Hi guys – I hope that you all had a great weekend! For me, I feel like it came and went so quickly but that’s usually how I feel when I’m having a lot of fun. Last weekend was pretty busy with personal stuff and events but I still managed to shoot a style post. This look is giving me total retro + weekend vibes. It’s definitely not going to be for everyone but it works for me and hopefully some of you fashion risk takers! I decided to pair some denim overalls with an oversized hoodie, some high socks and the new Puma Tsugi Shinsei sneakers. It’s cozy, there’s a pop of colour and totally something I feel comfortable and confident in!
Hi guys, a little over a month ago I had the opportunity to shoot some cool content with Kenneth Cole for their Spring/Summer 2017 footwear collection. I’ve been a fan of Kenneth Cole for quite some time now, as it’s one of those classic brands that never go out of style.
That being said, I shot three looks with them and this outfit was definitely my favourite! It’s crazy because I don’t dress up that often but when I do, I tend to like the way it all comes together! I decided to pair the brands Skate-Trick Leather-Combo shoes with some grey cuffed dress pants, a turtle neck (it’s still cold in Toronto) and a black motorcycle jacket to give the look a little more edge – I hope that you guys like it!
Hi guys, I’m back on the blog today with a look that I’m totally obsessed with. It’s super casual, super cozy but at the same time definitely a conversation starter. Maybe it’s the shoes, maybe it’s the joggers or maybe it’s the outfit altogether but I’ve received a lot of compliments on it. I decided to debut the new Yeezy Boost 350 V2‘s in cream white, (which dropped last saturday) with this look! These kicks are definitely in my top 3 from all of Kanye’s shoe drops with Adidas and our the perfect shoe for summer 2017. The cream white colorway gives these kicks an even more minimal + futuristic vibe than the other V2’s which is definitely my speed. I’m giving you guys a heads up, you’ll definitely be seeing these pop up more than a few times in my outfits over the summer haha!

Hi guys, I hope that this week has been treating you well so far! This week has been pretty crazy for me and it’s only Wednesday (eeek!), that being said I’m back on the blog today to share my latest style collaboration with Uniqlo Canada.
You guys know that my style is heavily influenced by my mood and being that I’m a gemini, it changes almost every hour (I wish I was joking lol), kind of like my daily schedule. Some days are spent locked away at home editing photos and creating pitches, while others are full with photo shoots, meetings and events. On my busy social days it’s important for me to pick out clothes that are versatile and can be worn in multiple settings. This look that I put together with Uniqlo is the perfect example of one of those days!
A white short sleeve tee tucked into a pair of relaxed fit navy ankle pants, some white low-top sneakers, glasses and a light weight oversized coat (it’s spring so the weather is moodier than I am), does more than the trick for me!
The key piece in a day-to-night outfit is essentially, the pants. I tend to go for a darker colour way as it’s always viewed as more sleek and in my opinion more versatile for different settings. These ankle pants have a relaxed fit and a belt-like elastic waist that makes them much more comfortable than your standard chino or dress pants. If you see me on the streets, 8 out of 10 times, i’ll have a bag/backpack with me. It usually has my laptop, a camera, some cologne and a spare piece of clothing or two.
Which leads me right into my night look. I changed the colour of my day shirt and shoes to black. Like I mentioned earlier about a darker colour way for the pants being viewed as more sleek, the same rule goes for your tops and footwear. Even though, I am still wearing sneakers (very rarely will you catch me in dress shoes), I feel much more comfortable and confident in my look to potentially attend an evening media preview, a restaurant opening or even a date over cocktails (very rare scenario). Either way, when it comes to having to dress for different events and lugging around a suitcase with multiple outfits isn’t an options, always remember to 1. keep it simple 2. make sure that you’re comfortable 3. choose the base of your outfit wisely!

