Well Suited





top: beneton (old, loving this one)// jacket: cabi (similar here)// shorts: fab'rik (similar here)// shoes: marc by marc jacobs (old, similar here)// sunnies: prada (available here)

I don't know what it is about a short suit that makes me feel so ladylike and put together yet edgy at the same time.... but dang if I don't lurve the outcome. I love finding pieces in my closet that can make up a short suit because separates are a mom's best friend. Thank you for all of the best wishes on date night, Sam and I had a wonderful weekend doing "couple" things like breakfast at our favorite cafe....watching a movie together (only 1 of us fell asleep!) and drinking on our back deck. PS doodle had an amazing weekend at his grandparents house helping them with their garden :)

  9. OMG your shirt!!!!! It's perfection. I didn't even know they had Beneton here in the US. And are those jelly sandals you're wearing? Love it, they had a certain charm to an otherwise lady like ensemble.
