Jules in Flats August Outfits  (Business Casual Summer Workwear on a Budget)

Jules in Flats August Outfits  (Business Casual Summer Workwear on a Budget)


Hi everyone!  Here's a look at what I wore to work last week.

The side by side photos are out of order, sorry!  I'm not sure what happened there but I was too lazy to fix it!

I'm really trying to wear all of my summer dresses at least once before I start repeating outfits, so I pulled out this pleated Aritzia dress on Monday when it was quite hot.  I bought this dress at the Aritzia Warehouse Sale a couple of years ago.  Sometimes with Aritzia they bring back the same style every season in new colours/patterns, but I guess this one wasn't popular enough because I haven't seen it again!  Anyways, the teal is a nice bright colour, it's lined and made of a crepey/poly fabric which is cool and work-appropriate (I find dresses made of jersey/cotton are typically too casual for work, plus they don't hold up as well over time).

Also, my pink pleated mini skirt is back!  I love this skirt and surprisingly don't wear it more often.  I paired it with my gingham top from Old Navy that I haven't worn to work since May!

I wore the heart-print top in July, also with Pixie pants, so there's nothing really new about that outfit, and then I finished off the work week with these Darontal pants from Aritzia (bought on sale), that are a bit more dressy than my usual Pixies, paired with an old favourite striped top from H&M that I wish I had steamed before taking these pictures! #bloggerfail

In other news, we bought a new place!!  We made an offer last Sunday and it was finalized by Monday at 5!  Naturally, we went out to celebrate and had a great evening sipping drinks by the water on Granville Island and finishing up at Edible Canada.  It was my mum's birthday on Monday as well so we had a nice FaceTime in the evening to celebrate both events!

It's a long weekend here in Canada and surprisingly we don't have any plans!  We are going to be away every weekend in August except this one, so I think we're both okay with that!  Our apartment was de-staged yesterday so it's looking pretty empty and we get possession of our new place mid-September so are going to have to start packing soon!

Next weekend is our annual family camping trip, and this year we are going to Galiano Island!  We've never been so are excited to check it out!  We're leaving Thursday, and with Monday being a holiday I'll only be at work 2 days next week which means no blog post next weekend.

Anyways, thank you all so much for reading and I hope you have a great week!

Jules in Flats July Outfits (Business Casual Summer Workwear on a Budget)


Hi everyone!  How are you?!

As usual, here's a look at what I wore to work last week.

It has been hot here, which used to be unusual for Vancouver, but every summer for the past 5 years we've had an increasing number of days in the high 20's'/early 30's (Celsius).  This spell is going to last for 2 weeks I think (we're already on the second week)!  Nobody here has air conditioning because historically, you didn't need it.  We have a portable air conditioner that friends gave us when we moved into our current apartment 6 years ago, and I'm so glad they did!  When we first moved in I think we only had about 1 straight week of hot weather and it was so great for that but I kind of questioned keeping it around as it takes up space in the storage locker during the winter and is kind of an eyesore, but it is so worth it!

In other very exciting news, we sold our place!!  We got the offer on Monday, went back and forth a few times on the price that day, showed it one last time on Wednesday night and closed on Thursday!  We are so happy and also excited that we can get back to living normally! LOL It's so strange trying to live in a place that's supposed to look like nobody lives there!


Of course now the next phase is finding somewhere else to live!  We don't have anything lined up yet, but we do have our eye on one place that we'll probably make an offer on this weekend or Monday.  Wish us luck!!


The wedding last weekend was amazing!  The weather and location were perfect, everyone looked gorgeous, the food was great, there was an open bar, we saw lots of people we haven't seen for awhile (some since high school!), and best of all the bride and groom were happy and surrounded by their friends and loved ones :) :) . I posted a couple of pics that include what I wore to my Instagram if you're interested!


This weekend we are going to head down to Kits Point to watch the fireworks, and on Sunday we are going to Brewery and the Beast!  This is an annual event that is also held in Calgary and Victoria.  We went for the first time 2 years ago and missed out on tickets last year, so we are happy to be going back tomorrow!  Hopefully the meat coma I will inevitably eat myself into will be gone by the time I have to go to work on Monday!


Anyways, I hope you have a great weekend and thank you for reading!
