Happy Birthday to my Sister

Happy Birthday to my sister Chelsea! Sorry I couldn't be home to make you a cake, although I'd never be able to make one as good as yours, haha! I hope you have a lovely day 

Love, Bee.

Woah, just had a bit of a tiring long day at work. You know, one of the best things about my job is that I get to attend conferences and workshops. You might be thinking that seems boring, but I'm grateful to have the opportunity to gain knowledge from the speakers at these events; events that most people have to pay for.

This week, I learned more about crowdfunding and PR. Public Relations is definitely something that my blog has been lacking. I'd like to get more into the local scene, although admittedly I have been rather secluded from Winnipeg. People always seem surprised to hear that I'm from Manitoba, Canada (over Instagram or on here) so I've been thinking about how I can showcase where I live more. I have done a couple reviews here or there, but I do love local restaurants and would like to showcase that sort of thing more often. My biggest problem? Patience not to eat my food immediately when it comes. And maybe the embarrassment of being that person taking pictures of my food...nah, I'm okay with it.

Anyway, here is my latest outfit. It felt nice to pull these boots out from storage. Sometimes it's good to be a hoarder.

Wrapped // Free Island Sweater, H&M Skirt


Layering black pieces that have different shapes and textures... 

My least favourite style has to be 'office'. You know the look. Pencil skirts, slacks, button up tops or blouses. Maybe a statement necklace. 


I try to retain my own style while sticking to office dress code (which, in most places, is to look presentable/appropriate and not wear jeans), but still find that I fall back on the generic office look if I haven't planned properly. I think my go-to trick is to find pieces that are classic (a black skirt, sweater, white button up, etc) yet have unique features to them. For example, this twisted sweater and asymmetrical skirt.


How do you dress at work?
