The Cutest Women’s Hoodie Dress for Summer

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

In March, I was all set to go down to Florida, and I was really excited about taking 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, it hung in my closet for a very long time, until now.  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 it’s nice and roomy, but it has some shape too. 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 it makes them very comfy to wear. 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, then this great little dress to pick up. It also comes in a beautiful Heather Grey color.

I think 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 have to worry about!

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

    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 very lucky to have this view!

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

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

  3. I think I could wear this Penelope dress from soft surroundings in fact I have many dresses from SS
    I JUST CANT WEAR EITHER COLOR This coral or the soft grey! Too bad it looks like an awesome dress but I’m trying to stay true to my signature colors.

  4. Your backyard is absolutely stunning! Thanks for your helpful and inspiring posts and thank you 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 in my backyard- not this one, but a place we used to live at down the street. You can’t beat that view!
