Sometimes in life, you have to wear pants. I count on summer to be warm enough to wear dresses and comfortable skirts, but sometimes, summer lets me down. Tonight was one of those nights. My dinner club friends planned to meet on a lovely summer patio for cocktails and dinner, expecting a balmy evening and instead got overcast chilly weather. What’s a girl to do?
I threw a scarf in my bag, ‘natch, and good thing I did because we “toughed” it out on the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald patio and enjoyed a chilly but lovely evening!
If you find yourself on a chilly summer patio, follow my lead and wear a bright colour, a warm blazer and a nice scarf. And don’t be afraid to ask for a blanket!
