New black suit by Ann Taylor

Apologies for the unexpected lack of posts this week.  My husband is out of town and I've had an incredibly busy week at work and absolutely no time for anything else except taking care of the kids.  My mom has been a huge help but still...to all the single moms out there, you have my utmost respect.  It is VERY difficult to parent alone.  I'm completely exhausted and it's only Wednesday.

I had a very important day at work so I wore my new suit that I bought for a steal at Ann Taylor.  The jacket and skirt were a total of about $95, which I think is fantastic for a tropical weight wool suit I can wear for all but the hottest of seasons.  The jacket has the slightest peplum flair in the back, a little detail that I love.

I find that as much as I love color, when I'm wearing a full-on suit it has to be black, gray or navy...any other color and I'm feeling more Golden Girl than Working Girl.  Is that just me? 

Sorry for the blurry picture.  It was taken at 6:30 AM by my 7 year old son.   Now we're all off to bed.  Thanks for reading!

  1. Oooh you look fantastic in that suit! And for under 100 - that's a steal!

    I always think black, grey, and navy are the best when it comes to looking positively polished in the work place.

    1. I agree with you regarding suit color. I'm usually not a fan of too much black...but in a suit...yes.

    1. Thanks! It was definitely a steal, especially considering that the jacket alone was originally $198!
