Discovering the Toronto Subway - What I Wear

If you would have told me when I first moved to Toronto 20 plus years ago that one day I would be taking the subway by choice, I would have laughed and probably suggested that you cut back on the bubbly. 

After living in the country for the past 7 years, I'm ready to give city life another chance and have been spending more time at my home in the city. When I was speaking with Mr. G. about this "adventure" of returning to the city- I said - I was going to embrace city living like I had never done before - and that included learning to take the subway!  My how life changes, here I am today taking the subway by choice. 

And since I don't usually do things the easy way ...
 I picked a snowstorm day to venture out and "explore" the subway.

As drivers slipped and slid on the snow covered streets ...

I made my way warm and comfortably beneath the city.  And what's even more amazing about taking the subway is all the underground paths. Once you learn the stops - you can move around the city without venturing out into the cold. If you are lucky to live steps from the subway and work within the subway paths you can literally avoid the winter weather.

I'm learning comfort dressing is key when it comes to taking the subway. My Cole Haan boots, cross body bag from a Paris market, Gucci sunglasses (for when I venture outside), Coach gloves and Michael Kors ear muffs have become my go to winter accessories on my subway days.

My Kenneth Cole winter coat has proven to have been a great investment. It keeps me warm and has a hood that can be easily pulled up when the temps drop, the wind blows and the snow begins to fall. My Ralph Lauren scarf keeps my neck warm.

My pink tones Burberry scarf and black leather Soho shoulder bag - Gucci and Chanel eyeglasses (for indoors).

And what's a subway outing without stopping to enjoy a hot chocolate and treat.

You are the curator of your life so live it luxuriously ,

  1. Hi Celia, I'm loving your Cole Haan buckle boots and all of your subway gear! Your photos look like New York right now - very snowy.
    Thank you for linking up with Shoe and Tell on Style Nudge!!


  2. Dearest Celia,
    LOVE your photo with the snow covered hood and of course your Cole Haan boots!
    You look so beautiful and happy; despite the dirty snow mess outside.. Fresh snow is lovely but than!
    Hugs and blessings to you.

  3. Great for you - rediscovering the city, and in a snowstorm no less! You look terrific, and cozy in that coat. Thanks for sharing the adventure with Visible Monday, xo

  4. Sounds like fun and you especially deserved that delicious treat braving the snow storm! You look très chic in the cold weather and I agree, Cole Haan boots are fantastic. They're the only boots I own that have not shown wear on the cobble stone streets of Paris. I never realized the benefits of an underground subway. Like you, I've never been one for public transportation, however, this post has changed my mind. Wishing you a warm and cozy weekend, mon ami!! xx, B

  5. Celia I love that you are once again embracing city life and you are certainly doing it in style!!
