Power Suited

Paloma says...

Shout out again to MK at the Outfit Posts blog for featuring our little blog on her own ALL WEEK! So flattering. Especially from someone with a fashion sense we have long admired. :)  Can't wait to see your interpretations of our outfits!

Today I am boring in a suit - had a court appearance this morning and meeting with a witness this afternoon so left the suit on even though usually I ditch the jacket in favor of a cardigan or something.  Feeling all the more powerful today because of it. OK, not really.

T-Shirt: The Limited (same but scoop neck) / Suit: The Limited (jacket) (skirt)
Shoes: Nine West / Necklace: Target

Another note on suits - before I became a lawyer, I always assumed that suits were worn one way only - with a button-down blouse underneath.  Basically, like a guy.  The truth is, us ladies are far luckier than the boys because we can wear our suits with just about anything  underneath. I mean, obvs I am not suggesting you wear only a lacy bralette under your jacket (though Zoe Hart totally would - but she also wears stilettos and short-shorts to work as a doctor), but a comfy tee? Absolutely. Today I've got this great one from The Limited, which is super soft, super comfy, and in a great color.

  1. Agreed. It's amazing how quickly a tailored suit jacket or blazer can dress up a top. Learning this has been key in expanding my wardrobe options :)
