Overdue

I’ve been waaaaaaay too busy lately… my new job does not leave me much time to kick back and relax (or think up posts!). So while the bit of bad news is that my original hope of getting in every office outfit on here won’t be happening, the good news is that I’ll have longer posts and I’ll be able to focus on one or two fabulous looks every week. Quality over quantity, am I right?

I’m also debating branching out my blog to be a bit more of everything I love to do… clothes, makeup basics, food, baby, home, etc. What’s happened over time is that I have two blogs, and neither one gets quite enough posts for my liking. If I do go that route, you’ll be the first to know.

Now onto my latest outfit!!

Casual Magic

Hello lovelies!

It’s been crazy busy and topsy-turvey here. I took last week off from writing of any kind to allow myself to settle into my new job (yay) and to relax for my birthday (double yay)!

But now it’s back to the grind… but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring!

My new job allows for a much more casual wardrobe around the office, but on days when I have meetings with the important people I’ll need to be dressed to the nines.

Today was a casual day, and I decided to bring my love of Harry Potter to work.

A Classy Leave-Taking

Today was my last day with my current team; on Tuesday I will start a new job on a new team. I’m staying in the same organization, within the same overall group even, which means there will be times when I will see my old team again.

I wanted to have my “final impression” so to speak be classy but comfy, and I think I pulled it off. It’s one of the only outfits I’ve put together without using the StyleBook app in the past year, and I’m super proud of that.

Bright Pants

It was cool but sunny yesterday, so I decided to match the flowers that are starting to come up with bright red pants after finding a super cute outfit to copy on Pinterest.

Royalty and Unicorns

Hello lovelies.

I’ve been a bit MIA and I’m totally blaming that on two things: one, being in training (and therefore not in the office), and two, being sick.

Luckily it was business as usual today, and I took my inspiration for my outfit from one of the undisputed queens of classic style: Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge. Now I could spend hours gushing over her wardrobe, the causes she supposed, and pretty much everything about the British Royal Family ‘cus I’m a huge monarchist, but for now I’ll stick to copying those outfits that I can.

In other news, I thought I’d fully follow the popular crowd and grabbed a unicorn frappuccino from Starbucks today. I enjoyed it (after mixing the sour blue stuff into the pink), but it could have been better. Also, sour crystals on whipped cream are not a good idea. Opinions are divided on flavour, but you have to admit it’s just the prettiest thing in a cup to come out of a coffee shop. Probably ever.

So much pretty!!

Pop of Pink

With the long weekend just moments away, I decided to go for a pop of happy pink for my Thursday outfit. I also added one of my favourite pairs of earrings for some sparkle.

Here’s the outfit in my trusty app, this time in a different view.

Blue Skies

This weekend was absolutely gorgeous and the warm weather spilled over to today. It’s still a Monday, but so much better than any Monday I’ve had in a while.

I decided to honour the warm weather with a brightly coloured outfit, with a cobalt skirt to match the sunny skies. To be honest, when it popped up in my StyleBook Shuffle option, I was hesitant to try it, but I felt brave today and loved the look in the end.
