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!

Hey guys, the weekend is finally upon us! If you’ve had a crazy week like I did, it’s time to let loose and turn all the way up! I put together a new style post that I think you guys are going to like. It’s simple, yet fun and oh so dope in my books. Let’s just say it’s a more edgy take on the ‘Canadian Tuxedo’. I grabbed my vintage denim vest, a grey long line sweatshirt, my new favourite pair of light wash denim and my latest kicks from Lacoste, the Showcourt. A classic silhouette from the brand with premium leather and intricate details that make them fairly easy to dress up or down. Naturally, I dressed them down! This is the perfect look if you’re looking for something that’ll give you comfort + style at the same time.

Lately, I’ve been embracing the whole less is more notion when it comes dressing. I’m not sure if it’s just because it’s summer and I just wanna feel comfortable in the heat or my taste is slowly changing. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always love layering but sometimes it’s cool to just keep it really, really simple. I wore a pair of white ripped denim, with a long line muscle tee and my favourite red sneakers. It was Canada Day on July 1st, so you can say that I might have taken a little style Inspiration from it. I hope you guys like this look as much as I do!

Hi guys, I’ve decided to switch things up slightly with this post and focus a little more on life rather than style. The last few weeks for me have been a little frustrating to say the least. I don’t know if it’s just the weather or something in my subconscious that was trying to reveal itself but something was definitely off. I’m a Gemini so I know that my spirit is very sensitive and can be easily affected by the different types of energy that surrounds me but this time around I just couldn’t shake those negative vibes. I took some time to myself to try and reflect, hence the limited posting action but I’m back and feeling much better! Whenever I’m down I tend to read more and search for inspirational quotes and I always come back to this one idea; trusting your journey. Things are going to happen and you’re going to have rough patches in every area of your life (personal, health, career, finance etc..) but it all happens for a reason. You just have to believe that there’s a lesson to be learned in every misfortune and that those times or events really help shape the person you’re meant to be.
About a month ago I had a feature in IN Magazine where the focus was on sexuality in sports. I was asked to provide a quote that depicted the best life lesson that I’ve learned so far and I’d like to share it with you guys as well; “Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny” – C.S Lewis
I’ve held onto that quote for some time now and I recently found another quote that inspired the direction of this style post; Don’t confuse your path with your destination. Just because it’s stormy now doesn’t mean that you aren’t headed for sunshine. To some, this quote might sound juvenile but for me I saw it at the right time and it really resonated with me. Personally, I just felt that I owed you guys an explanation for my disappearance and I also just wanted to share my reaffirmed learnings! I hope your week is off to a great start and that you’re staying warm! #ItsBeenAColdWinter #SharingIsCaring Outfit details below!

I decided to kick it real casual with this street style look. – finding some inspiration from two of my fashion favourites Kanye West & Pharell Williams. This to me is the perfect outfit to do all your running around in over the weekend, allowing you to feel comfortable and yet still look stylish at the same time. It’s Thanksgiving for us Canadians so I’m wishing you all a good one! Until next time guys xo!

Today’s look is all about keeping it clean & simple. I feel like you can never go wrong with a denim shirt and I love these joggers – the standard khaki is brought a little fashion forward with the addition of an elastic cuff. With some leg to show it was easy to choose a pair of white Chuck’s – bright & white they kept everything right. This is a great look for a relaxed setting – brunch, a movie date or even a house party.
