O.O.T.D: His and Hers, Welcome Home Edition

Sometimes, you're walking around and the light is just right.  Sometimes, your boyfriend has dressed up super cute and you just really want an excuse to take his picture a few dozen times.  Sometimes, the light being just right is... just the right excuse.  So it was this day, just after I moved home to Toronto.  Ephraim and I were taking a stroll around a couple neighbourhoods we don't check out often (turns out that Mondays are the worst day for the Junction and Roncesvalles... all the cool shops are closed!), enjoying the weather and the warm glow as the sun descended.  We popped into an alley to take these photos, because Ephraim's outfit was so snazzy.  

Really, I think I happily could have stayed out of the model portion that time around, but I do suppose y'all might like my sweet vintage blouse and a super casual outfit.

Personally, I just want more chances to photograph Ephraim looking so dapper.  I suppose that's one of the perks of living with him, now.  Model time is all the time. I can't WAIT for Decembeard!



  1. He's so handsome! And that outfit is perfect - the vest and cardigan? Yep, it's all amazing! You, as always, look quite fetching yourself, my love.

  2. You guys both look smashing, photos really did need to be taken!

  3. Hi Erin, I have just discovered this blog and from the first article I am dying to ask you a question. ( Played well! ) Please, tell me, are your glasses vintage? I wear glasses at work I look for an attractive frame as for yours! See you soon

    1. Hey Neha!
      First, sorry for the delay in my reply. I just got home from a week long vacation!
      My glasses are vintage. I like that though they are a vintage cateye, they're not too "done up" and adorned, so they work really well casually. I actually found them at a vintage shop in Toronto that specializes (really, almost exclusively) in menswear, so keep checking even the unlikely spots!

  4. he does look so daper indeed! I always try to get my man to dress in layers and such but it's always to no avail. how cool he has a family heirloom watch, and i love all his little details, like the belt buckle and shoes w/ the whatever that hole pattern is called. oh and all his poses are perfect, he was totally born for the spotlight.
