I love dressing up! I must admit it's easier for me to dress up, as opposed to dressing down... plus dressing up just makes me feel better. The more put together I feel the bigger I smile, and the taller I stand; and trust me, I need all the height I can get!
The standard "business suit" has always been a bit of a yawn for me, which is why I love separates and mixing and matching. I found this tweed jacket a few years ago in my moms closet and confiscated it immediately! I LOVE it, especially the bright orange lining! I know that generally tweed is reserved for the cooler months, but when the sun goes down in the city, this little blazer always warms me up. The threadbare lining and desperate need for repairs is proof that this piece is a regular in my weekly wardrobe. When combined with stripes, a silk blouse and a few metallic accessories, this outfit made me soar high above my 5'2" stature, and the 5" heels didn't hurt either.
Happy Thursday, Everyone!
