Check Mate

We are playing a stylish game of hide and seek at “Hide Seek”, one of Toronto’s fanciful pop ups found in and around the city. From balls to beads, bleachers to bears, this pop-up will make the social media or photo enthusiast weep with joy and wish they brought their back up battery charger! Check out what hijinks we got into!

Gail – Suited & Booted and Tickled Pink

This pink checked suit has me feeling bubbly and effervescent like pink champagne!

I love a structured suit and this one does not disappoint. The material has loads of stretch so it’s ultra comfortable and yet tres pulled to together. The blazer has 3/4 length sleeves with pleated detailing at the cuff.

The pants have a great skinny leg fit and again, have lots of stretch and for that reason I would recommend going down a size if you prefer a more “snug” fit.

I completed my look with fun sneakers and voila I’m ready to take on the world!

Leslie – Suited & Booted in Blue

I’m decked out in checks! We know I’m at my fashion happiest when I’m in a print, so needless to say this look makes me feel giddy with joy! Couple that with spening time playing at HideSeek with my sis and we can call this a good time!

Playmatessince the cradle, Gail and I took to this place like a fish to water! Let us dissect this look from the bottom up. These sneakers. Y’all when I tell you that I think I’ve tried on a million pairs of white sneakers, I’m only slightly exaggerating. So here comes a confession, I’m always conscious of how big my feet look. I’m a size US 9 or 10, but man oh man, when I put on shoes, for some reason I look like I borrowed a clowns shoes. I have no idea why. Now, yes, I can just embrace it, and for the most part I do, but if you see the shoe coming before you can even see me, that’s just too much!LOL That was the case with all the white sneakers I tried until these babies.

I scooped up these shoes at TopShop at Hudson’s Bay of all places. They are comfortable, were inexpensive and did not exaggerate my foot size (Yippee!!!). I should have bought them in every colour!LOL

Next, this suit. Also from TopShop this suit called to me like those mythical Sirens used to call to passing ships in the night. When I put it on, I almost walked out the store wearing it I loved it so much! Lightweight and comfortable I bought this suit last summer and have worn it alsmost everywhere.

In terms of accessories, I threw on a slim black belt to help accentuate my waist as the jacket has a straight line (does not fitto the waist). Simple hoop earings and I was ready to channel my inner child at HideSeek!
