365 Vintage Days: Office wear

My work involves a lot of meetings, planning and writing so I spend most of my time inside a clean and nice office. I often wear vintage suits, or skirts and sweaters. This type of outfit is easy, comfortable, very suitable for the office and does not rise eyebrows. I have summer, fall and winter suits, in different colours and materials.

One on my late summer suit is made of red slightly shinny cotton with black details. Since I bought it in spring 2012 in Portland, I have used it pretty often, that is when the weather is warm enough. I have now stored it for winter (Helsinki is already experiencing freezing temperatures).

Pictures were taken late September on the way back home and at home, after a long day at work and dinner in town with my husband. My coat is a red and black light satin like material, with a princess cut, purchased this summer from a friend. It fits really nicely with my suit but it is really more a coat for summer evenings than for winter so I also had to store it away, waiting for spring.

I also had a red and black purse that I use very often to go to work, because it is roomy and practical. I also had black heels, red gloves and a black sweater. And black loop earrings but no bracelet as I find charm bracelets or bangles unpractical when using a computer and mouse.
