What I’ve Been Wearing – Summer Fashion Update

Hello sweet friends!  I hope you are having a fantastic summer, full of warmth, sunshine, and fun 🙂  We’ve been having a great summer thus far, both enjoying the way Toronto blooms in the warm weather, and also heading out a bit farther on weekends.  This summer, we’ve been going to the beach for at least one day each weekend to relax, splash around, and work on our tans.  It’s been fabulous!

Summer is also my very favourite season in terms of style!  While it’s true that the heat prevents fun layering and limits choice if you want to be comfortable, I adore the simplicity of dresses, no need for stockings, and the bounty of both light breezy looks and bold bright colours.  Here are a few outfits I’ve enjoyed wearing the past little while:

This beachy looking date night outfit was great for a Saturday evening in the city, going to one of our favourite Thai restaurants, and having dinner on their patio.

  • White maxi dress (H&M)
  • Silver & turquoise necklace (souvenir from Mexico)
  • White wedges (Aldo)

Pretty in Pink, out running errands – I think we were looking for a bike for Nick on that day.

  • Bright pink dress (Venus)
  • Hot pink clutch (Aldo)
  • Silver flip flops (I think these were an emergency drugstore purchase)

Animal prints for the Office, a cute dress I bought back in the winter, but it works all year, and for both night and day 🙂  I am not usually the animal print type, but this one has been a fun foray into fashion risks!

  • Sleeveless leopard print dress (Suzy Shier)
  • Floral purse (Brand is Miche, gift)
  • Nude patent pumps (Nine West)
  • Silver & turquoise necklace (same piece as in outfit #1)
  • Silver & crystal bracelet (gift)

Another fun date night, celebrating 5 years since we met with dinner at Copacabana!

  • Black paillette dress (Venus)
  • Hot pink clutch (Aldo)
  • Black patent pumps (thrift store find)
  • Silver & crystal bracelet (gift)

A small snapshot of my summer wardrobe, peppered with brights, whites, and even a bit of animal print!  What have you been wearing this summer? Are you trying out new outfits and looks, or going back to old favourites?
