Another gorgeous sunny day calls for another summer work day outfit for you guys. I have been on a skirt suit kick lately (in case you missed it – this 80’s inspired pink suit is my new obsession) and this linen striped skirt suit caught my eye as soon as I saw it.
What’s really great about this suit, which for the record is just as easy to style as separates, is the linen fabric! Linen is perfect for the spring/summer heat and as an added bonus it doesn’t wrinkle easily (which is odd since most linen does. I think the particular thick blend of linen used in this suit is just more wrinkle resistant!)
In addition to being a great suit to beat the summer heat, the striped skirt suit is also right on trend with it’s wrap skirt style waist. The tie is made to be worn at the side – which looks great when the skirt is worn alone. To have it sit nicely under the blazer though, I tied the bow in the front and like it just as much worn that way.
To finish up this outfit I went with just a plain navy tee shirt (one of my favorite basics under a suit) and some navy suede heels. My navy suede heels are from last season Boden, so I’ve linked up some similar pairs below since my exact ones are no longer available. Best part – both pairs I’ve linked up are currently on sale!
I shot these photos in one of my favorite neighbourhood’s in Vancouver; gastown. The primary courthouse that I work at is in this neighbourhood so I’m lucky enough to spend a lot of time here.. even if it is just running out for coffee breaks! Haha which reminds me- this striped skirt suit definitely passes my ‘can you really wear it all day’ test as I have definitely done some treks from the courthouse to two of my favorite coffee shops in this outfit!
I’ve been thinking of doing a blog post on my favorite spots here in Vancouver. Would you guys be interested in that? And, if so, would you be most interested in: 1) the best coffee shops 2) my favorite local boutiques, 3) the best restaurants or 4) must-do activities in Vancouver? Let me know in the comments below!
