Aga Khan Musem has always been on our list of ‘must go to’ place for the past couple months. The simple, minimalist and peaceful atmosphere attracts many tourists every now and then but still manages to keep itself off from the busy roads, to provide an immersive experience for every visitors.

We weren’t able to actually have a tour of the museum at the time of the event, but if you look up online about this place, there are tons of good reviews and people who just loved their visit. And if you’re interested in learning and seeing Islamic art, Iranian art and Muslim Culture around the world, then you should also note this as one of your ‘must-go’ places.

Yico: If you read our blog from last winter you gonna know turtleneck is our favourite! I actually have a fun story to share with you all, particularly this piece. I first bought an exact same one in grey at Aritzia’s boxing day sale, but totally forgot it’s wool, so I just used my washing machine, and espcially put it under hot water … No doubt, it’s shrunk, and became a cropped sweater… How silly I was, so please make sure you either dry-clean any wool clothing, or hand wash it under cold water!!! Since the design is on point, I decided to buy another one, in a new colour though 🙂

Camel is just one of those colors that just refuses to go out of style. No matter what season or occasions you wear it for, it still manages to look relevant, not to mention, supersophisticated. Pairing with a pair of loose fitted wide pants certainly adds a character to the overall outfit, but the bright white color keeps it subtle and minimalistic.

Yu: As fall settles in, it’s time we sing the praises of the long, chunky turtlenecks. This high-neck staple will not only keep you warm but will also elegantly elongate your neck. A thick sweater just like the one I wore, practically goes with anything! Another two thrifted items in this week’s outfit: leather boots and suede cross-shoulder bag. Don’t underestimate the capacity this little bag can carry. I’ve fitted one disposable camera, one instant-camera, wallet, phone and a hand cream while traveling in the Czech Republic (click for the blog post!), in this tiny-looking thing.

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.

Leather jackets are the outfit savior when it comes to unstable weather situation we have going on in Toronto. The temperature sometimes rises up to 16 degree in the afternoon, but it gets very chilly in the evening. We putted together an outfit from each of us to show you how we like to wear our leather jackets in the ‘spring’ season.

Yu: I have had this leather jacket from Zara for a while now, and still not tired to wearing it almost everyday throughout my school year. As a student on a budget when it comes to buying clothing, I always tend to look to spend wisely on styles that’ll outlast trends. And this leather jacket has been one of the long-lasting wardrobe pieces. The turtle neck is from Club Monaco, but guess what – I found it in one of the thrift shops near home. The camel color has been my favourite, since it can be worn almost all season without making the whole outfit neither too formal nor too casual. Finally, I threw in a pair of Girlfriend-jeans from H&M to give it a more feminine flair. They are more on the fitted side, in comparison to Boyfriend-jeans, but comfy enough for me to wear them at home as a room wear (I’m wearing them right now as I’m writing this!).

Yico: B&W outfit is perfect for any occasions, and gives an effortless look. I always wanted to get a leather jacket because it’s chic and useful! However, it took me a while to get the right one because I’m short so some of them did not fit me well. The main reason I chose this piece is the design: a slightly cropped style. With my high rise skinny from Forever 21, and tucked in a plain white shirt, it draws attention to the lower part of the body, which makes my legs look longer (hopefully lol), and of course, it’s sooooo comfty!!! Also, who does not have a pair of Converse? Simple, classic, and matches all outfits…  Lastly, I have to mention my school bag that I purchased almost two years ago at Aritzia. It was a great deal since the original price was $475, and I bought it for half price. The backpack is made from premium leather so nothing changed after years of use.
