Weekend Must Haves

Sorry for the lack of posts during the week, but I decided to give my top items to wear on the weekend.  I definitely think that everyone should have a great pair of leather leggings whether real or fake which can be work casually or on an evening out.  Also a great pair of flat boots are a must along with these new boyfriend chunky knits.  As for outerwear a relaxed army parka is fun and new.  In the bag department a great satchel is good because it is so versatile. Love this bag from Mulberry!  Have a great weekend!

Gossip Working Girl Con't

Outro, $375

I am about to go watch the new episode of Gossip Girl and was really inspired by outfits I saw of Serena.  As you can see she is my favorite and I love her edgy but still feminine style. I have also been looking for booties which I can wear both to work and on the weekend in grey since it can be paired with so many other colors, but have already gone over my shopping budget for the month and therefore will have to wait till next month:(  Hope you like the outfit and tell me about some fall items you've purchased or that are on your wishlist.

Going Green

Rebecca Taylor Belted wool-blend cape, $625
Gina Shoes Clair Brown/Chocolate, $720
Marc by Marc Jacobs Ukita leather bag, $495
UNGER Fashion - Stella McCartney Bracelet 'Velvet' Khaki, 499 EUR
Tom Ford Beauty Arabian Wood Eau de Parfum, 8.4 oz., $465

When looking for work clothing try to find quality pieces in great fabrics such as wool and cashmere that will last a couple of seasons. The cape is a big trend this season but have not yet found one for me:( I like to mix more classic pieces with trendier accessories and shoes for work.  This dress from J.Crew is great because of the flowy detail on the sleeves and the structured bottom.  Hope you enjoy and happy hump day!!

Gray Matters

Gray Matters

Jill Stuart, 15,750 JPY
Acne / Agra Tank Top, $199
Helmut Lang / Cracked Stovepipe Pant, $995
Michael Kors - Parker platform bottie with studs - grĂ¥ -, 185 EUR
MICHAEL Michael Kors Hamilton Tote, Indigo, $268

So back to work today and thought this would be a perfect outfit for a Monday morning after a vacation.  Light colors always work well if you have a tan.  Love the bag because it reminds me of the Birkin bag from Hermes except at a fraction of the price!  I added a pic of LC because I love her little grey dress and black pumps which can be a  great option for work too!  Have a great day!

Bon Voyage!

So although it is fall in my hometown of  Montreal, I am travelling to Brazil where their summer season is just beginning!  The weather is beautiful and the beaches are fabulous.  I would recommend packing bandeau bikinis to avoid nasty tan lines and great kaftans for cover-ups.  Also, a great flat sandal can be used for day or night which is great if you are trying to pack light (which is really hard for me!).  Sunglasses and a great beach bag are also necessary items to bring along.
