Toronto "Best Of" List....

Hello Darlings,

Last weekend, I went exploring in my hometown and thought to write this article with my "best of" places to go and see in Toronto.

The variety of people and neighborhoods in Toronto is unlike maybe any other city, so random exploring days can be lots of fun. Some people worship New York, Paris, London and Milan as the most chic and fabulous places on Earth. I don’t disagree, but I think Toronto deserves mention in the list! So here is my current "best of" list of places to see in Toronto, at least in my mind!

 

 

I love how friendly people are. I love our National Ballet and Opera, Royal Ontario Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, Casa Loma and our CN Tower.  I love Toronto fashion week and thousand of other things (except our poor Maple Leafs hockey team who haven't won in 4 decades!).

This past weekend with friends, I explored Kensington Market. It was a perfect Sunday morning. So in the spirit of finding new things, here is a list of my Toronto favorites, besides dessert cafes. Because of my deep love and appreciation for them, Toronto’s dessert places essentially deserved their own post. You can check it out here! This is list is not in any order...

Art Gallery of Ontario

National Ballet of Canada at Four Season Center

I danced ballet for ten years, and now enjoy the beauty as an audience member.

Eden Trattoria on Lakeshore

The view of downtown is terrific, with a wonderful patio for summer.

The Boiler House at Distillery District

Great food and the location is even better. Distillery District is a must-see!

Pusateri’s at Yorkville

Great place for desserts. Pusateri’s is a supermarket with a café inside.

Hazelton Lanes Patio in Yorkville

One of my favorites for summer cocktails with friends.

East on Queen Street

Great asian food in a great location in the entertainment district.

Kalendar on College

Charming, artsy and cozy. Their food is as good as their atmosphere.

 

Sempre Pizza and Pasta on Bloor St. West

My favorite place to satisfy cravings for Italian food.

Hemingways in Yorkville

I love their nachos and huge patio.

Momiji Sushi on Bloor St. West

The atmosphere and sushi are great.

 

Now moving on to the outfit part of the program…

 

I wore my new Sonya Rykiel top for an adventure in Kensington. I love  how it adds a perfect amount of color to a simple and lazy Sunday outfit!

I am wearing: Sonya Rykiel pour H&M top (H&M) ; J Brand '12  pencil jeans (Winners) ; Mike & Chris "Paul"  Hoodied Leather Jacket (Holts Last Call); Bloch patent leather flats (from revolveclothing.com); Michael Kors Watch (gift from Andrew); Ray Ban Wayfarers (gift from Andrew); Marc by Marc Jacobs Earrings ( from Nordstrom Soho); Gustto Cokera Purse ( from revolveclothing.com)

P.S. Some have asked about my "mission" post and to let you know it is a work in process! I have decided to overhaul my spring/summer closet and sell some items that I have gently worn that deserve a new home :) So, yes darlings... I am working on an ebay store!!!

 

What are some of your places to go in your favorite city? Or in Toronto?

 

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!

With Love...

Marta
