The city of Guelph, Ontario has lovely trails that meander along the Eramosa and Speed Rivers. This lattice covered bridge is a replica from the 1800s, part of the Royal Recreational Trail.
It is used by pedestrians and bicyclists, a romantic place to walk and reminisce on a pleasant spring day.
The bridge evokes nostalgic feelings of bygone days, even though it was built in 1992.
The huge lattice is magnificent with a spectacular view of the beautiful river through the “windows”.
My ivory lace blouse was bought online from Hudson’s Bay (Ralph Lauren). Silver necklace from Le Chateau and silver bracelet from Reitmans.
I bought this sheer, flowy skirt (which can be worn as a sundress) at Anna Bella. PERFECT for a Rumba! The ruffled handkerchief hem flares out beautifully when I twirl. I’ve already worn it twice to go dancing.
I bought these silver stilettos in NYC. I love silver shoes for dancing, they add a sparkle to my steps.

May your happy memories of days gone by outshine the sad moments of the past. Let’s remember the good times!
Look to the future, as George Burns once said … Look to the future because that is where you will spend the rest of your life.

Palazzo pants get their name from the Italian word palazzo meaning palace. What makes Palazzos distinct is their wide, billowy legs, whereas pajama-style pants are more narrow. Usually made with soft, flowy fabric means they are super comfortable to wear and can be casual for lounging or very elegant for a grandioso affair!
I just found these palazzo pants recently at Sirens and loved the print: paisley and abstract art in black and white with pops of coral and taupe.
Paisley design is much more noticeable in real life but a little lost in the photo.
St. Jacobs is a little tourist town only a half hour from where I live, great for day trips. I enjoy browsing through boutiques, antique and home decor shops–always find things I like.
There are fine restaurants and places for unique photo shoots for fashion bloggers. My shrug is more coral than the photo looks, I’m wearing a coral necklace I made and coral bracelet.
There’s even a nature trail for biking and hiking along the river.
This is Mennonite country with horse and buggies.
My Laurel Burch purse is my favourite handbag at the moment. Cats go with everything, right! I have two pairs of these sandals (non-leather, made in Italy) black ones and red ones. They have wedge heels and it feels like walking on clouds.
I have three pairs of Palazzo pants now, these colourful ones bought at Spanner last summer and I wore them in NYC. I bought a pair of teal lace Palazzos at a flea market in Brooklyn and will feature them in a upcoming post. They are suitable for one of those grandioso affairs. :D

May is one of my favourite months because lilacs, magnolias and apple blossoms are in their glory. There are lilacs in various colours: white, ivory, pink, mauve, pale violet and magenta.
With lilacs blooming everywhere, they make a lovely backdrop for this magenta blouse which has a delicate damask design in the weave.
This multi-coloured fabric purse by designer Laurel Burch is a cute summer purse. Check out her amazing designs. I love her whimsical cats. (Sadly, she passed away in 2007.)
Sterling silver necklace–the links are hearts–was bought in a little boutique in Stratford last summer.
T’is the season for capris; I love the lace inserts on the hem.
Lovely day for a stroll along the avenue.
I bought this silky soft blouse at Ricki’s (ladies fashion) a few months ago.
It’s a high low style so I have worn it with black leggings and booties.
Enjoy the blossoms of the merry month of May!
Life is good!

This thrifted denim jacket cost $$7.99. I bought it yesterday because I have been looking for one ever since I missed a really unique denim jacket at V.V. Boutique (Value Village).
Next stop, the ruins in downtown Galt (part of the City of Cambridge, Ontario).
I like the look of rugged with delicate, so I’m pairing it with my white embroidered blouse and eyelet skirt. I bought the blouse last summer and my skirt is about 15 years old (the reason I have so many clothes because I keep them and take care of them).
The scent of lilacs surrounding me in this rugged and beautiful place is something a camera cannot capture, but the imagination can.
A great place for my adventurous grandson.

My brand new first-pair-ever white skinny jeans will be a staple in my wardrobe. I don’t know how I got along without them. I guess it’s because I do have quite a few white pants and capris, but nothing looks as good with a long top as skinny jeans or leggings.
These stretchy jeans are from LE CHATEAU (Canadian clothing store) fake fly and fake pockets make for a smooth look.
My pale pink (knit-that-looks-crocheted) top from ANNA BELLA reminds me of my crocheting days. My mom taught me how to crochet and it was a creative hobby. She crocheted beautiful dresses and one-of-a-kind tops, and cute baby outfits for my children.
This lacy crocheted top is a lovely shade of mauve, it is shorter and I would not wear leggings with it, so these jeans are perfect. I bought it a few years ago at GARAGE.
