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.

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!!

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.

Doesn’t it look super cute in the app?

Black and Purple

Another Monday.

I haven’t worn a skirt in a while, so I opted for a black and purple outfit, featuring my favourite bracelet.

Career Chat Outfit

Happy Monday!! We had a lovely warm spring day here in Southern Ontario.

I had a career chat this morning with a manager in my area that turned into an impromptu interview. I knew I’d be in a more formal situation, but since it wasn’t supposed to be an interview I went with an outfit that matches the more casual vibe of my office.

Almost-Friday

It’s Thursday! Which means tomorrow is Friday and that’s just awesome. I tend to consider my weekdays with relation to Friday: Not-Even-Close-To-Friday (Monday), Closer-To-Friday (Tuesday), Halfway-To-Friday (Wednesday), Almost-Friday (Thursday), and of course Friday.

Fuchsia Friday

It’s Friday (and thank goodness)!

I love the weekend, as usually I’m able to spend it playing and spending time with my little one, which is my favourite hobby right now. She’s almost two (where has the time gone!!!) and she amazes us every single day as we watch her grow.

Carrying over the black-on-black from yesterday, I opted for a pop of colour for today’s outfit, and what better colour to pair with black than a bright, lovely pink!

Check out my outfit and it’s Pinspiration below. I skipped the scarf as I had nothing similar.

I’m still trying to figure out the best way to take the pictures for the blog, so bear with me and the few different formats I’m working on!
