Doors Open Ottawa

 Earlier this month, B and I kicked off a weekend date day with a visit to Doors Open Ottawa. Doors Open is a free annual event where dozens of buildings around the city open up to visitors for behind-the-scenes tours and visits. This year, we checked off a local coffee roastery, the Supreme Court of Canada, and a posh, members-only social club with spectacular views of Parliament.

Boyfriend jeans and a casual white tee delivered casual comfort on a sunny early summer day, and acted as a canvas for accessories like a military-style vest, a floaty scarf and dangly earrings. Low-heeled suede booties were ideal for spending a couple of hours on my feet.
