At home and all across Canada, July 1st is a holiday where everyone has fun, gets together with family and friends and enjoys everything that this wonderful country has to offer. Parades, festivals, fireworks, food and fun comprise many Canada Day celebrations. Today I had the pleasure of introducing my new neighbour Carlotta to this special day. Living in Canada for only 2 years, she was unfamiliar with the history and background of the day but had a wonderful time as we shared the special festivities in Port Dover, Ontario, a wonderful lakeside community about 10 minutes from my home.
Of course, Canada Day wouldn't be the same without some red and white vintage to mark the day. I wore a 1970s red with white polka dot silky wiggle dress with a cute matching bolero jacket and a blue and red straw hat. Vintage 1980s Wayfarers topped it all off!
Happy Canada Day!
