Business in the Front….

Hope you guys and gals are having a great Friday! I decided to change my look a bit today. In fact, I’m not sure how I could have changed it more as I slicked back my hair, wore pants (I don’t do that a lot!), didn’t wear a necklace and forgot my engagement ring (by accident!). 

So, today’s look is alll…”Business in the front….but party in the back”. Actually…the party in the back I’m referring to is that I’ve lost the ombre and went back to my original red hair. Or as original as a box of Revlon hair color could make it. It’s still a bit brighter than my original hair color…but I like that too. 

This suit is one of my faves – always garners a lot of compliments…especially from men. Guess they appreciate a good suit! I like that it’s understated and simple but crisp.

Why does one feel just a bit more self-important when buttoning up a suit jacket? I feel a little bit more “in charge” in this suit. Often when I wear my normal attire (think something pink, frilly or girly) I feel a little bit vulnerable. This suit is like a piece of armor. I’m a powerhouse…and I’m coming your way. 

The suit is by JCREW and even though I purchased it a few years ago, I highly recommend their current line of suits and business wear. Their stretch wool suits are particularly fine.  Check them out here

 What I’m Wearing:

  • Suit: JCREW
  • Button up Shirt: Banana Republic
  • Heels: Kate Spade
  • Bag: Kate Spade
  • Scarf accent: Cejon
  • Sunnies: Franco Sarto 

Hope you have a great weekend! Xoxo..Cortneybre…
