Fall Footwear with Lacoste | Style Post

Fall Footwear with Lacoste | Style PostIt’s a busy time in the city for those of us in the fashion industry, as next week is World MasterCard Fashion Week! Even though I tell myself every season that I’m going to take it easy, somehow my schedule always ends up being jam packed. Whether it’s watching the shows, catching up with the models, shooting content, attending gift lounges and or the hundreds of after parties… the week is full or glitz and glamour + a ton of work. That being said, I tend to style a lot of my looks the week before so that I’m not stressing over what to wear the day of. You may have seen a glimpse or two of this look on my Instagram account over the last few weeks but I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to post the full look + details on my site. I kept the clothes very simple as I wanted the shoes to pop and get the attention they deserve. These Millard Lace Derby shoes from Lacoste  are about to get a lot of play next week and furthermore the rest of the season. Comfortable, stylish with a classic yet modern feel to them, they’re the perfect addition to my footwear collection, don’t you agree?

Dapper Meets Street | Style Post

Lacoste | Christian Confidential These last few months have been pretty busy for me and I’m finding that I’m spending less and less time at home. That being said, I’ve been having to dress myself in ways that are appropriate for any type of setting i.e.; a business meeting, dinner with friends or even a baseball game. Having to stay true to my style, I’ve been putting a lot of street and dapper pieces together. I absolutely love this look and I hope you do too! Ripped denim, basic tee, white low tops and a black blazer to add that extra class. 

Lacoste | Christian Confidential If you’re following me on Instagram, you’ve definitely seen these kicks paired with a few of my outfits. They’re my latest pair of Lacoste sneakers and are super versatile. Comfortable, with a more slender frame than most of the brands offering, I think they totally compliment the outfit.

Live Beautifully – The Lifestyle Series Pt. 3 | By Christian Confidential & Lacoste


Lacoste | Christian ConfidentialLacoste | Christian ConfidentialThis past weekend I challenged myself to step outside of my comfort zone and experience something that I’ve never done before. If you’ve been following along via social media you’re aware that my friends and I took a short trip to Hamilton, Ontario to part take in some outdoor activities. 

With that being said, I’m excited to share with you all the third instalment of my #LiveBeautifully lifestyle series in collaboration with Lacoste. This time around I wanted to highlight the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, specifically the importance of being active and the benefits of eating healthy.
The last few weeks, we’ve been having beautiful weather so I wanted to find something that my friends and I could participate in that wasn’t apart of our regular physical activities (running, training, basketball) that still allowed us to catch up and be social. My creative partner suggested that we head over to Hamilton and go on a hike and that’s exactly what we did. I’m a city boy so I never really thought of hiking to be my ‘thing’ but after talking to my friends and seeing how enthusiastic they were about it, I was down to try it out and face my fear of heights!

Lacoste | Christian ConfidentialWe made our way over to Dundas Peak and Webster’s Falls which are both equally beautiful. It’s crazy to think that places like this have been so close by to us and it’s the first time we visited them.

The hike itself was great for a beginner. It wasn’t super long and had a lot of moments where you wanted to stop and take photos allowing you to take short breaks. We made it to the peak and decided to set up shop to eat our lunches courtesy of Belmonte Raw and take in the view. Lacoste | Christian Confidential

It was a hot day and my friends and I know the importance of staying hydrated and consuming  the right types of food when being active. We all had specially made raw organic meals that were full of nutrients and vitamins to keep us happy and energized, along with juices and plenty of water. My favourite juice this time around was ‘Hydrate’  – it has activated charcoal, alkaline water, lemon and coconut sugar which is great for post workouts. It’s also great for hangovers but we’ll save those details for another post!

This was my first hike and I couldn’t of thought of a better group of friends to experience this with. We laughed, caught up on life and documented the experience through video and photos. Check out the video below to get a glimpse into our experience.

I couldn’t talk about living beautifully and not mention my footwear or apparel. Call me crazy but hike or no hike, crisp white sneakers get me all the time. I decided to wear my new Ampthill LCR SPM sneakers on this hike and they provided me with the right amount of comfort and stability to run around with my friends all day. If you’re not as much of a risk takers as I am to wear white on a hike, they also offer them in a grey colour way with red accents.  The thing that I love about Lacoste and I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before is that they offer classic pieces that no matter what you’re doing (hiking, golfing, brunch, the movies) you always look sharp, which to me is what I call living beautifully! Lacoste | Christian ConfidentialI had such a great time on this little adventure and I hope that it encourages you all to be more active and to try new things! Be active, eat clean, explore new places, wear nice clothes and shoes while doing it all!

Can’t Go Wrong With Classics | Style Post

Christian Confidential | LacosteKeeping it super preppy yet casual with this style post. A Slim fit polo, khakis and a fresh pair of white Lacoste sneakers always make for a great outfit combination. Growing up my parents use to always dress me in preppy outfits like this and to this day this style is still a go-to for me. Whether you’re going on a first date, grabbing lunch with the boys or simply running around downtown, you’ll look fresh in this fit. If you’re looking for a little twist on the classic white sneakers, check out the ones that I’m wearing - still white but the pop of blue and red detailing give it a little more edge than your typical all-white kicks.

