As the spring is fast approaching in Toronto, we decided to take a stroll around in the downtown area to grab some coffee and spend our Sunday afternoon (sorry it wasn’t a Monday!) with one of our good friends. We stopped by Tandem Coffee located in Corktown on King St., a coffee shop filled with unique and subtle interiors. We definitely want to do another post to include details of our experiences featuring many other coffee shops in downtown Toronto.
Yu: I got way too excited when this skirt came in the mail the other day, and decided to match it with Aritzia’s thick cocoon turtle neck to protect myself from the chilly wind in Toronto. These pair of Vans’ Old Skool is also something I recently purchased, and they fit me so well! They are very true to size, however, to prevent the edge of the shoes from scratching my feet, I had to wear them with a pair of thick socks. They are definitely high maintenance, especially in the rainy spring weather, but little spots of dirt will easily come off by just using Vans’ Gel Cleaner (about $14CAD), which saves so much time from me bleaching them periodically.
Yico: Bomber jacket is the newest trend of 2016, and for outwear I prefer slightly oversized fit so it gives me enough space to layer with other pieces. Almost every brand has one, get yours at Topshop, Zara, and Mango (a pink one)…Some of you guys may notice that my bag is from Mansur Gavriel, and it was so hard to buy in 2015 because this bucket bag was the “It Bag” of that year meaning everyone should get one. The design is so simple yet functional, it provides another detachable wallet as well. There are over 20 colours for you to choose but I personally like to stick with neutral colours for designer bags since those colours are classic and never go out of style. White shoes are my favourite as they just match anything. This low-top canvas sneaker is from Eytys, a Swedish brand. What caught my attention to this pair was the minimalist look,no big labels but unique with purple tab at back of the shoes.
Last but not least, a big shoutout to our friend Yogi who took these lovely photos! He is amazing, and we definitely look forward to do more collaboration projects in the future. Don’t forget to check out his Instagram feed 🙂
