This post was sponsored by Logan & Finley. I was not paid, but given clothes to review.
Did you get a chance to read part 1, part 2, and part 3 of this series? You can check out 3 lovely summer outfits from Logan & Finley, including 1 for men! Eco-fashion has come a long way, and is now available more than ever.
I launched this new summer series a month and a half ago, called Meet me at the market, all about eco-fashion and sponsored by the amazing Logan & Finley boutique, located at 670 Queen street West, in Toronto! I will publish an article showing off an outfit, every other Friday, for the whole summer! Today is the second last outfit.
The clothes that I have/will be showing off are made using certified organic cotton, something I feel strongly about since conventional cotton agriculture uses so much pesticides and insecticides, it is devastating for the soil, our water, our health, as well as the health of the workers working in cotton fields. If you’d like to learn more about the differences between conventional cotton and organic cotton, please read my article “What is so special about organic food? Part 2 – Beyond food”)
LOGAN & FINLEY
I teamed up with Logan & Finley in Toronto to show everyone that it is possible to live a stylish life while supporting organic agriculture and organic clothes. Logan & Finley is an urban general store, that celebrated their 1st anniversary a month ago, where quality meets local, organic, and natural. A store where you can feel good about what you’re buying, as Julie (the owner) takes extra good care at picking out the best selection available. All of their items must at least meet one of her criteria to get into the store (a lot of them actually meet 2 or 3 of them): they must be local, either regional, or Canadian, they must be eco-conscious (hence why the majority of the clothes offered are organic), or they must be built-to-last (a quality rare in most cheap commercial items nowadays).
Logan & Finley sells urban modern clothes for men and women, as well as a variety of non-toxic and reusable household items like cleaners, and locally-made all-natural beauty products. They are one of the rare few to carry an extensive collection of Weck jars (those amazingly cute canning jars so popular), as well as the Abeego line of product, a Canadian-made revolutionary product meant to be used like plastic wrap on your food, but made with organic cotton and beeswax (we use ours all the time)!
If you live in the Toronto area (or close enough…), I highly recommend stopping at 670 Queen street West; say hi to Julie (the owner), and let her know Eyecandypopper sent ya! A beautiful store with a beautiful spirit. If you don’t live close enough, be patient! Logan & Finley is working on getting their online shop set-up so that you too can benefit from the great products. You can go visit the Logan & Finley website and sign-up for the newsletter to stay in-the-know! You can also like their Facebook page, and follow their Twitter account or Instagram account.
This series is meant to show off casual clothes to wear on the weekend, to go to your local Farmers’ Market, meet a friend for brunch, catch a movie, go to the cottage, etc. Whatever you want to do, there are healthy and non-polluting options! Oh, and did I mention that the prices are really affordable? They are comparable in price to any good quality items out there, if not cheaper. Remember that quality surpasses quantity.
Logan & Finley was part of 10 Best from USA Today as a super-duper-awesome destination in Toronto, why not go see it for yourself?
Today’s outfit consists of this beautiful white organic cotton sleeveless shirt, with coral decorative embroidery at the top. I’ve worn this shirt with bermuda shorts (like in the picture at the beach) as well as with casual skinny jeans, and I absolutely love it. It’s dressy enough but casual at the same time. A really nice piece in my wardrobe that I can wear in the summer and will be able to wear in colder months with a simple cardigan on top. I can even wear it tucked-in dressy pants or a skirt, and a cardigan, and be able to go to a work meeting in it. A very classy and versatile piece. I love it! Go get one! 🙂
Thank you to Logan & Finley — 670 Queen Street West, Toronto ON, for giving me this beautiful top for today’s post!

Ok, so now for the really cool and fun part: Logan & Finley is giving away $100 gift certificate to their store for one lucky Eyecandypopper reader! How awesome is that?!! And perfect timing for Back-to-school and get some new items for fall. All the entries are still being verified and unfortunately I haven’t had time to contact the winner yet, so I will try to do this over the weekend and announce it in one of my regular posts next week. Sorry to keep you guys hanging!
Stay tuned for the last series’ post in 2 weeks!
