Classically Feminine

There’s just something about wearing pink that just makes me feel pretty!  Pink lace, to me, just screams “classically feminine”.


I picked up this dress from Forever21+ with frost still on the ground and have been dying to make it work for a summertime office look.  How cute are these sleeves!??!   Love them so!

(Click here to see how I wore it this past winter/spring)


Wanting to keep all my accessories Black and White to match my thrifted flats and new paten-leather Kate Spade purse…..I removed the brown belt that came with this dress and replaced it with this cute skinny black bow-tie belt instead.


How I Got The Look:

Blush pink lace dress from Forever21+; shoes and earrings vintage/thrifted; Stripped paten-leather purse Kate Spade;  Skinny Bowtie belt SWAK from Gussied Up

Rainy Day Office OOTD

Rainy Hump Day in Toronto … which led me to put together this multi-patterned fresh office look of navy and white + a combination of polka dots, stripes and paisley.  Yup – three patterns, one outfit.  AND White Pants!!!  Crazytown, I know!  🙂


At first glance, the outfit looks pretty monochromatic and simple.  Navy button-up sleeveless blouse with fabulous white bib, and white pants with wedge platform sandals.

But, if you look real close, these crisp white pants have a delightful paisley pattern on them. I introduced a third pattern by unveiling my new paten-leather Kate Spade purse today (isn’t she a beauty — another spectacular find on my recent cross-border shopping trip – click here  for a blogpost on my haul from that extravaganza folks!)


Like most offices, it’s either freezing cold or ridiculously hot – so keeping a blazer handy always works well, and gives you that polished look in case you’re pulled into a meeting last-minute.  Today, I went with my navy polka dot ¾ sleeved blazer which is perfect for summer time wear, as the lining is cotton. #winning  😉


Overall, this was a pretty functional and fashionable office outfit – minus the pain of breaking in new shoes.  Picked up these fantastic beige-tan-black platforms in that same shopping trip (click here for blogpost)….but as you can see, they’ve massacred my left-foot’s baby toe.  #fashionbeforefunction.20140611-144138-52898558.jpg

My hair started out looking relatively lovely….buuuut throughout the workday it got rained-on repeatedly while running in between buildings from meeting to meeting.   The hair situation continued to diminish, finally it ending up getting tied back and outta-da-way.  Sigh…


How do you keep yourself looking versatile and cute on rainy days friends?  Tell me all about it in the Comments section below!
