All Dressed Up With Nowhere To Go Featuring Michelle Addison

3-minute read

We get it. The temptation to slip into a comfy sweatsuit day after day may seem like the best (and easiest) option during quarantine and you’ve probably been debating if the term “dress code” applies when working from home. However, as we approach the one month mark of our new routines, we’re recognizing the impact of how we dress day-to-day.

There’s something to be said about returning to your long lost morning routine—including your outfitting options. We caught up with one of our favourite West Coast stylists, Michelle Addison, to hear her take on dressing for success at home and how she’s styling our favourite shoes and accessories!

"Since we are on day 887 of the pandemic we might collectively be feeling a bit of lockdown fatigue. Just because we may feel hopeless, we don’t have to look it! Getting dressed in the morning can make us feel better. I like to creatively use the clothes I have and selectively add a few additions. Be mindful of what you have and always choose quality over quantity. Poppy Barley has the quality I want in an investment shoe that won’t break my bank account. Comfortable, stylish and clearly a high standard in quality, Poppy Barley shoes make me excited to get dressed for a day at my computer and trying to not keep looking in the fridge!"

Look #1: Virtual Happy Hour 

Listen—now is the time to wear a cropped top with pretty much anything. No six-pack required when your Zoom call is focusing just above the waist! I love a high-waisted coloured cropped pant with The Statement Slingback. These shoes are the perfect heel height for sitting or walking around your house.

Look #2: Casually Cool

We still need to go to the grocery store and I prefer to be hands-free so I can hand sanitize at least every five seconds. Wearing this neutral bag with my tone-on-tone look is one of my favourite go-to looks. Try mixing neutral colours and wearing them with a pop of colour on your feet.

Look #3: Easy-Going Elegance

Don’t we ALL have a jean skirt somewhere?! I have many but this year I opted for a long one, worn with these beautiful camel-coloured Petite Pumps. I’m ready for spring ... or to answer the door when my package arrives from Amazon. Blue jean skirts (or jeans), brown suede shoes and striped sweaters complete my quintessential spring look.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
