HOLR had the chance to shoot street style and chat with Toronto based fashion influencer Jodi Lopez; We discussed style, balancing a busy schedule, and fashion inspiration.
HOLR: Describe your style in 3 words.
Jodi: Black, every day, essentials
HOLR: What does a typical day look like for you?
Jodi: I spend my mornings doing admin stuff like responding to emails and social media community management. This is the time I review contracts and plan for any upcoming collaboration I’m working on. I spend my afternoons shooting content for my husband Jose or he shoots stuff for me. In the evenings I like to go for walks, cook dinner and try to relax. I typically attend 1 evening event per week.
HOLR: How do you balance work, socials and your busy schedule?
Jodi: I’ve realized that my time is precious and I only have so much of it so I’m very careful when I put my energy. I try to say no to stuff that’s not important and I try to take breaks or days off when I can. My personal and work lines are very blurred so I really try to have work time and off time.
HOLR: What are 3 staple pieces everyone should have in their wardrobe?
- A black, grey or navy blazer you feel amazing in
2. A pair of black or dark blue jeans you can wear with anything
3. A pair of black or brown flat boots that go with everything. I really like a Chelsea style.
HOLR: Favourite place you’ve traveled to?
Jodi: Paris — I never stop dreaming of Paris!
HOLR: Fall and winter is upon us – what’s your favourite fall/winter fashion item at the moment?
Jodi: I love wool coats, especially when they’re a bit oversized.
HOLR: What’s your go-to beauty item you can’t live without?
Jodi: Concealer. It makes a world of a difference even worn alone.
HOLR: Where do you get your fashion inspiration from?
Jodi: I spend a ton of time on Pinterest. Every season I create a board with inspiration.
