The Weekend PT.2

@christianconfidential | The Weekend

So, I don’t want to jinx it but I think that I’m finally getting back into my creative swing again! This last year, I’ve gone through so many ups and downs in various aspects of my life that in all honesty left me unmotivated to do almost anything. Hence, why I haven’t been as consistent in creating content as I have in the past. I’m learning more and more that the answer to getting out of my feelings for me is to not put too much pressure on myself and to just fight through it. A little advice that a friend gave me that I’d like to share with you guys is; to not let what’s happening in your life right now distract you from the bigger picture.. – If you keep that in mind, it’ll make the tough times a lot easier! I felt like I needed to share a little about this with you guys just because I would never want you guys to think that I don’t take this platform seriously. Some of  you guys have been on this journey with me from the jump and I appreciate it so much!

Anyways, that’s enough with all the feelings for today and now onto this look!  It’s cool, it’s cozy, it’s me… on the weekend. You can catch me in something like this on a Saturday, heading to a casual brunch, going shopping or hanging out with friends. I love the athletic and minimal aesthetic to it. It’s doing something for me but not too much! I’m into it, I hope y’all are too!

Ps. I’m going to give you a warning to expect these Alexander Wang x Adidas Originals collaboration sneakers to show up a lot, I’m still obsessed with them and they just continue to stay in heavy rotation!

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!

Athleisure Moment

@christianconfidential

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!

The Weekend

@christianconfidential Hi guys, I’m back on the blog today with a new style post just in time for the weekend.  This look is totally my vibe right now, it’s clean, it’s casual and has a little dapper twist to it. I’m usually not the person to mix collared shirts with athletic apparel but for this outfit, it just works for me. I paired my oversized collared shirt with a pair of aqua blue track pants and my new ultra boost sneakers to complete the look.  This is that fun outfit that you can wear confidently to brunch, to run errands or to just hang out on a patio with friends sipping rosé.

Ps. Rosé has definitely become my obsession this summer, that and the new album CTRL by SZA!!!

Nuuuu Wave


@christianconfidential 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!

Lack of Communication

@christianconfidential

So it’s been a while since I’ve last posted on the blog and I feel like I owe you guys an explanation. The last couple of months have been very interesting to say the least and I needed some time to really reflect on what I’ve been feeling and what’s going to be my next move. I don’t necessarily have the answer as of yet but I feel like I’m in a better place to pick up where I left off. I’ll go into further details about this in another blog post but I just wanted to let you guys know that I didn’t forget about you and that I’m working on a few things personally and professionally that I’ll be sharing with you guys soon!

Something that I’m excited about, is a feature that I shot with Urban Outfitters earlier this week that will be coming out in July on their social channels and website! This is a look that I styled for them that I’m totally feeling right now. I’d like to think that this look is a mash up of retro + island vibes. It’s a dope look that I would wear on a cooler (weather wise) summer day with friends either checking out Kensington Market or heading to a backyard party.

Something Tells Me


@christianconfidentialHi 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!

Downtown Moments with Kenneth Cole

@christianconfidential 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!

@christianconfidential |  kanye west @christianconfidential |  kanye west 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!