So… it legit feels like it’s been forever since I’ve last posted but here I am with some new material for you guys! Last week I was working on a cool lifestyle project with a Toronto based home interior company (Merchant Sons) that allowed me to involve some of my close friends in the process. Jason and Daniel aka my brothers and I spent an afternoon with a camera crew visiting some of the hidden gems in my neighbourhood. I love ‘working’ with these guys because it literally feels like we’re just hanging out. Daniel always has a new story to share and Jason is always full of positive energy.
Our last shoot location for the day was at a minimally designed coffee shop called, PUB PRK (Public Park). The Café had a dope concrete wall across from it that I noticed and instantly wanted to shoot on. Earlier in the day, I styled the guys (and myself) in some of my favourite casual pieces and once we wrapped for the day we shot for a bit. The thing that I like most about these looks are that they’re all lit on their own but when they’re all captured together, the vibe is brought to another level. Each look is different but has an athletic, casual, spring vibe to them that ties them all together. Stay tuned to see the final project featured on the blog later this week but in the meantime enjoy the fashion aspect of it!
What I’m Wearing
So… these last two weeks have been pretty hectic on my end. I’m not sure if I shared this with you guys before but there’s something going on in the universe right now and I feel like there’s a huge shift that’s going to happen in my life and I’m just trying to prepare for it. I’ve been getting a lot of subtle signs and it’s caused me to be more present in my everyday life, which I tend to struggle with but honestly, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I just want this ‘thing’ to happen already (I have the patience of a two-year old sometimes haha)! I’m convinced that it either has something to do with my career path or my love life. I don’t want to assume too much as to what it’s going to be but either way I’m excited for it! Anyways… enough about all of that, let’s talk about this look that I put together over the weekend! I am in love with its simplicity yet how much attention it demands at the same time. Sticking to a pretty simple colour scheme, I wanted to make a bold statement with the pieces that I chose to incorporate within this outfit without being ‘too loud’. I just got this black jacket (not to be mistaken as a bath robe haha) the other day from ASOS and I’m obsessed with it. It’s so cozy and oversized and just plays well with so many pieces. I paired this jacket with a grey hoodie, some black joggers and the ‘zebra’ Yeezy 350 V2’s. This look is totally me at the moment, it’s fun it’s understated yet something you won’t forget. I hope that you guys are into it!

So… I’m not sure if you guys have been noticing but I’ve been really getting into (more than usual) pieces of clothing that promote movement and flow. Wether it’s loose fitting joggers, long-line jackets or oversized hoodies, I love the theatrics that these items can create. Under the artistic direction of Christophe Lemaire, Uniqlo recently launched their second #UniqloU collection and let’s just say they’ve mastered that whole aesthetic. If you’re coming to the blog from social media, you probably saw me playing with this look amongst a few others during a fitting I had with the brands Canadian counterpart. With your guys help via Insta-Story (thank you xox) I narrowed down my favourite pieces from the collection to create this look! From the joggers, to the hoodie, to the coat, these are all dope items that can be easily integrated into my current wardrobe or worn all together like this. I’m pretty happy with the end results, check out a few more pics below and let me know what you think!

Even though there’s currently some snow on the ground in Toronto, it’s time to start thinking about adding some new items to our wardrobe for spring! For the majority of 2017, I’ve been all over the whole athleisure look and I definitely foresee it continuing. I’ve been doing a lot of browsing on the internet lately and putting together some style boards to get a better sense of what I’ll need to buy to start the season off right, which I’ll share with you guys at a later date. That being said, I recently learned about a newly launched line of sneakers from my friends over at ECCO Canada called ECCO Mens Cool 2.0 GTX Textile, that I was pretty amped to test out! Two main features about these shoes that make it a perfect spring option is that it’s waterproof and its breathability. You guys know me, so… as important as key features are to me, a good sneaker has to also hold its own within the style department as well. I got my hands on a pair of the all-white C00l 2.0’s and put them to the test by pairing them with this monochrome look. A basic oversized hoodie, a long-line tank, some track pants and high knee socks! I think they paired pretty well, don’t you?

Hi bb’s – I swear it feels like every other entry I write on here, it’s fashion week somewhere in the world haha! Although it’s currently Ready To Wear in Paris, I’m excited to be covering a few things for Toronto Men’s Fashion Week (TOM), which kicks off today! Tonight, I’ll be heading over to the tents to check out canadian designers Hip and Bone and Kollar Clothing! Both brands are known for their street style aesthetic so I’m amped to see what they’ve got in store for F/W 17. If you’re heading over to the tents tonight, catch me outside in this look! I just got this cream long-line bomber and I’m currently obsessed with it. I’m going for a more understated but cool vibe today, just because that’s the mood that I’m in!
