Spring Suiting

IMG_3405.JPGI have been wanting a tailored suit for some time now.  How about since LAST Easter.  I’ve been searching monthly for that perfect suit that I could wear anywhere…dress it up, dress it down.  Use the pants one way, use the jacket another.  Mix and match like CRA-ZEE!  Yet after many long, endearing search engines later, I found many, but not in a price-range that I felt comfortable.

Then out of the blue, I get an email from J. Crew.  They were offering 50% plus and extra 15% off of any style with the code SPRING.  I dove in and found me this suit!

I love the versatile blue.  You can add that pop of color like I did here with red shoes.  Or, do a monochromatic look, adding other shades of blue.  You could add pearl details or woven details.  The possibilities are endless.  I love that about this suit!

I can wear it to a spring party, like the Derby Day, or a party like Wine and Swine.  I have so many options with this suit!

I have paired it today with gold hoop earrings, a white ruffled blouse, red statement shoes and a white envelope clutch.  And, maybe a cute dog!!  She pulled out the white in my blouse!;)

Do you own a tailored suit?  If so, what kind? What color? What style??

Toodle-oo,
