OOTD - Striped Dress At The Beach


As much as I love living in the big city of Toronto, I often find myself dreaming of the beach - especially on a sunny day!  Thankfully I have the urban oasis of Sugar Beach in Toronto to help to quell my beachy cravings; sure it's sandwiched between an old sugar refinery and an office building -but it's got white sand and pink umbrellas so naturally I'm sold!  You guys know that I love dressing the part to set a scene, so an easy striped dress and a retro head-scarf seemed like an easy choice for this urban oasis.





Dress - SheInside, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff, Scarf - Thrifted, Sunglasses - Karen Walker


I've dubbed this striped t-shirt dress my "weekend dress," since every time Saturday rolls around it seems to make an appearance.  There's something so effortlessly cool about a t-shirt dress, and it's definitely my silhouette of choice for the Summer months. 


Similarly to the t-shirt dress, I love a little cross body bag in the summer for it's effortless style and comfort.  This Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac is a long time favourite of mine, and love how it can fit all of my essentials without weighing down my shoulders.



What do you guys think of the t-shirt dress?  Do you like to dress to set a scene too?  What about a "weekend uniform?"  So many questions!  Let me know your thoughts.

  1. This beach looks lovely actually. I have nothing similar to a beach in the city I live in, so I'd even take an urban one! My weekend wardrobe usually consists of skinny jeans and a flowy blouse. Yours is much more chic!

  2. I love this dress on you! It's the perfect summer staple. I bought a similar one from J.Crew a couple weeks ago and have been living in it as soon as the weekend hits. Perfect!

  3. These days my weekend uniform pretty much consist of a bikini and my "swim shorts" out at the cottage haha. But you know how much I love striped dresses, so let me know if you see any good ones!

    1. LOL I love the cottage looks! This particular striped dress is nice - no prockets, but thick enough material that you don't have to worry about it being see-through.

  4. Sugar beach looks awesome, I really want to take a day trip there, I live just out of the city I don't know what's taking me so long to visit, lol! The t-shirt dress looks gorgeous and I love the headband in your hair. This dress is exactly something I would wear on the weekends, as I like to dress up a little if I'm going out. The rest of the week I'm in workout or work clothes lol!
    p.s. Love your foot tattoo :) Have a great day!

  6. I really don't know how I've lived in Toronto for years and I still haven't made it to Sugar Beach. It's kind of sad.lol. I actually love shirt dresses. They are so versatile and comfy. Looks amazing on you too!
