Gorgeous Power Suit!

I spotted this lovely lady at the Post Office and the first thing I noticed about her outfit was, well....her gorgeous suit! It was a plain tan suit, but so well cut! I love how she wore semi-dressy sandals with the suit - is it only in the south where you can get away with this?

My first instinct was to add some color to this suit through accessories, but there's something to be said for keeping all neutrals in an outfit. I'd like to see this suit paired with a darker-toned necklace, like my "The Bronze Age Necklace," to pull the deep brown from her shoes upward to add balance. This multi-strand necklace would fit perfectly in the round neckline of her top. The necklace is simple, but definitely a statement-maker! Click image to right or here for details.

The necklace has such an earthy feel to it! Methinks a high-heeled shoe (open or closed) would look good with this neat suit. Her sandals are a tad bit flat...but hey, if she can carry it off well, suits me! And yes....seems like life's more laidback down south!!!

Thanks sunshinealways! I think her sandals actually did have a bit of a heel...I didn't get a good picture of them...doh! I agree though, high-heeled shoes would be super cute too!
