I hope that everyone had a fantastic Valentines Day weekend! Even though I had a great weekend, it was not without it's tribulations - it's been COLD here in Toronto! I'm talking -40 degrees Celsius cold, which is no joke. We were still able to be out and about this long weekend, but it just meant making the extra effort to stay warm. This outfit in particular is what I wore for Valentines Day, after it being altered slightly for the extreme temperatures. For example instead of sheer hose, pumps and a light jacket I opted for heavy tights, booties and faux fur. Mother Nature was not going to stop me from my plans - or from an impromptu photo shoot with an oxblood dress and fun heart-shaped balloons!

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen some snaps from my Valentines Day adventures. We started off the day with brunch at the incredible Cluny in the distillery district in Toronto. I really enjoyed my eggs Benedict, and even treated myself to a pre-noon cocktail - because why not! After a few lattes with friends at my favourite coffee bar in the city, Dineen Coffee Company, we moseyed over to the Art Gallery of Ontario to check out the new Jean-Michele Basquiat exhibit - incredible. Finally we ended the day binge watching my new favourite show 'The Wire.' All in all, I couldn't have asked for a better day and have gone from a Valentines Day hater to secretly wishing that everyday was Love Day!
How was your Valentines Day? Let me know!
