lilac lovin'.

I looooooove lilacs! 

They smell amazing, they look amazing; they are just amazing!

So, when I heard that there was a Lilac Festival in Warkworth (just Northwest of Belleville, ON), I knew I had to check it out!

We didn't get to the festival until very close to the end of the first day - vendors were packing up -, but we were able to take a nice leisurely walk alongside the most beautiful creek that was surrounded by lush green grass, hills of trees, and some lilac bushes!

This was our first visit to Warkworth and it was an extremely short one (due to the thunderstorm that we just missed!) but I know that we will be visiting again very soon and a lot more often! Seriously, the cutest little town in a sort of valley of trees! I am in love!

And obviously I had to get some photos of myself, haha! I am the type of person who when she hears the plan, she thinks to herself, "will there be photo opportunities?" and then proceeds to get herself somewhat presentable. 

I swear I am not high-maintenance (says every person is probably high-maintenance)! I just like to feel confident! And my husband won't let me take nice photos of him, so someone needs to step up to the plate, right?! Haha!

My super cute jumpsuit (I am SO in love with red!) is from Garage Clothing :)

Question: What is your favourite flower? Mine is a toss-up between Lilacs and Peonies! Oh! And I love love LOVE Ranunculus! Ugh! They are all so beautiful! 

cheap dress and hairy legs.

Probably my favourite title for a post thus far! Hah!

I luuuurrrrrrvve a good deal - says every normal person. Seriously, who doesn't like paying less for something? If you don't, why? Haha!

I digress.

Whenever I am feeling like I need (want) to add something fresh to my wardrobe, I hit the one place that maybe a lot of people don't think about. No, not Value Village - that's my spot for random household knick-knacks. And no, not any other thrift store you are thinking of. I go to.... Winners! Yay! We did it!

Yes, Winners always has what I don't need and everything that I want or didn't know that I wanted. I get a lot of my 'filler' pieces and active wear at Winners. This dress? Winners!! How much you may be asking? $25.00. Yup! And it made me feel like a moody chick meets dark Little House on the Prairie. I never buy dresses this long - I have a strictly 'above the knees to make myself appear taller' policy when it comes to dresses - but this dress broke that policy! Now, I have a new love for long dresses and their ability to hide my pasty and probably unshaven legs in the Summer! (that was a nice way of saying 'hairy', just so you know).

Okay, I think that I am done with this very rambly and odd conversation about a cheap dress and my hairy legs.

If you gather anything from this post, it should be to check out Winners! They are constantly adding different pieces and allow you to freshen up your wardrobe without breaking the bank!

And no, this is not sponsored. I freaken' wish!
