There's something about the marriage of fashion and function that has a special place in my heart.
I thrifted all of these pieces and thought they went together beautifully.
If I decided to run away from home, this would be the bag to do it with. I can practically fit my kitchen sink in there.
Also realizing that I should perhaps smile more. This desolate look on my face is making me slightly depressed.
But the rainbow overlay helps, right?
Plus this week is Pride Week in Vancouver! So YAY!

Summer is fully underway, definitely not complaining. But there have been a few unbearably hot days. Making dressing for a professional setting slightly difficult. Just how would one juggle the heat wave outside and the cold front inside? I know we would all want to put on some short shorts, crop tops and flip flops and call it a day. But for the office, giving off a professional image is crucial.
I find, having great well tailored pieces made with good material goes a long way. ShopBop is a great place to find a great collection of well curated designer goods that are classic and will last a long time as a wardrobe staple.
These pieces that I have picked below are perfect for a summer office look. Best yet, they are easily mix-and-matchable.
My favourite outfit are these pieces.
Elizabeth and James top
Joa Pleated skirt
With such a white on white combo, it's like a blank canvas for you to accesorize to your hearts content.
This great cross body purse from Rebecca Minkoff is perfect.
Rebecca Minkoff Purse
Totally gives this outfit a strawberry sundae feel.
Can't forget some shades for the summer. I love these versatile Linda Farrows
Linda Farrow Luxe sunglasses
Finally, footwear, strappy sandals are all the rage this season. These are slightly chunkier and adds more coverage and element of fun to the outfit.
Loeffler Randall sandals
Here are few more pieces are can easily be mix matched and incorporated into the look. Having a good base is very important and you can create many different looks from there.
Parker Devlin pants
Dsquared2 blue shirt
Tory Burch reversible tote
Vince Harem pants
This last piece is optional. Summers don't usually call for a scarf, however, this can double as a shawl when the office AC is blasting. It can also add some pizzazz to your purse as well.
Alex McQueen scarf
