's pick:

There's no time like the end of summer to savour a few last chances to dine al fresco. As a pattern loving girl, I think these modern melamine plates from Canadian Tire's Canvas collection are awesome for happy days in the sunshine.

Buy: $4.99 each, Canadian Tire

Zipper Tote

Kate's pick:

Saw these in Florida and loved them! I am forever on the hunt for the perfect beach bag and think I have finally found it! I got a pouch as well to keep my cosmetics and phone sand free. Now... which way to the beach?

Buy: $54, Aloha

Byron Bay Zipper Tote by Aloha

Topiaries

Lindsay Men Craig's pick:

This Labour Day weekend, I'm hosting a party and need to tweak the yard. Lucky for you (and me!) most nurseries have great end of season sales, so I'm about to head out to pick up a great pair of topiaries for the urns on my front porch. Love this inspiration from Molly Wood Garden Design. Crisp, clean and lush!

Buy: Sheridan Nurseries

Canteen BOTTLE

Tiffany's pick:

I love the Corkcicle 25 oz beverage bottle from Indigo. Keeps your drink cool for 25 hours or hot for 12! Plus you can fill it with an entire bottle of wine. What's more summery than chilled rosé shared among friends? It's perfect for a picnic on a hot day, because you can keep your beverage cool without having to lug around a bulky cooler with ice.

Buy: $42.50, Indigo

 

Corkcicle Canteen
Willow & Clay Embroidered Cotton Minidress

Embroidered Minidress

Kelsey's pick:

This Willow & Clay dress screams fun! And.... hello embroidery! Not only is this little number super cute for the last days of summer, if you pair it with an army style jacket and chic boots it will transition beautifully into the fall! 

Buy: $53.40, Nordstrom

 

Basket Bag

Jennifer's pick:

Basket bags are all the rage this season, and you can bet I’ll be adding this one to my collection. I plan on toting this beauty with me on as many road trips as I can fit into the last days of summer.

Buy: $84, Ellenn James

Beth Richards Knot Top

Bikini Top

Allison's pick:

This bikini top by Beth Richards has been my favourite summer accessory! It's comfortable, flattering and the cute little knot in the front makes you feel like you just came straight out of Flash Dance. Weather permitting, this is all I plan on wearing for every last second of summer.

Buy: $130, 6 by Gee Beauty

 

Platter

Natalie's pick:

My family and I are headed to Georgian Bay for the last week of August. Staying in an ‘off the grid’ rustic cottage means cooking simple, fresh meals and barbecues. Just because you're roughing it, doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish and set a nice table; I love the President's Choice line of Serveware. It's sculptural, chic and inexpensive!

Buy: $16.49, Loblaws

President's Choice Oval Platter
Tofino Towel Company

Round Towel

Lindsey's pick:

My family and I will be spending the last week of the summer soaking up the sun and sand in Muskoka. With two small children, we spend a lot of time playing at the beach. I love these round towels from the Tofino Towel Company. A cross between a beach towel and a picnic blanket, these round cotton terry towels are the perfect shape and size so there is a spot for everyone!

Buy: $99.99, Tofino Towel Company

Dinner Plates

Rachael's pick:

One of my favourite ways to enjoy these Canadian summer months is by dining al fresco, catching the warm breeze over a sunset. I adore these charming dinner plates by lifestyle expert, Aerin Lauder and look forward to spending the final few weeks of summer using them.

Buy: $59.95 (set of 4), Williams and Sonoma

AERIN Sea Blue Floral Dinner Plates
Hayes Black Marble Board

Marble Board

Ashley's pick:

I'll be spending my last few days of summer relaxing on the dock and enjoying delicious appetizers served on this stunning black marble cheese and charcuterie board.

Buy: $44.95, Crate & Barrel

Crochet Bag

Laura's pick:

We’re squeezing in an end of Summer trip to Portugal and I needed an easy breezy bag for day trips to town and to the beach. I love this one for its neutral colour; it works with everything I’m packing!

Buy: $69, Faithful

Alexandre Bag by Faithful
Frilled Asymmetrical Dress by Zara

Asymmetric Dress

Shannon's pick:

The end of summer always marks my birthday and this year it’s the big 3-0! I want a big party that marks the end of my 20s and the start my 30s. Hopefully I'll be wearing this fun flirty dress that I've been eyeing from Zara.

Buy: $49.90, Zara
