Summer Must-Haves
Posted: Jul 12, 2019

Heading up to the cottage? Planning a beach day? Or simply spending some much needed time in your own backyard poolside? Here are some must-haves for the summer season found in and around Burlington Downtown.

 

PUT ON A BATHER

A great swimsuit is a definite must and a few of our retailers downtown have you covered… or less covered, depending on what look you’re going for! Bocana Boutique, Forever Summer Swimsuits, Lingerie-D’amour are your go-to bathing suit shops for women. And for the men? Jeff’s Guyshop is where you want to head in search of brand new swim trunks to look great poolside.

 

GET THE GLOW

Get sun-kissed skin ahead of your weekend away with a spray tan from YOURTAN, Liv Bella or Body Language & Spa. These bronzing queens will be sure to deliver that flawless tan without anyone knowing you didn’t already spend a weekend basking in the sun.

 

PROTECT FROM THE SUN

If you’re heading into a sunny weekend, protection for your skin is definitely a must.  Sunscreen protects us from the sun’s harmful rays but where to grab that perfect SPF downtown? Many of our spas carry high-end skin lines – stop by The Water’s Edge Salon, Dynamic Laserworks or Anise Apothecary to view their latest in sun protection products & soothing serums.

 

GRAB YOUR SUNNIES

A must-have for any summer vacay is obviously a pair of new sunglasses. Stop by Specs on Pearl, IGO Optical or Tracy Brodie & Associates for the latest go-to luxury sunnies.

 

WEAR A SUMMERY #OOTD

Summer means heat. But what to wear to keep as cool as possible while still rockin’ a hashtag worthy #OOTD? The downtown retailers are fully stocked with casual summer-wear that is loose, airy & vibrant. Try a flowy maxi-dress from Wish Boutique, stylish men’s shorts from Scrivener’s, a beautiful kimono from the Little Pop-Up Shoppe, a summer scrunchie from Pure Boutique.

 

SCORE SOME SANDALS

Take your #OOTD to the next level with stylish sandals from Joelle’s, and Posh Couture.

EXPOSE THE TOES

Since you’re rockin’ your new sandals, a fresh pedicure is a MUST! Get the perfect summertime shade at Styled Lounge, Spa in the Village, Purity Nails, J’adore Nails, The Vogue Spa, JeSpa and so many more!
