Meet the couple behind Toronto style blog Fieldguided

We Love

Anabela and Geoff Piersol are a constant source of inspiration. Their Toronto-based style blog, Fieldguided, is so rad we can’t even begin to explain it. Follow them on Instagram, you’ll see what we mean. Anabela won us over first with her beautiful tote bags and we teamed up with her last year for a special download for Spring. Obviously, we had to do it again.

We caught up with the talented couple to find out how they met, what they love about Toronto and what’s on their shopping wish lists.

 

ANABELA

HOW DID YOU GUYS MEET? We actually met online! But quickly realized we had a friend in common, which made it feel a little more natural.

WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT WORKING TOGETHER? Geoff is the most supportive person I know, and has always encouraged me creatively, telling me there’s nothing I can’t do if I set my mind to do it. He’s a natural teacher and taught me everything I know about photography. He’s also not afraid to tell me if something I’ve worked on isn’t quite right.

WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE FAVORITE SPOTS IN TORONTO?
1. Allan Gardens Conservatory: I love this place because it’s open to everyone and it’s free, and it smells so good! Such a nice place to visit, especially in winter.
2. The University of Toronto campus: Many of the downtown buildings are from the nineteenth century and they’re beautifully ornate. You don’t get a lot of older buildings in Toronto so I take a lot of delight in the carved statues and stone details.
3. The Toronto Islands: Summer means hopping on the ferry and heading to the islands for a picnic.

WHAT’S ON YOUR SHOPPING LIST RIGHT NOW? I never thought I’d see THIS day, but I’ve been trying to hit the gym a lot lately so I’ve been really interested in nice workout gear! I’ve been coming across a lot of amazing local companies who make really beautiful printed leggings, such as Paprika and Fellow Citizens.

GEOFF
 
HOW DID YOU MEET? Not much to say that isn’t covered by what Anabela said. Online dating before social media was pretty different than it is now, and it felt awkward to talk about. I’m just thankful I took a chance on it!
 
WHAT’S THE BEST PART ABOUT WORKING TOGETHER? I have a fine arts background and I’ve been drawing and taking pictures and doing creative things as long as I can remember, but I’m so thankful to have someone like Anabela to talk to and encourage me. Otherwise, with my self-critical tendencies I’d never finish any project!
 
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE FAVORITE SPOTS IN TORONTO?
1. It’s not really one spot but Toronto parks in the spring and summer are the best. Trees, plants and flowers fuel me, so I’m drawn to any place outdoors that’s sunny and green with a nice breeze and people to watch.
2. It’s expanded from an original 1 to now 3 locations but The Common is my favorite café, if only for the fact that I’m always sure to run into friendly faces whenever I go, whether it’s to grab a coffee while doing laundry or to bring my laptop and get work done.
3. I don’t get down there too often but I like St. Lawrence Market, especially the Saturday local Farmers’ Market and the Sunday Antiques Market. It can be chaotic but I enjoy the energy of it and the reminder of all the great food producers outside the city.
 
WHAT’S ON YOUR SHOPPING LIST RIGHT NOW? With the change of seasons, I’m starting to think of a wardrobe refresh, maybe a new boy’s-size Brooks Brothers button-down shirt (I’m small so they fit me best), a new pair of ‘dressy’ jeans, and a new better bike saddle that won’t ruin those jeans!
