In the days leading up to our departure to Toronto, every night I would be on Pinterest pinning places I could visit whilst I was there. The Distillery District kept popping up, so I took note and together Holly and I walked there one morning. We walked everywhere, not once did we take the tram. This day however, we kind of wished we had used one. It wasn't too far, only 40 minutes away on foot, but we took a route that wasn't too interesting in terms of scenery. On the way back, we took another route which was way more beautiful!
The Distillery District in located in Old Town, (East Downtown Toronto) and is a historic and entertainment area. With over 40 heritage buildings, it's the largest collection of Victorian Era industrial architecture in Canada. In the 1860's, it became the largest Distillery in the world, and today it's home to numerous cafes, restaurants and quirky shops. We even found Balzac's Coffee, which had such a gorgeous interior and some damn good hot chocolate! I wish we went in the late afternoon so we could admire the fairy lights and street lamps illuminating the brick streets, but the sunshine was too gorgeous that day to complain.
I bought this lovely white sheer blouse from Mango a few months back, and it's been patiently waiting in my wardrobe. It's like a cloud in material form. I kept trying it on, but had yet to find the perfect look. I've been eyeing this green a-line faux leather skirt from Zara for a while now, I already had it in mustard but it was too good to resist. The two pieces complimented each other perfectly, with a clash of different materials and colors. Paired with my Topshop Ankle Boots & my new Urban Outfitters shopper bag, this look is currently my new favorite.
