A Classy Work Dress

I’m loving everything Maeve this spring!! They just cannot do wrong it seems.

A Classy Work Dress

As soon as I saw this hanging in-store I knew I needed it. My similar Maeve dress is one of my favourite go-to’s and this is just a tad bit nicer, given it has a little more detail.

It might not pick up in the photos, but the centre panelling is a dark navy blue colour that is just beautiful. I love wearing this dress by itself, but it also looks phenomenal with a waist belt.

My boyfriend bought the lovely necklace and earrings for me while he was in Europe in December. This is possibly my favourite ring… I picked it up in-store on sale back in December and have been loving it ever since!!!  The stone reminds me of the Arkenstone from the Hobbit : D !!  The creamy white colours of the jewelry go absolutely perfectly with this dress!

The last part of this outfit is my FAVOURITE new thing!!!  An adorable watch that I’m just 110% in love with.  Since it’s black, it goes with most anything but those adorable polka dots just get me all sorts of compliments!!  Plus it’s a great price for such a lovely little watch : )

Have a great weekend everyone!! : ) It’s supposed to be beautiful weather so go get your tan on!

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!

The Perfect Spring Accessory!!

The plants are all budding & all around town veryyy pale legs are finally making an appearance!! Mine have been blinding the town since the beginning of April… but some of us are just bolder than others. ; )

The Perfect Spring Accessory!!

I was so thrilled when we got this vest in at my local Anthropologie. It’s the ultimate cutest accessory for 2014 spring/summer!!! I was sold on getting it the second I saw the adorable lace on the back.

IMG_3474

Not only am I in love with this vest… but I also adore this dress! It’s great for casual days walking around town, as well as the office. The more wearable the piece, the more it is worth the cost. Lately I’ve been picking up a ton of business pieces that would look far too stiff outside of work , as well as shorts and tanks that I could never wear to the office… so having a few things that work for both is fantastic! : )

I took these photos right before I went to the supermarket, so I paired the outfit with my favourite basic sandals and no other accessories. I can’t think of a time I ever wore a statement necklace to Safeway…

Hope everyone’s having a great Spring thus far! See you all again soon : )

A Summer Haul !

Emi and I hit up the local Anthropologie & found potentially thee best summer items. Obviously Emi shares my love for great clothes and splurged to fill her closet for her summer trips, she was kind enough to share some pictures with me to share with all of you!

Summer Haul !

The stunning white tank pictured above is a delicate doily pattern that flows so nicely, belted or not. It’ll work great with some light-washed shorts & her cowboy boots while we’re vacationing in Vegas in July!! The belt it’s paired with here is so feminine and dainty, it made the top seem softer and more flowy, in contrast to the darker belt she also picked up below.

IMG_3212

This darker, more structured belt made the top look more put together & would work great in a number of different outfits. The detailing and colouring in the belt is gorgeous! Definitely a great find!

IMG_3210

Next, Emi found this brand new GORGEOUSLY fitted dress. It’s very structured & definitely an amazing dress for a handful of occasions. It’s easily dressed down or up with accessories, making it a great dress to have around for casual dates or a more formal event. I’m definitely going to be trying this on in-store myself next time I’m in… it’s too fabulous to pass up!

IMG_3216

Emi’s got a fantastic summer full of trips planned, including Phoenix in just 2 short weeks. She needed something comfortable to wear while walking around shopping and while travelling, as well as something more dressy to wear for more formal dinners (or also shopping, who are we kidding… we always like to look fabulous). She tried on a few maxi’s and found that this adorable striped one would be perfect for anything casual, given the cottony-comfort.

She also picked out this stunning blue and orange printed v-neck maxi that fit her like a glove, which also had pockets *SOLD*! The colours of the printed maxi will also look amazing when paired with her Phoenix-tanned skin in a few weeks.

Finally, Emi needed some basic pieces for work this summer. She picked out this popular silk-front tee that’s simple, but also cut in a very flattering way that shows off your style without showing off too much skin in the office.

Reviews: Keeping in mind Emi is a size 0, everything pictured is xs or size 0.  All the items mentioned fit true to size (if anything fit big, she couldn’t buy it). Both belts were a size small and they fit her with space. The two maxi’s she bought normally fit quite short, but on her they fit at a perfect maxi length. On a 5’6 woman, they would sit a few inches off the floor. All-in-all Emi found some gorgeous & great quality clothes & I can’t wait to see vacation photos!!

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!

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!
