Best Laid Plans

Wool coat? No label, thrifted Jeans? Calvin Klein Outlet Boots? Joe Fresh Shirt? French Connection, Winners Faux fur neck warmer? American Eagle

This weekend Matt and I decided to go up to Simcoe to see the Christmas lights display. We haven't been there in a while and unless they changed it up, I remember the display not being particularly overwhelming, but it just seemed like a festive thing to do. I figured we could sip hot chocolate as we meandered around hand-in-hand and I could live-tweet our adorableness. I'm kidding. I don't live my life in order to have an interesting twitter stream... I live my life in order to have an interesting Instagram feed (are you following me yet? myeditblog... I'm fascinating).
On the way to Simcoe we stopped at one of Matt's work sites to explore the area because it was beautiful (see photos) and we got sidetracked by a plethora of good antique markets. Then we found a local pub and had dinner, after which I randomly decided that we should actually go to the theatre and watch a movie. I told Matt he wasn't allowed to fall asleep during the movie. I only woke him up once. We never quite made it to see the lights that night. But we made an honest effort at festivity and it was a really great night... I'll try set up a romantic stroll with hot chocolate soon, if only so I can Instagram it...

i love your wool dick tracy coat. you look like an expensive diva here. out in the wilderness. your failure at being festive sounds like a very fun evening.

I want that neckwarmer thingy. is it old or new?

briannelee said...

That sounds like a perfect night!

Love your jacket and fur scarf.

These photos are amazing. The composition, lighting, depth of field (I pretend I know what I'm talking about) are perfect. It also helps that the model knows how to work it :) Love the red pants!

Even though you didn't do what you planned, it sounds like a great night! Me and my bf have been trying to make it to NYC to do all the touristy stuff, but haven't made it yet. Maybe tomorrow though!

Love that faux fur scarf, it looks so cozy!

Bri said...

Well even though you didn't make it to the lights it sounds as though you had a lovely evening, and your photos show that it was certainly a lovely evening to be out and about! Love the fur collar you're rocking here, I keep forgetting about mine!

Can we talk about the high pony?? I think you managed to combine several different eras here, so you in fact, look timeless :)

CessOviedo said...

Misia-Waterford is so pretty! I love all those antique barns... we actually made it to Simcoe for dinner (blue elephant?) so that makes the fcat that we didn't check the lights even more pathetic...

Liking the ponytail!

hannahstiff said...

those booties are fab and the fur necklet is wonderful! So glad it's not thrifted so I can actually buy one! XO

Sounds like you had a lovely evening, festive or not! I wonder if my cousin in Simcoe has seen the lights yet - I didn't know there was a "Christmas panorama" until just now.

susiemaeday said...

kate said...

Your whole outfit is great, but the ponytail is my favorite part!
