Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  On Saturday, Justin and I decided to go to the Beaches Jazz Fest on the east end of Toronto.  The anticipated highlight for us was the Gourmet Food Truck Extravaganza, featuring the best food trucks the City has to offer.  We did our research and even pre-decided on which food trucks we wanted to eat at.  Mexican for me, Cuban for Justin, followed by some freshly squeezed lemonade for the both of us.  Sounded like a great plan . . . that is until we got there and realized that we had the wrong dates!  The Jazz Fest is running all week but the Food Trucks are only there this upcoming Tuesday and Wednesday!  Oh the disappointment!

 

We then remembered reading that a large stretch of the main road was to be closed off to vehicles, allowing for festival-goers to party in the streets, while listening to a different jazz band on every street corner.  We decided to walk the 2 km to the street party area.  Yet again to our surprise, upon arrival the road was wide open and there was not a jazz band in sight.  We checked our phones and quickly realized that we once again made a mistake on the dates!  The Street Fest is next weekend!  Two for two!

 

We felt as dumb as could be, but couldn’t help but laugh at ourselves.  We turned it into a positive and said we were on our “city adventure” since we were exploring many new-to-us neighborhoods of Toronto.   In total we walked over 11 km on Saturday (that’s 7 miles for my American friends).  Even with our silly mistakes, it was a fabulous day. How was your weekend?  Did you do anything exciting?

 

P.S. I’m linking up with Jane for her #thewaywewear series, featuring shorts this month.

    I spy your cute Coach bag that’s just perfect for festivals I got better acquainted with Coach and fell in love when I attended their event at Harrods on Thursday all here http://www.cleancutgoutchic.com/coach-at-harrods-event/

    love this look! Mint is one of my favorite shades, so I obviously die for that bag. I’ve been eyeing a pair of Loeffler Randall flats similar to the ones you’re wearing here – ankle straps are my favorite!

      Thanks Alyssa! Yes, I think a striped pair of shorts is a wardrobe must. They really match with almost everything! 🙂

    Loving this combo. So many sweet shades (mint & pale pink) but it doesn’t seem too girly. The mint accent bag really tops off the outfit. Thanks for linking up for #thewaywewear
