Road Trip: Elora

Since we are not going away for our holidays this summer, that means we’ve been doing road trips and this time we took a country drive to the charming little town of Elora. It’s a tourist town with a river view.

We usually park before we get into town and then walk across the bridge. We often take our grandchildren as we did this time.

I bought a new rug for our entrance way (made in Belgium).

It’s always a delight at this time of year with flowers everywhere. Glad I decided to wear my maxi floral wrap dress. It’s cooler than wearing pants or capris. The wonderful thing about dresses is that you don’t have to find something that matches, just add accessories and shoes and you’re good to go.

If the shoe fits!

I bought these cute pink sandals online (my first time buying footwear online). I always need to try on shoes to see how they fit and feel because I don’t always wear the same size, depending on the manufacturer. These are non-leather with little zippers at the back and very comfortable. I walked all afternoon without any pain.

Hope you’re enjoying the summer of 2018, only 4 months till Christmas!

Have a fabulous Friday!

    What a beautiful dress! I love this pattern and also how you camouflage among the flowers of the garden, because you are the most beautiful flower on Earth. I love your sandals, so delicate, so adapted to your delicacy. The town you visited looks very beautiful, your whole country is beautiful.

      Thank you kindly for such a lovely compliment Josep-Maria! The flowers of summer are a treat for eyes! I’m happy to show you some beautiful places in Southern Ontario. Canada is so big that I have only been to two provinces: Ontario where I live and Quebec where I spent just one day in Montreal. I have travelled to many States in America, most of the countries in Central America and several countries in Europe. Someday, I would love to take a train across Canada from west to east. 🙂

  3. Hi Carmen, it is nice that you park and then walk the bridge into Elora. Great to stretch the legs after a drive! Oh my gosh I love the flowers and your floral maxi fits right in with them! Gorgeous! It is nice to have the freedom and coolness of a dress over pants. It beats seperates for sure and you just need to accessorise which you have done so well as always. The purse and sandals are so cute with it:) Congrats on your first online shoe purchase ! We are enjoying the summer before it is gone! Your superimposed photo with the flowers is amazing , You are the prettiest flower though. Happy friday Dear, hugs, Terri xo.

      It is one of my favourite little towns and there are lovely trails and nature walks. A fantastic quarry nearby where people dive off the cliffs (not me!) and swim. I’ll have to show photos next time we go.

      This photo is from Google images, I’ll replace it once I take photos.

      Thanks for stopping by my friend!

      Day trips are the best way to enjoy our surroundings and discover lovely places! I so enjoy the flowers and that’s why I’m in love with floral prints! You’re right, the weather will change and in two months all flowers will be gone with the autumn wind. *sigh*

      Enjoy the rest of the summer days dear Ute!

      Thank you Jodie! I’ve always had some florals in my wardrobe all through my life but never as much as now. When floral jeans came out, I stocked up, so I have 6 pairs. 🌷🌼🌷🌼🌷 🌼
