I spend approximately 100% of my talking time on the weather. I know that, you know that, my mom knows that. A normal human being would attempt to focus on other topics after coming to this realization, but I a) am not a normal human being and b) can think of no other logical way to explain why Dani and I spent last weekend taking 14 million selfies in multiple outfits in varied amounts of layers. With that being said (read: long-winded and inane forewarning aside), I present to you my most groundbreaking introductory sentence: weather is unpredictable. It can be scorching hot and humid one day and bitingly cold the next, and the last few weeks in Toronto can rubber-stamp it. How are you (Torontonians/North Americans [in general]) supposed to keep up?!?!

!Luckily! we have a solution for you: transitional footwear. We each took two different pairs of shoes and styled them for both summer and the impending fall season. I chose classic lace-up boots and sleek, strappy flats; while Dani chose metallic oxfords and ankle boots with a baby heel. Although they’re all closed-toe styles, they’re just as good for jumping into piles of autumn leaves as they are for jumping into pools. OK, maybe not, but you get the gist: Call It Spring can also be called summer and fall. LOLz.



IT’S A PARTY (With Call It Spring)

Getting dressed and dolled up for a ~*soiree*~ is definitely a sacred girlytime ritual. In fact, if you calculated all the time we’ve spent on hair, makeup, and outfit planning, you’d probably get something like 5 years each. That’s insane to think about. We’ve dedicated almost a quarter of our lives to this art. I’m also over-exaggerating, like, a lot.

Anyway, more often than not, we leave the house in an all-black outfit because you can never really go wrong with one. They’re classy, mysterious, and cool without trying too hard — AMIRIGHT?! We also wear bras masquerading as real tops 99% of the time because #strongempoweredwomen. As for footwear, we usually lean towards high heels since we’re both lacking in the height department, but flats (like a good oxford or fancy slip on) can make you look just as put together for the nights you don’t plan on falling face-down on the dance floor.

Speaking of parties, we’re throwing a lil’ jam !!!this Friday!!! to celebrate the newly renovated Call It Spring Square One location. If you’re in Mississauga (or if you’re just a really dedicated human being), stop by from 5 pm – 9 pm for some sweet tunes, sweet snacks, sweet content 4 ur Instagram, sweet deals, and sweet, sweet hang-times with us!!! You might even get a cameo in the next Kastor & Pollux Youtube video *giggles*

See you there!!!



A Weekend in Vancouver with Kit & Ace

A couple of weeks ago, Dani and I hopped on a plane at YYZ with a dream and a cardigan, only to realize it is scorching hot on the west side of the country and the aforementioned sweater was completely useless. The dream, however, stayed alive. Since we were wee lil’ gals, we’ve been starry-eyed over the thought of visiting Vancouver — a city that plopped itself between picturesque mountains and the vast ocean. Because Toronto has neither of these things, we fell in love as soon as we landed.

We spent the first few days with tha homie Jen in Richmond. Since she’s originally from the city, she took us to her favourite spots: Daiso (a Japanese dollar store), Japadog (a Japanese hotdog-stand-turned-restaurant), late night Japanese food, and a slew of non-Japanese places ie Stanley Park for a Mean Girls screening. After having a lil’ taste of the suburb life, we lugged our suitcases to the heart of the city for a weekend with brand spankin’ new luxe basics brand Kit & Ace. Co-founder JJ and his sidekick Courtney planned an action-packed itinerary for us and our new blogger friendz, including but not limited to a party with ice cream, a bike ride along the sea wall with ice cream, and meaningful conversations with ice cream.

Overall, our trip was wonderful and wholesome and awesome blossom fabulous fantastic and we feel so #blessed to have seen Vancouver through the eyes of its very own. Thank you x 1 million to Kit & Ace for making it all possible!

 

PS Big ups to JoonMONEY for following us around with a camera all weekend. You da man!!!
