A few weeks ago I had a major (to me) networking event and obviously I thought about what I was going to wear, then inspiration hit – a plaid suit. When I bought the matching blazer for my plaid pants wearing a plaid suit didn’t seem like a big deal, interesting but not a rebel move. I mean, it wasn’t a 70s polyester plaid suit. During the event lots of people (women really) started coming up to me and talking about it and how I was gutsy and good for me for wearing a plaid suit. It’s enough to make a girl feel fantastic of self conscious. I guess it just depends what kind of day you’re having. I was having a good day so I took all the comments as compliments.

      That’s how I felt when I saw the pictures…after I already wore it. It’s fun and life can be long not to have some fun!

    I love it. Definitely a bold choice but I love it. I think the more we push ourselves the more we can be confident in outfits like this instead of self conscious 🙂

    I think plaid is the best print to wear to a formal occasion like meetings and work. It’s chic and presentable. Just like you =)
