I think it suits me.

I keep seeing girls on the street in fitted, pretty, color coordinated suits and a far cry from the manly power suit of the 90's. I like the idea of a sweet little suit, crossing between Murphy Brown on the job and Audrey Hepburn as Jo Stockton in Funny Face with a bit of power and grace.
Also, it gave me an excuse to wear my new favorite shoes!
JCrew Factory blouse, Gap velvet blazer, Coach watch, Kate Spade wallet, Garnett Jewelry necklace, BDG pants, Bass saddle shoes

*Edit 4/11/12: For relevance, I stumbled upon this while perusing Rookie today. Yes. EXACTLY what I was going for.

  2. I am on the hunt for nice black pants/jeans so that I can wear an outfit similar to this!  ALSO, BASS SADDLE SHOES! I *LOVE* those.  Gosh, I love them so much.

  3. The shoes are a perfect addition to this outfit.  They really make a cool, laid-back statement.

  5. I nearly bought that GAP blazer at a thrift store a little while ago, but it's soo similar to a vintage one I already have, I thought I should hold off. Kinda regretting it since the shoulders on this one are more flattering than the one I have! I love how you're paired it with the black and white gingham and the saddle shoes. Very very cute! I also I have two pairs of those pants, haha. They're my favorite!

  10. UGH do you notice that BDG cuts them differently now!? This pair and my jeans are from 2010 and now when I try to buy pants there they have changed the cut to be for people with NO butt/hips and if anything I've lost weight since then. SO ANNOYING.
