What To Wear For City Exploring: Casual & Colourful

Canada Maple Leaf Photo

The world is just so vast and so beautiful, I am leaving pieces of my heart all over the place and Toronto was no exception, especially when we happened upon Ontario Place on the map, not quite sure what to expect, and wondered into one of the most picturesque places I’ve seen in the flesh.

A public area with greenery, lakefront access and an events space, Ontario Place is the perfect destination for a lovely walk or bike ride and ideal to stop along the way for a picnic sat on the water’s edge.

What to wear for city exploring
It can be hard to choose what to wear for city exploring as you’re on your feet all day in busy surroundings, not knowing what you’ll happen upon next. I absolutely love packing my favourite clothing for travelling with, so these clogs by Lotta from Stockholm had to come with me.

They are surprisingly comfortable for a heeled shoe, but if you’ve never worn clogs before I recommend a shorter wear at first – the soles are not flexible so walking in them can take some getting used to. I also always try to pack a small pair of flats in my backpack, too, just in case we end up on a much longer trek than expected and my feet need a fresh sole half way through!

Casual & Colourful What To Wear For City Exploring Outfit

Another top tip for what to wear for city exploring is layers! Even on a really cold day, you can work up quite a sweat marching from one end of a city to the other and despite going to Toronto in October, they were experiencing quite an unexpected heatwave! I like to wear a vest, top, lightweight cardigan and scarf for city days and pack a raincoat in my back pack if there’s a chance of rain. Thin layers still trap enough heat to keep you warm and are easier to pack away in your bag than a chunky jumper or padded coat.

If you’re going somewhere breezy, always tie up your hair! Anywhere high up (like the CN Tower) or along the water’s edge like Ontario Place will cause havoc with your hair and no one wants to enjoy these amazing views with hair blowing into their eyes and sticking to their lip balm!

If I spent some extended time in Toronto I would sit on those grass banks and read a book or doodle in my sketchbook while breathing in that fresh lakeside air. What an incredible place to wander around to gather some inspiration and get one of the best views of the CN tower in all of Toronto!

Outfit Post: How To Wear Colour & Brighten Up A Rainy Day

Outfit Post Amsterdam

There is something so calming about wandering the streets and canals in Amsterdam, even in the rain we had on this day. I could have stepped out in my jeans and a jumper, but I decided to brighten up the morning with my amazing raindrop skirt from Lucy Teacup instead and when I saw a little old lady admiring my skirt on the ferry I knew I’d made a good choice! Here’s my tips on how to wear colour and brighten up a rainy day:

Papel Picado Mexican Bunting Necklace by Onetenzeroseven

I bought this skirt first at our Etsy Made Local fair at Christmas and everything else in the outfit was bought to match. I actually picked up these tights in M&S outlet for £1.75 and they match perfectly! When you’re looking for things to go with a certain piece of clothing you own, try taking the item with you when you go shopping or at least have a photo of it to hand.

These gorgeous clogs are also from Etsy and are by Lotta From Stockholm for a bargainous £56.50! I really struggled to find some shoes to go with this skirt, but I was determined not to wear it with black! I eventually picked out the pink raindrop to go with my pink hair too.

How to wear colour, colorful outfit ideas

The top was a last minute purchase the day before we went away to Amsterdam – I have a blue top that matches the skirt and tights, but I wanted something more colourful and less matchy. This top is from Wallis, where I wouldn’t normally shop, but the fit is lovely and it was only £16.

It was pure coincidence that the Papel Picado necklace from my new collection picks out most of the colours in this gorgeous skirt, but I love that it reintroduces the colours a little further up to balance the entire outfit and is a perfect example of how to wear colour. Jewellery, scarves and accessories are a great way to pick out colours in your outfit. I added a denim shirt as a cover up too.
