It’s finally feeling like spring in Toronto, which I honestly can’t be more about happy about. We didn’t have a bad winter (temperature wise) but it was a very dragged out one. The older that I get, I’m convinced that I was meant to live somewhere warm all year round. I’m such a happier and productive person, it’s literally like night and day!
That being said, I’ve partnered with Prada fragrances on a social media campaign for the year and I’ve just released the second edition of the partnership. This time around we were working on digital content for their latest fragrance Prada L’Eau, which came out at the perfect moment in my opinion. The fragrance is filled with floral notes, hints of amber and red ginger – I think you guys will really like it!
For me, I always opt for fragrances that are lighter in scent and have a fresh airy vibe to them and Prada L’Eau definitely embodies all of those features. Whenever I spray it on myself, it reminds me of being somewhere tropical or the Mediterranean enjoying a night out wearing linen and just having a great time!
Since, I wasn’t able to recreate that exact vision (sigh, Imagine I was able to shoot this project in Greece LOL), I opted to shoot my images wearing linen, playing with shadows and utilizing the sun. I was really happy with how the photos came out and I hope that you guys enjoy them as well!
I’ll never turn down a chance to visit New York and I’ll never visit New York without spending at least a day in Soho. There’s something about this area that really resonates with me and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The architecture, the colour palette, the boutiques, the cafés, the restaurants, I just can’t get enough!
I was in a mood this day and felt like dressing a little different than my usual ensembles. I got these plaid pants from H&M before heading to New York and thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to break them in. I love the way that the outfit came together and Soho made for the perfect back drop to capture these photos – I hope that you guys enjoy them!

It’s been a whirlwind of a time, both good and bad over the last few weeks for me. I, honestly haven’t had this bad of ‘growing pains’ in a very long time. Things that used to fulfill me don’t seem to cut it anymore and finding the answer as to what I need to do differently to correct those feelings haven’t been the easiest. Sometimes I wish that life could just be as easy as getting dressed comes to me but unfortunately it’s not. Long story short, my apologies again for not being as active as I usually am on the blog but thank you guys for riding with me.
Here’s a look that I styled over the weekend that I hope that you guys like. I’m mixing some old items with a few new ones with this look. A pair of loose denim, an old light weight bomber, a basic long sleeve tee and my new Alexander Wang for Adidas Originals sneakers.
Hi guys, a little over a month ago I had the opportunity to shoot some cool content with Kenneth Cole for their Spring/Summer 2017 footwear collection. I’ve been a fan of Kenneth Cole for quite some time now, as it’s one of those classic brands that never go out of style.
That being said, I shot three looks with them and this outfit was definitely my favourite! It’s crazy because I don’t dress up that often but when I do, I tend to like the way it all comes together! I decided to pair the brands Skate-Trick Leather-Combo shoes with some grey cuffed dress pants, a turtle neck (it’s still cold in Toronto) and a black motorcycle jacket to give the look a little more edge – I hope that you guys like 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
Three weeks into 2017 and I’m in Paris for Men’s Fashion Week – I really can’t complain! I absolutely love this city, it’s edge and style just completely moves me. I’m not sure if you noticed but recently, I decided to go BLONDE! I’ve wanted to try this for a while now and finally just said fuck it, lets just do it! I had to find the right outfit to debut it and I think this whole look came together perfectly! I decided to pair my new red serrated jacket with a comfy oversized sweatshirt, a pair of wide leg joggers, some high knee socks and some fresh X_PLR’s to complete the look. I hope that you guys are into it as much as I am! Now let’s see how much trouble I can get into over here haha!

Hi guys – So I’m back tonight with a nuuuu style post! I’ve actually been shooting quite a bit of content that I can’t wait to share with you all! It’s crazy because when fall usually arrives and the temperature starts to drop, it usually takes the MOST out of me to get outside but thankfully we’ve been having some good weather in Toronto! Anyways, back to this look – I’m really into it! I’m wearing a new hoodie from my friends over at BALR. that I paired with some loose distressed denim, a nude long line bomber & some white sneakers. It’s cool, it’s cozy aka the perfect fit for fall!

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!
