Blue Monday

Posted By on Mon, Mar 8, 2010 at 8:30 AM

One of the best things about buying suits is that you don't *have* to wear both pieces together. It's like getting three outfits out of one. (provided there are other clothes in your wardrobe, of course!)

In this picture, Elizabeth is wearing a dark blue sweater from Old Navy, with patterned tights, and a cute little skirt that is actually half of a suit.

During her tenure as interim director for UrbanArt, she says she went on a suit buying spree. She had to attend a lot of meetings at the time, and made a rule that she would never attend a meeting at City Hall without wearing a suit.

"I believe people not in suits are overlooked in those situations," she says.

But that left Elizabeth with a closet full of suits.

"For everyday wear, I found the idea of them better than the reality. It's just too matchy-matchy," she says. "I like pairing the jackets with jeans or other skirts, and the skirts with every top I own."

I have to say, none of my skirt suits are this cute, but at least it gives the rest of us (or, just me) something to aim for.
