The Cutest Women’s Hoodie Dress for Summer

Everyone is looking for soft, comfy loungewear outfits to wear around the house, the backyard, and maybe even the beach. This darling women’s hoodie dress from Soft Surroundings is my new go-to look!

I was set to go down to Florida in March, and I was really excited about picking this dress. ( similar dress here)  I thought it would be great to wear if I was walking along the boardwalk or to wear as a beach coverup.

But with Stay-at Home orders in place, they hung in my closet for a long time.  It’s finally summer in Toronto, and it’s beautiful out. We’re barbequing, dining Alfresco, and tending to the garden.

This cute hooded sweatshirt dress is perfect for all those things!

It’s a soft knit, so it’s super comfy and nice and roomy, but it has some shape. I love the sporty zip-up neckline, and of course, coral is such a gorgeous color in the summer. It makes me look tanned!

How do you like these sandals? I love the full, soft, stretchy crisscross straps because they make them very comfy. They’re also super lightweight, which is a bonus putting a pep in my step. I feel like I’m walking on air.

Isn’t this the cutest? This hoodie dress is the perfect thing for relaxing or puttering around in. The big half-moon pockets are so cute, and I think the drawstring hoodie adds such a cool touch.

Soft Surroundings also have earrings, and I’m wearing one of their bestsellers. These blue beaded hoops are a lot of fun and give this darling outfit a beachy boho feel. If you want to look cute and feel comfy this summer, pick up this great little dress. It also comes in a beautiful Heather Grey color.

It will be great for traveling, too, once things open up. It’s the kind of dress you can toss in your suitcase and not worry about.

  1. Hi Deb, I love the sandals and would love to take them on vacation. Can you please tell me where to find them? Thank you!

  2. Your dress is adorable, and I can see why it would be perfect for Florida but…..I could not take my eyes off your AMAZING view of a peaceful lake. Wow. If you have got to be home, you have the perfect place to stay in quarantine.

    1. Hi Barbara, Thank You. Just call me the Lake Lady. I have lived on the lake (2 different houses) for nearly 25 years! It’s such a calming force. I’m fortunate to have this view!

  3. Deborah,
    Any chance you could do a whole post on false eyelashes–I’ve been intrigued and interested in using them? I would love suggestions on brands and application techniques.

    1. Hi Jill, I just ordered some magnetic ones because I use the false ones when I shoot, and I find it so stressful to put them on. When I get them, I’ll experiment with the magnetic ones and report back!

  4. I could wear this Penelope dress in soft surroundings; I have many dresses from SS.
    I CAN’T WEAR EITHER COLOR, This coral or the soft grey! Too bad it looks like a fabulous dress, but I’m trying to stay true to my signature colors.

  5. Your backyard is stunning! Thanks for your helpful and inspiring posts and for not getting political in the past few weeks. It’s refreshing!

    1. Thank you, Julia. I used to have a TV show on HGTV many years ago called Backyard Pleasures, and I filmed it in my backyard- not this one, but a place we used to live down the street. You can’t beat that view!

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
