Today's Outfit: Chambray and Lace

Zara shirt | H&M skirt | Joe Fresh belt | BCBGeneration and J. Crew bracelets | Roots clutch | Colcci shoes

I'm going to keep wearing pencil skirts sans tights as long as the sunny weather holds out. Case in point: this chambray-and-lace ensemble which I wore to the ION magazine x Little Burgundy media preview and party. In fact, I liked it so much I wore it again on Sunday for an afternoon of shopping and errands and dinner with my parents, albeit with a lower heel. Judging from the compliments and the admiring side-eyes and once-overs I got while trying on wedges at J. Crew, I'd say this combination was a resounding success.

Aside from celebrating my birthday (a quiet Tuesday dinner at Les Faux Bourgeois) and moving offices (from Yaletown to downtown bordering on Gastown), life lately has been an unending cycle of work, fashion events, yoga and salsa (whenever I can fit it in), and watching Netflix at home when I'm too tired to do anything else. This weekend though, the boy and I are busting out of our humdrum routines with a brief getaway to Seattle. Fun and relaxation, here I come!

To my Canadian readers, have a happy Thanksgiving weekend! And before you go into a turkey coma, remember to enter my Shopbop giveaway.


  1. Sweet outfit, Lisa! Question, any recommendations on where to get durable good quality flats? And if you know a good brand, please tell. My current pair of flats are pinching my baby toes so I need a new pair that's more comfortable. Leather ones preferred!

    1. I've been pretty impressed with Banana Republic's flats. They have a durable sole and a soft cushioned insole, and are made with real leather. The price is pretty reasonable (between $80 and $100).

  2. awesome pairing. I wouldn't think of it, but it works.

  3. Waw I can not believe the skirt is H&M... so sophisticated, and to think I was just about to give up on them. :)

  4. Great look - I love the pop of red!
