30.8.10

It's been over a year !

Yes, over a year since I wore this suit last.
A year.
I am not sure why I don't wear it that often.
A wild guess could be that it is an informal (due to pant length)
suit, but then again I do not work in a formal environment.
The fabric is amazingly light, the color is light pink with thin
white, beige and blue lines.
Maybe it hangs in the part of the closet that I very seldom 
look at or it could be that I usually always wear it the same 
way and it just plain bores me.
I think that's it.
Whenever I have worn this in the past, I recall it being
worn with a white top. ALL THE TIME.
Also the same shoes I am wearing right now: white sandals.
I made an effort to mix prints (see below) in regards to the
shirt so I could take this suit out of this rut.
I need help...
How else would you wear this ?
What color shirt ?
Shoes ?
Accessories ?
Alter it ?
I am all ears.. Happy Monday !

I really like the subtle pattern mixing. I have such a hard time with suits... Maybe you can break it up into separates?

I also agree about breaking it up into 2 separate pieces. I think the jacket is flattering on you, but the capris not so much. I could see that jacket with jeans, a denim skirt, maybe even khakis. I also think the jacket would look cute with the sleeves rolled up.

I love the color of this suit! I agree with the above poster-that jacket looks awesome on you and I'd wear it by itself sometimes. How tall are those heels? I think maybe something in a pointier closed-toed heel might elongate your legs a little more and make the capris more flattering on you. Just a suggestion! :)

I really Like this suit. I would wear it with a black tank underneath and some statement necklaces and some black pointy heels.
To answer the question on shoe storage...
Right now we have an extra room in our house and I store some in there and some in my bedroom closet and some under the bed in a pull out organizer that is meant for blankets. It is really terribly unorganized because there are too many. I should probably downsize but I am not ready quite yet. : )

Btw, I got the Pura Lopez at foot candy online. I didn't put that down on my blog because it is my little secret : ) They have the Best Clearance that I have seen. I am being kind of selfish. I want all of the clearance shoes for myself Lol.

i think you are wearing it well as it is!

i am trying to be more brave/bold with mixing patterns. it is tricky. i am not all that bold with clothing -- more so with jewelry. but i am trying!

sometimes pastels just fade into the background. it is hard to make them pop.

I agree with some other commenters, I would totally split this suit up and wear the pieces seperately, it might be easier to get more use out of it that way. The jacket looks beautiful on you!

I can see how the pant length makes it a bit awkward -- perhaps if you skinnyified them you might be happier? I've done that before...

Either way the jacket is still quite lovely and you should wear it more on it's own. I would love it see it with more saturated colors and prints!

I would put a more funky t shirt underneath something a bit 'out there' in a brighter darker colour maybe a black with really bright lettering colouring or something all over. Maybe u could take the trousers up a bit and make them into long length shorts. Jacket gorgeous though anyway. xx
