We visited the Westmount Greenhouse a couple of weeks ago, one of our favourite winter getaways here in Montreal. I needed to take some photos for my
I prepared for the
( which is live today). We just love to be surrounded by all the exotic trees and flowers. The kids have fun looking for all the fallen flowers and make bouquets. They also enjoy watching the fishes and turtles in the pond. Here are some photos I took during our visit and if you are in Montreal, I strongly recommend you pass by this lovely place. It is not the Botanical Gardens or anything touristy, just a low key greenhouse with good vibes and a peaceful environment. There are more photos on the
website, as well as a step by step tutorial for making the dress MissE is wearing.
If you are interested in making this dress for your daughter or perhaps even yourself, check out the
for the easy tutorial and step by step instructions. All you will need are 7 rectangles, a little bit of elastic and sewing lot's of straight lines. Perfect for warmer weather or as a swimsuit cover up and super quick to sew too.
I think I am longing for the warm summer months and they can't seem to be coming quick enough! Today might be the coldest day of the year and so I thought it would only be appropriate to talk about some beautiful swimsuits! I have got to keep finding ways to keep my soul happy. I am so happy I discovered the wonderful world of Gray Benko Photography, her photos are full of life and color and happy moments and the bonus part is that I got to discover some amazing swimwear by Marysia Swim through Gray's website.

Please keep in mind that this is not perfect in any way and I am learning along the way, for example my first mistake was shooting vertically, the second is that my editing process of the photos and the film aren't the same and lastly, next time I will be shooting video I will keep filming a little longer past the moment to give myself more leeway when editing.
As much as I love capturing just that one moment in a photograph, there is something very special about capturing your kids on film. I am excited to make many more of these and explore different possibilities.
Thanks again LADIDA for providing both kids with their awesome tops and being the inspiration for this little video.
I am starting a new series: PETIT STYLE with weekly tips & tricks on how to style your kids wardrobes. It will be different every week but basically it will be just some little things I do when I shop and dress for both my kids. So shopping tips, making clothes last, how to wear hand me downs, mix and matching etc... I hope you will enjoy this! And if you have any request, let me know!
