5 Looks for your Toronto Staycation
As the weather begins to heat up and restrictions begin to ease, it’s the perfect time to embark on a staycation to remedy your restlessness. The city of Toronto has so much to offer in its own backyard, from farmers markets in Leslieville to virtual cooking classes, and a whole host of activities in-between that are sure to keep you busy. Although you may not be walking the cobblestone streets of Italy this season, why not be a tourist in your own city and romanticize all the attractions it has to offer while doing it in style.
Discover a breathtakingly scenic Butterfly Habitat located south of Lakeshore Boulevard West, near Park Lawn Road found in Humber Bay Park. This waterfront park has beautiful views of the lake and its surrounding areas and is the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors without having to travel too far outside of the city. The Palma Blue Floral Print Mini Dress by Faithfull The Brand is the ultimate summer dress. It is light and airy while still accentuating the waist with rouching in the front, and has a flattering v-neckline, and delicate puff sleeves. Paired with the Crosby Convertible Wristlet by MZ Wallace this ensemble is the perfect effortless summer look.
Located in Toronto’s Harborfront is a traditional 165-foot three-masted Schooner boat, often mistaken for a pirate ship called The Kajama. This large vessel embarks on seven Harborfront cruises daily, beginning at noon and ending with a 7:30pm sunset cruise. The voyages provide sweeping city views and are a great photo opportunity. Let the wind flow through the flutter sleeves of Sabina Musayev’s Kasia High Collar Short Sleeve Top. This top adds a touch of refined style to any look, and when paired with the Rails Belle Cream Tie Short shorts and Frame’s Le Second Crossbody Wallet, you’ll be the most stylish sailor on any boat.
We all miss date nights at restaurants whether it be cocktails and catchup with the girlfriends or a date night with your partner, but why not recreate the experience in the comfort of your own home? Eataly Toronto, known for its multifunctional marketplace and amazing array of Italian food is supplying virtual cooking classes - the perfect at home date night activity. This experience allows for the freedom to be creative in the kitchen, try new techniques or foods, and to have fun at home. The Printed Wolfe Mini Dress by Ramy Brook says exactly that, with its vibrant peacock-inspired print bringing a little flavour to any date night. Paired with a waist cinching Chain Belt from Frame, you'll feel so fabulous, you’ll forget you’re at home instead of at your favourite restaurant.
Farmer’s markets and Sundays hold a special place in everyone's heart and when they collide you are provided with the dreamiest summer afternoon. The Leslieville Farmers Market is up and running every Sunday from 9am to 2pm at Greenwood Park. So, grab your Frank & Eileen Plaid Linen Shirt Dress for comfortability and remarkable effortless style, and pair it with your favourite Longchamp shoulder tote to hold all the goodies you don’t necessarily need but you know you will buy, and top it off with Kerri Rosenthal’s fun and playful Sunny Daze Imperfect Heart Canvas Hat. This dangerous trio will have you equipped for all your farmers market fantasies.
At home movie and pamper nights will never go out of style. Although every night feels like an at-home movie night, making it livelier and more exciting with a fun matching sweat suit set from Starkx always does the trick. Part of creating an ambiance is what you wear, and there is nothing more luxurious than the Velour Shorts, Joggers and Sweatshirt. The soft, vibrant, and flattering material will elevate any stay-in night and have you feeling so relaxed and rejuvenated for the next day. Pairing the set with a graphic tee from Daydreamer will give the look dimension with pops of colour and a looser fit to capture that perfectly worn-in style.
Staycations are a wonderful way to explore new areas and activities that you may have overlooked, and to relax and take a break from life's stressful realities. Surely going on new adventures calls for the perfect outfit to match so you can thrive and arrive in comfort and style.
