Last Year’s Suit

For the working woman, it can be boring wearing the same old suit to work year after year.  But if you’re like me, and like to shop, you know how to find different accessories to update the look of your suit. Nowadays a suit is not a required look for most offices, so it is nice to buy a full suit but you don’t always have to wear the pieces together.

Whether you purchase a pant suit or a skirt suit remember to launder the pieces at the same time even if you didn’t wear them together or one piece will fade more than the other.

There are so many new styles and colors of suits as well. You don’t have to stick to the simple black and blue any longer.  Colorful suits are in style depending on where you work and the time of the year.  A pink suit  may not be appropriate for all office settings.

Also, not all suits are dressy.  There are casual suits, so don’t forgot those casual Fridays or those offices where the attire is business casual.  A cute khaki suit just might fit the bill.

How do I update last year’s suit?

  1. Wearing the latest style and color top or shirt with suit.
  2. Adding the latest accessories e.g, purse, scarf, shoes.
  3. Change the buttons for something more “today”.
  4. Change the Length of the skirt, if possible.
  5. Change the length of the jacket, if possible.

Out on The Town!

My husband and I have always enjoyed our date nights. Since our four girls were little we’ve found that extra time to spend alone and just enjoy each other’s company.  Sometimes it’s a dinner and a movie and other times it might be going out for ice cream and taking a long ride.  It’s not always easy to find that extra time, but it is so worth it, especially when you have little ones.

You have to find a date on the calendar that you think might work, look for a baby sitter, negotiate the rate and DECIDE WHAT TO WEAR.  Yes, I put those words in all caps, because sometimes as women we forget when we go on a date with our husbands or boyfriends that we can dress up a little.  We don’t have to go overboard, but dressing to impress your loved one and to boost your self esteem is a great idea.

You can leave the large baby bags at home, you don’t have to carry a handbag with everyone else’s stuff in it, whether large or small, and you don’t have to wear your everyday lounge around the house clothing. If you are a stay at home Mom, you may not dress up everyday, so this gives  you a great opportunity to show off your true style.

Why not wear your favorite jeans and t-shirt, but dress it up a little with some sexy heels and a cute jacket or scarf. You can also wear your go-to Summer dress with sandals or your go-to Winter dress with boots and a trendy handbag.

Don’t forget about the accessories.  They are just as important as the outfit.  If you don’t wear earrings often during the week, change it up for your date night and add a simple pair of studs or hoops.  If you’re like me and love to wear jewelry on a regular basis, just change it up a bit or wear less to show a simpler look.

Of course, your attire will depend on where you’re going on your date night, but just remember to look your best. Make this a night or day to feel special.  Not that you don’t feel special already, but think of it as a time to impress your significant other and increase your self-esteem.

If you’re going out for pizza, you don’t have to wear your little black dress with pearls and heels. You may get a few stares at the restaurant.  Dress for the occasion.  Flats can be just as cute as heels.  There are lots of different styles of flats that are trendy today.  Some with embellishments and some not.

Tennis shoes can also be worn on your date night as long as they are not the ones you wear to work in your garden.  They should be clean and appropriate for your outfit and appropriate for your destination.

Maxi dresses are great for date nights as well, as they are very comfortable and forgiving depending on the style.  Remember to dress for your body type and stick to your style.  Don’t try to be someone else.  Dress to be the best “you” that you can be.
