This is Paradise

This is Paradise

Over the long weekend, I had a chance to enjoy the good weather in one of my favourite spots in the city – west Queen West. My friend and I indulged in some shopping and froyo, but I was amazed at all the cute new little pizza places and bar popping up along the strip. My favourites are definitely still Dark Horse for coffee, Terroni for Italian, Dufflet or Loblaws for dessert and the Drake for brunch. Here are some photos from our afternoon.

I’m wearing a cream chiffon top from Abercrombie, a mint analogous hem skirt from Zara (last season but similar here), tapestry slipper flats, vintage sunglasses and a vintage snakeskin bag I bought from Stewarts Vintage in Montreal.
