Work Wear | Printed Dress


Another day, another wear-to-work dress! I realize I have been sharing a lot of dresses lately on LLB; which is odd as someone who has a full blown addiction to these pants haha! But, summer weather definitely calls for dresses over pants to beat the heat while still looking work day appropriate. This printed sheath dress (c/o Boden) is a new favorite of mine for 9 to 5 style.

I love the unique neckline on this sheath dress, and the navy and pink print adds some fun to the otherwise classic silhouette. In general, I really like Boden as a source for work wear that is bright and fun. They are all about the bold prints and patterns. One thing to note if you are shopping from Boden is to double check whether you are on their US or UK website! If you are in Canada you actually place your orders via the UK site (no idea why) so make sure you take into account the size differences (and change the currency to CAD!)

My heels are old, but I found two nearly identical pairs that I linked up below. I love the scallop detailing - it makes a classic suede pump more fun. Plus, how perfect is the pale pink shade for summer?! Big fan. 

I hope you all have a great weekend ahead of you! I am so excited to spend some time at the beach tomorrow. This girl needs a tan and some chill magazine reading time, asap.

Shopping | Canada Day Style

With less than two weeks until Canada Day, today I wanted to share some of my favorite Canada themed items that would be perfect to wear/use this Canada Day.
 I'm so proud to be a Canadian and love any excuse to show a little Canada pride. My personal favorite of all of these items has to be the "150 years on the Eh team" mug. I am coffee mug obsessed (you may have seen this instagram photo) and this definitely seems like a must-add to my collection.

The shirts are definitely a close second though; who doesn't love an excuse to wear a Canada themed t-shirt!? Both of these shirts are also well made and affordable, so that's a huge bonus. Before I forget;  just a reminder that you can click on any of the items in the photo to be taken directly to the link! 

What are your plans for Canada Day? I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing yet, but likely it will involve a backyard bbq at a friends house and then heading down to the beach to watch some fireworks. If you are hosting or attending any Canada Day party, the photo booth Canada props would be such an awesome addition to the party.

Happy almost Canada day! 150 years on the eh team, and oh-so-proud of it. :P

Work Wear | Casual Stripes


On instagram last week, I mentioned my love for comfortable work appropriate dresses; especially in the summer. I also mentioned that I find it so difficult to find dresses that are laid back (ie. not a structured sheath dress) but that are still work appropriate! I found one which I shared on instagram, and today I wanted to share this Old Navy one. 

This comfortable striped dress is everything you need for a casual work day. The high neckline is great for work, and helps keep the look shorter hemline work appropriate. I really love this length because it is still office appropriate, but it's short enough to help beat the summer heat! This dress is under $40 (heck ya!) making it a great piece to just have in your closet this summer. 

I paired the dress with my new laptop bag (I love the color blocking!), a plain black cardigan, and a pair of black suede heels. My heels are out of stock unfortunately; but I did link up a similar looking pair if you are on the hunt for this type of shoe! 

Is your wear-to-work wardrobe feeling ready for summer? Are there items you want to add this year? Styles you have questions about wearing to work? Let me know in the comments below!
