Kat’s Closet – Called on the Suspenders.

One of my favourite neighbourhoods in Toronto is Ossington. It’s raw. It’s real. One of my go-to accessories lately have been my suspenders. I’ve worn them with jeans and shorts and skirts. I’ve worn them up and dropped down. They’re uber cute, uber hipster and uber me. This was Saturday night. -k

Kat’s Closet – Workin’ Lady.

Do you ever have those days where there seems to be a theme within your tweets and texts and coffee talks and youtube searches? A universal pattern. Today’s was “you have the coolest job.” That was the exact sentence that rang through all outlets. I do. January has been jam packed with Raptors games. And with tired eyes and a brain at full capacity as the end of the month rolls on in, I have loved every minute. Here’s a game day outfit from the role call. They won tonight, ps. Demar sank the buzzer beater and they’re coming home happy. -k

My bad case of fernweh has flared up these past couple of weeks. Maybe it’s the everyday email reminders from Air Canada and WestJet or that I’ve been sucked into the show The Layover. (Which I highly recommend for all of you foodies with a travel itch.) So as travel planning began for post season (or sooner because I don’t know if I can wait) I was asked about city life for a local blog and like I say at the end of my interview … I have a bad travel itch but when the recognizable building-tops of my city come into view just before landing there is always that simple comfort of the familiar. It’ll always be good to be home.

Here’s my take on life in the concrete jungle…

Home Sweet Home


Kat’s Closet – Backpacking through the City.

Honestly, some days I laugh at the amount of outfit changes I go through. This isn’t including workout gear. Yesterday I kept the tally to two. And I inserted a new accessory. Welcome my new backpack to the family. Fancy backpack. Dressed up or down, it’s perfect for my city commutes. And I’m respectful of my fellow subway goers and take it off on the tube. She took me from a shoot, to the gym, to home cooked taco dinner with the fella. She’s cute. I like her. -k

It’s the holiday season.

My roomie and I looked at each other after the game finished on Friday night (…and a nice win at home it was!) and said “We have an entire weekend off!” First reaction: Where do we begin? Second reaction: Pour a glass of wine and pass out watching movies with the fellas. Sad, I know. But it’s those simple things.

We spent Saturday doing normal Saturday things. On a Saturday. Woah. We baked cookies and treats and decorated the apartment with a little Christmas jazz. Christmas music filling the place all day long, of course.

Then the crew stopped by. The simple things. I told myself this year that I’m going to really enjoy every moment of this holiday season because it goes by so fast and it’s so wonderful. That personal promise started this weekend. And the spirit continued today with endless Christmas movies and some R&R.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend too. -k



Guu-licious. Saturday night birthday wishes were made at a little Toronto scene stealer I’ve been wanting to try for a long time. It’s not just the food that is outrageous at Guu Sakubar but the atmosphere is something you cannot describe to its entirety until you step inside. My attempt was ‘if you work there, there is no going to work in a bad mood and if you are in a bad mood it’s transformed right away’. The room explodes in cheers when you walk in, when you order a new dish, when a birthday wish is made, when you leave for the evening and just because someone feels like yelling really loud which triggers a chain reaction. Long oak tables hold all of your closest friends and the trickles of simple crustacean art read ‘eat me’. I’ve never had octopus. I had octopus. It was incredible. -k
