How would you describe your style?
My style has always been very basic, simple and classic. I don’t like to overcomplicate my outfits and I always stick to neutral colours. I am always on the hunt for sales and I never buy anything full price, which is a big money-saver! When it comes to my style, the saying “less is more” is quite accurate.
Who/where do you derive inspiration from when putting together an outfit? Instagram is definitely my inspirational tool nowadays. I can spends hours on Instagram looking at various outfits on different fashion accounts without even realizing I’ve spent a good chunk of my day scrolling through photos.
How does living in Halifax affect your fashion choices?
I just moved to Halifax this summer but it’s already influenced my style quite drastically. It’s a very trendy city so it’s nice to be able to see different fashion trends whether you're in line getting a coffee or going for a walk at Point Pleasant. I would also say the weather here is definitely the number one factor that affects my fashion choice. I tend to dress in layers as the weather is a bit unpredictable so wearing an oversized scarf or a comfy knitted cardigan is definitely key during winters in Halifax.
Name a current trend that you just can't get on board with?
Bold colours or differing patterns have always been considered a trend but that is something I could never get on board with. My colour scheme never seems to go further than browns or maybe even a forest green but I’ve always admired those who can pull off bold colours or patterns.
