There is nothing more comfortable (and stylish) to me than a good sneaker. I love that sneakers are a huge fashion trend that’s sticking around. I can remember when wearing sneakers with a dress or skirt was a MEGA fashion no no, but now it’s the s@#% (as long as it’s paired well of course). Every brand I click on these days while online “window shopping” has a ‘walking’, ‘lifestyle’, or ‘casual’ section because they know they have to cater to the stylish street wearability that is the sneaker trend. On my days off I like to kick it (get it) in sneakers most of the time because my feet are usually exhausted (server life). I can’t wait to get my feet into some of the sneakers I’ve been eyeing above this season. I love that brands are bringing back their classic styles with a twist. The platform trend has to be my favourite, mostly because I wear heels due to that fact that I didn’t win the lottery in terms of height, so the heeled sneaker has been quite a blessing. I think first on my list are the platform Keds canvas platform and the Reebok Classics. I’m really into those two styles at the moment and can see myself getting a lot of wear out of them.
How do you feel about sneakers and the fashion statement they’re making?
I have been M.I.A. for too long! The holidays have come and gone and I think I just got a little sucked up in the aftermath. January is such a bummer month, for everyone, not to mention it’s been freezing in the city. Now that I am hoping the constant frigid cold is behind us I will be back to blogging more often.
Obsessed with this brand right now btw. Every guy should wear it, and every girl should steal it from their boyfriend.

Vertical stripes are usually no ones best friend. They tend to widen by tricking the eye. Even on my small frame I don’t exactly want to look wider. Surprisingly this dress did none of that! I paired it with a flannel tied around the waist, though I have to say I am tiring of the trend after seeing it on every girl; but I enjoy mixing prints, and plaid and stripes together are one of my favorites. Also, anything I can pair my rugged old converse with, well..you understand. This uber comfy, A-line cut Joe Fresh maxi is a go-to on hot days. The racerback, which tends to be an athletic cut, also makes it more casual when sometimes wearing maxi pieces can feel too over-done.
No fuss pieces are a must living in this muggy city in the Summer, and now that it’s officially Summer I can’t wait for the weather to stay hot (let’s hope), and also sunny! There are loads of things to do in Toronto in the Summer months including: outdoor concerts, (persona)l food tours of the places I want to check out, Summerlicious, local parks and beaches with friends, flea markets, exploring my favorite neighborhoods etc. I’ll be posting my adventures along the way on here so stay tuned!
