Suit Up!


QMack Blazer + Pants // Saint Laurent Tribute Sandals

3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Pashli // Tibi Tank (on sale) // gifted Lulu Frost Necklace

Under ordinary circumstances, you can find me in a suit… never.  My style is more casual – I don’t need to dress up that much for work and I love my jeans and easy dresses.  But I fell in love with the black watch plaid on this suit, and had fun suiting up.  I wore this outfit at the start of fashion week to a day of meetings + the Kate Spade preview and  a fun event at the Lulu Frost showroom after work.  The plaid makes it a little more fun/less formal, and you can easily mix + match the pants and blazer as separates.

    So classy! A suit is something I never wear, but I definitely should give it a shot! You’re right, the plaid totally keeps this a bit more casual but still so chic.

    honestly, b.

      Pretty true to size but I sized up in the pants (I usually wear a 6 and got an 8!)

    That is a nice suit, and you look beautiful. I don’t think I could pull off the pants, but I would definitely wear the jacket. It looks really good on you, and I love that necklace with it!

    Shut up! You look AHH-MAZING Grace. I love the printed suit look and I can’t even believe it’s from Macy’s. I’m right there with the Average Girls Guide, I would have put my money on J Crew!

    Black watch plaid is my very favorite! So classic – makes me think of all my holiday dresses I had as a little girl! Haha, but in the best of ways! Love this suit!
