Navy & Neon


Dress: c/o Joe Fresh, Necklace: c/o T+J Designs, Bag: Coach, Shoes: c/o Vince Camuto, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelet: Stella & Dot, Sunnies: ASOS

I'm sure I've mentioned this at some point before, but in addition to the blog, I also work a full time day job with the provincial government. Going into summer I have felt like my work wardrobe is seriously lacking, and I rotate the same few things over and over again. I've been making a conscious effort to keep the office in mind when shopping lately, and this navy eyelet shift dress totally fits the bill. It's light weight, the perfect office appropriate without feeling frumpy length, and can easily be layered up for cooler days.

I'm also completely obsessed with my new neon necklace from T + J Designs! Obsessed! It's such an amazing statement piece for summer, and I seem to be crazy about neon yellow lately. (It all started with my neon skater skirt purchase from topshop!) This one is definitely going to be on heavy rotation!

I hope my fellow Canadians are enjoying their extra day off! Happy Victoria Day!

  11. This color combo is so good - your outfit literally jumped out at me while scrolling through my Bloglovin feed. Navy is quickly becoming a must-have neutral for my personal wardrobe. Your look here just proved that.

  18. For a year I worked in a pharmacy where I had to wear navy scrubs everyday. It's a testament to the awesomeness of navy that I still like to wear the color in regular clothes! But still, this dress is a much better use of navy than scrubs are. Really lovely - and the necklace too!

  24. That necklace completely adds that next level to the otherwise simple (but cute) dress.

    I assumed that you had another job, but didn't know what it was. I always wonder how people find the time to blog so regularly when they work full time. I'm newish to blogging, but can't find the time to post daily, as much as I'd love to.

    I hope you had a great long weekend too!
