*BUMPING* because 99% of Style&co merchandise is now on sale! You can grab the looks below for 30-60% off the regular price – and summer hasn’t even begun! Start shopping.
I know you’ve heard the term “double-duty” fashion, or “it takes you from boardroom to bar” (translation: day to night). But what if you require outfits for:
a) a professional conference
b) a cocktail party
c) a special occasion brunch
d) a day in a theme park
Where should you shop? For me, I love Style&co. Available exclusively at Hudson’s Bay, they offer stylish, on trend, and most importantly, affordable pieces that will allow you to effortlessly create a summer makeover!
And today, I’m so pleased to show you a variety of easy, casual chic, and office-appropriate summer looks that are at the top of my rotation, especially while I was in Orlando for the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration! Yep… these outfits were modeled on location from my hotel room, at the resort, and of course, in the parks!
First, every mom needs a pair of Tummy Control Capri Pants. They have a control panel that helps smooth the silhouette; however, they’re not overly constrictive and are actually quite comfy to wear. Dress them up with a blouse for the office, or pair them with a tee for a weekend of shopping or lunch with the family. The capris feature a 5-pocket style and are available in 3 colours!
I chose to go casual-chic with a simple white Style&co tee with a scoop neck and woven cap sleeves. And to drop the “office” feel, I can simply switch out for these Drawstring Cargo Roll Up Capris in “Titanium”. I wore this exact outfit at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, and felt both stylish and comfortable! (The pendant necklace above is the GUESS Double Heart And Crystal Fireball Pendant Necklace.)
For a “casual Friday”-ready look, I adore this Pineapple Tee! Slightly sheer with mesh stripe, it’s long enough to pair with leggings or skinny jeans for a fun, flirty look.
My outfit of choice at the parks? Lightweight Drawstring Cargo Roll Up Capris in “White” and my mermaid tee, of course (only appropriate when at Disney!). The temperatures soared to 35°C, so I truly appreciate the lightweight material of the capris. Functional and fashionable is always a win!
Of course, even with the hot summer days, summer nights can be a little cool. Grab this super stylish White Denim Jacket. I ordered the petite version to stay on trend with the more cropped look for this season, but the style is available in regular sizing, too.
Have to admit, I’ve found quite a few occasions to wear this denim jacket! Layered with a casual tee and the Tummy Control Capri Pants, on the midi dress pictured above for a casual-chic look, and even tossed over a tank top for late nights.
Finally, there are times you need something a little extra special – and this Paisley Sharkbite Dress fits the bill (see similar style here.) Designed to drape elegantly, this pliable sleeveless style has a gathered stitching on shoulder straps and waist, and a sharkbite hem. It’s also perfect for brunch – and in this case, I wore it to a very special Mother’s Day brunch!
And THAT’s how I took my summer wardrobe from the boardroom (the conference) to the bar (the parties) to the boardwalk (the theme parks)! Love what you see? Grab these looks for less – most pieces are on sale at Hudson’s Bay in-store and online.
