Suited Up!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day weekend! I settled with a staycation after my vacation plans were cancelled. Even though I wasnt out of town, I still acted like I was! With Memorial Day being the unofficial beginning of Summer, I was all about COLOR. I'm shocked that I'm starting to gravitate to colors when browsing around because I basically live in black clothing. Experimenting with colors should be fun this season and there was no better way to start things off than with a hot pink suit! 

My wardrobe has always had a subtle masculine influence. I love tailored pants, oxfords, double breasted blazers etc. I practically pounced on this suit! I bought this vintage 3 piece suit (skirt not pictured) 4 years ago for $17. I stopped by Zara and saw the same look for $250! It goes down as the best thrifted item I've ever found EVER. When I stepped out with it on I was nervous because I was sticking out like a sore thumb. You don't see a hot pink suit every day! This suit is a great example of statement pieces that do the talking. I can probably only wear it once a year. I kept the colors coming with a multi-colored pinstriped shirt dress (worn as a top) with a mini leather tote from ALDO. 

This look was a WIN!
