Rise and shine my loves! Good morning and happy Thursday. 

As for my agenda today, it’s more like what isn’t on my agenda. Reflecting on these past couple of weeks I could go on and on about how exciting/non-stop my days have been, but instead I’ll sum it up in a single word: hectic. But it’s the best kind of hectic. I feel like I’m finally finding a balance between studying and time for myself all while settling into my new life. Each day has brought on an entirely new experience – some greater than others, of course, but I’m learning to take each day with a smile and flowing with whatever life has to throw my way. It’s all part of the process.

I apologize for not updating this past week, I had a couple posts that I wanted to write, however, they got delayed so stay tuned for those articles coming your way in the near future. Also, such exciting news that I’ve been dying to share with you… I landed a position interning at a wonderful fashion company leading up to Toronto Fashion Week. [AAAHH!] When I got the call that I’d be part of TFW I lost my mind. Such a dream come true. Working with a company that’s so passionate and knowledgeable about not only fashion, but also what personal style represents has provided a collaborative experience where I feel like I truly belong. There is something so special about being in a place where you know that’s exactly where you’re meant to be. It’s also been amazing learning about the industry first hand and I seriously can not wait to be back stage at Toronto Fashion Week in less than two weeks. You know i’ll do my best to share as much as I possibly can from that day! So many exciting things coming up and I can’t wait to share all of it with you.

All I can say right now is I have no idea what tomorrow will bring but I do know this is the beginning of something – I can feel it.

– Color Stream –

I believe inspiration is everywhere. Seriously. No matter where you may be, there is beauty to be found within the smallest details. Personally, I find an abundance of inspiration within a the character of a city’s streets and surroundings. [Toronto has captured my heart so far, every street is oozing with it’s own unique qualities]. Part of shooting my looks is finding the perfect place to stop and snap a few photos. There is a method to my madness and I feel as though the backdrop has to compliment the ensemble, or else my vision hasn’t been satisfied. Okay, so maybe there is a little more madness to my method, but maybe that’s just me. When a background strikes me as “perfect” such as this one I feel like it brings my entire look to life, telling a story, yet without using any words.

For me, as a blogger, I enjoy the combination of everyday inspiration and fashion, because they go hand in hand and together they have the ability to transform the ordinary. This blog is like my own art board in a sense and I love capturing photos that go beyond an outfit, they need to have a little something. A certain je ne sais quoi if you will. The photos I post are an expression of art and style and I truly hope that is conveyed to my readers. :) <3

With this lovely mosaic of color variations and interesting figures, it was as though this dress was meant to be shot with this beautiful art, which was painted on the side of a gallery. Each color streams beautifully into one another. What a combination.
