All Suited Up

Jacket: c/o Dorothy Perkins, sold out; Blouse: J.Crew; Shorts: c/o Dorothy Perkins and ON SALE!; Tights: Madewell, old (Similar ones at Target!); Shoes; Zara, old (The ShoeMint “Candy” pair is literally almost identical!); Bag: Michael Kors; Fedora: Miss Selfridge, old (Similar at ShopBop)

Who remembers this ridiculous rant on “Most Eligible Dallas”about my perfect man?

While I have tweaked my list to some degree over the past 18 months, there is still one thing on that list that really gets me going: A MAN IN A SUIT.

Now that doesn’t mean a man needs to wear a suit everyday (because honestly I really kindof love a man in a beat up leather bomber jacket and a vintage tee and boots, too!) but you will definitely gain some points in my book if you can clean up nicely.

So this week I took a cue from my imaginary dream man and put on my version of a power suit…..complete with elbow patches (because who doesn’t love those?!) and added a touch of my favorite color this season, oxblood.

What’s yalls favorite look to wear inspired by the boys?

    Court, I love you but this red with this suit is awful. Too much oxblood in one spot. Maybe go neutral on the boots or tights.
