Style Adventure: Terre Bleu

If you read my last post, you know I was completely disappointed about a sunflower field. But guess what there is also a really well organized Lavender field in the Greater Toronto Area. So I styled an outfit to explore this farm!

July Favourites

Another Month has come and gone.

I hadn’t done any shopping in such a long time with so many recent large purchases in our household.

As such I’ve had to get very creative not to repeat any outfits.

I’m not going to lie- its getting more and more difficult.

A couple times this month I’ve left the house in an outfit I just wasn’t quite happy with.

I guess it was a hit and miss month.

Cause I absolutely adore these July fits.

Can I just say this whole outfit minus the belt and tights are from goodwill. #mindblown

I picked this skirt up in June. I absolutely adore it. It gives my work fits a baby doll feel.

This outfit has my favourite colour combination purple and blue.

Paired with the low bun and curls- I feel like it has a spanish feel.

Especially with the curvy silhouette showcased.

I felt sexy in this outfit!

Professional, cute, and girly- the perfect work fit!

The long curls with the lace and flirty skirt- all scream very girly.

The cherry on top is the peep toe heel.

Which is your favourite?

Shorts to the Office

As a lady you get to have a little more flexibility in the office compared to men.

As we wear skirts and dresses to the office; it isn’t abnormal to show a little leg at the office. Thus shorts are no different.

But be sure to wear the correct style!

The correct style is:

1. Material

Just as a jean pants or skirt is unacceptable, so are jean shorts.

Go for a Trouser or Bermuda short material

Example:Β H&M Bermuda Short

2. Length

The short should fall between 3/4 to knee length

knee length short 34 knee short

Although a mid-thigh short can look incredibly chic.

Not for the office, my friends. Not for the office.

Save that outfit for an out of office chic look.

Here are some examples of how I styled shorts for the office to get your creative-styling-juices flowing!

Although I like to offset the skin showing on my legs with a long sleeve.

On one of Toronto’s hottest days I also styled shorts without sleeves.

If you still feel uneasy wearing shorts to work.

It is a great idea for those casual fridays- mix it up!

Who says you have to sweat those summer days?

Be the epitome of cool success in a chic short outfit.
