Pantone Pumpkin 1505 - The Asos Salon Suit

Oh man, it's been a long time since I last had an outfit post. And this particular one has been in my drafts for months. I've been so busy (slightly obsessed) fixing bits and pieces in the flat and decluttering that I somehow forgot about documenting how my wardrobe's changed over the past year.

Once upon time, Laetitia posted photos of a coral short suit. She styled it three different ways. And it was love at first sight. So when she decided to sell it, I just had to get it. 

This is actually a bit out of my comfort zone. Not because of the colour (duh!) but because of the short. I received the suit back in October and it's been hanging in my closet ever since. First I blamed it on the winter: too cold to wear it. And it ended up becoming a challenge. I don't really like my thighs and I just had to remind myself that it doesn't mean I can't wear shorts.

I wore the Batman outfit to work, the second one to visit Astrid but the third one never left the flat. I'm thinking of altering the jacket, maybe adding a belt or something. I'm certainly not done experimenting with this suit.
