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!

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.

Wear to Work

Wear to Work

Here’s one of my go-to work outfits. I prefer a dress or a skirt to dress pants. I like to feel comfortable during my 8 hours at the office!

Style Tip: toss a few quick curls & add a necklace to your outfit to dress it up. This outfit without the necklace & curls would be much less dressy.

OOTD: 50’s swing style

I’ve been trying to get Rachel to buy one of these skirts forever! They are amazingly fabulous on her curvy figure. She should wear skirts like these every single day haha.

Tip: You have to understand your body type in order to wear clothes to highlight your body in the best ways possible. For example, I have a very straight-down build with not a lot of waist or hip, so this skirt would sit wide at my waist and flare out even wider from there. It’s an adorable skirt, but it will only work for curvy or petite women.

Dress your body right ladies! Everyone can look amazing : ) you just have to find the right clothes, fits, and styles for you!
