What I wore for a weekend getaway to Collingwood, Ontario.
For our 50th wedding anniversary, my husband bought me this whimsical lace dress. We were on our Niagara Falls weekend and while browsing through a little boutique Lasting Impressions (near Chrysal beach) he found it and knew it was just my style. I loved it immediately!
I decided to wear it as a duster over jeans. I love dressing up denim for a rough and refined look or what I call rugged elegance, combining masculine and feminine.
Jeans were always boys’ clothes in my opinion when I was young. I didn’t even own a pair of jeans for the longest time. Whether casual or dressy, I like to wear something feminine when I wear jeans.
When we go on road trips, we stop to enjoy the journey whenever we like before arriving at our destination. Collingwood is about a two-hour drive from our house with several small towns along the way. We stopped in Elora and bought some delicious vegan baklava at a bakery.
Last time in Collingwood was for The Elvis Festival. There’s always time for some shopping to support local stores. We enjoyed a romantic dinner for two at a Thai restaurant on their private patio (delicious vegetable stir-fry served with rice noodles).
