Suit Up

Pin It

With just a few more days to go in my Winter 30 for 30, I decided to break out one of the two suits I included in my 30 items and suit up.

I haven't been wearing suits much lately because, let's face it, when I am faced with the choice of wearing either bright colors and fun skirts or a plain ol' suit, especially during winter which tends to be gloomier than other seasons, bright colors and skirts win out every time. I also don't own as many suits as I used to, which makes suiting up a bit difficult.

So, my goal when I actually choose to wear a suit, especially in places like DC where suiting up is quite common, is to also incorporate a few pieces that help me break out of the mold of other suit wearers, while still looking professional.

I think I did alright today. What tips do you have for suiting up?

Finally, for all of the How I Met Your Mother watchers out there, Enjoy!
