Lazy Days of Summer

We enjoyed a day trip on the country roads of Southern Ontario. It’s so relaxing to stay off the highway with no particular place to go, just breezing along at a slower pace, no rush, stop when and where we want.

I’m wearing wrap pants that look like a skirt, very lightweight and flowy. Turquoise and white are one of my favourite summer two-toned outfits. I added a wicker purse and a turquoise sun hat, which are very special to me because they were gifts from my dear friend Roxanne.

Elora

It’s an artsy town we always visit every summer, besides the beautiful scenery, there are places to enjoy hiking and biking … and … shopping!

Fergus

This Scottish town reminds me of our time in Scotland. I discovered an eco-boutique like my daughter’s store in Seattle, Drizzle & Shine: everything ethical, fairtrade and eco-friendly, as well as vegan. I bought a cute little dress that I can wear this summer and will transition into fall with a cardigan, tights and booties. Did I say the 4-letter F-word — FALL? I don’t even want to think about that yet, not while the weather is so beautiful and I’m enjoying every day!

We checked out some consignment and secondhand shops

Singhampton

Just a dot on the map and a place I’ve never even heard of before, but there’s a great little antique shop where we found this vintage enamel cookware set made in Germany. It just happens to match the dishes which I bought in Germany in 1982.

Driving through the countryside, we stopped at a farm to buy potatoes, veggies and berries.

Turquoise jewellery to go with my outfit

We are waiting for the arrival of our third grandchild!

      Thank you very much Amy! Glad we had a chance to do some traveling around Southern Ontario this summer. We’ll be staying close to home now that our grandson was born! I’m so glad they live only 15 minutes away. 🙂

  5. It is lovely to drive around at leisure exploring small towns Carmen , I love it !! When you go out with no plan or schedule it is sometimes the best and most memorable of adventures. I was fooled again into thinking the pants were a skirt ! They are really cute with the top and wicker purse. Also the nice matching sandals and necklace. I would love to visit these towns someday , they are so nice from the pics. I am so excited for you in anticipation of your grandchild being born!! Have a great day, Terri xo

    I love this lace top, it is beautiful and you have watermarks and a design that you fall in love with. The turquoise skirt is also wonderful and all the accessories of that color form a perfect outfit, especially the pamela, which looks beautiful on you. As always, absolutely wonderful and stylish.

      Thank you so much! It’s one of my favourite summer tops and I have worn it several times on my blog, even recently to the lavender garden. The pamela hat was the perfect match for this outfit with a wide brim that is good protection from the sun. 🙂
