Summer breeze

Flower lace shorts c/o Sammydress / Chambray blouse from Smart Set / Quilted bag from LuLu's / Camera ring c/o Bornpretty Store

I spent the weekend being touristy in my own city while exploring downtown life. I started out by falling asleep on the subway, waking up to find that I was at my stop, abruptly running to the door (only to be stopped by the hoards of people), muttering "noooo!" under my breath, then pretending to play it cool. After meeting up with a friend and collecting free samples along the way, we found ourselves at the waterfront. The view was nice, but it's kind of a weird atmosphere. It's a man-made beach, so it looks like a thin layer of sand is plunked there by the water. And sure, beaches should be relaxing, but this beach was so quiet, I almost felt like I had to whisper.

Being from the suburbs and having spent years in government-esque Ottawa, I forgot how trendy people can be in downtown Toronto. On the other hand, here I am with my chambray shirt and flower lace shorts feeling like I'm dressed like a 16 year old. Don't get me wrong, I love how cute and light they are, but it just felt out of place when every other girl was wearing a floral chiffon skirt with a crop top. Did I call Toronto trendy? Maybe "hipster" would be a better term.

  5. I seriously love this outfit - the effortlessly chic vibe from this look is beautiful! Those shorts are to die for!

    I think I need to play tourist in my town again as well - I live in Washington, DC and I should go around to my favorite places before real tourists start coming! What a great idea :]

  6. I don't think you look like a 16 year old here! I love this look -- the shorts, the wedges, the jewelry, everything...
    Man made beaches are interesting...I've never been to one, but the concept definitely seems intriguing. I would feel like I'm cheating by not being at the real thing though....haha.
