It's a Suit...For a Lady. A Lady Suit.

Please don't ask me to explain the title of this post. I can't. Really. Onwards and upwards.

As I’m sure you’ve all noticed, this grey blazer is quickly becoming one of my favorite items. I can’t help it – I feel so authoritative when I wear it to teach, especially paired with this new satchel style bag from Target. This is how one teaches the rise of Athenian imperialism in style. Lesson learned.





pants: thrifted, Banana Republic / top: Old navy / blazer: F21 / necklace: my grandmother’s / purse: Target

I’m seriously full on obsessed with blazers and all the ways to wear them this fall…and evidenced by my latest Polyvore doodlings.

This blazer is such a great piece, so versatile! I love it with the white top and your new bag is great.
Ahh totally loving all 3 of those blazers on your polyvore set, and the velvet shoes, I really am lusting after some heeled wedge velvet booties!

a blazer ALWAYS makes one more authoritative. I bought 3 the semester I started teaching. :) And I sure wish I bought a grey one. Yours is lovely.

WANT that envelope clutch!!

This is so random, but did you ever have a 1950s or 60s dressing phase? I say that because your face looks like pictures from those eras...just very pretty and classic!

I love how often you wear your blazers! Such great inspiration! I have quite a few myself but don't always know how to switch it up.

I absolutely need some more suits for work. I love your look. The blazer is such a great color. I like when blazers differ in color from pants.

Love this outfit, I can see why you love the blazer so much, it is pretty spectacular. I've had my eye on those satchels (I think they also have them in red and some other color I forgot) for awhile but I kept putting it back - suffice to say, great satchel.

Nnenna said...

I love your new satchel and I LOVE those wedge booties in your polyvore set! And as always, you rock the blazer :D
