9-5 & Beyond


Going from day to night can be as simple as the perfect, multi-tasking layering piece.  Part bodysuit, part bra, part slimming shapewear, part perfect top for cocktails after a long day at the office . Its a hybrid of all things wonderful and more importantly functional.  This bodysuit from Vedette is technically shape wear. With the popularity of  waist cinchers (post to come), butt enchanters (Lord knows I don’t need that) and thigh slimmers- it’s hard to escape the convenience of a little help.  But that doesn’t mean to you need to hide it!

With luxe fabrics, beautiful designs, and perfect fits- why not have it be seen and heard?  This bodysuit is the perfect piece to take from day to night. Layer it under a blouse or a blazer with a little peek-a-boo up top for your office 9-5 and peel off the layers for a cocktail after a long day or a night cap after a REALLY long day….we’ve all had them.  It’s timeless, elegant and will enhance all the right curves.  Bonus- you can remove the straps so that you can wear it with practically anything….

And let’s face it, feels good to feel good and feels even better to know what you have going on underneath will make your date night a little more special. ;)

I thought this gorgeous jacket from Fashion Nova deserved a post all to it’s own.  Beautiful camel colour, waterfall neckline, matching belt.  Check, check and check!  This classic jacket is suitable for 3 out of our 4 Canadaian seasons (which is pretty good, considering the 4th is an Arctic tundra). Of course it looks amazing with this two-piece set, but it would literally go with anything…..

Manhattan Coat- ℅:  Fashion Nova

Simple yet incredibly sexy.  I should have jumped on this 2-piece train a lot sooner, I must say.  Perfect fit, perfect length and perfectly cool.  Thanks to the wonderful people at Fashion Nova I managed to board before it was too late.  This set comes in a ton of colours and is sure to be flattering on any body type.

With cooler weather setting up shop this week, crop tops and bandeau tops might not seem like such a good idea, right? WRONG! It’s the best idea, but only if you have this high waisted skirt to bring it all together. Talk about a two in one . This skirt sucks you in better than any Spanxs I own.  To keep the look perfectly in falls colour pallet, nude pumps are a great option. But sneakers would look amazing, or a little bootie. Oh the options…I would pair sneakers with just about anything though.

Ever heard of taking it from day-to-night….this look is exactly what they are referring to.  Layer a cardigan for work, and march your booty all the way to cocktail hour. Free drinks are on the bartender, cuz…well…you’re smokin’.

Thanks for the train ticket Fashion Nova and thank you for partnering with me on this post and offering my beautiful readers 15% percent off of their purchase with discount code XOMADA.  Get it while it’s hot ladies, I’ll hold the train for you.
