By now you know how much I love jackets and heels. I truly enjoy dressing up and looking professional. However, the idea of traditional black suits and white blouses just make me choke... too plain for my dramatic style personality.
Even during my most successful days in the corporate world you would never see me in a traditional suit.
Yes, I did have black suits but never wore the pieces together, or I made sure I mixed them with colours.
Last week I had a full day of meetings in the city with different people that I am looking to collaborate with. I wanted to look professional but was feeling a bit funky.
I remembered my patterned pants and light blue heels. I was 100% feeling this look, yet needed to add some credibility on the top. So this structured navy jacket was the way to go.
It is not very clear in the photo but part of the pattern on the pants matches beautifully with my shoes ;) Making me feel like it was meant to be.
I have never worn these pieces together before. You can not imagine how excited I get when I find new ways to put things together.
When was the last time you had a really good play with your clothes? We all tend to get stuck in a rut, where we wear the same top with the same pants and shoes all the time, then we wonder why we are bored with our clothes...
I would really love you to schedule some time this week to play with your wardrobe. Try some different combinations and make sure you wear an outfit you have never put together before.
I am wearing: Top: Zara, Jacket: Cue, Pants; COL, Shoes: Nine West, Earrings: Swarovski.
