Describe this outfit and why you love it.

It’s fun and happy, and it speaks to my style aesthetic. I love the colours and structure of the blazer — the masculine cut with the floral design is a good juxtaposition. As for the outerwear jacket, I love the cut and flow of it and the grey neutral tone goes with everything!

 

Describe your everyday style.

My personal style is structured, comfortable with a little oddball thrown into the mix.

 

Favourite local restaurant?

There have been so many great ones opening lately, but Ten Foot Henry always feels like home. The food is consistent, delicious and balanced. Service is perfect. And they serve food late, which is great for me because I often work late.

 

What is your greatest extravagance?

Probably dining out too much; art for sure (although I see it as more of a need) and extravagance with time is probably checking out everyone’s social media.

 

Drink of choice?

Seventy-Four K red wine from Road 13 or Oban single malt. And Nikka Japanese whisky.
