I don’t think I’ve ever embraced bright colours as much as I did on my recent trip to New Orleans. It’s crazy what visiting a new city and having some good weather will do to your personal style. I’m really loving the risks that I took with this look. It’s different from my everyday outfits but it really works, at least for me. I decided to keep it light and bright in terms of colours and tones. This is a look that I’d wear for a day of exploring or to attend an outdoor gathering in the Spring. It’s light and loose fitting, allowing you to breath and feel comfortable in warm weather.

So… I’m back on the blog today from the beautiful city known as New Orleans! I let you guys know that I was taking a random trip out here and didn’t know what to expect and let’s just say that it’s the best decision I’ve made in 2018 thus far. I don’t want to say too much until I share my photo diary but I couldn’t wait to post this Boho inspired look, that I shot.
This look is different from what you’re probably used to seeing from me but I’m branching out a little and really trying to embrace new styles this year. I always use clothes as a way to express myself and right now I’m feeling very light hearted, creative and open minded. I wore this look out to lunch on my second day in New Orleans and loved it so much that I just HAD to shoot it. It’s colourful, it’s light and gives off an elevated Boho vibe!
I’ve got a couple more looks that I shot out here + my photo diary that I can’t wait to share with you all!

First off, are you guys as into this parka as much as I am?!?! Right before heading to New York for Men’s Fashion Week, I stopped by the COS showroom for some inspiration and I noticed this jacket – I knew that I had to have it! I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it but I knew that it was such an iconic piece that I would make it work. I wanted to keep this look super casual and athletic, so I paired this oversized parka with a classic tank, some white joggers and my new Cortez sneakers (you’ll see me wearing these a lot).
This look won’t be for everyone but if you’re confident and have some height on ya (I’m 6’0 feet), I’d definitely recommend trying to rock something like this. It’s so bad ass and functional at the same time!

New York Fashion Week… (sigh) where do I even begin? I told you guys that I was originally set to be in New York for a cool project that I was filming that coincided with Fashion Week (Women’s). I decided to extend my stay in the city to explore, shop and see a few more shows + presentations. I’ve only been to Fashion Week in New York once before which was a lot of fun but this time around the whole experience was kicked up to another level.
One thing that I’ve learned when it comes to traveling + work is that, it’s so important to have a great team with you and good friends (Shayna, Sean, Jay + Vanessa) – it really makes the experience so much better! From attending shows, to shooting street style, to presentations + appointments, late dinners to the after parties… there was never a dull moment.
As always, I had my camera with me + iPhone 7 (the camera changed my life, review coming shortly) documenting as much of my time away as I could. Keep scrolling down to see some of my favourite moments.
Shows + Presentations included in this post:
Club Monaco, Lacoste, Nina Tiari, J.Crew, Vivienne Tam, Chanel
So, I’m back this week with another style post that I think you guys will love (at least, I really do haha)! This look incorporates a lot of my favourite pieces at the moment: chelsea boots, destroyed denim, an oversized sweatshirts and a trench coat… yes a trench coat! I could’ve left the coat out of the equation but I think it brings the look up a notch and gives it more of an edge. I had to find a cool location to shoot this outfit and some how I stumbled on a cool grungy alleyway in Yorkville (if you’re familiar with this area, you know it’s not that easy to find) that totally matched my aesthetic. This season, I see myself experimenting a bit more with colours and shapes so expect to see more variation. Will you guys be taking any chances with your looks this season?

Recently, I’ve noticed that I’ve been drawn to anything and everything with a bit of a dramatic flare to it! What I mean by that is, oversized tops, long-length jackets and wide leg pants (not to be confused with wide leg denim YUCK haha). I put this look together right after planning a future trip to New York and I think that’s where the grungy, yet hipster influence came from. I went with a neutral colour scheme and used accessories (boots + tuque) to give it some personality. I have a love/hate relationship with Dr. Martens, I can’t wear them everyday (sometimes they make my feet look too BIG) but with the right outfit they’re mad dope – I hope you guys are into it!

Hi guys, so I’m STILL going through my photos from Paris and wanted to share this look that I wore c/o COS for Men’s Fashion Week! I’ve really grown to love the brand, as I feel that a lot of their collection reflects my aesthetic – clean, minimal and oversized. I wore this outfit to Sean Suen’s SS17 presentation, which was one of my favourite shows this season! To me, this look was perfect for the occasion – wearing regular dress shirts aren’t always my thing but the oversize twist to this one had me excited to style it. I paired it with some light pleated trousers, rose gold accessories (yes, I said rose gold) and white sneakers – are you into it?
