What to Wear to the Office

Club Monaco Striped Jacket (similar from 424 Fifth)  //  424 Fifth Polka Dot Mesh Top  //  Zara Pink Pants  (similar from B/R)  // Nine West White Martina Pumps (similar)  //  Chanel Caviar Jumbo Handbag (beautiful vintage version at Farfetch)  //  Chanel Sunglasses (similar from Madewell)  //  Stella & Dot Odette Ring

 

Stripes, stripes and more stripes.  Stripes are such a classic and easy print to pair with almost every pattern and color.  I used to be scared of horizontal stripes because “they” say that horizontal stripes make you look wider. Well, whoever “they” are, “they” are wrong.  I’ve since learned that it’s actually about the fit and cut of the clothing rather than the direction of the stripes.  I know that vertical stripes are supposed to elongate your body, however I actually find horizontal stripes to be much more flattering most of the time.

 

To add a little bit of fun to this post, I’ve partnered with two extra fabulous Canadian ladies to showcase how we each wear stripes for three different occasions.  The super stylish Kira from Northern Style Exposure is highlighting casual stripes, the always gorgeous Eleni from Convey the Moment is wearing stripes for date night, and I’m wearing stripes for the office.  Definitely check out these two wonderful women over on their blogs.

This striped Club Monaco jacket is one of my favorite items in my wardrobe.  Sadly it’s old, but 424 Fifth currently has a very similar version on sale available at Hudson’s Bay or Lord & Taylor.  It seems to look good with everything, and adds that perfect finishing touch to an outfit.  I’ve also worn it with sneakers for a casual look, with a chartreuse dress for work, and a white dress for a date night.

Summer is almost here, but our Toronto weather still requires dressing in light layers.  This ASOS floral coat is one of my favorite pieces for Spring.  With so many pretty colors in the floral print, it’s surprisingly versatile and can be worn with a ton of different color combinations.  H&M has a gorgeous floral kimono that I’ve had my eye on, which would be perfect for layering in the Spring.

 

These Zara pink pants are the perfect shade of soft pink.  Sadly, they are from last Fall but Banana Republic currently has a similar jacquard pair of skinny trousers that are a beautiful pastel pink.

 

Happy Monday Everyone!  I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!

3 Bloggers 3 Ways - Spring Florals 1

I am so excited to be partnering with two fabulous ladies today to showcase 3 ways to wear Spring Florals.   Tara (from Mix & Match Fashion) and Marion (from Marionberry Style) are two of the sweetest ladies you’ll meet and both have an incredible sense of style.  Funny enough, we all chose florals in cooler shades of purples and blues, and all three of us went with white handbags.  I’m all about the white pumps and handbags right now, and I’m on the hunt for a slightly larger white bag than the one I’m carrying.  I haven’t found the perfect bag yet, but once I do, you’ll definitely see it here.  Be sure to check out Tara and Marion’s blogs for more photos of their Spring Floral looks.
