Friday’s Fab Favourites: Sugar Beach

sugar beach zara seersucker heart print dress

This Friday, I’m pairing up and co-hosting with Lauren Slade of the Style Elixir for a Friday’s Fab Favourites post – you can link up below! I wanted to share not only an outfit, but a favourite place, and one of my favourite spots in the city is Sugar Beach. Along the eastern waterfront in Toronto, the beach is adorned with retro umbrellas in a stunning bubblegum pink shade, as if they were plucked off of South Beach or somewhere along the Mediterranean. I could spend hours just reading the newspaper and watching sailboats, all while being intoxicated by the smell of sugar. Sugar Beach gets its name from the Redpath sugar factory right next door, which is unsightly, but the area has been completely rejuvenated with a swanky new George Brown campus and this little patch of pastel beach paradise!

I’m wearing a seersucker heart print Zara dress (sold out, similar BDG Bow-Back Stripe Sweetheart Dress from Urban Outfitters), Forever 21 Island Girl Round floral sunglasses, Michael Kors Pressly watch, Forever 21 daisy bracelet, silver Half Moon necklace c/o The Infinitine and an old red tote from H&M (similar LeSportsac Everygirl Tote).

zara seersucker dress

I threw this dress over top of my Victoria’s Secret bandeau bikini. I usually wear caftans or sheer coverups, but I couldn’t exactly ride the TTC on a Wednesday afternoon in that kind of beachy get up! The seersucker fabric of this dress is very light for a hot day but it’s thick and opaque enough to wear to dinner afterwards. I also love the cute cut outs, which is also a great way to beat the heat! I’m hoping that heat comes back soon for the rest of the summer, so that I can visit Sugar Beach again!

    That dress is so pretty! I was unsure about it when I saw it in Zara, but it looks great on you! It is the perfect summer dress!
