Snowy Day in Old Montreal

Smythe Poncho

A snowy visit to beautiful Old Montreal

A couple weeks back we took a quick trip to Montreal with my sister, her fiancee, and an exchange student that they were hosting from Australia. I have been to Montreal a few times and usually we opt to stay in the Plateau area. This time we checked in at Le Saint Sulpice which is located in Old Montreal. I have to say, for a quick trip, and with all the snow we had over the 2 days we were there, Old Montreal was a magical spot to be.

After briefly stepping out in the snow and realizing it was more than these boots were ever made for I slipped into my true winter boots for the rest of the day but these booties still remain a favourite of mine. I wore this Smythe cape (fantastic Canadian designers that I have mentioned here many times before) and used my Longchamp bag. The Longchamp bag is great for travelling – the medium size, that I am carrying here, is a good size to hold a water bottle, a pair of gloves, passport if needed, and all your daily accessories (it also fits a 13″ laptop well!). I understand why it is a bag that is so widely loved.
