mix and match suiting:: part one.

while shopping do you ever fall head over heels in love with a pattern, but the pieces come in a sad little set?  here's a quick tip::  for interest, and an easy way to stretch your dollar… break the pieces up!  i snagged this dark floral tulip suit at a local vintage shop {for only $14},  separated the pieces, and styled two totally different looks for some inspiration to get you started.  

floral suit jacket, vintage via cheap thrills // waxed denim, zara {as seen here} // round etched sunglasses, alexander mcQueen {as seen here} // on lips, mac 'ruby woo' {as seen here} // gold chain necklace {as seen here} + bangles, vintage via maes // string cuff, dahlia lynn {as seen here} // photos by keely yount

i hope this was helpful!  please stay tuned for an eclectic second outfit, utilizing the skirt {plus an i heart nyc t-shirt}. . .   xx

yours truly-


  1. Now that is a print! Looks fantastic though, not old frumpy lady.

  2. Wow this is such a cute look. I can NEVER find florals like this so I'm super jealous!!

  3. Could you be any cuter. Need to get you some more cuffs since you like the little one so much:) miss you!!

  4. I love that print! You pull it off sooooo well! Can't wait to see the outfit with the other piece : )


  5. Thank you, guys!! {I'm blushing}
