The heat wave broke on Monday, and I knew I was going to be super busy at work, so I decided to break out this white suit and start the week out feeling polished and professional rather than stressed and sloppy. I took a break at lunch to get outside and enjoy the weather at Town Center with my coworker, Michelle (of Bytes of Bites).

I actually stumbled upon this suit last week when I was dropping off a donation to the thrift store. It was hanging on the rack all bright and white with the $300 price tag still hanging off of it. The girl at the register told me it was $9.99, so I figured even if it didn’t fit, I could drop it off at the consignment shop or something. Turns out, it fits me perfectly, and I love it! Wearing this suit was exactly what I needed to get me through a 14-hour day in the office on Monday.

Statement rings have been my go-to accessory for the last few months. I found this one at a little boutique in Asbury Park called My Sister’s Favorite Things when I was in New Jersey last week. I also found these two bracelets in New Jersey — in my old jewelry box that I haven’t rifled through since 2004. It’s nice that we’ve been reunited, so I’ve been wearing them all week.
