Summer in The6ix

Summer in Toronto is just the greatest!

We have everything….

Live Music!  Plays and Performances!  Dancing! Sailing! Spas! Shopping!

Outdoor movies! Cultural Festivals! Foods from around the world!

Annnnnnd all of these things are usually FREE and are walking distance from each other!  No car required! ❤

There have been many wonderful fun-filled days this summer – but the most memorable was an unexpected Saturday afternoon that turned into a full day-o-fun!!!

It began with a play – an interactive dark comedy – THE WEDDING – put on by an independant theatre company: The Lighthouse Troupe.  As audience members aka the wedding guests, we were encouraged to dress nicely, sign-in at a guest registry, find their table, and interact with the various members of the wedding party, much like a real reception.   You know me – any reason to get dressed up is my kind of event! 🙂

After the show… we walked into Harbourfront for their Spicy Food Festival and found a free jazz concert which naturally led to impromptu  lindyhopping on grass!

A Large Lady Lindy Hopping – yup!  That’s me! 🙂

After that we walked along Queens Quay to Sugar Beach for Sail-in Cinema’s screening of The Princess Bride  …

❤ My most favourite movie ❤

Since we arrived kinda late … we found a patch of sand for our blankets way in the back sadly, making the Sail-in screen teeny-tiny.

Plus, it seems we were too late for the courtesy popcorn and back-rests that many around us seemed to have nabbed.

Le sigh…

Our sad seats on the sand, way in the back of Sugar Beach…before the win~INCONCEIVABLE! 😉

THEN….the event announcer asked for a family-of-4 who would/could potentially win a fabulous prize for answering a single movie trivia question.

When they failed…we managed to flag him down and I provided the CORRECT answer… which won us seats on a sail boat to watch the movie!!!

And there were handsome sailors too! #bonus 😛

Knowing useless Princess Bride trivia won us seats on Canada’s Fastest Sail boat! Boom!!!

THIS was our view for the movie … just waiting for the sun to set so that the movie could start!!!

Floating around on Canada’s fastest sail boat, eating popcorn with sailors and watching the greatest movie ever …

A perfect ending to a wonderfully unexpected summer day!

Curious about what I’m wearing?

How I Got The Look:

Dress and crop-top from Forever21+; Shoes from Winners

How would you describe THE Perfect Summer Day?  What would it include? What would you do? What would you wear?

Tell me about it in the comments section below. 🙂

Special thanks to Ellie for capturing those dancing pictures!  And to Five for the pictures on the boat!

Thanks for reading, xo
