Hydrangeas and Autumn Leaves

Ruth’s garden

The photos above were taken in my dear friend Ruth’s amazing garden. She gave me a bunch of hydrangeas and I put them in vases in every room.

Beret: Zack’s (Canadian women’s apparel)
T-shirt: thrifted – made in Canada
Hoodie: Roxy (over 15 years old)
Heart necklace: Little shop Whidbey Island, Seattle
Houndstooth pants: Maggie’s clothing exchange
Vegan Purse: Marshalls
Non-leather booties: Pre-loved
Hydrangeas: Gift from my dear friend Ruth from Church

These pre-loved houndstooth pants have a little stretch and are as comfortable as jeans but more style! Houndstooth will never be passé and always a classic. Do you have houndstooth in your wardrobe?

One of my favourite things about autumn is the glorious hydrangeas, and another is autumn leaves of gold and crimson.

“Autumn Leaves” echos in my mind as the majestic trees are garbed in gold and crimson. A walk on a little country road is a pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Kincardine.

      Thanks a bunch! It’s a lovely time of year, but there’s a bittersweetness to this season because the days grow shorter and winters in Ontario are too long and cold.



  3. Hello Carmen! Please send on my huge compliments to Ruth on her amazing garden. It is truly a natural wonderland. Hydrangeas are a beautiful flower , I am glad you got enough for each room in your house. Houndstooth is a classic look and you pull it off with your whole outfit really well. love the t-shirt and hoodie with the pants. I have to admit I do not have houndstooth myself !!!! I will have to look around. Thanks for the beautiful Autumn photos from Kincardine. Have a nice weekend, Terri xo.

      Thank you so much! I was happy to get these houndstooth pants at Maggie’s clothing exchange, it’s a pattern I’ve loved since my first houndstooth coat as a teenager and a never get tired of. 🙂
