I love summers in Toronto, the city is buzzing with tourists and locals on patios and coffee shops. Since we get so many months of cold winters one has to make the most of the heat! One of my favorite places to explore during the summer months is China Town and Kensington market. I went on a photo journey with my friend Jazan we took in the sights and sounds. Mixing some heart to heart conversations with coffee, goodies, and some hammock naps. My summer style consists of a mix of monochrome basics with comfy heels and shoes. Check out my full summer style diary below and all the places we stopped by ~
Weekday vibes between work and play call for some mix and match between monochrome basics ...
I recently collaborated with the multi-talented artist visionneilwho will also be showcasing some of the shots from this series in his upcoming gallery preview at the Commons Photography Studio: I knew that working will visionneil meant that I had to take the opportunity to do an ootd look for you guys!! So we got together to do a look book with my favourite look of the season!
White halter top with high waisted back pants and a my favourite sun hat!
This totally defines my aesthetic on mixed sunny & cloudy days when the weather can suddenly take a turn on you and become windy or cold! My new found obsession with basics is well, every growing! I can't help but collect as many basics as I can. They just take my wardrobe to a whole another level because the mix and match possibilities are endless!
Check out my lookbook with visionneil below!
Pants - Zara
Sun Hat - Forever 21
Halter - Forever 21

I think many people shy away from the colour purely due to the fact that it gets dirty quite quickly but what we don't take into consideration is the abiliy of white to really brighten up your frame. For this very reason I think I'm beginning to fall in love with the colour white as it seems to really brighten up and bring attention to any outfit.
LatelyI’ve been experimenting a lot with the colour white and what I’ve come to notice is that not many people choose to take the risk which means that if you personally can jump the feat chances are that you may be the only one in the room. The best part is that you can rock it as a basic or easily pair it with any other colour.
One thing you will soon start to learn about me is that I’m a TopShop freak, I love to wear it practically anywhere and everywhere. So when I realized that I would be heading to Toronto Men’s Fashion Week this year I had to make sure that my outfit was on key. I had my eyes on these striped pants for quite some time but I was just unsure what exactly to pair it with, lo and behold! this trendy white crop top caught my eye and it was the perfect piece to complete the outfit.
