One day when we were in Canada, we decided to do a day trip from Montreal to Quebec City. It ended up being a long 3 hour drive, but 100% worth it. Old Quebec City is super quaint and fun to explore.
Keep reading to hear about my unplanned purchase …
When we planned our trip, the weather report for Quebec was very mild and pleasant, but we happened to be there for a little heat wave. I found that my dresses and skirts were my best bet for beating the heat and humidity. I only brought two though, so after I wore those, I popped into an H&M and found this adorable and versatile shirt dress. Isn’t is cute? I can wear it just like this, or with a belt, or as a summer duster over jeans or black pants. For a last minute, spur of the moment purchase, I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of it. Plus you know … not like leopard is SO in right now or anything!!
Old Quebec City is very charming, clean, and full of history. It has cobblestone streets, outdoor cafes, historic old buildings, quaint shops, a scenic port … one pretty thing to look at after another! While we were there several movie people were scouting out locations.
I want to go back and when I do, I’d love to stay at the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac! It’s a luxury hotel built in the late 1800’s and looks like a castle. It’s amazing! Many famous people have stayed here including Queen Elizabeth, Alfred Hitchcock, Charles Lindberg, Winston Churchill, Franklin D Roosevelt, and Ronald Regean.
If you missed it, be sure to check out my post about the Thierry Mugler Exhibit in Montreal. Now, that’s FA-SHUN!!
And I hope everyone got to read my collaboration with Helzberg Diamonds!
If you follow me on social, you know that yesterday I sprained my ankle. It’s a grade 2 sprain and I have to wear a boot and use crutches. I’m trying to think of ways to make that the least bit fashionable. Stay tuned! 😁
