Here’s some oversized fall flow featuring my go-to basics during a trip to The Rec Room in Toronto earlier this month. Loose-fit camouflage cargo pants, an oversized black pocket t-shirt, a pair of white Adidas Ultra Boosts, and a gold chain to accessorize. Simple and effective.

Champ.

It’s always nice to get an opportunity to explore around the province for a change of scenery with some free time. Last week I did just that over at Niagara-on-the-Lake with a visit to Two Sisters Vineyard.

As for my outfit, I went with a basic summer look that you can give the green light to at almost any time of the season when heading out. Cream white curved hem tee, black washed denim shorts, with a pair of black slip on vans (as seen in previous S18 posts), and a watch. Just simple and on point.

SS18 II: “HYPE BEAST FLOW”

97AAF7E8-47F0-45EA-939C-67458E543A8D.JPG

As a continuation of my previous post (SS18 II), this is the “HYPE BEAST FLOW”. Hard to miss at just about any time of the day, the rose gold Supreme x The North Face metallic parka was one of the most sought after Supreme collaborations that have dropped in 2018 thus far.

The “base” of this entire outfit was showcased in the previous post (from the sneakers, joggers, socks, and t-shirt). It was a no-brainer to throw on a flashy parka with the outfit due to the basics allowing for versatility with colour choice and according to any possible weather changes during the spring/summer. Aside from the hype, the Supreme x TNF parka makes for a great transitional jacket that can be utilized as we make it further down the year as well during the fall/winter.

I’m going to step away from the fashion/hype talk for just a moment and share an interesting perspective on a common theme which exists on a daily basis. Over the years, I’ve noticed that many individuals feel a certain level of competition amongst each other which leads to nothing more than mental barriers being created. I say “mental barriers” due to the fact that many people are so focused on gaining that competitive edge on another person that it only caps their own happiness and success. There are many who will see others as a threat to themselves and flood their own minds with nothing but negativity.

The point here is, every individual looks to utilize their abilities in some shape or form whether its through work, academically, or interests they may have, and there will always be someone or something to measure up to. We live in quite a closed world of our own and when you view things on a more broad-scale, the amount of real-world competition is countless no matter which field you’re aiming to make your mark in. Often misunderstood, but the only way forward is to genuinely support and love one another and fuel off of each other’s successes no matter what people are hoping to accomplish. Once people are ready to release themselves from these self-created barriers, they will begin to see things with a clear eye view and realize the only competition in life is yourself.

Personally, I’m more than aware of the negativity that comes along with putting myself out as a “blogger”, but whether reactions are positive or negative, I view it all as love at the end of the day and consistently look for ways to improve in every aspect possible. I’m a product of inspiration that I openly take from anywhere or anyone and will only continue to examine how I measure up to who I was yesterday.

Vibrant, loud, crazy, or however you want to put it. As I’ve previously said, fashion is one of my favourite ways to express myself without actually verbally speaking. For someone like myself who constantly searches for ways to grow in different aspects of life whether it’d be mentally or physically, fashion serves as an outlet for me to express that growth in a variety of ways.

No matter how “loud” or “abstract” something may seem, it’s about finding happiness through your decisions whether it’s clothing you wear or just your overall perception of life without the fear of opinions. Through this post I not only showcase my latest fashion moves, but also a growing character through the fashion that is inspired by some of today’s greatest.

A comfortable mind will lack long-term growth. I apply this idea to every single day I live.

As many will claim they are not fans of the entire “dad sneaker” trend, it was only right that I took on the Yeezy approach to it with a pair of the “YEEZY 500”. Personally, I think the “bulky” sneakers are a great look for just about any given day and are an alternative to your daily casually worn shoes as the possibilities with these are endless.

Supreme x Lacoste 2018. The very trendy waist bag has made for a great “on the go” accessory. My bottoms are a pair of black vintage Champion joggers to compliment the “safety yellow” t-shirt which was purchased for no more than $10 at a local superstore. Great finds can be made anywhere regardless of the location or price tag as long as you let go of the ego which will allow for a more clear and creative perspective on things.
