Yes, Please


Simple, feminine floral patterns have been my inspritaion lately.  Wearing them makes me feel instantly more like a lady, and floral just seems to suit the gentle breezes and warm weather that we have been experiencing lately.  I am definitely a girly girl, so I go all out with floral pieces.  However, if you are a little shy of the idea a wallet or a band on a straw fedora would be a great way to incorporate a little bit of summery floral into your look without feeling completely out of your comfort zone.

Thanks for always looking out for your little girl,

I love you, forever and for always

Happy Father's day to all the fathers and father-figures out there

I am loving skirts lately, mostly because there is rarely an occasion during the cold Saskatchewan winters to wear a skirt and now that the weather is finally our friend I have found myself embracing my love for this feminine piece of clothing even more.

All of the skirts above have very feminine colours, prints, and cuts.  I also seem to be leaning toward my favourite hue - pink!  I think my favourites are the top row though - they're a bit longer than many of the skirts we see around this time, and I'm definitely a fan of lengthening the hemlines a bit!

A Bit of a Change

A whole week since my last post!  And it feels like months ago to me.  I spent the last week downtown with my boss for a hearing and I absolutely loved it!  The days were certainly long though, I would leave my house before 8 and not get home sometimes until 10 at night... but it was worth it!  I learned so much and I have definitely found some new passions within me that I was never aware of before. 

But the absolute best part of it all??  The choices I had with what I wore!  Yes, it had to be business professional, but I was not limited by the restraints of the security requirements of my place of work.  Usually I am not allowed to wear heels, dresses, anything that is somewhat sheer (even with a tank underneath - which is how I always wear sheer anyway), or anything too form-fitting...  I don't want to get into detail about where I work, but these guidelines are for very good reasons.  So being downtown in a professional setting with no such restrictions made me feel so happy and free - I wore heels, I wore skirts, I wore dresses, I even broke out this top tucked in to a pencil skirt along with some heels, and I was never once told that it would be better to not wear my outfit to work.  It was quite the contrary actually, I was complimented on my clothing and many women admired my shoes (of which I have a modest collection, but I have to admit, they're awesome).

Now it's back to the same old, but I don't mind.  I love my job and I cannot wait until I am done my degree and hopefully (fingers crossed!) get a permanent position here - lack of style options and all!

How about you, what do you wear to work?  Do you enjoy dressing up, or do you think I enjoyed it so much just because it was a novelty to me?  Let me know!
