Women's Suits for Valentine's Day

Even though Valentine's Day is a made-up Hallmark holiday, I will never pass up an opportunity to dress to a theme. I was an RTR member last Valentine's Day, and also had actual things to do last year since we weren't locked in our homes.  This year, since we aren't going anywhere, I have tried to stop myself from buying new outfits just for Valentine's day.  I've only partially succeeded.  My excuses? I can sell these pieces later or wear them another time.  As a lady lawyer, I love suits, and per my love of themes, I LOVE a novelty suit. Valentine's day is a perfect excuse to break out one of my many novelty suits, especially the pink ones! 


Plaid Heart Suit: Halogen x Atlantic Pacific | Earrings: BaubleBar | Purse: Tory Burch Small Radziwill




I have loved this Halogen x Atlantic Pacific plaid heart suit set since I saw @lombardandfifth wearing it on election day.  I still like it, but on me, something just doesn't feel right.  I don't know if it's the quality or the fit of the blazer, but I don't think I'm going to keep it.  The pants, I actually love, but I don't need statement pants in this time of dressing from the waist up. Plus, they are too long for me, and the likelihood that I will get them tailored and hemmed anytime soon is very slim to none.  Luckily, I bought these pieces at Nordstrom and I will be able to return them!  For reference, I got the pants in a size 2 and the blazer in a size 4.  Sizing up to a 6 might have helped with the blazer, but they are totally sold out which is a bummer because they are currently a great sale price!

Hot Pink Tory Burch Small Radziwill


I've recently been following a lot of Nordstrom stylists, and Fashion Jackson's stylist, @styledbyabbywest, posted this WAYF set and how she wears the pieces several different ways. You know I immediately ordered it.  It's basically an athleisure suit but it looks like a regular suit. It's still suiting fabric, but it's not stuff! It's an amazing addition to my wardrobe and I think it could go with a lot of different tops underneath.  I can also wear either the joggers or the blazer on their own and with different outfits.  The blazer is my first really oversized blazer that I always felt was a little bit too "cool" for me, but I'm excited to pair it with denim shorts in the spring/summer. I'm excited to find new ways to style the whole thing and use it for a lot of my next themed lewks this year! 


I wore this for my Galentine's day book club this year, which I will detail in another post in the future. I thought it was the perfect amount of girly and cute, without going overboard on the actual Valentine's day theme.  This hot pink Tory Burch Small Radziwill is one of my favorite new bags that I got for my birthday last year.  It is the perfect pop of color for me, especially for these Valentine's Day outfits.  It is unfortunately sold out on the Tory Burch website in this color, but I highly recommend the silhouette in any color.  It fits my iPhone 11pro, card holder and keys, and not much else, but it packs the perfect statement and gives serious Hermes Kelly vibes. 



Suit: White House Black Market (similar at J. Crew) | Shoes: Nike AF1s




Ever since I saw AOC in a hot pink suit, I was immediately on the hunt for a hot pink suit. I have definitely gotten my fair share of wear out of this suit and it definitely kickstarted my collection of novelty suits.  Unfortunately this WHBM suit is sold out, since I got it a few years ago, but pink suits are taking stores by storm.  Argent came out with their own hot pink suit with Supermajority last year, but since I already had this one, I couldn't justify spending another $300 on a pink suit.  Also, this WHBM suit was definitely under $150 for both pieces, and I would only spend over $300 on a classic color suit at this current stage of my life. 


Suit: Banana Republic | Sandals: Joie (similar) | Cami: Uniqlo | Purse: Italy sidewalk store




This was actually my first pink suit, that I bought for my cousin's wedding in Florence, Italy in 2018. It made a real statement and I LOVED it with this little souvenir bag that I bought in a tourist shop in Florence.  I haven't worn it as much as my hot pink suit, but I'm definitely planning to pull it back out again during this Spring! I'm picturing pairing it with bolder colors, like a black and white striped top underneath, or maybe with my blue and white gingham Staud bag for a pastel look, perfect for Easter. 


These suits have all given me endless inspo for Valentine's day. I'm thinking, if Andrew and I actually go out to dinner on Valentine's day, that I'll wear my hot pink suit and the little silk twilly he got me for Valentine's day last year. Stay tuned!


Best,

Isabella
