Check Mate!

Milly is a designer that I have adored for a very long time.  I typically would go to a rack or pick out a dress in a magazine and more times than not, it was Milly.  Imagine my surprise when I walked over to the rack (actually, I ran- not gonna lie) and pulled out this suit only to find it was Milly too.  I am the last person you’d find choosing to wear a matched suit, but this is a real gem and very versatile.  It is not stuffy at all yet can be worn for business or pleasure.  The crisp navy and cream bold check is so inviting and the not too serious style makes it perfect. I love the big navy buttons that close the double breasted suit jacket and the cuffed hem on the shorts are a playful detail. This suit can be worn with a t-shirt or a silk blouse underneath. I went with an alternate choice that worked just as well as either of the first two options…..no shirt. This is a great transitional ensemble and I’m thinking it could even be worn with my navy suede over the knee boots, think Pretty Woman:) I love that movie!! I chose a sophisticated low navy pump with a bow as I was working in the city all day and wanted my feet to survive.  Shoe options are limitless with this suit. This one of those go to pieces that will work for a number of occasions.  It might be the jacket that you need, maybe the shorts or the pulled together look of a suit, no matter what, this will be called upon.  xo B

Elegance is a question of one’s personality more than one’s clothing.
