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.

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!

So… it legit feels like it’s been forever since I’ve last posted but here I am with some new material for you guys! Last week I was working on a cool lifestyle project with a Toronto based home interior company (Merchant Sons) that allowed me to involve some of my close friends in the process. Jason and Daniel aka my brothers and I spent an afternoon with a camera crew visiting some of the hidden gems in my neighbourhood. I love ‘working’ with these guys because it literally feels like we’re just hanging out. Daniel always has a new story to share and Jason is always full of positive energy.
Our last shoot location for the day was at a minimally designed coffee shop called, PUB PRK (Public Park). The Café had a dope concrete wall across from it that I noticed and instantly wanted to shoot on. Earlier in the day, I styled the guys (and myself) in some of my favourite casual pieces and once we wrapped for the day we shot for a bit. The thing that I like most about these looks are that they’re all lit on their own but when they’re all captured together, the vibe is brought to another level. Each look is different but has an athletic, casual, spring vibe to them that ties them all together. Stay tuned to see the final project featured on the blog later this week but in the meantime enjoy the fashion aspect of it!

Hi bb’s – I swear it feels like every other entry I write on here, it’s fashion week somewhere in the world haha! Although it’s currently Ready To Wear in Paris, I’m excited to be covering a few things for Toronto Men’s Fashion Week (TOM), which kicks off today! Tonight, I’ll be heading over to the tents to check out canadian designers Hip and Bone and Kollar Clothing! Both brands are known for their street style aesthetic so I’m amped to see what they’ve got in store for F/W 17. If you’re heading over to the tents tonight, catch me outside in this look! I just got this cream long-line bomber and I’m currently obsessed with it. I’m going for a more understated but cool vibe today, just because that’s the mood that I’m in!

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
So, I’m back in Toronto after a whirlwind of fun during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris and yes – still blonde. I’ve been having a lot of fun with it, I think I may keep it for a while longer. It’s still unbearably cold here (I’m a little dramatic, I know), so I put this cozy look together that I hope that you guys will like. I’ve been really into colour lately, like REALLY into it as you can probably see from this outfit. In my opinion, my coral sweatshirt gives this street look more life as opposed to a more muted colour alternative. It might not be for everyone but right now it’s definitely doing it for me.

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!

So… I’m back from Paris with a bunch of style content that I’m excited to share with you guys! I shot this super casual yet LA inspired outfit – one afternoon while exploring the 5th arrondissement. I love this look as it’s literally what you would find me wearing on a hot day in Toronto. It’s casual, it’s light and gives off an effortless vibe all in one! I’ve always really liked graphic/band tees but this year more than ever they’ve become a staple in my wardrobe. I threw on my favourite ripped denim shorts, a pair of Huaraches and a new flannel I scored on sale at Urban Outfitters!

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!
