Remember I told you about the infamous “going away suit?” Well, this skirt was a piece of said suit. Try to imagine a perfectly-tailored little jacket on top and you’ve got the full ensemble. At some point I plan to wear that jacket… Crap, I need to get on that before summer ends…

Totally lovely almost neutrals. The going away suit is exactly the sort of thing my mother would also champion, and I'd look at her half-blankly, half-annoyed. When I was a child she made me wear bloomers. Oh yes.

I love how you've styled the blouse, and the lace cammi is perfect with it.

I imagine the jacket to the suit is adorable, you've only got a few weeks left for it!

You are so lovely as usual! My husband leaning over my shoulder said: "That's a cool shirt." Just in case you wanted to know what he thinks. 😉 I wonder if I am the only one who's husband occasionally reads the blogs on her blog roll?

Anyway, I also really love the way you tied the shirt too! And I MUST see this suit all together!

I really love this look! The colors are just perfect, and it's great how you've tied the blouse to make it fitted rather than frumpy with your longer skirt. Great silhouette!

Such a pretty outfit. That blouse goes so well with the skirt. You should post a picture of the whole suit just for postings sake. 🙂
