WIW: Casual Suit-ish

Yesterday I wore a fairly corporate type suit and today is the casual spin-off of that type of look.

I started today's outfit with my black skinnies to which I added a black leather belt and then semi-tucked a cobalt blue tee. I then added as my third piece a more masculine style, longer pinstripe black blazer. Footwear choice was my Doc Marcie boots. For accessories I went with my oversized animal print clutch, black/white watch and a black cocktail ring.

What do you think? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Blazer: George (thrifted)
Tee: Joe Fresh (thrifted)
Skinnies: Attitude by Jay Manuel
Belt: Danier Leather
Boots: Doc Martens
Clutch: XOXO (thrifted)

    Well, you know I'm going to love the cobalt!  Thumbs up for the legline in this outfit -- the strong, edgy boots with a bit of lift and the expert fit of the skinnies -- outlining the leg without squeezing it!

    Nice and casual with some edge.

    Cobalt is your color! You look great. The jacket and tee are really amazing thrifting finds. Your clutch is To-Die-For!

    Looks terrific to me. In fact, this is my uniform for "dressier" days! Ha!!

    Okay, you pull off this look to perfection!  Coach me :)  

    (Sometime today I'll post yesterday's business casual attempt, which wasn't so great)

    Very sleek - love it!!

    I really like you in those skinnies, and with the suit jacket -- very chic!  Rae wore an outfit similar today and I think this is a very under-rated outfit formula.   It just looks really "smart" to me, to use one of my grandmothers old phrases.

    The cobalt adds a nice pop of color, and I love those boots!
