We've been experiencing a crazy heat wave in Ontario so I thought I'd share some swimsuit inspirations since all I can think about is going for a swim to cool off. I can never get enough of vintage swimsuits! I love the style and I think they're super flattering for all body types! I'm so glad this style is trendy again!

Nails: Iron Man

blog wanderlust whimsy megan julep iron man nails nail polish nail art nail varnish red gold silver tony stark
I've noticed that during the summer I have a lot more patience when it comes to painting my nails in creative ways. And since I don't work at Disney anymore, I can really go wild with colours and designs! The inspiration for these nails was a combination of my love for this gorgeous red colour from Julep and my love for everybody's favourite 'genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist' Tony Stark, aka Iron Man.

I decided to keep the design simple though. I've seen Iron Man nails done in the past where people will paint the design of his suit on their nails and his face mask on their thumb, but I went for a more simplified and abstract version. That way I can keep my fangirling at a classy level. haha!

What I Wore: Madeline

blog wanderlust whimsy megan outfit ootd what I wore modcloth red white and cute blue yellow hive and honey how soon is wow

In an old house in Paris covered by vines, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines.
They left the house at half past nine. 2 straight lines, in rain or shine. The smallest one...was Madeline.

So... funny story about what happened on the day these photos were taken:

In the morning I had received a few texts from Greg who was acting especially sappy and excitable that day. It was a very strange thing because he is never all these things at once so I thought something might be up. He had asked me if I wanted to go to Cullen Gardens with him and told me I should bring my camera. At first I was like ok, no big deal. We're just going for a walk like we always do. But the way he was acting had me suspicious. So then I started thinking of what he could have planned and I started to think: Oh man, I wonder if he's going to propose (I've been watching a lot of bridal shows on TLC when nothing else is on so that's why my mind went there.) Anyways, I threw on a nice outfit and we headed to the park.

During the car ride I decided to ask Greg why he was acting so strange that day. I mean, being in a good mood isn't what had me suspicious. It was the fact that when Greg is REALLY excited about something secretive, he has a hard time hiding it. Turns out he was just in a good mood and the good mood plus the uber sappiness was a coincidence. I told him about my crazy notion about him proposing and he laughed but felt a little bad for leading me on (seriously he wasn't. Like I said before I've watched one too many episodes of Say Yes To The Dress).

Anyways, when we got to the park we decided to take a few outfit photos since I already had my camera and was wearing a cute outfit. The best part however was when we looked over at one of the main buildings and saw the writing on the wall from what I assume was an engagement photoshoot. I pointed it out to Greg and died of laughter because of our earlier conversation. What were the odds of that happening?! It was the funniest thing and we both got a good laugh out of it. I then made Greg take my picture in front of it as a joke because I couldn't get over how funny it was.

So yes, that is the story of my non-existant proposal :)

And if you're wondering where I got the title for the outfit, I give full credit to Bere because she left a comment on my instagram saying this dress with these shoes reminded her of Madeline. And I completely agree. Plus I adored that show as a child.

What I Wore: Cool Colours on a Warm Day

blog wanderlust whimsy megan what I wore ootd outfit teal pourple skirt thrifted thrifting joe fresh modcloth little black bag
As you could probably guess from yesterday's post, this is what I wore to the Black Creek Pioneer Village. It was a hot summer day and so I needed something cool and comfortable to wear since we would be doing a lot of walking. Unfortunately I had been running behind on doing laundry so this outfit is a result of having limited options. Nevertheless, I like how it turned out so I'll definitely wear it again!

I'm really excited how well my nails turned out too! I find myself more attracted and patient when it comes to creating nail designs in the summer. It's fun to go crazy with bright colours! ...My ring's a real hoot too! ;)

Black Creek Pioneer Village

blog wanderlust whimsy megan black creek pioneer village
One day Greg and I made a bucket list of all the fun places we want to explore this summer. Originally we were going to check out the new Renaissance Festival that just opened up in Woodstock but we decided that that kind of event is better suited for a group of people. So instead we crossed off another historical place, the Black Creek Pioneer Village which is up in Toronto.

I couldn't believe how many kids were running around the place in costume! I think they were all relatives of the men in the reenactment battle, but still, it was a super cute thing to see.

What was really cool was the special Father's Day weekend event where people from all over Canada, America and even Korea flew in to reenact the Revolutionary War. We had never seen a reenactment battle before so that was interesting. Though it was kind of funny and weird when you would hear the leader of the group whisper to his members "Ok after they shoot you're going to fall down and pretend to die". It kinda ruined the surprise, but it was still neat to see.
