Leave it to me to take the PJs-during-the-day trend way too literal. I mean, I literally sleep in this sweatshirt and it's probably socially unacceptable for me to wear it in a public setting, but when you pair it with a pair of gold accordion pleated culottes, nobody notices! ;)
This was the perfect cozy fit for my day's activities which included but were not limited to eating pupusas and empanadas at multiple different restaurants in Kensington Market with my cousin and talking to a weird guy about crystals. While strolling through Kensington, I spotted these warm yellow lensed aviators and thought they would be perfect with the look so I picked them up for a cool 5 bones.
I'd say my Sunday was a success. More photos after the jump!

Philipp Plein's Fall 2017 presentation at NYFW featured fur in unexpected places, puffer coats in unexpected materials, Fetty Wap, Desiigner, Pete Wentz, and that one hot guy whose mugshot went viral on social media a couple years ago. The collection takes a very literal approach to the luxury streetwear trend, and your girl is not complaining. ;)
Keep reading for a breakdown of my fave looks and moments!
Stush Extensions is a unique Toronto based beauty boutique and spa experience with a sweet little home on King St. West. They do everything from custom hair extensions, to lash extensions to mani/pedis and they have their own house line of luxury Siberian mink strip lashes. I was stoked when they reached out to me because I love adding local products to my beauty arsenal.
I'm rocking one of their super pretty 3D lash styles Posh in this look. They're quite full but still wispy enough to blend seamlessly with my natural lashes. I joke on Instagram all the time that my glam lashes feel like tiny baseball caps on my eyes but in contrast, these beauties are so soft, light and flexible that I actually forget I'm wearing them!
You can check Stush Extensions out here for more info and if you're in the 6ix you should totally pay them a visit at 580 King St. West!

Happy Black History Month everyone! I was super lucky to find this Tuskegee Airmen tee at a local vintage shop and took it as an opportunity to give myself a little history lesson!
The Tuskegee Airmen were a group of African-American pilots and support personnel formed in 1941 at HBCU Tuskegee University in Tuskegee, Alabama. They were the first group of black pilots to serve in the US Military despite Jim Crow Laws that had barred African-American pilots from flying before. The Tuskegee Airmen became one of the most respected groups during World War II and played a major role in ending US Military segregation altogether. Check out tuskegeeairmen.org to learn more!
