Bar III Dress and Zara Sandals


all black everything

Growing up in the suburbs, I will be the first to admit that all the special hotspots and photographic places in Toronto are still so uncovered to me. I’m so happy that I can still find wonders outside of my backyard – it’s so easy to convince yourself that you’ve done it all and seen it all, so grateful to know that I don’t/haven’t. This masculine, structured iron-like wall is steps away from the man-made beach where I shot this outfit.


On this warm day, I was sick of all the summer basics… Tank tops, t-shirts, short shorts, bright colours etc. So I kept it classy while staying effortless (& cool) in this stunning Bar III dress from Macy’s. I paired it with my trusty Black Zara thick-strapped sandals (that I bought in two colours, obvi) – which is truly my go-to Summer shoe!

Why you ask? Well, it’s open-toe, classic and most of all, freakin’ COMFORTABLE, which is priceless for those long Summer dance-till-dawn nights! Mind you, the colour Black can be tough to stomach when you’re dealing with intense temperatures of 25°C+, so if you don’t even want to deal with all the drama of wearing Black during the Spring/Summer, but crave this chic and timeless look, this dress come in a Pink colour too which is absolutely gorgeous!
I also really liked these two from Macy’s …this one and this one (esp for Autumn/Winter!).
