Niagara On The Lake - Part 1

Shorts and top H&M, sneakers Adidas, bag unknown (Winners), earrings JLO (old), sunglasses (Aldo), watch Michael Kors, bracelets Joe Fresh


When I said I was only going to post when I had some free time and really had the urge to do so, I was not joking. And let me tell you, the time flew faster than I thought it would. After all, it’s already August. But I’d rather do this when I have the urge to do it, rather than because I should. I love doing this blog, and anything I post should be done out of love too.
Those who follow me on Instagram, have already seen this outfit, in bits and pieces. Here I share some more pictures of it. These pictures were taken couple of weeks ago. July 11th to be exact, my birthday. I had an absolutely beautiful birthday weekend. I could not wish for more. I spent two days in Niagara on the Lake and a night at Niagara Falls. Saturday was a day dedicated to wine tasting, bike rides and absolute relaxation. I am so happy we did the wine tasting and visiting wineries on a bike. We got to really enjoy and appreciate the scenery. I always feel such a sense of calm and pure happiness when I ride a bike. I only discovered how much I enjoy it last year when I purchased my bike. Before that, I had not ridden one since I was a kid.
The only little issue I encountered was that they did not serve any food in the first couple of wineries we visited. They were prepping for weddings and were not serving food to other guest. Well, I only had a light breakfast…so needless to say, after the second winery….wine got to my head. Hot sun didn’t help my state either. Luckily third one was nearby so I ingested (almost literally) a whole bunch of cheese, bread and grapes. Things got better after that heheeh. I learned something I didn’t know before. Even though I am a big red wine lover, I preferred Niagara’s white wines, whether Riesling or Chardonnay. I came home with a bottle from each winery, and they were all white! Who knew?!  Some of the wineries we visited are Chateau de Charme, Coyote’s Run, Ravine, Five Rows and Colanery Estate. Each winery had its charm. The last one was absolutely beautiful. For a moment I thought I found myself in wine country somewhere in Spain.
As for the outfit, it had to be something comfortable and light, for a bike ride in the sun. I wore a light bright top and shorts from H&M. I also chose to wear sneakers, for ease of riding. Accessories however made the outfit. I especially love these sunglasses from Aldo.

Ciao!
