Summer is FINALLY here. It feels like life has been bestowed back into the world again. With great weather calls for more photoshoots and that means more blog posts. Yay!

Today’s outfit is more on the business casual side, as I find that is the style I lean more towards nowadays. (Does this mean I’m finally becoming an adult?) The era for high waisted shorts and crop tops is coming to a fateful end, as fun as it was. It’s important not to sacrifice comfort for trend. I mean the more comfortable you are in what you wear, the more confident you feel overall.

This hot weather gives you a great opportunity to experiment with pastel and brighter colours. After realizing that 90% of my wardrobe is black, no shame I had to go out and bring some brighter colours into my life. Learning how to work with a multitude of colours can give your closet more variety when it comes to mix&matching, colour blocking, and self expression in general.

Peachy browns

 

August is finally here, but where did the summer go?? I still clearly remember walking out of school reminiscing on my first year experience, and in less than three weeks I’ll be going back. A lot of changes have been happening, including dyeing my hair, and it turning orange-was supposed to be red( I cried many tears) But it washed out to this blood orange colour that I actually don’t mind. However, with this colour, I have to be wary of the kind of bright colours I wear, because no one wants to look like a crayon. For today’s outfit, I went with a peachy coloured shirt and paired it with brown shorts, which complemented it very well. I added a few extra pieces like the cardigan and hat in basic colours as not to take away from the colour scheme.

Style Series: Part 3

Hello lovelies! If you’re not familiar with my Style series, it’s when different people, each with their individual style are featured on this blog every month. It gives a really unique perspective on how each person views and showcases their style. For this month’s style series we have one a good friend of mine whom I met this year and whose style I’ve always been lowkey jealous of (I know she’ll probably read this but whatever). Her style can be described as loose, light and minimalistic. Don’t let the smile fool you, the sun was literally melting our faces when we took these.

Where do you get your inspiration from? No one specific, but I like to feel fluid in the places I hang around the most like Kensington market. There’s this communal dress code around there that I unknowingly fall into which I’m totally cool with because it compliments my daily life and it’s comfortable and cheap

Favourite Clothing Store? Black market or H&M. I generally like the rustic feel so I love second hand clothes.

Any Fashion pet peeves? Overly tight clothing!! It’s hard to rock an outfit that’s got a tight top and a tight bottom, in my opinion it’s nice to contrast tops or bottoms with something free and loose. But if you can rock leather leggings and a tight tank top then that’s awesome too!

Any advice for the readers? Take the time to wear things that tell a story, that reflect what you would wear during your hobbies. For example when I’m painting I always wear loose jeans. When I’m wearing them outside, I feel like I’m myself/at home and it’s mentally comforting if that makes sense.

OOTD: Black History Month

February is finally here! Yall know what that meanss (Noo not valentines day), BLACK HISTORY MONTH. It’s quite surprising that 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the celebration of this month, and as you can tell, I am pretty excited about all the festivities and events that are going to take place in honour of the black Canadians; past and present.

Today’s outfit of the day was inspired by the “winter” weather we’ve been having. I can’t remember the last time I saw snow?? But anyway, just because it’s super cold outside does not mean you can’t dress up and look bomb everyday. Just layer up in cute scarfs and accessories, throw on a cute winter jacket(It doesn’t have to be warm) and you’re set!

Jacket : Mexx

Style Series

Happy 2016 guys! Hope everyone’s new year is starting off well 🙂 This year one of my resolutions is to consistently update this blog as much as possible. This means i will try to have content up every other week! Throughout past year, there were times where I completely forgot that I even had a blog (It’s really bad I know) but a lot of changes are happening this year.

Anyway, this month’s participant in the Style Series is a girl who lives a few doors from me and I’ve been secretly admiring her style ever since we became friends. Her style is very unique and sophisticated, unlike your average 18 year old who would just go for jeans and a basic shirt.

 Name: Tabitha Oni
Program and Year of Study: Social Sciences(First Year)

Where do you get your style inspiration from?: I get most of my style inspiration from the vlogger, Patricia Bright. She has a diverse sense of style as she can pull off a serious edgy look and also pull off a laid back look.
Favourite Clothing Store: Forever21
Any fashion pet peeves?:I really dislike bright colours on me so I usually stick to neutral colours.
Any advice for the readers?: I find that clothes that fit perfectly show off your figure no matter what size you are! High wasted jeans or pants are must-haves in every wardrobe as they show off your figure and they can be paired with crop tops or long tees.F

First month of university 

IMG_0202

I still remember the day I moved into university because it was filled with all kinds of emotions. Excitement, fear, nervousness and high expectations for the days ahead. Either way, I’m glad to say that so far, my experience has been a blast! :D. I absolutely love it here because for one, I’m IN TORONTO and second, I’ve met some pretty awesome people. With all this plus trying to balance school work, I haven’t had any time to focus on photography or my blog, which is going to change(hopefully). Anyway, the other day a few friends and I decided to take a break and snap some photos around campus, and I thought I’d share some of them with you guys. There will definitely be more content on the blog soon(I promise!).





Until next time!
