One of the great things about suits is that they are so versatile! So, here's my 40s "suit" another way.
I actually made this skirt to wear with my Wearing History Ruthie blouse. I have a lot of navy blue neutrals in the bottoms half of my wardrobe. So I needed something to wear with a blue top!
And I guess blue could go with anything, but it looks awesome with red.
I'm finding that layers in Florida are key. Cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon. Cold in the shadows but warm in the sun. Warm outside but frigidly air conditioned inside.
I've actually been wearing my Ruthie blouse a lot since I got it. It is so comfortable! Lauren really hit it out of the park with the fabric choice here. So soft!
It's blousey yet still fitted enough to show off a waist. Plus I can move in the sleeves!
It's a blouse you can live in. There are some things in my closet that I'll wear for photos or a specific outing but then want to take of and put on comfy clothes when I get home. Not with this blouse.
On the other had, it looks so classic! Pair it with pearls and a cute shoe and I can wear it to work. It's just an amazing basic for my wardrobe.
I hope there are other colors of this blouse available in the future because I would totally by another (or three!).
Do you have a favorite basic piece in your wardrobe?
