In anticipation of Canada Day celebrations this weekend, we have collaborated with some of our favourite Canadian bloggers to share a few hidden gems found within our wonderful country. Fashion blogger The Flora Law gives us her recommendations for a relaxing summer spent in Vancouver.

Shop the look: dress, shoes.

1A) Name a hidden gem you love within your city.
I love the dog beach at Kitsilano beach – it’s away from the main beach, which I like because it tends to be less crowded.

1B) What makes this place special to you?
It’s my favourite place to go with my friends and our pups to have a picnic and watch the sunset. The dogs get to be off-leash so we all really enjoy ourselves!

2) Where in Canada would you want to travel to next?
I would love to spend more time exploring Toronto.

3) How are you spending Canada Day?
I’m heading up to Squamish with my girlfriends – we’re going to do a hike and just enjoy nature. Fingers crossed the weather stays nice!

4) Your go-to terrace for a summer night out?
Reflections Rooftop Lounge at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia. They only open seasonally, and when they do, you know summer is around the corner!

5) Most Instagram-worthy spot in your city?
I love Boulevard Kitchen by the Sutton Place Hotel. Their patio has the cutest printed floors and the setup make me feel like I’m in Europe!
