The weather in Toronto is extremely unpredictable, as it can bring lots of sunshine on Monday, yet got a major snow storm on Wednesday. I literally experienced two seasons in three days… The good side is: everything is fully covered by snow after the storm.
I was thinking to do a shooting at sugar beach with snow so it gives a fancy look since the background is a combination of pink and white colours. However, I didn’t get a chance to go in the past few weeks due to midterms and endless assignments. Thus, I was actually excited about the “bad” weather and decided to go right after.
It looks unreal, like a fair-tale.
Sugar beach is located at 25 Dockside Drive in Toronto’s eastern East Bayfront. This is a cute little spot to relax when your down by east side of Queens Quay (Click to see more information). It has chairs, umbrellas, and super soft sand. However, it is actually an urban beach park because the “beach” is not meant to allow swimming, but still provide functions as other social activities. Some people considered Sugar beach as a paradise in the busy downtown area, as they can come chill and relax during lunch break or after work. During the summer time, it holds several events such as music festival. You could come to read, people watch, or fall asleep under the sun, and for kids to play with the sand.
So I decided to take off my winter jacket when it was -10 degrees that day just to look nicer. I gotta say it’s worth it (hopefully haha). I chose to wear a all black outfit because it creates a strong contrast with the brighter white background. To make it fun, I picked this square disc necklace from COS. I like how big the necklace is and it’s really eye-catching as well. The midi skirt is from Forever 21 that I purchased last year, and I remember it was around $25, such a good price right!
Lastly, special thanks to my amazing friend Kristy for this lovely behind scenes shot, you could visit her personal page at http://kristyjqcheung.tumblr.com. She is absolutely talented yet creative at photography and editing, please take a look <3
