Summer Suits

A pink suit had been on my wish list. Well now I have one! It is here and it is wonderful. I’m so smitten with it, I want to add the white suit below too. I already have one in black, and my wardrobe will be pretty well covered between the three, keeping the matching pieces together or as separates.

I sometimes wear suits to client meetings, styling them on the casual side. Colorful shoes, a fun bag, glasses (or sunglasses), and interesting jewelry are part of my usual go-to for styling. Or red lipstick, but that’s a lot of look all at once!

OK, a quick try-on! Doing a little #housetwinning here (tassel sconce, tassel earrings; pink wallpaper, pink suit; white trim, white top). The pants just arrived and need to be hemmed, but I’m very into the high waist. These jeans too! They’re possibly my new favorite, which is saying a lot to edge out the Madewell jeans I’ve loved so much.

    Very pretty! I opened the post expecting swimsuits, but this is so nice. Suits/blazers usually make me feel too masculine, but this style (and color!) wouldn’t. Great house twinning too.

    You don’t provide a link, but the leopard print shoes are fabulous! For anyone skeptical they’d wear them…I am a very conservative dresser but bought a similar pair years ago on clearance. I got SO MUCH wear out of them, and literally every single time I wore them I got compliments on them. (My kids refer to them as “the compliment shoes.”)
