Short Suit: Rebecca Taylor (unfortunately, sold out), Shoes: Herve Leger, Bag: ASOS, Necklaces: Jennifer Zeuner, Albeit. Bracelets from top to bottom: Gorjana,  Giles & Brother, PoshlocketMcQueen, Amarita Singh. Sunglasses: Karen Walker
I adore the modern take of this short suit. I wore this to a few meetings the other day (none that were too formal) and felt professional, yet still like myself with the feminine scallops and the shorter length of these shorts. I actually wish it was easier to find short suits like this, especially going into fall. I'm thinking a tweed version in a rich berry hue.. (mmm!)

  50. What a gorgeous short suit! The scalloped detail on the blazer makes it so special and I love how the pieces can be worn just as beautifully on their own. A berry-hued tweed short suit sounds terrific to me too!
