Weekend

Photobucket

Saturday included shopping, late lunch at Jakes, people watching, new spider wearing, and looking bored in a suit...ing. 

 I always try to wear a suit when I go to into the city for shopping. It seems inappropriate not to, even though I look a little out of place. But I feel like going into town is a special occasion. Shopping for pleasure is something to work an afternoon around. Lunch, shopping, drinks, sightseeing. Special afternoons deserve more than the usual capri pants :)

I love it!

I really love those brogues - I was wearing a grey pair today that is very similar. Would love to find a sweet grey suit to complement them like you have here!

Oh, and that mac and cheese looks AMAZING!

I have those same gloves in navy! Love them. I have to agree that lunch and it's potential what have you's after words, need special treatment. You look divine.

I always dress up when I go shopping too though not in a suit (usually just a '50s dress). Lovely spider brooch and hat and I'm drooling a bit over the mac 'n cheese.

Beyond gorgeous!
I have a very similar suit, but in beige - and also, that hat is brilliant.

One day I'll found the perfect suit for outings like this, one day... You look so elegant, and the spider is so cool.

You look gorgeous, Solanah! I'm loving the hat and pin especially. ;) It's funny, but when I plan a weekend afternoon out shopping, I tend to dress up too. It just seems more fun if you're going to be leisurely window shopping and such. ;)

I think it is so lovely that you put on a suit to go shopping. I am not a suit wearing person typically but I love to dress up. I like treating special days like they are special and dressing appropriately. I would put on a pretty dress and red lips for a day of shopping. Those gloves are perfect.
