A Cold Winter’s Day

What to do on a cold day in January? Reminisce of summer days and dream of warm, sunny days ahead!

Through the years I have enjoyed winter sports; skating, tobogganing and cross-country skiing, but when temperatures drop way below freezing and the frigid air takes my breath away, and my nose and toes freeze, I prefer to stay cozy and warm indoors, and remember those lovely, summer days.

Here are some outfits I wore in the summer 2012. Canada Day (July 1st) starts the summer off with red and white. This red handkerchief skirt has a pretty, white lace print.

My white top is a peasant-style T-shirt with a delicate, crocheted neckline.

Summer isn’t complete without a stroll through Stratford, Ontario.


It’s a warm feeling looking back at summer days …

    I really like the first and last outfit, you look beautiful with them. The skirt and the top of the first one are beautiful, and the image is bucolic. In the past I love the combination of earth and black, with these beautiful necklaces, is a beautiful look.

      Thank you, Jeannie! Not sure why I live in a northern climate – I love warm weather. Last January we escaped the winter! Florida dreaming on such a winter’s day!!!


  5. Hurry up spring! It’s hard to remember that it gets that nice here when it’s so awful right now. Thanks for reminding me there is something to look forward to ; )
