Yes. I bought a bike. Fed up with the TTC, I had to take matters into my own hands. I was hesitant at first but after a quick city session, I was a pro in no time. In my opinion, biking is the best method of transportation. It’s green, it’s fast (seriously it takes less time than the subway/streetcar), it’s never crowded, and it forces me to exercise. Honestly, if I can bike in the city with my coordination, anyone can.
The first thing I learned about joining the bike life is to wear the proper equipment (this includes your outfit).
#1. I promise you no one looks cool wearing it (hence the lack of photographic evidence above), but you need to splurge on a helmet, this could save your life one day.
#2. High waisted pants. I know Calvin Klein’s are super trendy but no one actually wants to see them, so invest in high waisted pants and avoid the public embarrassment. Also these embroidered Fidelity Denim Woodstock Gwen Crops will be the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe.
#3. Reasonable shoes. No wedges, no heels. Opt for flats or runners to help you get from A to B. Try these stylish & Other Stories loafers or similar Adrianne flats from Aldo.
Stay safe & happy biking.
The snow has subsided (for now) in Toronto. It’s time to toss the winter coats and knit toques, because spring is finally here.
Spring can be an awkward time for Canadians. The weather fluctuates so much that you’re scrounging for sweaters one day and the next your sunbathing in the snow. Jean jackets are the ultimate outer layer because they are heavy enough to protect from the wind, but light enough to keep you comfortable in the warmer weather.
Designed in Vancouver and made in LA, Fidelity Denim is always my go-to because it’s durable and only gets better with age. Every pair of jeans is touched by 26 pairs of hands and approved by founder, Jason Trotzuk, himself to ensure authenticity and consistency.
For this shoot I’m sporting the brand new Ryder Jacket in Crystal Blue. I’m in love the light colour and the embroidery above the left pocket. Shop the Fidelity Denim SS17 collection online at fidelitydenim.com.
