I’m really not sure what’s going on with me these days but I’ve fallen in love with the plaid trend this year, more than ever. Maybe it’s my love of everything 90’s and over the winter break I watched a lot of episodes of ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ on Netflix. – Whatever the case may be, I’ve been incorporating a lot more plaid and colour into my outfits these days. Here’s one of my latest plaid purchases from Forever 21, that I paired with some woven suit joggers and my favourite suede red sneakers. I hope you guys like it!What I’m Wearing
Even though I was born and raised in Canada, I’m usually the first one to complain about the cold weather. Not really sure why that is, maybe it’s due to my parents being part Caribbean or that I’m a summer baby but either way it never fails. Except this year.. in Toronto we’ve been pretty lucky, there has been minimal snow and not as cold temperature drops as per usual. – Which has definitely increased the amount of time I spend outdoors :). The other day I shot a few street style looks with blogger and friend Alexander from Alexander Liang.com. I decided to feature my new flight jacket from Forever 21 along with my new winter sneakers from Converse which,both happened to be quilted. I love the look, simple, clean and casual just the way I like it!

The holiday season is well underway and if you’re anything like me you’re probably rummaging through your closet trying to find things to wear for all of those holiday parties. My friends at Forever 21 asked me to put together what I would consider the perfect “holiday party” outfit, and this is what I came up with. Black denim, an oxford shirt, tie, a velveteen blazer & light brown accessories. Feeling comfortable and on trend are two important factors when I consider what to wear and this look checks off both of those boxes. Opting for black denim instead of dress pants keeps me in my comfort zone and deciding to make the highlight of my outfit the velveteen blazer keeps me on trend with almost every holiday collection out there.

It’s beginning to look and feel a lot like fall in Canada, which means it’s time to bundle up and accessorize to stay warm while looking your best. I got the chance to be a little more creative with this style post by collaborating with my Forever 21 family on a little video called ‘Lifestyle Meets Fashion’. (click here to see the video) In this video, I incorporated some of my fall fashion essentials such as knitted cardigans, black denim, chelsea boots & a few accessories. This is the perfect outfit if you’re on the go – allowing you to stay warm, comfortable and stylish at the same time!

If you’ve been shopping for the fall recently, you’ve definitely noticed that plaid is all the rage this season. Whether it be in the form of collared shirts, scarves or t-shirts most likely one of your favourite brands have incorporated it into their Fall/Winter collection. I’m a fan of the trend as long as your wear it right and don’t over do it.. i.e. head to toe in plaid never looked good on anyone. On that note – I decided to pair this oversized tee from Forever 21 with khaki joggers, a leather vest from Canadian designer Ken Chow and rubber chucks from Converse. For me, this is the perfect amount of plaid for an outfit.What I’m Wearing

I decided to kick it real casual with this street style look. – finding some inspiration from two of my fashion favourites Kanye West & Pharell Williams. This to me is the perfect outfit to do all your running around in over the weekend, allowing you to feel comfortable and yet still look stylish at the same time. It’s Thanksgiving for us Canadians so I’m wishing you all a good one! Until next time guys xo!
There’s not too much left of summer but one prominent colour that will be carried over into the fall is military green. I have been obsessed with this colour for quite some time now and although I won’t be able to wear this vest as much, I’m glad that there will be continued opportunities next season to add in a few new staples from this colour way. On that note this is my ode to military green featuring one of my favourite pairs of sneakers from Converse. #ShoesAreBoringWearSneakers!

Travelling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.. & on this travel tour with Forever21 I became richer in knowledge and experience. Take a glance into my recent trip to Barcelona, Spain! A destination filled with beautiful people, amazing architecture, breath taking views and is rich with culture.
Some highlights of my trip included the Picasso Museum & the Museum of Modern Art both located in the Gothic Quarter. The W Hotel provided amazing customer service, the beach was also steps away from the hotel which was a great add on & the famous La Sagrada Familia lived up to all of it’s hype and more.
