[ peach skirt remix (english tea party) ]

My family and I visited the Thousand Islands this past weekend and – on the way there – stopped over at my aunt and uncle’s place in Kingston. Their house is by the lake with breathtakingly-gorgeous views in every direction. Running around their park-esque backyard with their dog, Amur, felt almost dreamlike. I remixed the silk maxi skirt for the Thousand Islands boat tour and our visit to the Boldt Castle. The peachy-cream pastels, flowy fabrics, headwear, and the silhouette of this look is reminiscent of the English tea party scene. And considering that, when I was little, I wanted to be the Queen of England for a living, I loved wearing this ladylike ensemble.

There was this adorable five-year-old girl on the boat that was completely enamoured with me because she was convinced that she was in the presence of a real princess. Every time I walked by her she would impulsively profess her love for my “princessness,” which was insanely cute and sort of awkward at the same time. I guess she figured that since we were all going to visit a castle she might get to see some royalty. I didn’t want to be the cause of any disappointment so I told her that we’re both princesses, which made her beam with joy. Oh, those little ones need so little.

What I’m wearing:

  • Silk maxi skirt from “Club Monaco”
  • Chiffon top by “Marciano”
  • Straw hat by “Holt Renfrew”
  • Gold strappy sandals by “Sergio Rossi”
  • Crystal heart ribbon necklace
  • 2 chunky chain rings by “Luc Kieffer”
  • Sunglasses by “Missoni”

  1. Have you seen the Charlie Brown musical? There's an entire scene dedicated to Lucy's desire to be queen. I guess you have something in common!

    1. Oh the dog is my aunt's but I do absolutely adore their collie. He is amazing. I'm crazy about dogs in general so I loved hanging with him.
      Love Lida
