Fashion Jobs – Block Party

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

For me, being comfortable in the summer is just as important as being stylish. While we may be able to walk for miles on end in heels during the cooler seasons, this turns into much more of a challenge in the summer heat. I was so happy to see some of my favourite brands coming out with block heel sandals for summer. This is the ideal option when you want to be kind to your feet, but also need to look put together, as flats don’t always have quite the same effect. I think it’s important to have a cute, simple pair of block heel sandals to pair with jeans and a blouse, shirt dresses or rompers. Depending on the heel height, these can be appropriate for anything from lunch with friends to a summer wedding.  There is so much available at a wide price range, so investing in a less expensive pair of bright, fun sandals (like the TopShop ones pictured) is also highly recommended! I own these and love to pair them with a simple black dress for summer nights out.

Coordinates and matching sets can be an amazing option for the office, and one that is so unique and polished. Depending on what industry you work in, there are so many choices in coordinates from more conservative suits to fun and colourful sets. Add these to your office wardrobe and the pieces together and separately can be truly timeless. If you work in a formal office setting like I do, I love to pair a great pair of fitted trousers with a matching silk tee for a look that is sophisticated yet effortless (navy on navy is a favourite of mine). Women in the fashion or industry or other more casual work settings have more leeway with this trend as traditional office dress code may not apply. Try pairing shorts and a blazer in a fun print, or striped trousers with a tee and a matching vest. There are so many great online shops selling office-appropriate coordinates recently at a super reasonable price. These are definitely worth checking out to add some awesome items to your professional wardrobe!

Fashion Jobs – White Out

This summer, all-white ensembles are taking over. With the increasing popularity of matching sets, overalls and jumpers, the options in mixing summer whites are virtually endless. One of my favourite ways to rock all white in the warmer months is an awesome pair of lightweight overalls paired with a cropped tank. This look is so easy- going and cool, and can be completed with a leather backpack and a great pair of slides. For an evening look, I love to pair my white silk shorts with a sheer white blouse and a bright heel for a pop of color. This look is completely effortless yet so sleek. While I love both of these, my absolute favorite white on white combination for summer is a matching two-piece set. Pair a midi skirt with a matching top for a look that is so put together for any summer occasion. All of these looks are so versatile, proving that all- white is becoming the epitome of easy summer dressing!

1. Aritzia Wilfred Lorient Skirt and Tournus Bra Top, $115.00 and $70.00

2. Reformartion Bahama Short, $138.00 USD

3. ASOS Noisy May Dungarees, $137.52

4. Tibi Agathe Bow Jumpsuit, $695.00 USD

5. 31PhillipLim Lace Tank, $350.00 USD

6. ClubMonaco Mika Fringe Tank, $189.50

Fashion Jobs – Office Appropriate Boho

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion JobsBohoChic

The Boho chic look has made a come back for summer. Spinning off of the 70’s trend we seen on the runway, billowy dresses and gladiator sandals have never been more chic.  But how do you translate this fun trend into work appropriate attire? I have found that pairing one statement boho piece with office clothing allows you to maintain that professional look while showing off your good style. Here are a few of my top picks that can translate into the work place seamlessly.

Music festivals are as much about the music as they are about seeing and being seen, and one of the most exciting parts of festivals is the effortless, carefree looks associated with them. It can be challenging to translate your bohemian festival style to fit the office dress code, but these pieces seamlessly blend business casual and Bonnaroo.

Fashion Jobs – Office to Beach

It’s Friday at the office and your just about ready to end the day early and head out on a beach trip with some friends. You don’t want to lug around your work-wear, shoes and all, to the beach for the entire weekend. So, as an alternative, you can put together a Summer outfit which will be able to easily be used during your weekend get away at the beach. Wear a light scarf to the office that day to add colour to your casual Friday look, and later use that same scarf on the weekend as a beach coverup! Wear some comfortable culottes or a form of loose pants to be able to throw on for a cold evening near the fire. Jean culottes or boyfriend jeans are a wise choise as they can later be easily washed from the fire smell. Wear a loose floral blouse that can easily be worn as a coverup or paired with cut-offs for a walk down the strip. Lastly, pair your outfit with some closed-toe flats that easily slip on and off for running into the water.
