This year has been so unpredictable and not usual in so many ways due to the Covid-19 pandemic but that doesn’t mean a vacation is impossible. Even more: it’s necessary. Usually I travel abroad for two months during the summer for family or business. But going overseas wasn’t an option this year so I decided to spend a one-week vacation closer to home at Mont-Tremblant before the kids return to school in September. And my plan worked out perfectly. The weather was excellent in the second week of August, sunny but not too hot in the mountains or around the lake. I always thought women look more attractive when they wear dresses. Whatever your age or body type, you can always find the right dress to fit you perfectly. Being myself a dressy woman I wear dresses all year long, even during winter time indoor or outdoor when weather permits. One of my favorite bloggers had once said, renting dresses for traveling is a travel blogger's best-kept secret! And it's true, but not just for travel bloggers, but for any woman who loves wearing quality outfits without spending a fortune. A good friend of mine recommended me to try renting from Beyond the Runway a Canadian company with a good reputation and a large selection of designer dresses. Checking their website I was so excited to browse a huge and diversified offer, exactly what I was looking for! Choosing seven dresses (VIP members only) instead of four was the right choice for what I had in mind Now let me share this one day one dress (#onedayonedress) exciting experience with you. On our day of arrival by the time we got to the hotel it was early evening. We took a short break and went to the restaurant directly. As an opener I wore this Scandinavia One Shoulder Ruffle Accent Dress for dinner. (By the way, usually I do not buy off-shoulder dresses, but since they gave me so many options, I was seeking something different and uncommon that I have never tried before.) Scandinavia One Shoulder Ruffle Accent Dress Next came the canoe trip day when wearing a dress is not possible for safety reasons. It was so exciting paddling a canoe along the river for almost four hours! To bring even more excitement a heavy rain shower caught us and we were all completely wet before we reached the destination. What a ride! I went through a similar adventure a few years ago, when we drove from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, in the middle of the desert road, there came a big storm with sand and rain mixing in the air, the road was even broken for a while due to the water coming down from the mountains. We had to pull off the road till the storm faded away but soon after the sun came back shining. Getting ready for a good dinner in this Two Pears Ruffled Floral Dress. Two Pears Ruffled Floral Dres Day three was meant for shopping. Our hotel was located in the middle of the picturesque Pedestrian Village surrounded by restaurants and stores with lively streets and chic boutiques. We had a very good brunch wearing this Anna Sui Sweetheart's Kiss Chiffon Dress.

Although I have no meetings to attend nor meet any business people, I still wanted to pack a work wear dress. A Fit and Flare dress is a safe choice for many body types. Quite figure flattering, the black and white combination is a smart alternative too for many women, especially when you are not sure what to wear. I was drawn to this Two Pears Short Sleeve Belted Fit & Flare Dress. Two Pears Short Sleeve Belted Fit & Flare Dress The fifth day: pleasant cruise on Lake Tremblant enjoying the cool breeze. Again I usually do not buy green a lot since my favorite colors are purple and blue. But why not try a bolder look with this Stevie May Jade Valentine Mini? Stevie May Jade Valentine Mini The sixth day was for gaming - having fun playing the Escape Room for the first time. I can tell you that this game is good for all ages from kids to adults and it proves that adults are not necessarily better than kids. Pool time in the afternoon. This hotel (condos managed by a 4-star hotel) has the best pool I've ever seen. I would like to come back again just for the pool. It is quite big but due to the Covid-19, there is a limit of 10 people only. The water is clean, warm yet not very deep - very safe for kids and for not-so-good-swimmers like me. The best thing is that I've got a chance to wear this Free People Adela Slip Dress to have a walk. Free People Adela Slip Dress On the seventh day we checked out. Before leaving, I've got some time to relax and enjoy a coffee on the spacious balcony with a good view of the mountains and lakes with the morning sun shining on my face. Taking a break from work and daily routine it’s always a good idea, even a short vacation is enough to recharge our batteries. Enjoying the breeze, the sunlight and the summer in this Two Pears Long Sleeve Floral Asymmetrical Dress. Two Pears Long Sleeve Floral Asymmetrical Dress If you ask me if I was satisfied with this out of the ordinary experience I had during my seven-day vacation, I will tell you that yes, it was well worth it, I really enjoyed every moment of it and got many compliments on my dresses. Trying a new dress everyday was something I would never have imagined that would be possible. I called my friend to thank her for the suggestion and she was so happy to hear everything went so smooth and worriless. Now when I think back this challenge opened my mind to new and creative avenues to explore without breaking the bank. Now that I know how easy it is to go about renting outfits I’m already thinking about a new challenge which of course I will share it with you. Stay safe and tuned.
