I wanted to purchase a skirt suit for my new job for those days when I'm in more "official" meetings with the Board, government officials, etc. so I turned to Nygard, a Canadian brand that has always produced good quality suits in various fabrications and styles and to put the cherry on top, they come in petite sizes as well.
I found this black blazer and skirt suit on Boxing Day and it fit my needs perfectly - they produce new suits every year with tweaks to represent the current trends. This blazer for example is a bit longer, lower single button stance and narrower lapels.
For the top underneath the blazer, I chose the white silk blend v-neck cross body hi-low hem top my DS gave me for Christmas. I had been looking for a slouchy white tee for some time and this was perfect.
And then to add a bit of Shannon style, I added my large polka dot hose for a bit of whimsy, my black patent booties and my oversized animal print clutch. My silver wedding band and a large gun metal cuff, along with my signature red lip, complete the look.
Unfortunately I don't think this photographed as well as it looks IRL - oh well. So what do you think? Corporate without being stuffy? As always, comments/suggestions welcome.
BTW I'm in meetings most of the day so may not be able to come back and read your comments until much later.
Clutch: XOXO (thrifted)
