Everything Under The Sun For Summer

I became aware of Poppys Collection after purchasing this totally adorable and durable sweat suit for Little Man from a pop up in my local promenade here in Toronto. The lady helping me in the pop up encouraged me to check out their website for more fabulous kid finds and once I did, I fell totally and completely in love with their curated list of wonderfulness. So I asked if they’d be willing to be a guest editor this month and share some wonderfulness with all of you! I just love the uniqueness of the collection and that everything is lovingly crafted by true artisans (you should all know how I feel about artisans by now!) It brings me so much joy to support small businesses, especially ones run by moms.  On top of all the good feels, I’m also getting handcrafted, unique and beautiful products to spoil my kiddos with. It’s truly a win/win.

It is my absolute pleasure to introduce you to Kathryn McNally, the founder of Poppys Collection, and her very special list of summer goodies she’s put together for all my heavenly days readers. Enjoy! XOXO, KT

Poppys Collection

Poppys Collection is a small Canadian women-run business that curates timeless clothes, hand-crafted toys, and elevated accessories for parents and their little ones. Many of our and products are made or designed by moms. After all, moms know best!

The kiddos in our lives are the center of our world and we love to spoil them. But we would much rather give them a few high-quality pieces rather than lots of stuff that will fall apart after a week.

Just in time for summer, here are some of our favorite kids clothes and accessories from London, Paris, Madrid, Vancouver and New York.

Katherine’s son, Joshua, literally lives in these sweatshirts and sweatpants. The great thing about them is they’re practically indestructible because they have double fabric on the elbows and knees. Plus they’re perfect for warm morning snuggles and late evening cuddles.

Magic Dress

This sassy, sunshine yellow sundress is perfect for beach days and summer picnics. It’s designed by two mamas who started a boho-inspired kids clothing line while on a trip to India.

Fanny Pack

These are brilliant and practical bag for kids, the fanny pack. Give your little ones something of their own to carry around all their little treasures in.

Sun Hat

This bucket hat is UPF50+ with a fun monochrome panda print. It’s also coated with a clever built-in mosquito repellent. And it’s completely machine washable. You’re welcome!


The only thing more important than protecting our kids’ skin is protecting their little eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. These are trendy and super fun frames your kids will love. And they’re made in Katherine’s home away from home, Canada! Our favorites for her girls are these XO Sunglasses.

The Beach Toys

Bliss is a day spent at the beach with the kids, building sand castles and playing in the water. Unfortunately, most beach toys fall apart after one day in the sand. Here’s the solution! Beach toys designed and made in Belgium that are not only unbelievably fun but they’re also built to last… season after season.

Our summer essentials list wouldn’t be complete without swimwear. We’re gushing over these Tropical Victoria swimsuits and long swim-shorts.
