Wednesday Wants

boho dress and boots outfit idea

For this week's work outfit I wanted to go back to basics - classic colors and silhouettes. This tweed shift dress from Nordstrom perfectly fits the bill. I love the added touch of a jewelled collar. A merino wool cardigan is a perfect touch to add to a shift dress. Comfortable but still office appropriate. And you can't get much more classic than kitten heels! 

For this week's weekend look I wanted something a bit boho. I found this baby doll dress and love the color/print. The baby doll cut is a unique touch (and perfect to hide a food baby if you're stuffing your face at brunch like I plan to do in this dress). The boho vibe of the dress pairs perfectly with tassel booties and a y-necklace. I also can't get enough of these open statetment rings. The turquoise is a cool contrast to the orange of the dress.

There is something so elegant about a turtleneck with a statement necklace. It's effortless work chic. I was channeling an Audrey Hepburn Funny Girl thing when I decided to pair the turtleneck with these pants. I love the look of a classic top with a statement pant. Audrey of course would have worn flats, but what can I say, nothing can tear me away from my pumps; NOTHING. #HeelsGirlForLife. 

I love the color of this necklace - the blush hued crystals really makes the necklace stand out from other styles that are currently available. Leave it to Olive & Piper to always have the latest and greatest looks. I love their jewelry. You can get not only this blush collar necklace but anything from their website for 20% with my coupon code - LegalLee. Happy shopping!! 

In other news, I fly out to Aruba tomorrow and cannot wait!! I am definitely ready for some sun, strawberry daiquiris, and a ton of reading on the beach. I won't be posting this Monday, but be sure to come back to the blog on Wednesday for a post and on Friday for an exciting guest poster. Trust me, you won't want to miss her outfit!

I'll be sharing some updates from my trip on instagram & twitter while I'm away, so be sure to follow along!

I am swooning, actually swooning, over this blush & black work dress haha. I love finding dresses that are professional but still have a feminine quality. The fact that there is a matching blush colored blazer makes it the perfect office look. Also, how great are the suede lace up heels? I am so glad that chunky heels are on trend again, because man oh man they are so much more comfortable!

For this week's weekend look I wanted something comfortable (..what else is new haha). I love the cross strap top and with the burgundy cardigan it is perfect for fall. I've been wanting new fall booties as I only have one pair. I love the studded details on these Sole Society ones. And; as always, I want every piece of jewelry Olive & Piper has haha. These rings are perfect statement rings, and such a great deal with the 20% off code! 

Today is my first full day back in my parents small town and it is weird, and great, and did I mention weird to be back. Fun fact: we still don't have high speed internet so I am currently heading to my best friend's hair salon on the main street, where there is actually internet that does not make me want to pull my hair out haha. Wish me luck!

I have the hardest time finding pencil skirts I like. Something about the shape just never works for my body type. So, when I found this exposed zipper skirt I fell head-over-heels in love. The zipper allows you to make the slit as high or as low as you like which, I found, helps me make it sit better on my body. Win! Ps. I got this skirt using Ebates. You NEED to be using this program if you aren't! You click through to your favorite stores websites via the Ebates site and then you get cash back on all your purchases. No catches, they just mail you a cheque with your cash back. I use it every time I shop online and love it!

I also really like this olive bow blouse. Lace up tops are everywhere this season, but this is the first time I have found one that is work appropriate. It's a great compliment to the pencil skirt and the black and crocodile print heels! A perfect work day look! 

In other news, I am heading out on vacation tomorrow afternoon for a week and a half. I'm off to Toronto to visit friends and then heading to Aruba with my mother for a week. I am very much looking forward to it, though I *may* have gone a bit overboard on my book shopping... (see my instagram story for more haha)

Olive & Leopard

Similar Blazer // Top c/o // Pants (on sale!!) // Similar Heels here, and boot version here // Similar Clutch

I've been wearing olive green a lot lately. It's an easy color to add to work wear to move away from black & white, without making too much of a statement. Perfect for a classic work look. Pops of leopard and gold add just enough drama to make the look stylish. 

In case you missed my first post with these pants (here), trust me these are *the* pants you need if you work in an office. The perfect work day pant. The best part is they are now on sale for under $70! Score! 

Having been under the weather lately I have been on a major Gilmore Girls bender. I started with the first season a couple weeks ago and am already mid-season three haha. I am so excited for the new season to be released in a couple of weeks. Are any of you guys huge Gilmore Girls fans too? I had such a blast going to the Luke's Diner pop up last week (you may have seen the pics/video in my instastories!)
