Hi everyone!  & Happy long weekend to my US readers!

As I mentioned last week, tonight I am flying to Ottawa so that I can visit the National Gallery tomorrow, then tomorrow night I will fly to Toronto for work.  We have our big spring auction on Wednesday, and then I'll fly home on Thursday.

The weather out east is looking little mixed, which makes it annoying to pack for - sun, rain etc.  I wanted to bring/wear on the plane one of my new pairs of espadrilles - both of which I've worn on my walk to work and are 👍- but I don't think they would do well in the rain?

I was hoping my Gap & Old Navy orders would have arrived by now, especially because there are a few dresses in there that would have been (potentially) great to bring to Toronto!  One of the orders is actually waiting to be picked up at a UPS store because we weren't home when they tried to deliver it, so I'm going to do that after this!  The other order somehow was missing my apartment number so they are going to try and re-deliver at some point ... I'm guessing next week which is slightly frustrating!

Anyways, let's talk about what I wore this week.  Outfit #1 I have worn twice already - once in April and once in May on a weekend I worked but didn't document.  Obviously I am loving this combo!

Outfit #2 is my relatively new J.Crew top which I think is super cute but I have a few problems with crisp cotton shirts like this.  The first is wrinkles.  The second is comfort.  I find the range of movement with this type of shirt is less than a softer cotton jersey or poly-blend top.  The third which might sound weird is that it's kind of cold!  I am always cold anyways, but I have to wear a cami under this type of shirt or I will freeze!!

Outfit #3 are two older items from Forever 21 and Old Navy.  This dress has spaghetti straps and is really just a super simple sun dress that you can make work-appropriate by pairing it with a blazer!  Another option would be a cardigan (see Outfit #1) which veers slightly more casual.  Since I'd already worn a dress + cardigan this week I wanted to switch it up with a blazer for this outfit.

Outfit #4 is another old item from Old Navy!  I had totally forgotten about this top TBH but wanted to wear my black skinny jeans to work since it was a pants day (see this post if you don't know what I'm talking about), and Friday, and this top was a perfect 'wear on it's own' item.  It's boxy and the short sleeves go to just above my elbows, plus the material is kind of stiff so it's difficult to wear something over top of it (like a cardigan, or even this denim jacket if I wore it properly).  I remember when I first started blogging and a lot of bloggers would shoot outfits like this with the jacket just draped over their shoulders, and there was backlash!  Like readers were mad because they thought you would never really wear a jacket like that.  But I'm telling you it's really a thing!  I actually love wearing a jacket/blazer/cardigan like this at work because it does at some warmth but is also easy to shed at any time!

Anyways, I hope you all have a great weekend and thank you so much for visiting!

  1. That yellow dress is super cute on you! I am kicking myself that I missed out on it. My daughter has a top in that print and now I wish I would have gotten the dress!
