Suit Up

Pants? Winners (similar here) Jacket? Talbots, thrifted (similar vintage) Necklace? c/o Name Necklace
Clutch? Thrifted Shoes? Ralph Lauren, DSW (here)

I loved these pants when I wore them with the white wool bomber (which is now almost 50% off here) last time but I think I love them even more as a full-on suit. This is a whole lot of look and I did have a mini mirror moment where I told my reflection I had to fully commit if I were to set foot out the door.
I also asked Matt if he was embarrassed by my outfit and he told me no. It was a rhetorical question. I would never have changed if he had said yes and he would never have said yes. 

Besides the excitement of discovering that my vintage blazer matched my new-ish pants exactly, I was also excited to bust out a necklace with my name on it. I mean, if your name is Emily, Ashley or Jessica, this is probably not a significant moment. But if your parents have blessed you with an odd name, like, let's say... Jentine and the only thing you ever owned that had your name on it was a shirt with puffy paint back in grade 2, then this necklace is a big deal...

The jacket and pants were made for each other! I'm glad you had the guts to wear it out. You look great!

I'm also a lady with a funny spelled name who can never find pens/coffee mugs/jewelry/tacky gift shop items with her name on them, so I'm pretty impressed (read: jealous) of that necklace.

Love the look! And the necklace is wonderful...when I was a kid my mom always had to special order monogrammed things for me or I went without...price you have to pay for a unique name!

I love the red pants and jacket worn as a suit. You look awesome. Pinned. Boom!

This outfit rocks. Never would have known the jacket and pants didn't come together.

And now I'm sad that 50% off bomber jacket can't be shipped to the US :(

I feel ya. You wouldn't believe how hard it has been to find robin in any form. I've had to stick to monograms for this reason. I can't believe this suit is composed of two separately acquired pieces. They are perfect together and, as always, you look amazeballs. And I hate that term but there's just nothing more suitable (ha! Get it? SUITable? . . . I do all my own jokes) to explain how fabulous you look.

Jennifer said...

You got those pieces separately? They look perfect together!

Natalie said...

You are like, one of three people in the world who can currently pull off the trouser, monochromatic, double-breasted suit. One of the others is Gwenyth Paltrow, and I'm not sure who the other person is, but I'll leave the benefit of the doubt open that maybe one other person can. ROCK IT!

natalie said...

YEAH girl you look awesome!

Ruthie {Look Learn Love} said...

Laura said...

I think you are the only person who could have ever found two pieces that match as perfectly as these do...and to go out in a red pant suit. You go girl!

Heather K. said...

At first sight, the red was too much.... now I can't stop looking at it. Color tricks. You look so chic!

That is a power suit! Love how 2 different pieces are so perfectly well matched.

Emily said...

this is amazing.
and i cant believe you think my name is boring.
GOD!

I have a red blazer I think you could really rock. 'vintage' joseph ribkoff. i bought it probably a year ago but I cant pull it off. it's long... knee length on me... probably butt length on you... and with gold buttons. Come visit me and it's yours. i'm too lazy to photograph it for the shop.

Emily said...

p.s. i cant believe you think my name is boring :'(

jas said...
