ICE CREAM SERIES- PART 1

Photo series- the idea of collecting a series of photographs surrounding a specific theme or emotion. Now I know the “Ice Cream Series” may seem juvenile but the idea of a refreshing and delectable cone in the summer is for the most part, a universal emotion. Therefore, myself and my creative friend Stephen Molella (view his work here) have decided to document every time we, (or I), have an ice cream this summer and put a creative-twist into each part of the series.

SCARF + STRIPES

IMG_4843

I have always been keen on scarves, but since my recent visit to Paris I have been frequenting the scarf look more than usual. I bought a bunch before my trip and love the way they add character and that extra something to my look. I would also like to point out these amazing high waisted wide leg pants. They have both the makings of my little fashion heart; stripes & a high waist. I tucked a black cami to match my shoes, and paired a blue and white scarf to match the pants. One of my favourite looks of the summer so far!

BROOCH-ED

Hi guys! I am super excited to show you what I treated myself to recently. It is one of my favourite pieces currently and is definitely a piece I will have with me forever. I have always loved a simple outfit with a classic touch, whether it be a shoe or a bag, this time I have opted for a brooch; a classic, timeless Chanel brooch. Growing up I always used to wear pins and brooches on my jackets (thanks to my mama), and that inspiration came back to me recently. I thought of how cool it would be to dress up a tailored jacket or blazer again with a elegant brooch, either alone or alongside another pin. I think one brooch suffices when you’re putting it on a crisp jacket, but why not add two or three pins to a denim jacket or even a casual tee. I think that really elevates a look and definitely isn’t something you see people do often. I even have a “V” brooch that I’ve had since I was a kid, and I am really excited to pair that with the Chanel C’s!

Little Black Dress

There is so much to be said about a great little black dress. It’s versatile, can be on heavy rotation, you can work layers into it, and it can be the mediator of a statement shoe or bag.  Or simply, the little black dress can be the focal point of interest. It is a dependable wardrobe staple that everyone should have. Pictured I am wearing my LBD as the simple focus, and I paired it with a suede bootie. It is an overall-put-together-look, and with a slicked ponytail, you can’t go wrong in showcasing a simple yet sophisticated look.

ME IN NYC

It has always been a dream of mine to go to New York City in the fall for my birthday, and for me this year that came true! I am so blessed to have such an amazing best friend who surprised me with the trip which couldn’t have come at a better time, considering I really needed a reason to get away for a little bit. I am excited to share with you guys some pictures from the trip, including what I wore while roaming around my favourite city.

It felt really good to leave everything behind, even just for a few days. It is important to clear your head, take time for yourself and kind of discover who you are, what you want and where you are headed. Life can get pretty crazy and rough, so if it is going to take a quick weekend away to help sort yourself out, do it. Everyone needs a break sometimes.

WMCFW SS16 DAY 4

DAY 4 of #WMCFW was a very eventful photo-taking-day for me. I spent time with some of my favourite street style photographers that I had the pleasure of meeting 3 seasons ago when I was a fashion week rookie. One of the best parts about fashion week is seeing other bloggers and photographers you’ve met in the past & reuniting on the two most fashionable weeks in the year, getting your photo snapped by your favs and even better, getting snapped for big Toronto magazines such as Flare, Fashion & Elle Canada.

My outfit on DAY 4 was an off the shoulder, bell sleeved top with lace detail, high waisted trousers and black lace ups. My initial plan was to pair these trousers with a sleek black pump but the massively painful blisters I had by the time Day 4 came around did not allow me to wear pumps, so I opted for something comfortable instead.
