Forever In My Own Lane

Hi BBs, I just wanted to jump on the blog to share this casual look I shot a few days ago. I LOVE how simple yet vibey this outfit is. My friends over at H&M sent me this beautiful Oversized Recycled Wool-Coat from their newly launched Circular Design Story collection and I love the way that it completes this look.

One of my tips that I always recommend to guys for the fall/winter season is to invest in a good overcoat because it instantly elevates your outfit, no matter what you’re wearing underneath.

This is definitely an outfit I’d wear to run errands in the city, meet up with a friend for lunch or something of that nature.

I hope that you like it too & I’ll be back soon!

Casual Day Out

Three posts in less than two-weeks, who am I? lol. I’m not even going to try and analyze it, let’s just go with the flow.

I shot this look last week and I’m really into it. It’s simple, yet put together. I’m really into high waisted + wide leg denim at the moment and these are probably my favourite pair (Zara). I decided to keep the colour scheme light and used this #EditionByJohnBoyega cardigan as my statement piece + pop of colour.

This is definitely a day outfit. Something that I’d wear to run errands, attend a press preview, and to a lunch date.

Edition by John Boyega for H&M

I told y’all I’d be back soon and here I am… back with another street style post! I shot this look yesterday and I’m in LOVE with it. The main pieces are from the recently dropped #EditionByJohnBoyega for H&M collection (coat, vest + pants).

I love this collection because I think it’s very diverse but at the same time there’s a cohesive element to it that ties each piece together. These are three of my favourite items that I could’ve styled each piece separately, but I loved the way they came together for this fit. This is my “Get The Bag” Autumn edition, lol.

Scroll down for the full look + more pics! đŸ™‚

Summer Celebrations

So, this summer one of my closest friends got married to her Prince Charming and I couldn’t be happier! As most of you know, I’ve spent the majority of 2021 on the west coast but I had to make a trip back home to attend + be apart of this wedding.

Stace and I go back 13+ years and she has one of the purest hearts that I’ve ever come across. She’s the life of the party and makes friends everywhere she goes – her bridal party consisted of 12 people, lol.

That being said, her and her partner Alex had a two-day celebration and it was THE wedding of the summer! The vibes were on point, the sun was showing out and we just had the best time!

I was trying to be as much in the moment as I could, so I only took a few pics. Scroll down to get a glimpse of the vibe over the two-day celebration!

LOVE UNITES Pride Campaign – Adidas Canada

Hi angels – I hope that the month of June has been really good to you! I’m back on the blog today to share a cool campaign that I had the pleasure of being apart of.

I got the chance to work with my Adidas Canada family on the launch of their 2021 Pride collection – Love Unites! I’ve worked with the brand in the past around Paris Men’s Fashion Week, Adidas Originals and Adidas Running launches, but this was a first for Pride.

Once I learned about the messaging of the campaign and seeing the collection, I knew that I wanted to be apart of it. The campaign is all about love – loving yourself, loving your peers for who they are, the freedom to love whoever you choose, and uniting over sports and creativity.

This is a message that I stand behind and in all honesty something that I needed to hear growing up. I really do hope that by creating these types of campaigns, and increasing representation in all forms of media that the next generation are not only able but encouraged to truly be themselves!

For the love of sport, and the love of love!

Valentine’s Day

Well, I’m back and a lot sooner than I expected, lol. There’s a lot of changes that are going on in my life right now and I can’t wait to share them all with you.

In the meantime, I worked on a cool campaign with Bulova watches for Valentine’s Day and I wanted to share the images with you. It’s a giveaway that’s taking place on Instagram here, and I wanted to be a part of it because 1) I really like the brand, 2) I love Valentine’s Day (single or in a relationship, lol), 3) you guys get a chance to win a dope watch!

I hope that you guys have a great weekend filled with love and light!

Good Days

Well guys, we made it to 2021! I’m going to hold off on my predictions for the year, as last year was…well you guys were there, lol.

Currently, in Toronto we’re in a lockdown so there’s not too much happening on my end but I’m hopeful that things will change for the better soon (prayer hands).

I woke up today in a good mood and decided to take some pics and showcase some of my favourite items at the moment – linked below!

I hope that you guys are all holding up and that this year brings you a little closer to your dreams and desires!

Photo Diary

Winter Diary

One thing about my apartment is that no matter what season it is, the lighting ALWAYS delivers. No but for real, the lighting in my place has been soooo on point and has definitely helped with my seasonal depression, lol.

Y’all know I love my travel photo diary entries and since I’m not traveling this year I decided to give you guys random photo dumps on certain months.

Here are a few pics that I took throughout the month of December 2020 – some from projects, some just because and everything in between (all shot on my iPhone :).

What’s It Giving?

Sigh… today was one of those ‘What Am I Doing With My Life’ days, and truthfully, just like Sway, I don’t have the answer, lol. On the plus side, the sun was shining and seeing that the decent weather days are numbered in Toronto, I decided to take advantage of it.

What’s this look giving? It’s giving me, pretty on the outside and super EMO on the inside lol! I use my site + social channels as a way to express how I feel so on days that I don’t feel like I have it all together and I decide to post, I’m going to be authentic.

That being said, just because the pandemic is getting the best of me, doesn’t mean I won’t still give you LEWKS (when I decide to post lol).

Super simple outfit but with a touch of edge. I recently got these leather boots from COS and I’m loving them. I think they pair so well with these cargo pants and the cropped knit sweater from H&M Studio.

Y’all know I love accessorizing and I feel like incorporating some of my chunky jewellery and the pop of colour from my toque really elevated this everyday look.

I’ll be back soon, and hopefully in a better mood :)>
