Sunday Market Day ... and Hello Autumn

After stocking up on some goodies for the week at Kensington Market, the beautiful autumn afternoon beckoned for us to keep enjoying the outdoors a little longer.

So I changed into heels and we took a little detour on our way home to
Yorkville for a little stroll through the parkette. 







I love the open back detail of this top ...





After a scorching dry summer, in Toronto, the cool crispness of autumn is a much appreciated change. Long time readers of HHL already know autumn is my favourite season. I'm looking forward to getting back to cooking  and baking in my kitchen on a more regular basis. Being in the city and having access to the many fresh markets makes finding the best seasonal produce, and fresh meat, poultry, fish, bread and cheeses simple.

What is your favourite autumn meal?


What I wore: Top - Calvin Klein; Pants - Dolce and Gabbana; sneakers - Converse; heels - Dolce and Gabbana; belt - Hermes; watch - Cartier; French market basket - l'occitane (from 2015 trip to Paris)
