It’s the final piece of the puzzle! Sorry it took so long to post the whole thing. If you switch the jeans for the skirt, this is what I wore to a recent conference, but, to tell you the truth, I kind of hate suits. I think it’s some sort of deep-seated Ann Taylor/J. Crew/interview-related association I have with them. But in beige, it is only a muted form of evil, so I can stomach it. Anyway, long story short, I like this blazer with jeans.
I have had this wonderful brooch sitting in my jewelry box for much too long. I found it at a flea market way back in the springtime. No excuses for not wearing it sooner.
