Whether you are spending summer in your own backyard or globe-trotting, you’ll need to be prepared for the warmer temperatures, sun rays and longer days. Especially as Canadians, our lifestyles changes quite a bit in the summer months. We are spending more time outdoors, on our feet and under the sun. So, we’ve put together a few must-have items to keep on hand all season long! Read on for four items you’ll need this summer:
A hat to protect you from the sun
In addition to your sunscreen, be sure to cover up that pretty head of yours to protect your skin from harmful sunrays that speed up aging and raise your risk of skin cancer. This striped Zara hat ($29.90 at Zara) with frayed edges is perfect to pair with your favourite summer dress or a tank and jean shorts.
A razor for smooth legs on-the-go
The summer months are for showing off your sexy stems! It’s not easy to plan your pool party circuit around waxing appointments, so opt for a disposable razor that you can throw in your bag and use when you need it. We love BIC Soleil Shine razors ($6.23 to $9.49 at major retailers) with five blades and a moisture strip enriched with Aloe and Cocoa Butter that glide smoothly along your skin, leaving you with silky skin you’ll be eager to show off.
A pair of comfortable sandals
In the summer we walk A LOT. And although wedges and heels are cute, they are not always practical. We spent all fall and spring in sneakers, but those can get sweaty (and let’s be honest, stinky!) on warm days. So, it’s important to have a comfy pair of flats that can take you around the city. We found these insanely affordable Forever 21 faux leather gladiator sandals ($26.90 at Forever 21) available in brown and black that will go with every outfit “ from the park to the party.
A tote to carry it all in
A clutch isn’t going to hold your sunscreen, flats, razors and hat! You need a spacious and fashionable tote to bring with you on those long summer days. This gorgeous white, laser cut, floral-patterned tote from Aldo, ($55 at Aldo) can be dressed up or down. Plus, it can double as a carry-on as you jet set around the globe.
