outfit post: black blazer, purple floral pencil skirt, black pumps

Inspiration - Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark

Day 3 of Princess Week! I'm going to try to recreate Princess Mary's fantastic professional & casual outfits for the next seven days. So fun! (See all PW posts here.)

It was quite the squeeze to get this jacket buttoned. I am still two sizes bigger in my chest from nursing/extra weight which made the jacket feel like a corset once it was buttoned up. But I actually liked wearing this look once I opened the jacket, removed the belt and could reasonably breathe again.

I also really liked wearing a non-matched suit jacket and pencil skirt.  I've worn this skirt a ton of times to work (love the fall colors in the print) but it's always been with sweaters or cardigans.
