I’m so excited to finally announce and talk about the Mapleview Garden Party that I did the other week with some other AMAZING bloggers.
We had the opportunity to partner up with Mapleview Centre, which is Burlington, ON greatest shopping mall. They have just about everything you could need and the fact that it is on my daily drive home from work makes it super dangerous, but in a good way.
Stay tuned to the end of this post to see how YOU can find a Mapleview Shipping Spree with one of us!
Mapleview Garden Party | The Shopping Trip
We each headed to Mapleview Centre to pick out an outfit for our Garden Party. With a Starbucks coffee in hand, off I went in and out of all the amazing stores that Mapleview Centre has to offer. I went to my normal ‘hit’ spots first, including H&M, The Bay, Forever 21 and Zara. Expanding my horizons a bit I checked out a few stores that I don’t normally do on a regular visit like Artizia and Guess. Also visited a newer store Denise who has some incredible dresses in case you were looking, like the one before from my Instagram page.
In the end and after a few hours of shopping, I settled on a lace dress from Zara. What I liked about it was how simple it was and the fact that it was something that I would wear again. It also didn’t look too wedding like, since we were going for a white-tone look.
I had already seen these simple floral headbands for Forever 21 when I was looking for dresses, so I headed back there to pick one up. You can’t go wrong when it’s only $6!
Lastly, the bag! I only really looked one place for bags as I knew that I liked Call it Spring’s bags, and shoes…well just everything. They did not fail as I picked up this super cute floral clutch that also doubles as a bag since there is a chain that you can hide inside. We all know I like muli-functional items.
Mapleview Garden Party | The Photoshoot
We were lucky to get such a beautiful night in Burlington to shoot. We found a super cute venue that is usually used for weddings.
There were so many different spots at this location that we could shoot. We planned to do a few different set ups such as tea, umbrellas and some regular standing photos.
Make sure you check out all the other ladies blogs to see more photos from the shoot. It was so much fun and I can’t wait to do it again!
