The Thrifted Short Project: One Bermuda….Five Ways

Look # 2

Yikes! Major storm and power outage in Toronto yesterday! We are going thirty eight hours plus without power!!! It really is a hot, stinky mess over here – check out the hash tag #darkto on Twitter for the details. Hence the lack of a post yesterday – not to worry, Thriftjuice is back up and running today and we will continue with The Thrifted Short Project. Woo Hoo!

Are we having fun yet? I sure am! In today’s look I am channeling a sophisticated preppy vibe which I feel is work appropriate. When dressing for “the office” we sometimes tend to shy away from colour for fear of coming off unprofessional, however I believe that you can wear bold colour to work as long as it is done in a sophisticated manner. Navy blue is the colour I look to when I want to¬†wear bright, bold colour in a polished and professional way. It compliments vibrant hues without the high contrast of black, and when worn in a blazer or vest, adds a level of professionalism to almost any look.
