Suit Up

I've had getting a new suit or two somewhere on my list for awhile now, enough that it was one of my goals for the year.  So now I can cross that one off!  I really lucked out at the Elie Tahari Outlet last week.  I found this dark pin-stripe suit and another tan suit, plus nice silk blouses and a white power dress.  I love the faux-leather accents on this suit and the longer length of the blazer.  It was nice to add some quality work pieces to my closet.  Now I gotta go through and spring-clean my closet to make more room!  Anyone have any experience with Thred Up?  I've seen a lot of people using it on Instagram, so I've been thinking of trying it out.  Let me know in the comments if you have used it!

Outfit Details:
Jacket:  T Tahari Carina Jacket (sold out - but there were plenty up at the outlet!)
Shoes:  Ann Taylor Factory (similar at Ann Taylor)
Bag:  Michael Kors Tote, Macy's
Jewelry:  Pearl necklace & earrings, gift (similar, steal)
Sunglasses:  Tory Burch

I am so excited to be featured today on Ada's Spring Must Have series with Amy Ann of The Real Arnolds!  Check it out on my Ada's blog: Elegance and Mommyhood.


  1. What a great professional look! Love that blazer! So cute!

  2. Katie, you can never beat a Black Pant Suit worn with a White Blouse & Classic Black Pumps. It is always such a Great Classy Work Look. You look Powerful and Sexy!! I wore my "Non Suit" Suit the other day (did you see it?) which made me felt Powerful and polished, as well. =)

    Sorry I posted kind of late, but here is the post where I featured your look today (linked below). Please make sure you include a link back to me, when you post tomorrow. Thanks.

    Come check it out, Ada. =)

    1. Thanks Ada! I love the post and have linked it above (since I won't have a post up tomorrow). Going to check that post now! :-)

  3. Looks great!! I have such a hard time finding good suits for work! I feel like they just aren't made for women!! Loving the pinstripe :)

  4. So happy to have found you through Ada's and my spring must haves. Love the dress she featured! You found a great suit. Those will be pieces you can mix and match forever.

    xo, Amy Ann
