The last few days in Toronto have been pretty amazing. It’s crazy to see how much the change in weather has really impacted the city. The patios, the malls and the sports stadiums have been packed all weekend. Like everyone else, I took advantage of the warm weather and shot some looks for the blog. It’s official, I’ve definitely jumped on the coloured pants/denim craze and I’m not mad about it. I got these blue belted chinos along with this button down dress shirt from Forever 21.I think they pair really nicely together, and give off a clean preppy vibe. I’m thinking this could potentially be this seasons uniform. – It’s comfortable and classic yet the variety in colours gives it a modern twist. What I’m Wearing
Another Fashion Week has come and gone in Toronto and If you work in the Canadian fashion industry , last week was probably one of the busiest times of the year for you. I know for myself it was jammed packed with attending shows, fittings, castings, social gatherings, after parties and everything else in between. I had a few different looks that I put together for the week but I wanted to showcase this all black get up that I put together, it was definitely the highlight of them all for me. I’m not the biggest enthusiast for turtlenecks but I decided to put it into play with a black blazer, marled knit joggers and my suede chelsea boots. I think in the end, the look came together really nicely – giving off a very dapper look while providing comfort all at the same time. What I’m Wearing
Whenever I’m asked to describe my style, I usually say that I dress the way that I feel but if I had to check off a box; it would be a mix between street chic and American prep. For the longest while, I’ve been really into the whole street chic look you know leather, ripped denim, and oversized tees but ever since the season changed I’ve been falling back in love with more of my preppy side. Layering is one of my favourite things to do in the fall and with the access to beautiful pull overs, shirts and khakis I decided to take full advantage with this style post. I layered a blue pullover from The Gap over a classic white oxford shirt a pair of khaki joggers and crisp white kicks from Lacoste. I hope you like this style as much as I do!What I’m Wearing

It’s the second week of August which means two things here in Toronto; 1 – there’s only a few ‘good’ weather weeks left for us & 2 – it’s time to start thinking about your fall wardrobe. The thing I love the most about fall is being able to add levels to your outfits effortlessly through layering. I tend to start my fall shopping by purchasing the basics first; sweaters, sweatshirts, basic tees, the standard pants & denim for the season. This style post I did with Forever 21 will give you a little bit of insight of how I’ll be building my outfits this fall.

Spring is finally here! The weather is touch & go but I’m definitely making the effort to embrace a lighter colour palette in my day-to-day wear. For this post I’ve kept it clean and casual with a white tee & cream coloured cotton pants that have the comfort of joggers but the structure of denim – talk about win-win! To throw some colour into the mix I added this rose plaid shirt from Forever 21 & a pair of flashy Air Tech Challenge II’s to complete my outfit. The shoes are the result of a great collaboration between tennis-great Andre Agassi & Nike – they have been a hot item since they were released in January, get them if you can – you won’t be disappointed!

Today’s look is all about keeping it clean & simple. I feel like you can never go wrong with a denim shirt and I love these joggers – the standard khaki is brought a little fashion forward with the addition of an elastic cuff. With some leg to show it was easy to choose a pair of white Chuck’s – bright & white they kept everything right. This is a great look for a relaxed setting – brunch, a movie date or even a house party.
You can find both the denim shirt and the joggers on canada.forever21.com
