Who would have thought a bold pink pantsuit would be one of the hardest working pieces in my wardrobe? I bought this suit a year ago without a purpose or a place but just because I loved the color and I love how Banana Republic suiting fits me. I wore it to the rewardStyle conference, wore it to a daytime wedding, to work (together and as separates), have worn each piece individually, and most recently wore it to NewsBash, an event hosted by DC-area newscasters to bring attention and necessary funding for breast cancer treatment and research in the Nation's Capital. The dress code was pink, and I fit in great wearing it with a pale pink J. Crew camisole.
Jacket: Banana Republic (16; no longer available but this lavender one is nice) | Tee: c/o Chicos (get your own!) | Pants: Banana Republic (14P; same cut of pants in lavender) | Shoes: ASOS (similar) | Bracelet: Had forever (budget-friendly alternative) | Earrings: Jenny Bird | Bag: ALLSAINTS | Lipstick: Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in Vivacious
I was so excited when I received this shirt from Chico's. I think this is such a brilliant campaign. I don't feel old, I feel bold at 43 years of age. I feel like I'm finally coming in to my own. I made a risky bold choice with my career, I'm feeling bold after three months of weight training and working out, and with age I've become more bold with my personal style and life decisions. Age isn't something to fear, it's something to aspire to, and to do it with boldness. It's refreshing to see a brand like Chico's celebrate women at every age; I'm honored to partner with them.
Speaking of this suit, Banana Republic has some amazing suiting this season. No hot pink, but a pale pink, lavender, plenty of neutrals and some cool patterns. Banana Republic has also extended their size range to 20, with pants in short, regular, and tall lengths. I find the Ryan cut of pants fits me extremely well; these are the Ryan and I also have them in black and navy pinstripe.
