Toronto Christmas Market

Friday, December 22, 2017

The last few weeks have felt like such a whirlwind here on the blog. Christmas content pretty much takes over the last few weeks of November and the entire month of December - which is fun but also a lot of work. This has been one of my best Christmases on the blog in terms of strategy and content. There is definitely a bar which I'd like to raise for next year - but until then I'm letting things wind down and allowing myself to enjoy the last few days of the season! 

I decided to book a hair appointment for Thursday (yesterday) because my hair was looking kind of stringy and dry (thanks, Winter weather). My salon is located in the downtown area, so my sister and I decided to make a day out of the trip. She had already visited the Toronto Christmas Market this year, but I hadn't and really wanted to. 

A lot of people think the Market isn't as fun during the day, but I have to disagree. There are fewer crowds and it's way easier to navigate.

When we stepped into the market, we were greeted by carolers! They sounded so beautiful.

I was feeling extra festive - so I broke out the red coat (sold out: similar) for the day. A lot of people are surprised to see how heavy the coat is. It is lined on the inside so it's both super warm and chic. I wore a pretty basic outfit underneath. My ponte knit pants are a staple in my closet and the plaid shirt felt festive. It was calling for snow, so I wore my LL Bean boots for the day. 

How cute are these ornaments in the window?!

One of the best parts of the market is the abundance of unique food available. From tornado potatoes to vin chaud - the food side of the market does not disappoint. We decided to stop into one of my favourite restaurants in the market - Cluny. It's a French restaurant with a smaller patisserie off to the side. I picked up a croissant and two loaves of the croissant bread to take home. 

My sister really wanted Poutine before we left and I ended up grabbing one too. Poutine is one of the best things about Canada. Three pretty basic ingredients (fries, cheese curds, gravy) make the best treat!

One more picture on the way out!
