By mid-summer, the fashion mags are displaying the Fall 2013 looks, but we are still trying to beat the heat while looking professional. The easiest way to stay coolis to be mindful of the fabrics we wear.
This striped blazer is made of a light breathable fabric, and with a nice tank underneath, don’t be afraid to sling it over the back of your chair during lunch on a patio!
This blazer is great with a black bottom or a fun colour.
Also looks great when paired with thicker stripes too.
Or my favourite watermelon dress!

What to wear to work, this fall:
I believe this post speaks for itself.
This time of year (although the weather has been surprisingly warm lately) your scarf is as much a part of your look as your blouse, skirt or pants.
So why not work it into your outfit to maximize your look throughout the day?
And as for the body chain, it was a custom made piece by up and coming Toronto fashion designer, Seema Patel of Armour by Seema
How are you keeping warm and stylish this fall?

Dressy Casual~The Irene Edition~Jail Bird
Like any good blogger worth their salt I like to give the people what they want. Lately, I have received a lot of requests to feature affordable items for the slightly less formal work environment.
Looking professional when working in a “Dressy Casual” environment can be a lot of fun…once you’ve figured it out.
However, this particular dress code can land any young professional woman in an uncomfortable meeting with HR over a “too short skirt” or gossip around the office behind your back over too much make up, inappropriate shoes or a “too deep neckline”.
Wednesdays will be dedicated to those of you who have more wiggle room in your choice of work attire, starting with~The Irene Edition.
(special shout out to my girls who helped me put this shoot together!)
