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.
