What, like its hard?

I never thought in a million years I would wear a Barbie/Elle Woods pink suit, but I gotta say thank goodness for evolving. I would have missed out on this fabulous piece. Suits are most definitely my favorite for work, they are easy to put together, look professional, and are mostly very flattering. I purchased this suit from Target, -their new line, A New Day. I cannot rave about Target lines enough, they are affordable and best of all the quality is so amazing for the price point!

This linen blend is perfect for the hot weather that is already here in North Carolina. I love that I can make this look causal if I wear the pants with a white or black tee and maybe some comfy sneakers. I can also wear the blazer over a black camisole and pair it with dark denim and heels – so versatile! Definitely see my self living in this for the next couple of months!

Pants (they are a relaxed fit so size down – I did small!)

Blazer

I wore a bodysuit under my blazer, which I purchased from h&m years ago. Bag is ElizebethandJames, heels are Valentino.

How would you wear this suit?

and of course have to mention my amazing photographer/friend! Who truly makes photoshoots so much fun. PorshiaHernandezPhotography

mad for plaid.

Plaid is everywhere. On the streets of Milan, Paris, New York – and even my office. I am absolutely thrilled about plaid making a comeback to fashion. Forget just a plaid jacket, from matching sets – in true Cher Horowitz fashion- to even plaid shoes. I am here for it. I am a sucker for mod styled fashion. If I could live in any era it would most definitely be the 60’s, I have Mad Men to thank for that.

My plaid suit from Target’s new line “A New Day” (my new OBSESSION by the way)  is so comfy and it seriously takes out all the stress in the morning when I know I have a long day of work ahead of me, full of meetings, being out and about in the community, and have dinner plans later. It is extremely versatile, it takes me through the day.

So I bought my suit back in the Summer, early Fall – and ya girl has dropped some pounds – time to get it tailored! I didn’t even realize till I had my photo shoot – so much stress from work and life in general – but a good reminder you never get rid of such a classic piece! You must tailor it to you, every step of the way.

I let the suit do the talking, so I keep it simple with an off-white shirt and simple black sling-backs. The focus should always be YOU. Remember clothes don’t wear you, you wear the clothes – Ruby always taught me that as a kid and it is a very important fashion rule I do not forget. Clothes should compliment you and your structure, your personality, and you should always feel comfortable and confident in the clothes. If you don’t then the clothes ultimately wear you.

Can’t wait to add more plaid pieces to my wardrobe! How do you guys wear plaid?
