LAVELLE TORONTO

I have promised my readers more posts from Lisbon. But since I have been back home for a while I wanted to give my readers a break from my Portugal trip and updated you all on some of the things I have been doing lately.
I enjoy discovering new places in the summer, and today was no different. Lavelle is a luxurious restaurant, with a lounge area, pool and an outdoor bar roof top. Sitting 16 stories high Lavelle has one of the best views of the escarpments and the famous CN Tower due to the great location. What do I like about this place? Well first of all I enjoy patient and friendly service. The workers really make an effort in giving customers the full Lavelle experience by being very informative and suiting your needs specially regarding reservations.
Taste some of the most refined cosine by famous chef Romain Avril and don’t forget to make reservations way ahead in advance because this place is always packed specially in the summer. Come picture ready and don’t forget to take that Instagram perfect shot.

For more information pleased check out Lavelle’s website at http://chezlavelle.com/

Slip Dress a.k.a Cami Dress over T-shirt Trend
Where have you been if you haven’t seen this trend? Fashion is all inspired by “night wear” lately. Just when we thought that slip or cami dresses were just for bed, designers were inspired to bring this fabric from the comfort of wearing at home to the streets.

This trend was very present in the 90s and now is back. You can be versatile with it by wearing it with not just high heels, but also with runners or even flat sandals. The slip dress is a very comfortable item to wear because of its fabric. It is nice and soft. But the down part is that this fabric gets wrinkly very fast. So you will need to iron it before wearing it, and as you sit down throughout the day this material tends to get even wrinkled.

I would say that when I saw this trend I wasn’t in love with it because I was seeing celebrities wearing it with t-shirts that weren’t fitted. I wouldn’t wear this loose dress with a loose t-shirt underneath. That is why I paired it with a more fitted t-shirt.

Remember to always put your spin on things you don’t need to stick so much with the trend.
As I always say FASHION HAS NO RULES!

WORK WEAR

Lets talk Work Wear! When it comes to work wear, I am a firm believer in making the work attire as personalized as possible. I say this because many times I see people in dress pants and dressy bottom up shirts and they don’t look like they are having fun with it.

Fashion needs to be fun. If you work in the office, at a bank or another administration sector try to find out first the proper work attire. In many places for example, wearing this Calvin Klein t-shirt is not acceptable due to the fact that many businesses don’t want advertisements logos/brands from other companies advertised when they are not affiliated. Whereas in some companies bringing out your personality through your attire is seen as something very cool as long as you don’t draw unnecessary attention to yourself.

Perhaps what you can do different in this look is adding a blazer or even a leather jacket (without too many embellishments of course)  and you are set for the office. I took the approach of wearing my jacket that can be worn indoors without giving a heavy feel. I tend to wear my coats unbuttoned to appear to be  oversize since is very trendy now.

Work Wear attire doesn’t need to age you. Always try to incorporate fun and elegant looks at your place of work because it tells a lot about yourself.
