Checkered Sunset

If I had to choose a favourite time of day, I would choose sunset. It's like going to a fireworks show, you know you are going to see some amazing colours and it only lasts so long.

My started early, even though I am on vacation, so I could head into Toronto for the Estee Lauder event. Luckily the day before I stopped at Reitman's and picked up this perfect summer to fall transitional blouse! I spent the morning (after a two hour commute) in The 6 and headed home after checking out a few shops in the Fashion District (I left with a Blue Jays tank top. Not very exciting). 

Once I was home I got into my usual rhythm, clean the kitchen, do some laundry, play with the dog, make dinner, watch a little tv and then off to drive The Youngest to his music lessons. This day marked the last of the late night lessons and because AMH is on holidays as well, we were able to go together, which of course means I roped him into taking photos at the park nearby!  

We got to the park at just the right time. The sun was setting and gave the everything a wonderful glow, especially our vintage 1970 Montego that we drove! Always assume if I'm driving anywhere this summer, it's in the Montego. The whole family just loves the car and could not be happier to have her with us. She's a Henderson right down to her license plate

This outfit combo of cropped jeans and a 3/4 sleeve worked in my favour because it wasn't particularly hot. This summer has been a weird one, we go from blazing hot, to fall like temperatures, to down right cold. I am a big fan of the fall like temperatures (extreme hot and I are not friends) so this outfit kept me covered but also cool. The blouse is thin so when a warm breeze did roll in, I was just fine.
