Everyday Attire

My job has me out of office about 50% of the time, which is fantastic! I’m always out checking out newly install landscapes, so sometimes wearing my business attire is not the best of ideas. I end up in some pretty muddy and dusty situations that I’d really rather not put my ‘dry-clean only’s into.

A few times a week, I pass on the dress and heels for an outfit like this. It’s still acceptable in the office, as it’s not frumpy casual. I can always count on Pilcro jeans for a classy and clean look, plus this Maeve blouse is one of my favourites. Once I leave the office, I’d tie the front of the blouse (still classy, these are high waited jeans), toss my hair in a ponytail, and throw on my sunglasses. Then nothing is blowing around while I’m trying to focus on work.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous and stylish spring!! Any suggestions for classy yet comfortable clothes for my site visits at work would be awesome!

Carefree Chinos

Carefree Chinos

So far, these are my favourite pair of pants to wear this spring (not that spring is quite here yet in Canada). Sanctuary blends slouchy and classy together so well that while I’m feeling cosy, I’m looking à la mode.

Pairing these great pants with a simple blouse & lightweight scarf kept me cool at work all day long.

The heels, believe it or not, are more comfortable than sandals. I’ve never had such a pleasant-to-wear heel!! Ladies: if you’re in the market for a fabulous shootie this spring/summer, check these out at Anthropologie’s online store!

1 Blouse, 3 Ways

Making one piece work in many scenarios helps justify the cost and increase the size of your wardrobe without spending money. I believe that it is worth spending extra to purchase quality clothing that will look better for longer than many of the inexpensive pieces from H&M or XXI. Finding a top like this that works both casually and at the office is a fantastic little discovery!!

1 Blouse, 3 Ways

Look 1

The first look I did with this blouse was a casual spring day outfit. It’s very comfortable and easy to wear. This outfit is perfect for any spring day!

Look 2

The second look is a great outfit for a chilly spring night. It’s also very casual, comfortable & wearable. Accessorizing with bright colour keeps the outfit fun & summery!

Look 3

Look 3

The third look I created with this top is an outfit for work. Paired with a blazer, dress pants, and a fun necklace; this outfit stands out more than the typical, muted, workplace outfit.

OOTD: tribal maxi skirt

Rachel came to visit me at work today looking stunning (as usual). I had to feature her fabulous outfit in my OOTD.

The skirt is funky, comfortable, casual, and has a sexy little side slit! Rachel paired it with her cross-back tee which matched the pattern on the skirt perfectly.

We have decided that this outfit reminds us of our nerdy days playing WoW. It’s very similar to a shaman’s outfit ! Haha this made us love the whole look even more !

Polka ‘Dottie’

Polka Dots

This beautiful top looks great if you’re curvy!  It hits all the right places, plus it’s silky soft.

Rachel paired it with her dark wash Pilcro’s and a gorgeous pair of freebird boots!  It’s a really pretty vintage-y look.  The top is an off-white and looks less harsh than true white/black pieces.

Anyone a Game of Thrones fan?? Season 4 is fast approaching & I’m getting super excited !! In my anticipation, I spotted these beautiful shoes on anthropologie.com

Do these remind you of Daenerys Targaryen or what??  I can just imagine her wearing a gorgeous dress & rocking these stunning heels. Very dragon-mother-esque !
