Easy Going : Norwalk Polo + Tassel Loafers

Easy Going : Striped Polo + Tassel Loafers

On summer weekdays when I have no meetings I like to spare myself some comfort by wearing just a polo and chinos. This business casual look is easy going yet compliant to my office’s dress code. A couple nights ago I received this striped Norwalk polo from Frank & Oak that I ended up wearing to work the next morning. Upon trying it on, I was immediately impressed with this polo’s perfect fit and ultra soft fabric. I own quite a few pique polos in my closet, but this one is by far the most comfortable. Such a winning business casual piece!

Night Out : Leather Lapels + Double Monk Straps

Because summer nights out for me usually consist of simple meals followed or preceded by outdoor activities, it’s been a little while since I’ve dressed up for dining. So on Saturday when my friend Ida and I decided to go to The Acorn for a fine vegan meal, I jumped at the opportunity to pull out some new formal pieces that I had not yet worn. This tuxedo blazer and double monk strap shoes are both pieces in classic styles but with a modern twist – my favourite.

Bright Nights : Yellow + New Balance Classics

One of my favourite things about summer is the extended hours of daylight. During this month Vancouver has been having over 15 hours of sunlight each day; It’s a true luxury to be able to take post-dinner walk without having to throw on an extra jacket. This was not the case when I grew up in the Canadian prairies, since the temperature would easily drop below 10 degrees on summer nights. I believe that weather has a big impact of people’s moods, and other than the heavy showers that happen occasionally in Vancouver, I’m pretty pleased with my city’s climate!

Freestyle : Hooded Vest + Camo Details

Having a bit of a hard time believing it’s Thursday – this week completely flew by! It’s been a busy few days for me because I’ve just embarked on some new projects at work that have exercised a lot of my creative thinking. No complaints though, I always tell people that being busy is good because it means you’re important! Haha!

Contemporary : Bold Hues + Rennie Art Collection

Weekends are usually my chance to dress down in shorts and tees, but that was not the case this past weekend as I had to look polished to attend a tour of the Rennie Art Gallery in Chinatown. My friend invited me to this event last minute and I was pretty excited because I have always been a fan of contemporary art. When viewing art, I try to come from a learner’s perspective. Although I’m not an artist myself, artwork is able to give me ideas for styling and photography – which I use on this blog! This is especially true in modern art pieces since they present artistic ways to view mundane aspects of everyday life.
