Living the Good Life
Accessing Summer Accessories
Summertime and the living is easy. But does living the good life have a particular look? While some embrace the boho chic of a wildly printed maxi dress, others delight in a classic, if gently rumpled, linen shirt. Wherever you land on the style continuum, embracing deep summer requires a few timeless accessories: the perfect sunglasses, a statement hat, and an effortless straw bag. All of these pieces, essential to the good life, must come with both style and provenance.
The Milan from Amevie A well-chosen pair of sunglasses is essential to a pulled-together summer look.
Amevie shades are cool, classic and made in Canada of renewable bamboo. *$90.33, available at Toronto Designer’s Market, 1605 Queen St. West and www.amevie.com.
My Putchi Hats Whether strolling down St. Clair or lounging at the cottage, a hand-woven wide-brimmed hat, from Montreal-based My Putchi, protects your complexion while making a style statement. From *$200, available at www.myputchi.com.
Mila Woven Basket Bag, Cambio & Co. The perfect straw bag is a timeless summer accessory and the key to living the good life (where else can you stash a chilled bottle of rosé, a towel, and a swimsuit?).
