This month’s outfit inspiration is an adorable 1940’s suit with featuring very ladylike accessories. The only part of the look that made me scratch my head was the choice to use loafers as the shoes. I don’t know…I love the clean look of heels with a suit…but I guess that’s just me.
Finding a short sleeve suit jacket is rather a tall order these days, so I was very happy to have found one at a reasonable price. Suits are a fantastic investment as they can be worn together or as separates, and finding a jacket that can carry over into the warmer months is even better. This particular look would be perfect for a variety of functions, although I don’t think my hat choice is very flexible…but it certainly does look great!
So let’s take a look at the original 1940’s inspiration:
Fresh, youthful, and a great choice for the upcoming summer, this outfit is a gem!
