How to Rock a Striped Suit!
Hey loves! I’ve fallen in love with suits over the past 5 years and I’m so excited to share with you one of my favorite suits of the season!! If you love stripes like I do, then you already know this look will be on repeat (probably about 3 times😜)this spring/summer. I’ll interchange the jacket and pants with other pieces to keep the looks fresh though! Believe it or not, you can do a lot with stripes.
About a month ago I was in the town of Duck, North Carolina on the Outer Banks (OBX) with my family. It was 15 of us. We rented a 10-bedroom property that was absolutely gorgeous. I really needed this week long break from Baltimore. Living on the beach was all that I expected it to be. Quiet, relaxing and peaceful. The ONLY thing I could complain about was the annoying little insects (Midges) that love to fly around in the evening🙄. But I’m not gonna complain about those lil midges because those 7 days were exactly what I needed to recharge my life! Although I didn’t get a break from my two active boys, Trey & Tristan, I was still able to rest some and I enjoyed a nice relaxing bath with Lavender sea salts and a bottle of wine. I really enjoyed the time away from Baltimore. The boys had a blast too!
The town of Duck, NC is a really laid back resort town. It has a reputation for great beaches, water sports, water front shopping and fine dining. This coastal community has a year round population of 369 and during peak vacation season(starting after a Memorial Day), the population increases to over 20,000.
Duck also has some of the best 🍩. Can you guess the name of the donut spot? Yup, you guessed it, Duck Donuts. Maple Bacon topped donuts for the win!! 🙌🏽
So let’s get down to business and talk about the Striped Suit that I love so much. I wore it one night for dinner as we celebrated my cousin Claritza’s birthday. Fun times with yummy food and fellowship with the loved ones!
So remember when I mentioned the town is pretty laid back? Yeah, well this suit is far from laid back. I think it’s a head turner and I love it! I always say, “be a stiletto in a room full of flats. Do ya thing mama!! Dress the way you like, whenever you like. Just be you!”
Anyway, earlier that day, I asked my mom to take some photos of me wearing the suit and she agreed. After seeing the photos she took of me, I was so impressed. I excitedly told my mom that she has found her calling. Lol. She laughed and said she always loved photography. She really took some great shots of me. You’ll see below. Let me know what you think. Comment below if you like the suit and let me know how YOU would rock it differently. I’ll link the details of my entire outfit as well.
Check out the photos below.

Thankful for the sun because it was a little chilly out that day.
I love a nude shoe. I felt like this blush color pump was perfect because it doesn’t take the focus away from the suit.
I purchased the Blazer and Pants separately from H & M. I got both pieces on sale ( I love a sale) so I ended up paying about $60 total for the suit!!! My friends are really impressed at all the deals I find when I go out shopping. Book ya girl for all your personal shopping needs. Whatever you’re looking for, I’m sure I can find it for less! Yes, I’m that good! 🤑
Just recently, I wore the striped pants, paired with a black tank and yellow jacket for the Black Eyed Susan Day at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. I received so many compliments that day. Everyone loved the striped pants and how I pulled the look together. Here’s a few pics of that look.
I would love to hear your comments on how I rocked the striped suit. Let me know how you would rock it. I need some ideas since I plan on wearing the pieces more this Summer.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my post.
Until next time,
