A Weekend In July

Wide brimmed hat from Urban Outfitters.
Our family cottage has been a very special place since I was little.  Growing up I would spend many of my Summer months here and it was always magical to me.  It was the place my cousins and I would play dress up, invent musical theatre performances for the adults, swim, dance and daydream.  The older I get, the more nostalgic I feel for these wonderful times.  When I'm here I still feel like I can play make believe, I'm still always barefoot and my days here are definitely inspiring.  It's always quiet and calm and on a hot July day you can hear the crickets chirping in the grass.  It's one of my favourite places on earth.  This past weekend was very special because my cousin Morgan made a surprise last minute trip from Vancouver and we were able to spend a couple of days here together, like old times. 
My beautiful cousin Morgan!
Local peaches and cream corn, eggplant and peaches.
 We ate lots of amazing food including gorgeous eggplant, peaches and cream corn, zucchini and fresh Ontario peaches, strawberries and raspberries.  A charcuterie of cured meats and amazing cheeses was definitely a highlight, paired with Cava and local crab apple and peach jellies.  
Charcuterie, cheeses and Cava...the perfect combination!
When I'm at the cottage I like my clothing to be lightweight and flowy, especially when it's a beautiful hot and sunny weekend like the one that just passed.  This fabulous floppy straw hat (now on sale at Urban Outfitters) gave me some shade from the sun.  I paired it with this lovely mid length dress from Free People and a loose, semi-sheer mint coloured mini dress from Urban Outfitters (also now on sale).  See below to shop the look!

  1. I do really enjoy your novel and I'm happy every single time, when you write a new chapter. But I always read only a part of the chapter. And then I'm waiting for another one. I just want to read them fully, when you end up your novel fully. But while I have only small parts, I'll spend time on and will be waiting enjoying good views of sexy bodies. If you're waiting too, follow me. Let's make our time run faster.
