outfit post: citron green sweater, black suit jacket, grey pencil skirt, black pumps


Inspiration - Splendid Net-a-Porter

I liked this inspiration photo because of the unexpected pop of fun citron in the middle of neutral blacks & greys. I have a hard time figuring out how to break up my suit set pieces (I own two suits - one grey and one black) to mix and match. I'm fine with wearing the bottoms with lots of other stuff but I struggle figuring out how to pair the jackets with anything but the suit they came with. So I liked that this inspiration let me mix my black jacket & grey skirt.

On Sunday I travel to DC for two weeks for work. Looking at outfits over this past week I've already started dressing like I'm headed into a client office. I'm starting to brainstorm what to pack for being onsite at a pretty formal client office - it's going to be quite a step up from my normal very casual office wear. I'll post what I end up wearing over the next two weeks.

Also working on fun surprise to post during the two weeks.... ONE SUITCASE EUROPE!! Yay!

  1. There are a lot of citron-colored pieces in stores these days, and I've always struggled with how to wear that color. This is a great way to tone it down with some neutrals!

    1. Yeah - I love the color of this shirt but don't wear it a ton because it's tricky...
