Silver Details & Pink Blossom
Toronto essentially had me at hello. As soon as we got off the train, we instantly felt at home among the huge skyscrapers and busy streets. We stayed on King Street West, right next to Queen Street West, both of which are packed with great bars, good restaurants and cute little shops where we felt like locals rather than tourists.
Unfortunately the rain had bashed the blossom out of the cherry trees but the apple blossom was still going strong, we'll just have to head back to see them another time!
We pottered around the park and saw untold amounts of squirrels and a chipmunk wandering around, as well as doing some excellent dog spotting. The park is huge and has plenty of woodland to escape in, but you can still see the city skyline through the trees.
I've been keeping my outfits simple while we're here, packing for two weeks wasn't easy but I went for a neutral palette of white, black, grey and pink with accents of silver jewellery to change up my look every now and then. The newest addition to my jewellery box is this ever so cute Links of London sweetie bracelet*, isn't it the most adorable thing? My trusty Larsson & Jennings watch goes perfectly with it too.
After hitting our step goal (we're nerds) before 11, we thought it was definitely time to stop for breakfast and a coffee for Joe. There's a little cafe in the centre of the park so we headed there expecting a rubbish little cafe but it was actually pretty good, serving loads of different food including french toast, my fave.
My Links of London bracelet fitted in perfectly in the cafe, bringing a little bit of home in the form of a custard cream charm. Links of London are celebrating the Sweetie bracelet's 15th birthday so they challenged me to create my own personalised charm bracelet using their bracelet builder, I'm pretty happy with my biscuity choice.
We fell head over heels for Toronto and we're definitely going to have to come back again, but now it's time to explore other parts of the country!
