Spring passed so quickly and somehow we have found ourselves in summer! From the city to the beach, speaking with our team, we all have different plans. I’m doing a roadtrip from Montreal to upper state New York for lakeside camping, thus I prefer items that can be mixed and matched for multiple occasions. You can find yourself at a wedding one day and in a kayak the next. Wet Hot American Summer, Dazed and Confused, Do the Right Thing, American Gigolo, and Deliverance are all on my mental inspo board.

Summer is all about uncomplicated energy, effortless cool, with just that certain piece that can elevate any look. I’ve asked our team what items will be joining their wardrobes this season from scents, swimwear, sunnies, to timeless summer staples. And as a former camp counsellor that graduated to Holiday Rep, please remember to put on your sunblock and don’t mix your drinks!
