MissWorkinGirl Weekend Look: 70's vibe

(Numph top, Seven jeans, Michael Kors clogs, AE braclets, Coccinelle bag)
Just wanted to give you some snapshots of my casual jeans look.  I wore this out with my mom on Sunday while we went shopping.  It is one of our favorite activities to do together.  My love of fashion has stemmed from her and my sister who both have a great sense of style!

Have a wonderful Monday!

Stripes and Suits are perfect for work!

suits and stripes

The Olsens have brought us a great new look which is perfect for work: Suits with Stripes.  So simple yet so chic.  I love how they have paired the look with flat sandals. I have also added my version of the look and love to mix brights with navy and tan accessories.

Have a wonderful weekend! (with some sunshine hopefully...)

Long weekends are amazing!  I just feel like I get so much done with an extra day. I spent alot of time with family and friends and had dinner at a great place called KGP. Today I actually have some studying planned along with a nice relaxing massage to prepare for work tomorrow.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

MWG tips : How to get work appropriate nails

Step 1: Get the proper tools (Nail file, cuticle cutter and base/top coat)
Step 2: Select a work appropriate color (my fave is Big Apple Red from OPI)
Step 3: File nails in a squarish oval shape
Step 4: Apply the base coat
Step 5: Apply the actual color polish
Step 6: Finish off with the top coat to have a longer lasting manicure
Step 7: Make sure to dry nails as you don't want any smudges!
Voila: the finished product!!
Also a helpful tip is to use a Qtip with nail polish remover to get rid of any unwanted nail polish. Hope you enjoy and please tell me what are some of your great beauty tips!

Also here is the list of nailpolishes from Step 2:

Revlon Lilac Pastille
Revlon Grey Suede
Sephora OPI Metro Chic
Essie California Coral
OPI Big Apple Red (used in photos)
OPI Got the Blues for Red

A great boutique: Lola & Emily

This weather(raining constantly) has left me feeling gloomy and less creative.  Here are some colorful pics to brighten up the day.  They are from my one of my favorite boutiques here in Montreal called Lola & Emily .  It has very pretty clothing and great little accessories for the home (Voluspa candles) and you should definitely check it out if you are in the area:)

Have a Happy Monday!!

Olivia Palermo's Working Girl Looks

Olivia's style is unbeatable, as I have already mentioned several times.  Please let me know if you are sick of it but I love how she pairs simple clothing with great accessories (she always has amazing jewelery).  And BTW the Birkin seems to be her go to bag!  Love her shoes in all these pics!

Which celeb style is your fave?

What's in my bag and other fun stuff!

(Mimi&Coco top, Essie nailpolish, Stila convertible color for J.Crew)
(Orange DIY charm bracelet, AE friendship bracelet, BR ring and necklace)
(Longchamps bilberry bag, Deux lux wallet, Furla keychain, Tom Ford Sunglasses and other stuff)

Just wanted to show you guys what's in my bag these days and some things I recently got.  The tee from Mimi & Coco is a fave for summer and in a great mint color! Also loving the Stila convertible color which can be used on lips and cheeks (got at J.Crew in NYC) and gives a really fresh faced look. Also into lots of bracelets these days and jewelery! I will be going to Russia in June and so I just trying to read up on their history and have the book handy in my new bag!

Dressing in full bloom

(Zara jacket and dress, Killah shoes, LV pochette, BR bangles)

This weekend was all about family!  Had an event on Saturday for my nephew and then Mother's Day on Sunday!  I got my mom a bouquet of flowers and a card letting her know how special she is! Speaking of flowers, this dress is great for spring and I love the pattern.  I think I may wear it to work too by adding a navy blazer.

Just curious, what did you guys get your mom?

Miss Chung's Working Girl Looks

Love how Alexa can be both classy and cool at the same time.  Her looks are great for work as she always mixes something classic with a trendy or statement item (love her LV bag and bow tie shoes in the last pic ). Love her style and I will definitely try to mimic a look to work! Have a great Thursday!

(breakfast at Clinton's Bakery)
We very spontaneously decided to go to NYC this weekend.  It was such great weather and the city had such a great vibe to it.  I really love strolling around SOHO, eating great brunches and shopping!! It just never gets old for me.  We ate lunch at Cafe Gitane which is great for people watching, had dinner at Buddakan and breakfast at Clinton's bakery.  As for the shopping, I purchased a Longchamps bag (for future travel) and a couple of items at J.Crew.  Overall really good weekend!

Would love to hear your resto/ shopping suggestions for next time!
