It’s here, it’s finally here!!
Hands down, summer is my favourite season. I love everything about this time of year. The fashion is fun, the weather is perfect, and the produce is fresh and gorgeous! The season really does fly by, so it’s important to take full advantage of summer while it’s here.
For many of us with full time office jobs, this means we need to make the most out of evenings and weekends. I spent this past Friday night at an outdoor parking lot party. For those of you who are Lee Brice fans, you know why I couldn’t get this song out of my head. It was literally, a parking lot party. My country-hating co-workers may have judged me a bit when I played the song for them that day, but haters gonna hate!
I got up early the next morning and went down to the St. Lawrence Market. It’s one of the largest farmer’s markets in the world, and a big tourist attraction in Toronto. It was a really interesting experience to be in a market that large on a Saturday morning. It was a tough decision, but I decided to buy some raspberries, heirloom tomatoes and figs. I’d never seen raspberries that perfect before! While I was waiting my turn to pay, a chef from a local high end hotel was shopping at the same stand, and he was absolutely loving it. An exact quote from him was “this is why I wake up in the morning!” It was just really awesome to see his excitement for the fresh ingredients, but then again, I’m quite the foodie myself.
Since it was a gorgeous summer day, I felt like a dress was an appropriate outfit choice. I figured if I threw on my trusty denim vest, I’d have myself an outfit. It was the perfect way to transform a dress that would typically work better for the office or an evening function into something more “daytime-friendly.”
