Back to Work

August 20, 2018

I am hitting the ground running this week since, you guessed it, I am already back at work today even though I just got back from Europe last night!

Since I’m back in Court today, it seemed only fitting to share a classic wear to work outfit as my first post back – so today I am sharing a stylish women’s pant suit.

Blazer // Pants // Camisole // Gucci Belt // Heels // Handbag

 

As any woman who has to wear a suit knows, it is not easy finding a suit that is flattering on a woman’s body, is comfortable, and is chic. This suit meets all those criteria and is the perfect addition to your closet if you work in the corporate world.

It’s also quite reasonably priced, making it an excellent suit for all you amazing women starting off in your careers (… I’m looking at you law school 1L’s! Only a couple more weeks until law school starts for the year!)

The reason I think this suit is such a stylish women’s pant suit is the cut. The pants are slim fit through the hips and thighs but do have a more classic boot cut shape; perfect for a more traditional or conservative office environment.

I also love the three button blazer. I’ve noticed the trend in recent years towards one button blazers for women, but there is nothing like a well-fit three button blazer when it comes to creating a flattering line in a women’s suit.

 

I’m not wearing my actual every day work purse in these photos (that would be this bag, which I swear by) but that’s because I had to show you this gorgeous black cross body bag I received when I was in Los Angeles in July! This is my first piece from the Onna Ehrlich brand, and I am thrilled with the quality. I highly recommend this brand.

Before I finish this post I wanted to take about where these photos were taken/where I actually wore this outfit!

… Any guesses as to where these are taken?!

It’s the Supreme Court of Croatia!!! If you followed my Instagram stories of my travels you probably saw that while I’m Zagreb I couldn’t resist going to check out the Croatian Supreme Court.

As a true law nerd, I insist on going to the courthouses in every country I travel to, and this was no exception. It was really interesting to see the lawyers there and get a glimpse into life as a lawyer in Zagreb. (And of course to do so I wanted to look my best, so I had to wear this stylish women’s pant suit!)

I’ll be posting recaps of my travels here on the blog later in the week, so come back for that if you want to see more of what I did in Croatia and Montenegro!

  1. That’s a stunning suit!! Perfect for court – however, I could see myself wearing it separately with more casual pieces, like lightweight knitwear and cropped trousers! xx Maria

      Thank you Maria! And totally! I plan on wearing the blazer in the fall on casual friday with dark jeans, a white tee and black over the knee boots!

      Isn’t it so frustrating!? I don’t know why the fashion industry can’t get with the program and make suits that are flattering for women.
      And thank you so much!

  4. Love this suit! And croatia is up there on my list to visit.

      Thanks Shira! And ahh it is definitely worth it. We went to Zagreb, Split, Hvar and Dubrovnik and I can’t recommend it enough. The cities are so different from one another and so beautiful! It makes for a great vacation.

  5. Oh if I ever need a suit I’ll definitely be getting this one! I love that you visit the court houses in other countries, you look great in this suit!

    • Lee says:

      It’s definitely a great one! If you ever just want a cute blazer to dress up a pair of jeans, the blazer is great for that as well.
      And haha thank you! Its such a weird thing that I love to do, but I find it SO interesting!

  6. Looking so chic in this suit!
