Nature Walk Pt. 1

5556_sm

Fall is such an amazing time for outdoor walks. Though I don’t like the falling temperatures, I do really enjoy spending time outdoors and seeing nature change right before our eyes. The talented Toronto-based photographer Aleyah Solomon and I decided to do a special fall-themed photo shoot last week, exploring nature in downtown Toronto. Yes, there are some very beautiful quiet spots in the city where you can walk or bike in the “woods”. We called our exploratory shoot the “Nature Walk”. Here is the first look from our walk in the city.

I have a thing for flowers… I’ve always had. Maybe it’s a girl thing, maybe it’s the fact that I don’t live somewhere where flowers grow outside all year round. I like their delicateness, I like their colors, I like their smell and all of their different shapes and sizes. Each flower represents something different to me, a different time or event in my life. As a kid, I would receive flowers after dance shows, figure skating shows, birthdays, school graduations, etc. My mother would always adorn our house with fresh bouquets of flowers every week. It was just something that made our house not only smell nice but also feel a lot more alive. My favorite flowers are definitely peonies (hence the tattoo), but I really love them all! My dream is to live somewhere where I can have flowers around me all throughout the year. In the meantime, I try to decorate my apartment with flowers here and there, those than can survive with little sunlight or throughout the winter. Happy to have brought this new addition home!

Prismatic World Tour

I’ve been waiting for tonight since Valentine’s Day! Tonight is Katy Perry‘s World Prismatic Tour debut in Toronto! I was so stoked when I received tickets as a gift from @offner in Miami back in February. I’ve always loved Katy Perry’s magical and colorful universe. I can’t wait to see all the costumes and set tonight! Ready to get my dancing on!!

Happy Weekend everyone!!

Flower Blouse #DailyOutfit

Happy Friday everyone! Excited for a relaxed weekend at home before the Canadian Music Week madness begins! I’ve been hiding from the rain all week watching all the latest episodes of Kitchen Nightmares and also the amazing new season of Anthony Bourdain‘s Parts Unkown. If you’ve watched some of his shows before, you know that Anthony Bourdain’s shows are beautifully shot, feature some of the yummiest food and some of the dreamiest locations in the world. The latest season of Parts Unknown is no exception. As someone with a serious case of wanderlust, watching the show just makes me want to travel even more! The latest episode on Lyon, a place I’ve had the pleasure of traveling to (I even ate at the same place at Bourdain – Comptoir Abel!) is magical! Also watching it with Offner, a Lyon-native made it that much more special. I’ve grown really fond of anything Bourdain does and highly recommend watching any of his series (No Reservations, The Layover and Parts Unknown). The first two seasons of Parts Unknown are available on Netflix. This Sunday – it’s Mexico!! Can’t wait!

For today’s outfit, I’m dressing down a beautiful white flower silk blouse from Zara with black skinny jeans, beige ankle boots and a few dainty gold rings.

Stay tuned Sunday for a brand new 5 Questions With interview! Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

Headband Love #DailyOutfit

The last time I remember wearing a headband before this year must have been when I was in high school or maybe even younger. If you check Pinterest (here!) or you go on any fashion website or designer site (here!), you’ll see that headbands are everywhere right now. They are no longer just for Coachella flower girls or for working out, headbands are definitely more of an “every day” hair accessory now. When I received this rad leopard headband from Uranium, I couldn’t help my try to style it. Surprisingly, I didn’t look like a total goof (or at least that’s what I think!). What I like about headbands is that there are all sorts, some dressier than others and are a perfect way to add a little extra something to your outfit. Plus it’s perfect for a bad hair day! Are you a fan of headbands?

Easter White #DailyOutfit

Happy Easter weekend everyone!! Whether you’re with the family, traveling abroad or simply just hanging at home, I hope it’s a relaxing and beautiful weekend! I’m excited to have a laid back weekend at home, probably the last in a while so I’m going to enjoy it to the fullest!

Celebrating this weekend with some easter white. Can’t get enough of these white denim trousers from Zara. Best purchase I made a few seasons ago, because they still look brand new and can be worn all year round! Also can’t wait for my new custom Modern Vice boots to get here from NYC. Might be getting them next week, can’t wait to show you all!!

Purple Lips #DailyOutfit

My makeup artist totally got my mood today! I was feeling a little grungy in the morning when I got up so the purple lips and dark eyes were the perfect addition to my look! Do you guys like purple lipstick?

I’m finally able to take my bike back out, couldn’t be more stoked!! Yay for spring!!

More Color #DailyOutfit

Apologies for the lack of updates these past couple of days. Right after spending a few hectic days at World MasterCard Fashion Week I left for NYC at the crack of dawn on Friday. I’m beyond thrilled to have attended the School Of Style this past weekend at the Ace Hotel in Manhattan. The coolest Christmas present! I’ll be posting a new NYC travel blog shortly with more info about the school. Can’t wait to continue my training with them this spring/summer and be able to get my diploma!

Speaking of spring, like most of you, I’m extremely tired of wearing dark colors. I’m currently listening to a lot of “spring” records including this rad new record from a band called Language Arts. Tracks like these definitely add a bit of magic and color to my day. What are your current spring favorites? What colors are you stoked about for Spring?

WMCFW FW14 Day 4 #DailyOutfit

Day 4 already of WMCFW! I can start feeling the fatigue creeping up on me. A good way to know if I’m tired – if you see me wearing my glasses, then you know I’m not getting too many Zzz’s 😉

For today’s outfit, I went for a more sporty/hipster look. Leggings, my 10th Tribe beanie, leather jacket and oversized my recycled leather and fur mittens. I also sported the special collaboration tee from fashion blogger Song Of Style x Shop eLUXE called “Do Epic Chic”.
