Style Bee - June 30x30 - Looks 19-22

JUNE 30×30 – LOOKS 19-22

06.23.17

FRI-YAY indeed! How have the first few days of Summer been for you? We welcomed the new season in on Wednesday with a solstice feast in the yard and it was the perfect way to step into what’s promising to be our most hectic summer yet. Few things calm my soul like a home-grown, home-made dinner with a glass of cold rosé, my fella’s company and a corgi by my feet. I hope you had a chance to savour the longest day of the year too!

When I was staring down the barrel of a really busy work week last weekend I opted to take the uniform approach to planning my outfits. The formula I went with was a slim, high-rise pant, a simple top and a relaxed but structured outer layer. The forecast was forgiving compared to last week, with lots of low 20s temperatures and a bit of rain thrown in too. It turned out to be the best approach for comfort, peace of mind, practicality and feeling put together despite a busy schedule.

So here’s a look at how that formula worked in 4 different outfits! 


LOOK 19 – MONDAY JUNE 19


Style Bee - June 30x30 - Looks 19-22

Style Bee - June 30x30 - Looks 19-22

TEMPERATURE – High of 25º C and cloudy.

ACTIVITIES – No surprises here. I was working in the studio most of the day/evening but snuck out for a long walk with the pup. It was my favourite kind of Monday, distraction free and highly productive.

ITEM PERFORMANCE – To be honest, these items just kind of fell into an outfit because they were close to each other on the clothes rack. But once I tested them out in real life I was pretty pleased with the result. I love the look of light wash denim with black and these sandals never fail to take the look up a style notch. With a couple of carefully chosen accessories like my necklace and backpack I was totally ready to zip out and about.



LOOK 20 – TUESDAY JUNE 20


Style Bee - June 30x30 - Looks 19-22 Style Bee - June 30x30 - Looks 19-22

TEMPERATURE – High of 22º C with a medley of sun, rain and wind.

ACTIVITIES – Haircut in the morning, followed by a planning session at a local café, a few errands and an afternoon/evening of office time.

ITEM PERFORMANCE – I LOVE how this look came together. It might be one of my top three favourites from the whole challenge. I was inspired to try pairing my cream Georgia and white skinnies together after seeing that combo a lot lately. I went almost full monochrome by adding my linen blazer (hands down best buy of the season for me) and my suede flats but added a pop of richness with my oxblood bag. This is one outfit I cannot wait to repeat soon!

LOOK 21 – WEDNESDAY JUNE 21


Style Bee - June 30x30 - Looks 19-22 Style Bee - June 30x30 - Looks 19-22

TEMPERATURE – High of 22º C and perfect.

ACTIVITIES – Lunch meeting to brainstorm some creative projects and an afternoon/evening in the studio (again!). I managed to sneak out for a nice walk with the pup and finished up in time for a summer solstice feast in the yard.

ITEM PERFORMANCE – This look was perfect for the day’s events and I was super comfy in the office but still felt presentable enough for the outside world. I love the colours in this look and the tonal shades of green paired with white skinnies feels fresh, while black leather accents keep it grounded.

LOOK 22 – THURSDAY JUNE 22


Style Bee - June 30x30 - Looks 19-22 Style Bee - June 30x30 - Looks 19-22

TEMPERATURE – High of 25º C and stormy.

ACTIVITIES – I spent the day glued to my computer screen for the most part, which was just fine thanks to the rain. The skies cleared in the afternoon so I took Dobby for a stroll, squeezed in a workout and returned to my studio for an evening of work. Dave and I did manage to escape for a late dinner downtown but I just threw on jeans and my T-Top for that.

ITEM PERFORMANCE – This look seems pretty corporate but it was actually very comfortable. Overall I quite like this outfit but this was the first time I wore the white bodysuit as a top and it felt a little scant in terms of coverage. I love it as a base layer under other items but it’s a tad too tight and sheer at the same time to be worn as a top, at least for me. Under a blazer, cardigan or duster it’s OK and it is a super soft cotton that feels great on.


  • LINEN BLAZER | REFORMATION | $228 USD | WEARING XS | MADE IN USA
  • SILK PANT | c/o EILEEN FISHER | WEARING XXS | RESPONSIBLY MADE IN CHINA
  • CLAUDIA MULE | c/o L’INTERVALLE | $138 CAD| WEARING 37 (USUALLY US7) | MADE IN SPAIN |

I had to forego the style tips section today since I was short on time but I’ll be sure to include them in the next post! With only 1 week left in the #JUNE30x30 Challenge I’m looking forward to pushing myself to make the final 7 days the best yet! I’ll definitely be tuning into the hashtag feed and revisiting the looks my friends Andrea (Seasons + Salt) and Paige (Style This Life) have shared so far for inspiration. Looking forward to finishing the challenge strong!

    That Opelle backpack is so cute!! I want one for trips. Do you have any recommendations for similar ones (sleek, small but can fit enough stuff, black, leather) that are a little cheaper? Thanks Lee 🙂

    My closet’n’I are truly having a “summer makeover” thanks to You?

    • Thanks so much Patricia! I agree a good hair day and some lip colour can really make an outfit 🙂

      The clothes rack I have been using for years now is from IKEA and it’s been great. Not the sturdiest thing ever but very easy to assemble and move around. It’s awesome for the 10×10 challenge for sure! xo

    My favorite was look 19! It’s comfortable, casual, but #likeaboss for me! I haven’t tried black with light denim yet for June 30×30 but I should!

  7. Following along and really impressed how professional, yet personal all the outfits are. How about a peak at your closet area that houses the items you are using? You know us designer’s….we have to snoop!-Laurel

    • Thanks so much Laurel! Haha I can definitely appreciate that 😉 I shared a peek on my Insta Stories when the challenge kicked off but essentially I’ve just been keeping everything on a clothes rack and shoes on the floor 😛 Not super fancy but it’s been good! xo

    I actually really like Look 22! I think the cut of the bodysuit helps it from being too corporate, but still polished. You’re in the home stretch!
