Hey homies, did you miss me? I’m back on the blog today with some new style content that I think you guys are going to really like. If you’ve been following me on social media for a while, you’ve probably noticed a shift in my content over the last 6 months. For so long, I’ve been creating content that followed a very minimal, clean and somewhat restrictive aesthetic. I loved it and I think that you guys did too but in order to keep growing creatively, it’s always best to change things up. Since earlier this year, I’ve been experimenting with more colours, different shoot locations (no more all white, grey and black backgrounds) and different ways of editing my pictures. I’m really liking the direction that my content has been going in and I’ve really started to embrace the challenge.
This specific style post really embodies the new wave that I’ve been on in so many ways. I love the choice of the bold colour joggers (℅ Puma), the edgy shoot location and the use of shadows and lighting.
In regards to this look, I would describe it as athleisure meets street. I love how all of the pieces flow together and the colours tie into each another. Depending on how hot it is, you could catch me downtown doing a million things in this look. It’s comfortable, it’s stylish and makes a bold statement all at the same time!
Hi guys – I hope that you all had a great weekend! For me, I feel like it came and went so quickly but that’s usually how I feel when I’m having a lot of fun. Last weekend was pretty busy with personal stuff and events but I still managed to shoot a style post. This look is giving me total retro + weekend vibes. It’s definitely not going to be for everyone but it works for me and hopefully some of you fashion risk takers! I decided to pair some denim overalls with an oversized hoodie, some high socks and the new Puma Tsugi Shinsei sneakers. It’s cozy, there’s a pop of colour and totally something I feel comfortable and confident in!
Since I started Christian Confidential (which seems like forever ago), my life has changed in so many ways. I’ve been very fortunate to have been able to work on some really cool projects, travel to places that I’ve only dreamed of and build some really great friendships along the way. That being said, when you’re running your own business it’s very easy to get caught up in all of the day-to-day tasks that you never really get a chance to ‘clock out’ from work. Over time, I’ve learned that this type of living is not sustainable and sooner than later you’ll end up burning out. It’s a tricky balance to try and grasp, especially if you’re a control freak (ahem meeee) and want to be involved in everything!
Three years ago, I spent a few months abroad living in Paris and really took a liking to their ‘way of living’. My favourite day of the week out there always happened to be Sunday. The energy of the city was different, there was a very ‘laid back’, ‘do things on your own time’ type of vibe that I loved. Since being back in Toronto, I’ve attempted to integrate that same ‘way of living’ as much as I can into my own life. Sunday is the one day for me, where I can wake up late (guilt-free) and put no real pressure on myself to complete things.
My friends over at Merchant Sons, a new home decor retailer based out of Toronto, Canada asked me to describe what the ‘perfect Sunday‘ looks like to me and instead of just telling them, I decided to take them along with me (and you guys, of course).
Like I mentioned earlier, on Sunday I do as little or as much as I want. I may stay in bed until 11:00am and watch the latest release on Netflix (Chewing Gum, anyone?) or flip through magazines. I may go to the gym or I may go for a run through the city. I might meet up with the boys and grab brunch or an early dinner, or I might go catch a movie on my own.
For me, Sunday’s are about things being easy, which is also what I love about Merchant Sons. They create practical things that we all use on a regular basis with a mantra in mind of making life easier. Whether it’s cozy bedding sets, scented candles, blankets or pillows they’re all made to look great, provide comfort and support your lifestyle!
In collaboration with Merchant Sons, my team and I put together a little video + photos, giving you guys a glimpse into what a typical Sunday can look like for me. The main message that I want you guys to take away from this post is to always make time for yourself. As important as it is to work hard to achieve and attain the things that you want it’s just as important to recharge, reflect and relax.
Hi guys, so I’m really into this look that I put together for a project that I styled for Puma. It’s clean, it’s comfortable and very true to my style. For me, it’s all about finding subtle ways to differentiate yourself from others without being over the top. I think that’s why I love overalls, to some people it’s a lot but opting for a pair in black can bring it down a notch and has definitely become a go-to for me. I paired these overalls with a striped neoprene tee from DOPE and my new Puma suedes – I hope you guys like it!
