Styling a Striped Suit!!πŸ™ŒπŸ˜»πŸ™€πŸ₯°

Love A Long Jacket With A Short Skirt!

I’ve always loved the look of a long slouchy jacket over a short skirt … I think it’s fun, youthful and sexy.

Just because we get older doesn’t mean we have to lose our sex appeal or stop feeling sexy.

These last few weeks I haven’t felt up to dressing up too often and certainly haven’t felt terribly sexy, although fortunately I’m coming out of that malaise!

I wore this suit for a date night last Saturday night where I pushed myself to get out and about to our favourite restaurant in the little beachside town of Merimbula.

The skirt is a high waisted paper-bag shape and I love the button front and pockets – although it’s a lot shorter than I’d normally wear but I felt quite comfortable in it – life’s too short to worry about such things!!

I just wore a simple white tank under the slouchy jacket.

Here’s a pic of the skirt just with a white blouse:

Stripes And Linen…

Linen is a beautiful spring/summer fabric that is perfect for the long hot days we will soon be experiencing in Australia and it’s also perfect in a sweet neutral grey and white stripe.

The big black buttons and the waist tie are a welcome addition, along with the black heels, fishnets, double-breasted jacket and the wide belt for my Saturday night look – although the jacket looks pretty fabby just open.

All Belted Up!

So now it’s back to the suit together…

Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web – I’d love to hear your thoughts on getting your sexy back!

      Oh thank you, Laurie – it’s definitely your colour too!! I know it’s a simple suit but i think I will get lots of wear out of both pieces. Thank you for your kind comment!

    I love your attitude Donna, very refreshing! The skirt and jacket look wonderful together and also with the other items. The hosiery is an inspired choice too. Thanks for joining #WowOnWednesday.

    Donna, this suit is amazing! I love it with the wide black belt over the jacket. So cool. But then the skirt alone with a white blouse is super chic. And the jacket worn with distressed jeans is so very edgy! What fun pieces with so much versatility. And you are killing it in these sexy fishnets! I am so glad that you got out and about a bit as well. Thanks for linking up.
