Style Peek: A Whole New Day

Today is a new day and I'm feeling a world of better! Thanks for your kind and encouraging words and for my amazing J - who loves me exactly as I am but whose support allows me to do what I need to do to feel better. No joke - this guys eats my low fat cheese and my air popped popcorn and say 'yum - can I have seconds?'. What a doll.

So with a big client meeting today and the leftovers from yesterdays blues needing to be washed off, I gussied up a little. As gussied as you can get in office - luckily as a creative writer in a laid-back environment I have the freedom to wear almost anything I want. I don't know that I could ever go back to my 'dress pants' wardrobe (shutter!). 

I took a picture of this top without the belt and I can honestly say - wow, that's not flattering at all! Ah, the lessons we learn... I love these wide leg jeans and of course, this bright coral linen top and my chocolate brown my cardi. The reason for this 'fall-ish' outfit - pouring rain and a chill here in Winnipeg! Please come back summer...

Chocolate cardigan - Gap
Coral top - Winners
Braided belt - Old Navy
Wide leg jeans - Dish
Brown flats - Aldo
Wood Earrings - Small shop in Calgary

How is your week going friends? What does getting 'gussied up' mean in your world?

  7. Love, love, love it. You look a-mazing!
    It makes me so sad to see so many women, myself included, being so hard on themselves on a daily basis.
    Self love is a thing we all need to get better at!

    Happy Day to you!

  8. I LOVE this one Lenore - so cute.... You've inspired me to rush right out and buy a belt!! LOL... well its on my shopping list anyways :)

    Try not to be so hard on yourself, you're looking great... and all the experts say that if it comes off slowly it won't go back (as opposed to quickly - as soon as you stop doing what you're doing, on it goes!)

    Keep up the great work :)

  9. Thanks girls, you're right - sometimes we women are just too darn hard on ourselves. Thanks for spreading the positive love!!

    Kristin - I am getting belt OBSESSED now that I see in pictures how much better it makes me look. Good luck finding your perfect belt!
