Parisian Gap

I don’t believe we have ever been more proud of a ‘photoshoot’ as we are of this one.

Bikes, looking quite Parisian, in Trinity Square park in Toronto

Having been cooped up in the college residence building for a long while, we decided to venture out into the city itself. Toronto has always been a city of fascination to me. The history of the buildings along Bay Street and the heritage within the brick walls of the Hudson’s Bay on Queen Street are such warm pieces of architecture.

We began our trip into Toronto proper with a jaunt through the Eaton Centre. It has never been my most visited mall, and the fact that the fire alarm blared for five minutes during our visits to Indigo and J.Crew justified my belief. The employees in J.Crew Mens Shop were cold, and did not greet us. Instead they stared us down from their herd off to the side of the store. Lovely people.

We snagged a bit of Starbucks before heading into Bath and Body Works to sniff the Autumn collection of candles. The man approached us, beaming, and confessed he absolutely had to tell us how cute we looked. Y’all absolutely need the Wasabi Apple candle which they had burning at the front of the store. Also try the Tailgate candle (which Daniela says smells like boy) and Fresh Balsam for the winter months. Such a cozy scent, and they only had one left so act fast.

As for Starbucks, the salted caramel mocha latte struck again. Paired with cinnamon swirl coffee cake it was like Autumn in a snack.

The grand finale was a pop over to the Gap. Never have I purchased anything from the Gap, but this sweater was only $12 after their 40% off sale so it was swiftly purchased and I changed into it once we arrived at the enchantingly Parisian-esque Trinity Square.

The sweater is so soft, and with the sleeves rolled up is a perfect transition piece. White shorts, white shoes are the perfect complement.

Trinity Square is such a gorgeous place. People were meandering about on break from their jobs, sitting down in the grass or strolling with their loved ones. For some odd reason the pigeons were dive-bombing into peoples heads, which made the day even better.

The first ever photograph of Daniela and I together. You can read her story of the day on Polka Dots and Pearls. It was all well worth the trip.
