Hey guys, I hope that you’re all doing well. Can you believe we’re already eleven days into December and I haven’t even started my Christmas shopping yet?!? I just came back from a two-day trip to New York with Adidas that I can’t wait to share but in the meantime I put together a little style post for you guys.
It’s December 1st and as I sit down and write this travel post, I must say that the last half of this year has truly been a blessed one. One of the things that I love about being a blogger is that it opens doors to opportunities that can sometimes be life changing. Last month I got the opportunity to travel to the island of Tobago and learn a little bit about their lifestyle and fashion.
The great people at Fashion Vanguard invited us down to check out their inaugural fashion buyers exhibition. This exhibition showcased 9 reputable designers with roots from the island.
I, of course had my favourites and gravitated towards more of your staples/essentials from a brand titled I Say U Clothing. It’s cool to see what works in regards to fashion in other parts of the world and it’s even cooler to see the influence of different cultures reflected in the garments. Linen (for it’s breathability, I’m sure) was a common fabric used throughout a lot of the featured designers especially the menswear line, Millhouse. Neoprene, which is one of my favourite materials this year was very well displayed throughout some of the womenswear designers such as, Lush Kingdom.

Beautiful weather, friendly people and great food (I tried shark for the first time), I’m not really sure what else I could’ve asked for. We spent some time at Pigeon Point beach, partied at the infamous ‘Shade’ nightclub and relaxed by the pool at our villa. All in all, this was a great experience and Tobago is filled with hidden gems and treasure both in fashion and lifestyle. If you’re looking for a destination to unwind and reflect, Tobago is a destination to consider. A special thank you to everyone that made our stay what it was especially; Jamilia, Karen, Kery & Kevon.
Until next time,
Hey guys, the weekend is finally upon us! If you’ve had a crazy week like I did, it’s time to let loose and turn all the way up! I put together a new style post that I think you guys are going to like. It’s simple, yet fun and oh so dope in my books. Let’s just say it’s a more edgy take on the ‘Canadian Tuxedo’. I grabbed my vintage denim vest, a grey long line sweatshirt, my new favourite pair of light wash denim and my latest kicks from Lacoste, the Showcourt. A classic silhouette from the brand with premium leather and intricate details that make them fairly easy to dress up or down. Naturally, I dressed them down! This is the perfect look if you’re looking for something that’ll give you comfort + style at the same time.

As promised, we’re back this week with part two of our ‘Street Style’ guide! The thing that I love about street style and fashion in general is that it’s totally your choice of how creative or simple you want to be with it. I always tell my boys that finding a happy medium within those two ends of the spectrum is the best way to go.
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.
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.
