BALZACS WINTER MENU: PAIRING YOUR OUTFITS TO COFFEE

BALZACS WINTER MENU: PAIRING YOUR OUTFITS TO COFFEE

When I was in high school, my creative writing teacher gave me a piece of advice that now follows me wherever I go. When asked about where to find inspiration, she responded with “in a coffee shop“.” There is now nothing I enjoy more than sitting in a coffee shop, alone or with a friend, a book or notepad in hand. The possibilities and conversations are endless. Now I know we are often told that eves dropping isn’t very nice, but it secretly acts as the best inspiration source. The characters are endless, and so is the conversation. 

When I moved to Kingston to start my undergrad, I searched for the best coffee shop that could act as a new place of inspiration. Soon after I arrived, I stumbled upon Balzac’s on Princess – which is the ultimate aesthetic and place for inspiration. Ever since being in Kingston, I have found joy in walking downtown in an outfit that makes me feel like I’m on top of the world. You know the outfit: one with your favourite cable knit sweater and most comfortable yet most flattering jeans, and a pair of shoes that occasionally squish your toes, but it doesn’t matter. My housemates and I have made an ongoing effort to get out of the house for a walk, and this is the perfect occasion to do so as it allows you to be distanced and keep the people around you safe.

The next time you need a coffee, a source of inspiration, or a place to feel grounded, walk yourself down to Balzac’s on Princess. Maybe you’ll go in a sweatsuit, or perhaps you’ll be in a monochromatic outfit. Either way, finding what makes you happy at Balzac’s will be a breeze. Now picture this: your favourite outfit and a feel-good attitude in pairing with the perfect cup of coffee to create the ultimate aesthetic. You’re ready to take on the world!

Balzac’s new winter menu is out and we have taken the liberty to pair outfits to each winter drink creating the perfect winter aesthetic. Explore below the countless options and ways to pair your outfit and attitude to your daily Sunday cup of coffee. Enjoy!
