Wednesday Wants






I am SO excited to tell you that it is (finally) easier to shop my posts. In addition to the links I always provide, the photos themselves are now click-able. Click on any item you want to see and you'll be taken directly to it *happy dance*. It took me an embarrassingly long time to get this done, so hopefully I get quicker at it each week! 

In case you missed it last week (see here) I've changed my Wednesday Wants a bit - instead of a mix of items I want, I will be showing items that work together for both a work day outfit and a weekend outfit.

As you can see, right now I am really loving camel and burgundy tones - they have made their way into both my work and weekend outfit ideas for this week. The camel pencil skirt is such a wardrobe staple - I highly recommend it as it can be worn in any season. Pairing it with the bugundy handbag and gorgeous navy and burgundy silk bracelet make the outfit perfect for a fall day at the office. 

For this week's weekend look these jeans on sale are AMAZING. Paired with a turtleneck and plaid blanket scarf you have a chic but cozy weekend outfit. 

I am still coming down from the high of seeing the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge this past weekend (more on that here if you missed it). I was very inspired by Kate's bold outfit (red pumps!) and I will be incorporating bold colors and details into my outfits this fall as well.

What to Wear to See a Princess

If you follow me on instagram, you'll have seen that yesterday the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Vancouver as part of their royal trip to B.C. Friends & I went down to the sea wall to see them arrive by float plane. Of course, being a fashion blogger, I had to take the opportunity to wear the most 'royal appropriate' outfit I could think of.

The weather is freezing right now, so I decided to wear m pale pink winter dress coat on top of my cream dress. People tend to shy away from pastels in the fall and winter, but I think that pale pink is an all season color. It works great for fall paired with winter whites and greys. 

While we only got to see Princess Kate & Will for a few minutes, it was truly incredible. Kate is even more gorgeous than I possibly could have imagined, and Will is even funnier (he made a comment about taking selfies!).  

Kate wore a stunning Alexander McQueen red & white dress. The dress is part of their 2017 resort collection - though the actual dress is quite different than what Kate wore as she had a number of alterations done - including adding "dress shirt" style sleeves and lengthening the hem. She accessorized it with bright red pumps and a red clutch.

Below are some photos from the event. The quality is not the greatest, but I just love that I have them! For more photos & videos head on over to my instagram stories - quickly before they expire!

Jenna Lyons is probably my biggest fashion idol. She is the president & creative director for J Crew, and a major risk-taker in the world of fashion. When I bought this JCrew flamingo blazer, I knew I wanted to be really bold with my style choices and 'make Jenna proud'. 

I decided to do some print mixing and wear the pink blazer with both leopard print and stripes for a bold work outfit. If you are shy about print mixing, don't be! If you missed my tips on print mixing, check them out here. Leopard & stripes are a classic print mix combo, and adding in any bright color with them (like hot pink) works perfectly. 

I also plan on styling this pink blazer in a more subdued work outfit later in the fall, so be sure to stay tuned on the blog for that!

Wednesday Wants

I am so excited to show you guys my "new and improved" Wednesday Wants! I've decided that instead of providing a bunch of random items I am wanting, each week I am going to compile items I like into two outfits - a weekend one and a work day one. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this new look! 

As for this week's wants - can you tell I have a thing for floral right now?! I feel like florals get so easily mistaken as a spring pattern, when in reality I love florals for fall. Hopefully these outfits inspire you to incorporate florals into your fall outfits, work day & weekend. 

I hope you all have a great Wednesday ahead of you! I've had a bit of a slow start to my day today, I slept in far longer than I should have! I had a girls night out last night and my friends and I went to see Bridget Jones' Baby. It is by no means as good as the original, but it did have some pretty hilarious moments.

I cannot get enough of these Kate Spade floral heels. I have worn them to court quite a few times in the past few weeks and people compliment them every single time! If you work in an environment where you are more restricted as to what you can wear (ie. the land of black suits lol) shoes are a great way to add some personal style to your outfit. 

I also love adding a bold handbag to my work outfits whenever I can. This pink Michael Kors is actually my mother's, but luckily she lets me borrow it! My mom has incredible style (you can see posts from her here & here if you missed them!)

In other news, I am trying out a spin cycle class after work tonight with a friend. It is a new instructor at a new studio here in Vancouver, so I am a bit nervous but looking forward to a good workout. I've only ever done spin class once before, so hopefully it isn't too intense! I'm trying to expand my workouts lately and try new things- other than just dancing & running. What workouts do you all like? Any recommendations for things I should try? Let me know!
