Stubborn Farmer It was an incredible experience. Kids got to muck around in the mud, we learned about growing food locally and even met a lamb that was only a few hours old. Fun was had by all, but most likely the most fun was had by papa and grandma,who actually got some piece and quite at the cottage! Imagine that!

I just love these pants! They make me feel so sporty. #sportyspice. I picked them up at For Women Only while I was in Yellowknife and I haven't taken them off since!! I go from the office, to sales meetings and the soccer field in this outfit. Athleisure is the absolute perfect trend for my crazy busy life. The Italia Sweatshirt is one of my favourite pieces of our SS2015 collection, and just happens to be 50% off this weekend!! Hope everyone is having an awesome kick off to the summer! And for the record, it's actually warmer in Yellowknife then Toronto this weekend! How knew?

Summer’s almost here! And the beautiful weather makes you want to skip work, drop off the kids to your parents', call up your girlfriends and grab lunch/drinks in a cozy patio. But patio weather must be celebrated with caution - so protect, prime and prep your skin with some of my favourite SPFs.
1. Vichy// IDÉAL SOLEIL ULTRA-LIGHT LOTION SPF 50 - Doesn’t leave white film, so it’s perfect for all skin tones.

The cocktail crush diaries continues! This cocktail is perfect for summer nights in, when you have the girls over for some after dinner snacks and good conversation. A great twist from your traditional gin & tonic, the cucumber-rosemary addition is refreshing and gives you enough liquid courage to do some impromptu karaoke.

This skirt is still one of my all time favourite pieces. As we embark on our 20th anniversary, I am having a ball going through some of the preloved classics. This skirt was made for our SS2009 collection, and is made from an old trench coat! The design on this still blows me away, although the pain of producing it is still fresh. The Georgie Trench Skirt was produced back in the day, when the design team worked in one room, and the production team in another. There wasn't a ton of communication between the two. When I first saw this skirt in the design meeting, I fell in love, and thought it was totally a work of art! What we didn't realize was how specific the vintage requirements were. It had to be produced from double breasted trench coat (with perfect buttons) the vent on the back of the coat had to be a certain measurement and the original pockets had to be in a certain placement. I think we must have gone through thousands of trench coats, to find the ones that would be come the Georgie Trench Skirt. This skirt was a turning point in how we produce, and how we design, and how the two teams need to work together! Stay tuned for more preloved classics. #prelovedturns20

We hosted our first Pop Up of the year earlier this month! This time we crashed in on Cabbagetown . It was so fun meeting and greeting with some of our die hard preloved fans, and a chance to put a face to a few of our new online fans! Brenda It was so awesome to be back on the retail floor! So glad the weather was great and love the Cabbagetown area, the community was very supportive and sad that we were only there for 4 days ! Don't worry, we'll be back soon . See you shopping soon!

Ok I did it. I got myself a pair of wide leg jeans. This is quite the departure from the distressed skinnies I have been rocking for what seems like forever. My husband call these my Mackenzie Phillips Jeans. Every time I put them on, he starts humming the theme song to 'one day at a time' It's at about that time I wish I had Schneiders tool belt to wack him in the head with! #marriedlife

A lot of creative things happen in and around the office, but photoshoots are definitely one of the many most fun things . It's great to see awesome models rock our collection and bring the clothes to life ! Photoshoot days are sometimes over the top stressful, but our team keeps up the energy and we power through with sushi !
It was a blast working with pretty model Aislinn for the first time, and frequent make up artist Carmen ! (@plutino)

Summer is easily the best time of year for me. The weather is perfect, the outfits are cute and most importantly, day drinking seems to be acceptable! As long as you're on a patio or a backyard no one really questions it.
Family and friends bring over watermelons to backyard parties and summer hang outs all the time. This cocktail is absolutely perfect for when you have a whole bunch of watermelon left over, or when you tell the kids to BACK OFF, you have had enough, Mommy needs her watermelon too!
