Looking at this outfit from head-to-toe, I now realise how ingrained print-on-print has become in my everyday style. This, for example, is what I consider to be quite a subtle mix of prints, one that I hardly notice, even though there is tortoise print, spotted print, and a snakeskin multi all in one look. It was really my friend Phil who made me think about it when he broke down my casual print-on-print look on his eyewear blog, The Spectacled. So has print become my new black? Maybe.

Speaking of eyewear, there’s no shortage of sunglasses available in Toronto, but ones that are also designed in Toronto? Now that’s a different story. As someone who loves to support local talent, I was thrilled to find out about KayTran Eyewear. The company designs all of their eyewear in Toronto and has them handcrafted in Italy.

Their company belief is simple: one size doesn’t fit all. The aim of the KayTran fit is to avoid sunglasses that slide down your nose, sit on your cheeks or leave embarrassing marks on your face. The design is suited to those with a small nose bridge, which, as a half asian, is a category I fall into. A big THANK YOU goes out to the online shop Shut Up I Love This for introducing me to Kay Tran and hooking me up with this awesome pair of Tortoise Aiden Wayfarers. It’s hard to see in these pictures, but this pair has a beautiful blue detail that runs throughout the tortoise frame, for a closer look please click here.
