BAGS & THE CITY
I’m so excited to share with you all a fun project I’ve been working on in collaboration with Michael Kors. The idea behind this project was to capture a few signature MK pieces in my favourite areas around Toronto (how fun is that?). Very excited to reveal some of the final images. This was such an enjoyable project combining my photography with some of my favourite spots in Toronto. Keep on scrolling to discover what they are…
Whether you want to shop in beautiful boutique stores, enjoy a cup of coffee or eat at some of the best restaurants in Toronto, distillery district is a little slice of Europe in city. I love it for it’s narrow alleyways and cobblestone roads. My favourite time of year at the Distillery is around the Holidays where it becomes more like the North Pole in more ways than one (see below!)

FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT – CHRISTMAS
High Park is beautiful in every season. The spring for its gorgeous cherry blossoms, the summer for escaping the hot steamy city, the winter for its white wonderland & the fall for feeling like you’re stepping into a Monet painting filled with warm brilliant hues. I chose this location because I love fall picnics especially around Thanksgiving. Grab someone you love, lots of cozy blankets, delicious food and sit and watch the leaves fall…

FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT – SPRING
Casa Loma is one of the most beautiful places in the city. Truth be told, as I a child I was petrified of the castle (this was thanks to my father who came on a school field trip with us in elementary school and decided it was a good idea to hide in an eerie hallway only to jump out and scare my friends and I. I was so scared for the rest of tour. As I got older I could appreciate the hilarity of my dad’s prank & it’s one of those childhood memories you think of from time to time & laugh). Casa Loma is truly something special, if you haven’t been I’d definitely recommend it!

UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO CAMPUS
Although I’m not an alumni of UofT, one of my best friends is. I remember visiting her at the campus and being in awe of its grandeur (the fact that it looks like Hogwats was just an added bonus). Arguably one of most beautiful campus’ in Ontario, there is such an great energy around St. George campus that makes you want to get to work & be productive. I love this beautiful cherry backpack from MK, it’s perfect way to add something chic & elegance to your school wardrobe!
My favourite time of year to visit the campus is in the Fall.

COLETTE GRAND CAFE
Audrey says Paris is always a good idea. I say Colette is always a good idea. Not long after this cafe & restaurant open did it become a quick favourite of mine (if you’ve been following me for a while this will be of no surprise as it’s been the backdrop to a lot of fun projects). From the decadent desserts to their steak friets Colette always gets it right. My favourite area? Of course the cafe because of its beautiful blue booths & decor. It’s the only place in Toronto that for a moment I can pretend I’m in Paris.

FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT – ALL YEAR ROUND
Thanks for reading & hope you enjoyed the collaboration plus getting a peek inside some of my favourite areas in the city.
Lots of love,
What a lovely post! Thanks for sharing!
So fun!! School campuses in the fall are always full of excitement 🙂 UofT is gorgeous, but I'll admit I'm partial to Ryerson 😉 haha And Colette is always lovely for an escape in the city! xo
This post was such a great way to incorporate your favourite spots in Toronto with the MK bags! Totally agree with all of your picks although I've never been to the UofT campus. I'll have to go there soon…with that backpack!
