magine a field full of colourful flowers, as far as the eye can see. I can’t believe that was my weekend! On Sunday, we drove about 40 minutes from Toronto and discovered a gorgeous farm, with fruit trees, berries and adorable pumpkin patches. But the highlight for me, was a field full of dahlias in all shapes, colours and sizes. This magical place is Andrews Scenic Acres and it’s definitely worth a visit soon, while the flowers are still out.

It was a sweltering day, almost 40 degrees with the humidity, but we paid the $5 entrance fee (free on weekdays!) and borrowed some clippers to pick some dahlias. We ended up making over 4 bouquets with different themes! We only cut 15 stems, and it only cost about $12 for everything which was a complete steal. PRO TIP: come to Andrews Scenic Acres with a bucket in your car so you can put the flowers in water right away! We had to drive to a nearby dollar store to pick up an emergency mop bucket to save these beauties.

For our flower-picking adventure at Andrews Scenic Acres, I wanted to wear something elegant, feminine and retro. I found this green and white-striped dress from Zara (similar striped dress here), which has fun puffed sleeves and an A-line shape. I belted it with my skinny Gucci Marmont belt, to add some glamour to the country look. I also wore a fun green top-handle Whipster bag from Aldo Accessories, that reminds me of the Gucci collection too. I love how it has those fun pearls. I kept jewelry simple and wore studs c/o Pandora and a charm bracelet c/o Thomas Sabo Charm Club. For shoes, I wore simple tan sandals from Clarks, but would recommend closed toe or washable shoes since the fields get dusty.
