when monday morning rolls around there are two things i need to jump-start my day: a cup of coffee, and a killer outfit. this white linen suiting combo does just the trick for a chic nine-to-five look. it’s crisp and clean with just enough pop coming from the black piping. the skirt is the perfect length (hey, designers, please make more in this length) and i love the 3/4 sleeves on the jacket which is office appropriate, and fun. i brought in a little pattern with my sweater, but overall this outfit is simplicity in motion. a pair of suede pumps polishes off the casual chic look. oh, let’s not forget a little bling on the arm: pearls and gold link bracelets. as for the coffee, today i have to thank my local coffee shop for giving me just the right kick to get me going.
