I can’t believe it’s the last day of summer! The weather certainly doesn’t feel like it. To keep summer alive, I wanted to share one of my favourite outings this summer, when we visited Pickering Millenium Square for a relaxing beach day. I fell in love with the quaint village filled with independent cafes, art galleries and small businesses.
It was blazing hot so I wore a yellow floral romper from Hollister (similar romper here), marble sunglasses c/o Polette, a panama hat from Joe Fresh, tassle earrings from H&M, watch c/o Daniel Wellington and Koolchic espadrilles from Nine West for a colourful beach look.
These marble sunglasses from Polette add instant impact to my look. I love the edgy contrast of the mirror with the marble, and they’ve been very durable so far. I wanted to protect myself from the sun, so these sunglasses and panama hat are the perfect accessories.
Pickering Millenium Square has plenty of picnic space along the beach, and a couple gorgeous marina restaurants I plan on visiting next year. I really enjoyed walking along the boardwalk to the lighthouse (which is an amazing photo opp) and watching the boaters go by. Yes, it’s right beside a nuclear power plant, but the revitalized area and quiet atmosphere make it well worth the drive from Toronto. The beach was a bit more rocky than Woodbine or Sunnyside, but I loved that it wasn’t packed with crowds. Parking was also easy to find (for free) on a side street. When you visit, you need to end your day with a stop for some Kawartha Dairy ice cream. To me, that’s summer in a dessert.
