What I Wore :: The New Suit

I love suits. Done right, they can be incredibly feminine and fabulous (with a touch of powerful). I rarely get the opportunity to wear any of my suits any more, but I'm always experimenting with new ways to mix up my suiting pieces. This week I'm channeling my inner Olivia Palermo (girlfriend loves a modern suit).

 Surprise attack! These aren't even pants! They're jeans! A pair of black jeans is way more comfortable than dress pants but can create a faux suit look - particularly perfect for traveling. Choose a trouser or skinny cut to get a great modern silhouette.

 Two obsessions this week - this bag and necklace. This JewelMint piece attracted all sorts of attention today when I was out and about. It's a little bit glammy sparkly, a little bit cleopatra. Second obsession - this fabulous bag that arrived on my door step this afternoon. I didn't even know I needed a nude bag until I saw this one and ordered it immediately.

Finally obsession - office or mall appropriate pointy wedges. These are business in the front, party in the back for sure. I love the leopard heels!

The moral of the story is, you can totally rock black jeans at work and people probably won't even notice.
