I’m all about the lace-up flats. When they started to become a trend mid-last year, I was hesitant to join in on the look thinking, like many other trends, they wouldn’t last very long.
I’ve realized that shouldn’t be how I rule my own personal style.
If I like a trend or a certain fashion item new to the market, I will include it in my closet – and so I did! With a fun trip coming up, I can’t wait to wear these from day to night.
I purchased this specific pair from Aldo (similar here) mainly for the gold detailing: it makes it look like a hire-end brand. Unfortunately, the comfort level isn’t that great. So, I also purchased a black suede pair that is a little more comfortable for everyday wear from Saks. Even if this trend dies out soon, that won’t stop me from wearing them.
If you know me, you know I’ve grown to love anything Parisian, from the food to fashion to lifestyle, even though I never tried a macaron until a couple years ago. Now, they’re one of my favourite treats. I think the reason why I love them so much, besides the fact that they’re delicious, is how much time and effort goes into making every single one. You could say it’s the same for cookies or cupcakes, but it’s more than just whipping ingredients together – you have to really think about your technique, the tools you use, and your precision.
I have my go-to macaron shops in Toronto but Laduree has always been a place I want to try out. When I first discovered a Laduree location in Miami, a city I travel to regularly, I was overwhelmed with excitement. Now, every time I go to Lincoln Rd., my first spot to visit is Laduree. Everything from the packaging, to the presentation, to the macarons satisfy me and my Parisian loves.
