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

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: business casual

I’m off to work later tonight & I thought I’d show you what I’m wearing!

It’s the Maeve dress I purchased a few days ago, paired with a bold statement necklace & my new favourite boots by Farylrobin (I’m seriously in love). It’s a comfortable but classy look that’s very easy to wear. I don’t like wearing clothing that makes me feel restricted and rigid… I prefer to try to soften up my office outfits.
