Swedish Summer

DSC_3128Sometimes it’s necessary for me to get out of the city. I do love Toronto (like really really do) but my mind and body often crave the slowness, fresh air, and silence that north of the city has to offer. Luckily for me, Ryan’s family lives in Barrie, in a beautiful home with ample outdoor space and a very short walk to the waterfront and forest. Ryan and I made the most of our weekend by doing pretty well nothing, which felt perfect. And I was excited to get this Family Affairs, Swedish Summer dress in the mail from Nina about a week or two before. It was the perfect dress for this particular day – lightweight, summery and fun. It’s one of those dresses that doesn’t really need styling – the print is so awesome and the cut is so cute, it’s a piece that can stand on it’s own, in my opinion. I like over the top and complicated sometimes, but I also really like simplicity, as long as I stay true to my silly, quirky nature.

I hope you all had a very lovely weekend. Mine isn’t over just yet, but I’ll keep this short and sweet because I have many new items to photograph for the shop (!!!), cleaning (ugh!) and  grocery shopping to do. So, bye for now!
