Yesterday I stopped by Rock Ford Plantation to take a few photos for the blog. Since it was a Sunday evening I knew it would mostly be abandoned since all the guided tours stop earlier in the day. Well, all the people were long gone but I wouldn't really say it was abandoned! I was treated to quite a show as the does and their fawns wandered down from the hill to feast on the ripening apples hanging from the branches in the small orchard that sits on the property. If you look super close you may be able to spot a couple under the trees in the shot above. I hung out with the resident house cat on the porch for a bit while more and more ran across the field and gathered under the trees. At one point I counted 15 in all... 12 does and 3 fawns. My photos certainly don't do these graceful creatures any justice!

As for the outfit, this lovely blouse is my latest acquisition from Francesca's shop . I literally gasped out loud when I tried it on. It's that wonderful. My only regret is that it's so delicate I can't wear it every single day without risking its ultimate demise. Oh, and the shoes! I finally got my hands on a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Splendids. I don't normally wear heels this high, but I have to say I feel like these make every outfit about a hundred times better. Expect to see them bunches... especially once I can wear them with thick tights this fall.

This blouse is so perfect and it's equally hard to get my hands on one of these beauties. Nothing compares to real silk chiffon.....ahhhhh.

I love your photos always. You wear a lot of vintage clothes and your photos create a perfect mood for those beauties to be displayed.

Love from Toronto
