When I was little I always loved to see women in power suits. The strong shoulder, the sometimes bold-colour and the confidence that went along with the look always intrigued me!
This blazer is one of my favourites in my closet! It goes so well with so many things, and it’s in a bright colour that I love! It’s my ode to power-suits in my own fun way. And since the office was going to be closed for Good Friday, I decided to dress a little more simple for my 9-5 look. I guess you could say it was dressy-casual?
I’m a repeat accessory girl, so you’ll more than likely see me use the same accessories throughout the week/month/year. Again it depends on my mood! The earrings are vintage I believe(?). Can’t remember – they were given to me by a colleague. And I had to do a close-up of the interesting brocade design on my vintage Swatch. The wishbone necklace I’m wearing – it’s been around my neck ever since I bought it a earlier this week from Brandy Melville.
My Mona heels from J.Crew in Nude are a staple in my closet; again another item that goes a long way with a lot of different pieces!
I’m looking forward to this weekend for all the fun, family & food!
Hope everyone enjoys the long weekend! Happy Easter!
I love power suits on women too! I’m hoping to score one this year and have it tailored for my short frame. I’m thinking cobalt blue? Those earrings are TDF!

Yes! It’s definitely harder to find a ready-to-wear suit when you’re on the shorter side! Getting it tailored is a great idea!!
LOVE the pop of red! You look FAB!
