Sunday Night Out

Hello! Summer is officially in full swing! The hot weather is finally here and I'm ready to spend all of my  time outside. Something I love about summer is getting dressed up and going to dinner! Sitting on a patio and enjoying the warm summer night with friends. Patio season is huge here in Toronto....probably because its so hard to go out in the winter. It's far too cold and it gets dark so early, so we like to spend as    much time on patios as we can. For me it's not only about sitting on a patio its also walking through the streets in the evening and seeing people dressed up, and smelling peoples perfume/cologne as they walk by (Honestly that probably my favourite thing ever!). On Sunday I went to dinner with a couple of friends  I went out with my friend Mikayla (Which most of you guys know) and My friend Neguine who finally came back from Spain after being gone for like 3 years. 

This is THE dress!  I am seriously so obsessed with it! I thrifted it a few months ago It was finally warm enough for me to wear it out. The dress is 100% silk and its in this beautiful milk chocolate colour, it has all of this amazing beading on the side. Its a major flapper moment!  While I was getting ready I kept looking it at hanging on my bathroom door and it felt like the dress was from a different time. 

As a rule on a night out I only use a small bags, whether its a small structured bag, a clutch or a small vintage beaded bag like this one. I personally find them more elegant for the occasion, and they pair better with my going out clothes. But since my bags are small I can only bring the bare essentials ! I switched to a card holder because its smaller and I only brought what I needed (credit and debit cards, health card, drivers license and Presto). If you want the same card holder you can get it here! I have to bring My lipstick of course!  (Chanel Rouge Coco 444 Gabrielle). A compact to touch up my makeup and a comb, Sometimes I bring a hairbrush instead but this handbag was too small so I opted for a vintage comb that  has a mirror in the floral case. 

If you know me you know I cant go anywhere without perfume! It's the final touch and I don't think my outfit is complete without it. My Every day perfume is Chanel Mademoiselle, but at night I choose Coco Noir. It's almost like the darker sexier version, its the perfect night out fragrance! 

Before dinner we took some phots of our outfits, and here we are just goofing around as we attempt to take a cute photo of the three of us haha. If you want to check out their instagrams you can click on their names!  Mikayla on the left and Neguine on the right

This is one of my favourite entryways in the city. its so intricate and has the most beautiful gold art deco doors.... and look at the colourful mosaic at the top! there is so much to look at! This building is the concourse building (Concourse to symbolize gathering) and it was designed in 1928 by Martin Baldwin and the detailing was creating by J.E.H MacDonald, who was a member of the group of seven.  The entryway is two storeys tall with a roman arch and filled with beautiful mosaics depicting air, fire, earth and water. The mosaics on the arch represent different Canadian industries and also Canadian wildlife. Unfortunately it's only a facade because the interior of the building has been demolished and redone on the  so only two original entryways  remain. 

For dinner we went to King Taps, Smack dab in the middle of the financial district (First Canadian Place, at King and Bay). I've been here a couple of times and its great for a casual hang out, drinks and appetizers type thing. I got the crispy chicken sandwich... I've been craving a crispy chicken sandwich for WEEKS! Specifically the one from Hemingways in Yorkville. It was good but I think It needed a bit more sauce. I love the hamburger sliders (Minimacs) its usually my go to at king Taps, so if you are going to go I highly recommend getting them as a starter to share!. Mikayla got the chicken tacos and Neguine got pizza. I also got a black coffee with my dinner because it started pouring! We were sitting in the patio and luckily they put the roof out.  They had been calling for rain all day and we were worried about having to walk outside if it was pouring but I kept saying "it will only rain while we are eating at the restaurant" and what do you know... thats exactly what happened!  

Here is another building from the Art Deco era. Located at 320 Bay street, The Canada Permanent trust building was built in 1931 by architect Henry Sproatt . I love the detailing on the rotating doors! You just don't see that type of detail anymore.  Unfortunately Toronto has a history if destroying its heritage building and replacing them with "modern buildings" as in ugly glass buildings with no details.  It's really unfortunate and I wish more would be done to preserve them. But I guess thats a topic for another day !  For now lets just enjoy the beautiful details from decades past.  

And this is me signing off for the night! I hope you enjoyed this post ! I want to do more lifestyle posts like this! Usually I only show photos of my outfit, but I want to share the details of what I'm doing that day with detail photos in between the outfits. I took all of these photos on my phone and it just feels more personal. Like a diary entry?  Let me know what you think! But for now.... XOXO Goodnight !
