The Secret Garden

One of the most fun things about running this blog is that it encourages me to get out and explore the city of Toronto that I currently call home. I’ve lived here for a few years now and I am still constantly discovering new things about it. This city is full of so many hidden gems: Mom-and-Pop restaurants, quaint little fashion boutiques, and tucked away natural wonders like the garden in this outfit set. We were doing some location scouting in the heart of the downtown area when all of a sudden I saw this shadowy, inconspicuous entrance that seemed to lead back to some greenery. Turns out it was a beautiful community garden. It was too late to shoot that night so we came back the next day.

I thought this location would be a perfect spot to showcase a more sophisticated kind of look. Right now the weather is in that weird in-between stage where it’s sometimes super hot and sometimes there’s a brisk autumn wind. In the morning it’s freezing but by midday the sun is beating down heavily. How do you dress for that kind of weather? This outfit and my next set explore that with fun knits or thicker fabrics that still show a bit of skin. As our luck would have it, it started raining not long after we began shooting so unfortunately we had to wrap early but it was fun while it lasted.
