Another year of autumn is fast approaching, and surprisingly, we’ve been having a very warm weather. The leaves are yet to fall, and people are still walking around in their tanks and shorts.
We’ve had a long day of photoshoot and were passing by the Union station in downtown Toronto. The streets were dazzled as the sun set in alignment with the grid of the city streets. It did reminded us a little bit of the Manhattanhenge sunset in the Big Apple (you know they say Toronto is New York City of Canada!).
Yico: Mule shoes will continuously be a hot topic, and my choice for autumn is a pair of high heel mule in camel. Forgive me, I should have put my nail polish on!!! Anyways, it’s still looking gorgeous. My blouse is only $5, and surprised to see with such LOW price, the quality and design are so damn amazing! Now, take a close look at the details: gold buttons, electric blue cuffs, and a red “U” shaped pocket. I guess you can only find those deals in Taobao for brand new goods. I usually go for nude colors for bottom, and it’s my first time trying that bright red. All because we don’t feel like wearing boring clothes, and wanna have some fun ;))
Yu: There are countless numbers of thrifted turtle necks in my wardrobe, and this bright red one is certainly my favorite out of all. You probably won’t believe how many items I have are thrifted from Value Village, including the cross-body wallet and the pair of boots. Thrifting gems is definitely one of my skills that I gained through my love for fashion, but it is honestly not that difficult once you learn the tricks (hope that I could write a post about it one day!). But anyways, to complement with this bright red sweater, I decided to go a little more modest with the color coordination of other items.
It’s been a long summer here in Toronto, and we wanted to soak up even last bits of the sun. There’s a spot in Highland Creek that not many may know of, with a great view of the lake and the Scarborough City and only takes about 15min from the UofT Scarborough Campus. Oh, almost forgot to mention, I came back to Toronto for a week to do my driving test (although I failed, you will see my G2 soon). Finally we reunited after 4 months, and really? It’s been 4 months already?! How fast… Before this trip, I made a to do (eat) list with different themes for our blog. Catching up with blog posts was not easy, but meeting up and chilling with friends for photo shooting was full of fun and laughs 😉
The “secret beach” was hidden behind a hiking trail, and you gotta have a good pair of stable shoes to go down the steep hill. Many youngsters have left behind their BBQ equipment, and empty water bottles but we could not care less – the view was beautiful.
Yico: A glance at our closets, we both found so many strip shirts, so an idea came up in my mind: wear them in different ways! Honestly, strips are so classic, yet will never out of trend. EVERYONE should at least get one piece to play with. You may notice that there are special designs for our cuffs/sleeves. For mine, the bottom part is similar to the formal shirts, and I can roll it up or leave it to add some fun to the overall outfit. Midi skirt is always a perfect match with a beach/ leisure look. It definitely eye-catching, and comfy for a long walk, and this orangish colour is pretty summer! Say YAS to a pair of chic sandals: I would wear them everyday just because they’re super soft & easy.
Yu: Lately, there’s a trend in brining back the 90’s styles, like the choker necklaces and distressed denim. But now it seems that the latest trend to be revived is the layered tank-over-shirt look. Suede is definitely a staple for fall looks, giving the overall outfit a soft and subtle feels.
