Just a bit of a warning, this is the first in a few wardrobe diary posts that I’ll be doing from our Halifax and Montreal trip in September. Sure it is a bit late but I am constantly running behind on outfit posts. You guys don’t mind though, right?
So, packing for our trip was a bit of a challenge. We were going to be gone for 10 days and I only wanted to bring a medium sized suitcase with enough extra room for purchases. This was one of the two dresses that got the most wear and I think they both will become travelling staples. I picked them up on sale at Winners and let me tell you that these little numbers are amazing! You can roll them into a tiny ball and when you want to wear them just give a shake, pair with a petticoat and they become nice and fluffy, perfect for twirling.
This particular outfit is from our first full day in Halifax. After breakfast, we made a wrong turn and discovered a little boutique called Pretty Things. I went in thinking it would be the typical store that only went up to a size 12 maybe 14 but I was wonderfully surprised that they had an entire plus sized section! I was in heaven. If you are in Halifax I would highly recommend this store. Their selection is quite large, the store is beautifully decorated, and the staff were all incredibly sweet and helpful. I actually picked up two dresses but I have not worn either yet. I’ll be sure to post photos when I do.
Oh and the extra bonus…turns out that Molly from Hobo with a Shotgun works there so Gary had someone to hang out with while I made my decision. It was a wonderful day filled with old friends and new in a city that completely captured our heart.