Monochrome Vibes | Style Post


monochrome street vibes | Christian Confidentialmonochrome street vibes | Christian ConfidentialLately, I’ve been embracing more of my edgy side when it comes to new fashion purchases. So, it came as no surprise to me that I would gravitated towards these drawstring shorts from Forever 21. Not only did I have to have them right away, I had to find the perfect tee to compliment them. I decided to pair these shorts with a white Longline muscle tee (that you’ll definitely see repeated) and a pair of black Hi-Tops, giving off total monochrome vibes. This look might not be for everyone but I’m all about being different and trying new things! Remember guys, the key to looking great in clothes, is wearing them with confidence.

My 5 Day ‘Reset’ with Belmonte Raw | Juice Cleanse

Belmonte Raw | Christian ConfidentialIf you follow me on Instagram, you would’ve seen that last week I was appointed the title of a #BRawAgent and participated in a 5 day juice cleanse.  This wasn’t my first juice cleanse but it was my longest by an additional two days. Having worked with the brand in the past ‘The Circle’ – luncheon and ‘Sweat With Christian’, I knew that I was in good hands. Belmonte Raw | Christian ConfidentialEveryday, I was delivered a fresh batch of organic cold pressed juice between the hours of 5am and 8am with a schedule and guidelines on when to consume them. I followed the schedule and consumed a lot of water in between juices and went on with my day. The only real adjustment that I made was to my workout regimen. I brought down the intensity of my workouts to accommodate the amount of calories that I was consuming.

The main benefit of being on a juice cleanse is to give your digestive system a break from it’s everyday heavy duties of breaking down solid foods. In addition to giving your digestive system a break a lot of people lose weight, release toxins and gain glowing skin from being on a cleanse. I didn’t lose much weight but my skin does look and feel better. Belmonte Raw | Christian ConfidentialOne thing I do really like about being on a cleanse is that because you follow a schedule, once completing it, you tend to continue out of habit. The last few days post cleanse, I’ve been eating earlier, more regularly and consuming more water.

If you’re in the market for a juice cleanse I would recommend trying out Belmonte Raw. If you’re a beginner, I think three days is sufficient as I found the 4th day really difficult but because I’m super stubborn I continued until the end. If you don’t think a cleanse is right for you, try incorporating juices into your diet. The nutrients that you can get from one juice is the equivalent to sometimes eating pounds of fruits and vegetables, which most of us never do. For more information and to see the various types of cleanses that you can participate in visit BelmonteRaw  and let them know that I sent ya! Belmonte Raw | Christian Confidential

Casual Cool for Summer | Style Post

Forever 21 Men | Christian ConfidentialI’ve been building up my wardrobe, slowly but surely for the summer months. I feel like the last few post I’ve written have all had to do with the excitement of summer but if you live in Canada you definitely understand why. – For all my international readers just bare with me. For me, summer is all about having fun and spontaneous adventures, so I tend to pick out outfits that are super versatile, light and can be worn in various settings. I scored these pretty dope cotton twill shorts from Forever 21 and guess how much they were?! Twelve bucks… not bad! I rarely talk about the price of items as I think you should buy things based on if you really like them or not but I liked these shorts and it was kind of a no brainer at that price point. They also come in a couple other colours. I decided to build on this look with a scoop neck tee, a light denim button down and a pair of kicks from Converse.  This outfit is something I’d wear in a casual setting like; going out for drinks on a patio, a road trip or an afternoon in the park with friends.Forever 21 Men | Christian ConfidentialForever 21 Men | Christian ConfidentialForever 21 Men | Christian ConfidentialWhat I’m Wearing

Summer ‘Conditioning’ | Equinox Made Me Do It

Shockwave | Equinox | Christian ConfidentialWarm weather, laying out by the pool and tropical travel is finally upon us and it seems like it’s here to stay for a few months. This is my favourite time of the year and I plan on making the most of it. That being said, I find that my  regular schedule gets a little more hectic and because of that my training schedule gets a little lighter. If you’re like me, you worked really hard over the winter months to have the body that you want and now is the time to show it off.  Now that I can’t spend as much time in the gym I had to find a way to not only maintain what I’ve worked hard for but still see more results.  

Shockwave | Equinox | Christian ConfidentialShockwave is one of my favourite classes at Equinox and it checks off two main focuses for my summer training program 1. full body workouts and 2. high intensity training. A 45 minute session that gets your heart rate up with various circuit challenges that can consist of rowing, the use of body bars, kettle bells and Bosu balls just to name a few. You know that saying “The more you give, the more you get back”? It’s honestly the truth when it comes to this class, if you go in there and push yourself really hard throughout the whole class, the results can be insane. I definitely recommend trying it out! Shockwave | Equinox | Christian ConfidentialShockwave | Equinox | Christian ConfidentialWhat I’m Wearing

Nautical Aesthetic ft. Lacoste | Style Post

Lacoste | Christian ConfidentialLacoste | Christian ConfidentialThe other night, I went out for a run by the lakeshore with my friend and got inspired. I’ve always been a wanderer looking for my next adventure or an opportunity to learn and there’s something about being near water that encourages that feeling for me. Later that night, I went home and started putting together new looks for the blog and I decided to play up on the whole nautical theme. I paired this navy blue striped sweater with my white denim shorts and my new Lacoste slip-ons that I got from Town Shoes. These kicks will definitely be in heavy rotation this summer since they’re so easy to wear,  super versatile when it comes to pairing with outfits and have a little bit of an edge to them with the inclusion of denim fabric on the upper canvas. I think what I like most about this look is that it’s super clean and embodies a classic more mature feel to it. Now the trick for me will be how to make sure my whites (shorts and slip-ons) stay clean. – Wish me luck!Lacoste | Christian ConfidentialLacoste | Christian ConfidentialWhat I’m Wearing
