If you've followed my Instastory this week you may know that I attended a wedding this weekend. I shared some of my favorite wedding dresses with everyone, but what I didn't share was my love for jumpsuits and pants. I think that sometimes dressing up pants is so overlooked. When most women think of occasions they immediately think "I need a dress," and I understand that. In my day to day life I don't wear dresses, so when I get to escape the workout clothes it's nice to have on a dress, but then I blend in with everyone else.
When I saw this two piece suit the color made me drool. Okay, maybe not literally, but definitely left my mouth open. I was so intrigued and knew right away that I wanted to wear this at some point. I bought it without actually having an event in mind. Sometimes there are pieces that you just need to buy and hold on to. Once it arrived in the mail the fit wasn't perfect. I am 5"1, so the blazer kind of consumed my frame. I decided that since I loved it so much, it was worth it to pay for the alterations. I had the sleeves trimmed, waist taken in, and length of the blazer shortened. Was it worth it? Absolutely! As I have said before, if they fit is off, the look is off. I also knew that I didn't want to just wear a black sandal; I needed something more. When I found these pumps I thought, "YES." Color on top of color is exactly what would complete this look. I also made sure the heels were a height that I could walk in because waddling is never in style. Will I wear this again? Absolutely! I don't buy things to wear once. I love a wardrobe remix. I hope that you stay tuned to my Instagram and read my blog posts so that you can see how I wear the outfit next time. But you know what, it's so cool there may not be a remix needed.
