Inspiration - Kate Middleton
I love love love Kate Middleton. She does such a wonderful job of keeping her outfits classic and appropriate but still youthful and chic for all the formal functions she goes to. I know if I had the world of designers at my fingertips I would likely wander down some ugly fashion roads.
Here is my take on her dress & suit jacket combo. I love it! I bought this jacket as part of full suit combo of pants, skirt & jacket from Ann Taylor to go to the career fair my junior year of college twelve years (how can it be that long!?!) ago. I have found lots of opportunities to re-wear the pants & skirt separately but I've never worn the jacket on its own before. This outfit makes me happy!
