There's something about an outfit that's both commanding and feminine. It says "I'm out to shatter glass ceilings while also embracing my softer side" (because the ultimate power suit is about being able to do both, right?). I got the idea to combine this navy boucle jacket, striped top and pop of pink from the catalog photo, and I love how it turned out. I nicknamed it Career Barbie because it's perfectly girlie but also makes me feel like I can conquer the world and achieve whatever I put my mind to!
