There’s one week during spring time that everyone seems to be posting the same photo: something to do with cherry blossoms. Here in Toronto, we’ve got a few hot spots for people to bring their cameras during this brief and magical time of year, but the place to be is in High Park. I had never actually gone but had heard stories of the hoards of people who flock to the park to check out these trees. Honestly, it sounded a bit silly until I got there and saw just how beautiful it really is.
The reason I braved the crowds was because I couldn’t imagine any other setting to shoot an outfit from my first ever ASOS order! I’ve known for quite some time that ASOS has a tall department but it wasn’t until Bree from The Tall Society tipped me off on their outlet sales, that I finally made a purchase. I have to keep myself from browsing their site because I could probably buy something new every time!
The top and shorts are so soft, I’m actually in love. They aren’t necessarily pieces that I’d need to ‘shop tall’ for, but knowing they were from the tall department, I was confident that the cropped tee wouldn’t be too short, and that the shorts would cover my entire bum. I was not disappointed, and how completely adorable is the set??! The monochrome outfit inspired me to stay in the pink/blush/white family, so I accessorized with pieces from Forever 21, and grabbed my nude fishnets from La Senza!
