Professional Pink

In a classic business setting most people stick to neutral colors. Normally a dark plain blazer and matching pants. Likewise, the undershirt is a grey, white, or light blue blouse. The neutral colors indicate a form of salaried workers. The bottoms, pants or skirts, are to be crisp and straight down.
Recently, I saw a few lighter colored blazers in an accessory shop. Due to my affinity for the color pink I found it adorable. My only struggle was how to make this blazer business casual.
My veterinary courses require a blue-color dress code on Fridays. So, I decided to test out my outfit for the day. I paired my double buttoned pink blaze,r from Versona, with a simple flair skirt, I got from H&M. I also have a lace pink top from Anthropologie.
I then accessorizes my outfit with pieces from Primark. I attached a velvet bow to the lace trim of my top. I added a pink floral hair pins to push my hair back. For shoes I kept the professional trend and wore black round toe heels. However, for after class I added my pair of feathered light pink glitter pumps.
The outfit was a stretch out of my normally work wear or business professional attire, yet it made me stand out from all the other uniform looks. Work wear can still be chic and cute. The professional pink look was a go that I would repeat again.
Down below, I attached an outfit set and links. Listed below is wear you can find similar items to my professional pink outfit.

Monochrome Spring

As spring and summer trends start to fly in it becomes essential to rember to classic chic look. Every spring and summer clothing store is going to be piled with bright colors and floral prints. Which are all lovely and viable options.
However, there are other ways to sport a spring look without charging up a storm for pastels.A monochromatic color scheme can still achieve the same spring or summery feel.
A lace blouse with trimmings is a fresh represntation of the vitality of life. Everyone who is in the workforce probably has this iteam too. Another wardorbe stable is a pair of pants. If you have pants or a skirt in a solid color with scalloped lining its a cute way to descritely incorporate a floral outlook. Likewise a patteren coat can bring in a splash of summer youth without the bright colors.
Overall you can still have a nice and soothing summer and spring outfit from your basic wardrobe needs. Staples in grey, black, creme, white, nude, and beige can still be worn during these seasons. The monochromatic colors are to be utilized every season and can provide chic looks.

Last Zoo Day of the Year

As an aspiring zoological surgeon I feel at home at the zoo. The zoo and the beach are definatly my happy places. So I was thrilled to get one last visit in at the zoo before 2017 commenced.

Recently I have been having class at the zoo and have been able to visit after my course. Unlike, when I travel to see my animals at a reserve or protected island, visiting the zoo is seeing conservation at work for me. Along with that its a place that is comforting and inspiring for me to see ecological protection in place. AVMA zoos help protect animals and allow them to have free range in acres that are assimilated to mimmic there home nautre.

Likewise, as an animal lover I absolutley adore stopping and seeing all of God’s creatures. In this most recent visit I got to feed giraffes and see a baby pygmy hippo. As always I stopped by to see my other favorites too. Macropod animals are definatly have my love so I had to hang out with my wallabies for awhile. Likewise, I also feed the lorikeets and got swarmed by several of them.

All in all it was a great day at the zoo because zoo days are the best days.

Derby Days

Currently the hight of football season is in play and the commencment of horse racing season has sprinted off for the roses. So, it was essential to find a semi casual outfit to fit these midday occassions. Normally, this is an attire dress code I can struggle with. However with this seasons fast moving trends and new graphic tshirts it was a easy match.

I decided on a multi colored tweed skirt from Shein. It was affordable and slimming. The a line skirt was girly with cues of color. The fabric had mixed pinks, blues, and yellows with the grey and black background. The skirt stopped mid thigh so was easy to match with a pair of navy heels. Flirty and fun was the theme of the skirt. It has been easy to utilize in the Melbourne Racetrack.

Likewise, I was in need of a top. After living in the south I enjoy brining in influences of that hospitality. Draper James had several graphic tshirts that I could have paired my skirt with. The welcoming and charming slogans are fun mockings of “southernisms” of the south.  However, I opted on the Hold Your Horses top. It was perfect for a casual day at the races and perfect for later day tailgates.

Needless to say, I found the perfect outfit for a semi causal day. I matched the tweed Shein shirt with a Draper James top. To accesseroize I added navy heels that matched my tops text and a white hat for the sunny day ahead.
