Style Challenge and the Donkey Sanctuary

donkeyVisiting the Donkey Sanctuary near Guelph, Ontario is something I’ve been wanting to do ever since friends of ours told us they volunteer there. The sanctuary is home for 75 rescued Donkeys (plus even more if you count the mules and hinnies). We learned so much about these interesting, lovable animals and how misunderstood they are, often ending up abused and neglected. If you live in Southern Ontario, this is an awesome day trip you will enjoy–GUARANTEED!!

Jean and I bought these black tops at the Boxi Flea Market in Berlin this summer. Here’s how my daughter styled hers; click HERE to see her blog.

Her shoes were bought in Munich  – Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather (from Veganista)

I wore all black, a drastic change from my all white looks that I wore during the summer. The tops came with a black cami.

This was my first time wearing my black top: the first day of autumn and first time at the Donkey Sanctuary. I brought my little vintage Steiff donkey.

    Gorgeous women, I’m sure you were the most fashionable one there. I know someone who has volunteered there, too.

  4. Such sweet donkeys! I’m glad you got to visit such a happy place.

    I like your elegant all-black look. Next time I’ll try black pants and perhaps swap out the cami with one in a contrasting shade. So many options!

    It must be a very nice place ! I would love to visit it …
    It has always made me feel sad thinking of how people mistreat donkeys. They are very calm and sensitive animals …
