those hummingbirds all in your hair
I just spent a week up in cottage country in Ontario where my grandfather lives full-time. It was the usual week of drinking morning tea on the porch while hummingbirds and chick-a-dees and goldfinches and grackles and blue jays and the occasional squirrel all duked it out over the bird feeders. I went out in the canoe with some family members, spent a lot of time reading old favourites on the dock, and revelled in my favourite summer purchase of the year, this playsuit from Q's Daydream. I was a bit worried that I would feel too revealed in it to wear out much, but I don't at all. The high-waisted skirt covers me up, the top is super flattering, and I love love love the pattern of little birds, (which is limited edition by the way, there are only two left). Anyway, major love affair on my part. I want to wear it every remaining day of summer, and the skirt will happily see me into Autumn as well. And of course I had to pair it with the bird necklace my sister got me for Christmas.
Also, check out the second to last picture of a deer swimming across the lake! I've never seen anything like it, and it was way out in the middle!
