Work & Play || One Layer Away

A couple weeks ago I went to Edmonton to visit my sister and do some Christmas shopping.  While I was there I had to visit one of my favourite stores, Aritzia. And of course I found a few treats for myself…. you know the old one for you, one for me deal.  I picked up these pants and this crop top sweater.  The crop top, specifically, has been a staple in my wardrobe ever since.  I love that it can be easily worn with skirts (as seen here), these pants, or layered with a blouse to make it work appropriate.

Check out how I have transitioned this outfit from day to night by simply adding a blouse under the crop top.

The transition from work to play can literally be one layer away… (typically I would wear a white tank under the blouse but I forgot for the shoot- whoops!)


I have been really crushing my New Year wardrobe resolution of buying basics like this crop. How are your resolutions going?! Also, I have been trying to wear my hair straight more often… I’m not sure how I feel about it, thoughts?

*Update: See the cute bracelets I am wearing?! Those were given to me by one of my very sweet students! At the time, I tried to ask him where they were from but he couldn’t remember.   His mom has since let me know that they are from Color By Amber!  I love the neutral colors of these cuffs mixed with a little leopard print to give my arm candy that little bit of edginess!




Ps.  If you’re wondering… yes, it was freezing!
