Quoi Porter?: A Week in Québec
From the 10 hour drive to a stroll down Rue Saint-Jean, I'll share my favorite places to visit and how I dressed for the occasion in Damiano Collection style.
Exploring Old Québec City
Imagine the most charming architecture and quaint façade-filled winding streets as far as the eye can see. To top it all off, you can't miss the majestic Château at the top of city center. To explore this beautiful city, I wore the breathable Organic Cotton Shirtdress over Silk Separates (Bralette and Shorts) for modesty under those sheer whites. Here are my favorite snaps of the day!
Île d'Orléans is a fantastic landscape of vineyards, berry farms, orchards and fromageries. There is one main road that loops around the entire island, which is perfect for sightseeing and stopping for some delectable treats. My explorers outfit consisted of the Washed Silk Pants layered with the Silk Wrap Shirt.
Quebec City has many historical museums and buildings. As a patron of the arts, we chose to visit the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec. Many modern and classic art works are displayed alongside a couple of fine dining nooks, plus they have a bee garden on the roof! I dawned the Silk Day Robe tied at the waist, with the Cotton Wrap Culottes.
After a week trying to blend in like a local, Quebec truly started to feel like home (if everyone spoke French at home, that is). It is not unlike Philadelphia in size, but the culture of the city is slower with an undoubtable European flaire.
