A city that I call my own, Toronto, is my metropolis. Although it’s not New York or LA, two of my most admired places, the T. Dot is still an eclectic place filled with tons of culture and beauty.
Something that really pushes me to get inspired is throwing on some of my favourite pieces of the season, and of course taking pictures, with the urban setting surrounding me!

Fashion is a huge part of my life, and really helps me connect to my inner self as well as the place I call home. In Toronto [and pretty much every where else], there is a ton of inspiration, which gives people the desire to set new trends and create their own styles. Many of the styles that I would have never thought I’d love a few years ago have now become some of my favourite pieces to throw on!
One of the top trends this summer is the jersey. No matter if it’s just a mesh jersey-style top, or a sports jersey, it’s one of my obsessions! The jersey I’m wearing in this ootd is very forward, with bold letters stating “FOUR 20”, and UNIF (the brand name) on the sleeves.

Super cliché and very intriguing! I love how in your face the graphic is, but how it plays on the classic layout of a jersey, so only those who really understand what it means will actually get it! 🙂
The backdrop of this shoot is also really enticing too, as it’s an overview of the city of Toronto. Although it was a hazy day, it was nice to get outside and enjoy the summer heat. And to add a little brightness into the darker day, I had to pair my orange CDC cuff and Phillip Lim bag. They totally brought out the pop in this outfit!
To add some spunk, I sported my ripped vintage shorts, funky tortoise shades, and I had to throw on my rad Jeremy Scott sneakers. It was the perfect day to wear these insane kicks, since they are pretty loud & are hard to pair with most of my wardrobe. I felt some summer vibes in this outfit from the bright colours and unique textures I mixed together as well.
