Now that I’ve found a skirt that matches my blue suit jacket, I’ve developed an overwhelming desire to wear it with everything. So, uh, you might be seeing a lot of this suit around the blog in the coming weeks. Sorrynotsorry.

We had a bit of mild weather at the end of January that put me in a premature spring mood, so I decided to pair my royal blue suit with green accessories (and a frog pin!) in hopes of channeling some warmer-weather vibes. Of course, the weather is still absolutely frigid… so long underwear, opaque tights, and an overcoat are all indispensable.

I don’t have much else to say about this, aside from feeling like I’m still not wearing enough long underwear… it will be spring soon enough, it will be spring soon enough, it will…
