Hi guys, I’m back again this week with a new summer street style post. I’ve been realizing more and more that my summer style definitely takes a lot of its inspiration from the west coast. I’m in love with loose fits, flannel shirts, and tanks, which tends to always remind me of the style out in Cali. I love this look, it’s easy, it’s comfortable and different all at the same time. The standout piece in this outfit is obviously…. the sneakers! They’re the latest offering from the Levi’s x Air Jordan 4 collaboration and I must say that they’ve been in heavy rotation from the moment that I got them! The cool thing about these kicks, is the denim texture, the colour way and the classic Jordan silhouette. I wore this look out for lunch and drinks with a few friends over the weekend – I hope you guys like it!

Hi guys, I hope that this week has been treating you well! I styled this look a little while ago and I thought I should share it with you guys on the blog. It’s funny because although I love warm weather, I’d much rather dress for the cold. I started paying closer attention to what I’ve been eyeing for my summer wardrobe and let’s just say for the most part it’s oversized sweatshirts, bomber jackets, ripped denim and the odd pair of shorts haha – I’ve got to fix that! In the meantime, I hope you guys are into this look!
Hi bb’s – I hope that this week is off to a good start for you all. I’m back with a short style post for you guys that might be a little different from what you’re used to from me. The weather is FINALLY starting to warm up in Toronto and with that being said I’m taking full advantage of being able to shoot outside for longer periods of time. I’ve been really into shadows and playing with lighting these days and this is my latest attempt at it! I’m wearing a super comfy track suit courtesy of my friends from the UK – Maniere De Voir. It’s the detailing of this look that got me to wear it along with the fact that it has a total old school vibe. It’s the perfect look to rock to and from the gym and to lounge around in!
In Toronto, we’re still transitioning from winter to spring even though it has technically been spring for some time now…sigh. I put this look together that I feel gives off a warm-ish vibe but is also heavy enough to wear with these up and down temperatures (canadian problems). I’ve always been a sucker for denim jackets, it’s definitely a staple in my closet that I’m sure you guys will be seeing me in a lot this season. I decided to pair this jacket that I got from Forever21, with a white sleeveless sweatshirt, cream-coloured ripped denim and a pair of huaraches. To be honest, this look was built off of all basics or as I usually call them ‘essentials’. They’re the items that you shouldn’t feel bad about purchasing because they’re super versatile and you’ll be able to get your fair share of wears out of them. This look is something, you’d easily find me wearing running around the city, grabbing lunch with a friend and or doing work at Soho House. Continue Reading…

If you pay attention to men’s fashion, you’ve probably noticed an increase in the amount of flannel being carried by your favourite brands or boutiques. I can’t really tell you who started this trend or why all of a sudden it’s becoming more and more popular but I’m not complaining. I love flannel, not all the time but if it’s worn right it can definitely bring your look up a notch. Flannel always makes me think of the west coast and the 90’s, which in my opinion are both amazing. I paired my vintage flannel shirt with a graphic tee, some khaki joggers and my white huaraches. Super clean, super casual and oh so wavy! Continue Reading…
Hi guys – so I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. I styled this ever so comfy yet dope look (in my opinion), that you could probably catch me wearing any day of the week. I’ve always been a fan of graphic tees but tend to struggle in finding the perfect ones – I swear there’s an art to it. Like most things that I like, it has to be the ‘right’ everything for me to rock it or I won’t mess with it at all. While I was in Paris, I picked up this YEEZUS Tour t-shirt and a couple other graphics tees from Eleven Paris. I threw on a pair of loose ripped denim, a grey hoodie, my olive bomber and a pair of roshes to complete the look!
I hope you guys like it!

Can you guys believe that it’s February already?! Honestly, the way that time is flying by,definitely freaks me out. Which kind of leads me to my point for this blog post. Over the last few months, I’ve learned more & more how valuable time truly is and how important it is, not to waste it. Here are a few things that I’ve been putting into action lately and have seen some pretty stellar results so far.
1. If there’s something that you want to do write it down! By writing your goals down it makes you feel more responsible to follow through with them. Brainstorm ideas, create a plan and put it into action. Trust me when I say, nothing feels more fulfilling than being able to check things off your bucket list.
2. Stop caring about what other people think. This one is much easier said than done, but it’s definitely worth attempting. In the past I’ve let the opinions of others prevent me from doing things that I wanted to do and over time realized that if I’m not hurting anyone and it makes me happy, I’m going to do it! Life is too short to not do the things that you love!
3. Cut out the dead weight in your life! Energy is very contagious and being surrounded by people with negative energy is toxic and draining. Don’t get me wrong, we all have bad days but if every interaction with a ‘friend’ or ‘lover’ leaves you feeling some type of way… it’s time to let them go. It can be hard at first but once it’s done you’ll be thankful that you did.
4. Lastly, trust in yourself and the timing of your life. I’ve shared this with you guys before but I can’t stress how important it is. A lot of us hold super high expectations for ourselves and if we don’t meet those expectations by a specific time frame we get really down. I’ve learned that what’s meant to be, will happen when it’s the right time (in all areas of life). Your sole responsibility is to work hard, have patience, be positive and be ready when the opportunity presents itself.

As much as my love for style influences my purchases, my love for comfort comes in as a very close second. I have a low tolerance for being too hot, too cold, too constricted basically anything that makes feel uncomfortable ( I wish I was kidding lol). This look that I put together is the epitome of style + comfort. If you ever see me running around the city in the morning or headed to the gym, chances are that I’m wearing a look that resembles this. It’s clean, put together without being ‘put together’ (it’s never cool to look sloppy) and super comfortable. If you’re in the market for some new ‘comfy’ clothes, these might be some good options for ya!
