Hi guys – I hope that life has been treating you really well! Life for me (as always) has kind of been a whirlwind of ups and downs. Man, trying to figure out the next steps for your life can become so time consuming, it’s like can someone just give me the answers and I’ll make it all happen haha. In all honesty though, I’ve been working really hard on figuring out exactly what makes me happy and what are the next steps that I need to take to propel my personal life and career to the next level. I just want to live my best life in my zone of excellence moving forward.
That’s enough about my personal life right now, let’s talk about this look! Recently, I was asked to participate in a campaign for Yorkville Village (a small but cute community close to downtown Toronto). Although I don’t ‘live’ in Yorkville, it’s basically become my second home. My gym is located there (Catalyst), some of my favourite restaurants are in the area and my friends own one of the coolest boutiques there aka CNTRBND. This look is casual, light and has a rebel flair to it. You could easily catch me wearing something like this on a regular day in the area. I hope 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!

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!

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
I got my hands on the new Yeezy’s and obviously I couldn’t wait to style them. The print on these kicks are probably the boldest that I’ve seen from the Kanye West x Adidas Originals collaboration and will definitely be the statement piece of your outfit. That being said, I decided to pair them with some joggers, a hoodie + a navy trench (which in my opinion, totally elevates the look). It’s cozy, it’s casual aka the perfect vibe to kick off the weekend.
One of the things that I love most about having a blog is being able to look back at photos (old or recent) and relive the moments all over again! I’m currently laying in bed while I write this post and I’m remembering how cold it was last week in New York and the lengths that we went through to get a few of these shots. Contrary to what you see in these photos, there was so much snow around and my photographer and I managed to find this little corner near our hotel, to shoot this look before we headed to Club Monaco‘s presentation for NYFW. The hustle and bustle of this city even in the boroughs (Upper West Side) is so real, it just gets you in the zone of thinking you can accomplish anything. It’s really crazy because even though I was out there working, I swear I was having the best time. If this trip has taught me anything in life, it’s that sometimes you just have to take life into your own hands. If you’re passionate about something, don’t just follow it, chase it down! When you do, the Universe will work with you to make things happen.
As I’ve mentioned before I’ve been pretty committed to my street wear aesthetic and post was no exception. This look is to the point with some edge aka the perfect combo for the streets of New York.

I’m back today with a casual style post that I’m sure you guys will be in to. It’s actually crazy to see how much Kanye West has been able to inspire street culture in such a short amount of time. Love him or hate him (I love him, obviously), you can’t deny his style influence. This look was definitely inspired by him, from the colour palette, to the fit, it’s vey Yeezy-esque. I grabbed this sweatshirt and joggers from Zara during a sale, the other day. I see myself playing with these tones in the fall, so to me, they were good purchases. I decided to pair them with my beige Tubulars from Adidas and a cap from Project X Paris. You’ll catch me in an outfit like this while running errands, doing stylist pulls or having a cozy day with friends.

This right here, that’s my shit! Is it just me or don’t you find that your best outfits are created when you don’t try? I love this look and it’s so me right now – minimal, monochromatic, comfortable and stylish. This t-shirt was a recent purchase from Colette (a MUST visit when you’re in Paris) by a brand called, Les Artists. I decided to pair it with classic Adidas track pants, hi-socks and a pair of all white sneakers. I hope you guys like it!
