Working girl: Suiting alternatives

I was inspired by the suit for this outfit. I love the structured details of a suit, but I wanted to mix in a more contemporary piece like these skinny pants to balance it out. I used a classic blue and white striped ruffled shirt but left it untucked, which kind of made me feel like a British 60s rocker going to the office. And in the true form of a suit, I kept the top and bottom in matching colors, which I thought looked really simple and classic. I don’t know about you, but I feel so much more productive and important when I am dressed like this at work.

I thought I would share the photo below because of the funny expression on my face. I was trying to do an interesting pose and midway through I just gave up and smiled. Artistic? No?. Ha!

  2. Nice look! I love pairing a suit blazer with something more casual, like jeans, a skirt or a cute dress, but I like how you've done this with black skinny jeans and a ruffled blouse….nice interpretation of the look!
