This summer, in addition to shopping for the season, I’m looking ahead to a beach resort vacation March 2020. Enter this Loft floral jumpsuit. I bought it for dinners at the resort but have already worn to DD’s dance recital and dinner out after. I expect it to get some further wears this summer as it’s easy, cool and has pockets!

I’ve been a wristlet + tote gal for the past couple of years. I use the tote mainly for work with the wristlet tucked in. I use the wristlet for everything else. It’s got to be big enough for our huge car keys - not easy. I’ve been looking for the perfect cognac leather one for a couple of years. No luck yet. So instead of buying one in a different colour, I decided to try a wildcard - this floral fannypack from Simons. The size is right, love the colours and it hugs the body rather than sticking way out.

Finally I bought this maxi from Gap thinking it could work as a coverup at the resort. It’s already clocked several wears. It’s super comfy, love the vneck and how it cuts up at the sides feeling less overwhelming for my 5’ 4” height. Like many, I’ve been off black for a few years preferring dark blue/ink. I’ve come to realize I love black in the summer with a bit of skin.

What have been your summer wildcards?
