I recently went a month without working. That may sound like a dream to many people, but to be honest, it was boring as hell! When I got the call to start work in a very corporate environment I was stoked!
It said in the description of the role to wear “corporate attire (preferably matching suit)”, so I was super excited to rock this charcoal pant suit. I purchased this Tokito City suit a long time ago on sale at Myer. I’ve worn the jacket a few times, but the pants sat in my sewing pile with the hem pinned up for WAY too long. When I recently used some of my spare time to finish all my half done sewing projects I pulled them out and tried them on. Turns out all I needed was a higher heel to save me from the painful task of hand sewing a hem.
I felt super boss walking in on my first day, despite being literally the bottom of the corporate food chain. I find young women, in particular, tend to steer clear of a full matching suit these days. I’m one of them most of the time. Being able to mix and match pieces allows for a greater number of outfit options and more opportunity to make your outfit uniquely you. But there is something incredibly satisfying about the classic chic-ness. Add a killer pair of pointed pumps and a complimentary black shirt and it’s time to own the office.
