White Retro & Top Summertime Day Dates

Pastels & Pasties-- White Zara dress, Rebecca Minkoff white micro Lexi bucket bag

Pairing a high neck mini dress with flats is one of those retro looks I have been loving lately. What's even better is that this dress (along with many others from Zara's summer line) have shorts underneath! So in case you were wondering, you now don't have to worry about pulling your legs up on the bench outside to enjoy your cold brew with your bae in the sun! Impromptu day dates, like the one in which I wore this dress, are my favourite. They don't have to be elaborate by any means; it just feels good to get out of the house and go for a simple stroll for an iced drink. I love that about summer. 

I also love the details this dress offers; a ruffled neckline, a deep V in the back, and made with the perfect lightweight, white cotton to withstand summer's heat. I must also introduce you to a new friend-- the white Micro Lexi bucket bag I scored on the online Rebecca Minkoff sample sale. It's the perfect mini bag for summer. I had been on the hunt for a white bag for the longest time; something to dress up or down and hold just the essentials. Mission accomplished!

In need of some impromptu day date activities? Here are some of my summertime favourites:

Ice cream and a walk

Bicycle rides around town

Take a drive to a quaint part of town and explore

Vintage furniture hunting / garage sale searching

Picnic in the park

Day at the lake / beach 

Trip to Centre Island

Jays Game in the sun (dome open, please!) 

Brunch and a matinée

Berry picking / farmer's market

Glass of rosé on the patio

Driving range to hit some balls

What are some of your favourite summer activities? Whether it be with friends/family/ or your love?

  6. One of my favourite combos: short hemline, high neckline, cute flats!
    Having shorts underneath makes this sound like the PERFECT summer dress Gabriella. Score!
