The Mr. and I get married in 5 weeks. There is still a lot to do. When you try to wedge a wedding in between buying and selling houses and – well – life, it’s a little nuts. We realized that we are so busy ticking things off a list, that we were not really enjoying the process. We decided to remedy that this weekend.
Saturday, we went into Big Smoke – aka Toronto – for some shopping on Bloor Street. We had lunch at The Windsor Arms hotel, which is a favourite of mine. It’s much less busy than a lot of the hotels in the area and is great for a quiet lunch. Since we were in the fancypants city, I decided to pull out one of the big guns in my arsenal – my Dior new lock bag. It’s an oldie but goody.
We are generally in a climate of abstemiousness because of moving houses and life, but The Mr. wanted to get me a wedding present. I’d had my eye on a necklace for the wedding day and nudged him toward the Van Cleef & Arpels counter at Birks.
We had success!
After trying on a number of pieces, I decided on the vintage Alhambra necklace in mother of pearl. It will make a great everyday piece too.
Saturday night, we had a few friends over for the Mr.’s birthday. We partied like it was 1999.
