It’s Black, It’s White
I am really feeling the black and white trend for summer 2013. There is something infinitely classic about this colour palette.
This button down linen top is sleek, structured and sexy!
It works very well as part of a more formal suite
I’m a huge fan of this top
Linen top–$35 Femme’s 50% off Canada Day Sale
Blazer and skirt–Zara
For a touch of girly-ness in your mid-summer wardrobe try out this mint green flower patterned cotton top with black sash.
Or brighten it up with a light coloured bottom and matching belt (belt $1.50 Old Navy!!!)
This look works very well for the days you need a “day-to-night” look, for the after party or office event.
Top–$45 Femme’s Canada Day Sale.
Another long weekend is quickly approaching, time to check in with your fave stores to see what will be going on sale, so that you can snag it when it does!
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!
Blazer–Femme’s Canada Day Sale–$98.00
Back to Basics
This summer grab your basic white tank, camisole or sleeveless blouse and pair it with a simple knee length skirt and your fave new colorful blazer for an easy and fresh summer look!

Special thanks to Irene for giving us a peak into her fabulous wardrobe for the past 9 weeks!
I may not be able to rock the hot mama number that Michelle Obama and Charlize Theron are wearing to my office, but I do love my snake skin shirt…often paired with my snake skin skinny belt from Club Monaco.
Is animal print work appropriate…ever…I think so?!?
