Working as an accountant and in NYC I always had a pretty decent wardrobe . Suits were the mainstay. Since I am semi retired I have greatly reduced my wardrobe. I just checked my closet I am down to only 5 suits 2 with pants and 3 skirt suits

I love that outfit - I'd definitely wear that to the office if I could! Where did you get it from?

its a " Le suit" I got it on line at Kohls. If you are looking also try Macy's They are running major sales on all of their skirt suits. This is pretty decent stuff both the jacket and skirt are lined. If it helps I wear a slightly tight 34 pants and a large in shirts I got size 16 in the skirt suit

Now that's your best submitted outfit to date, OS1, by a Country Mile!

Nice length of everything, nice material & colour. Not sold on the shoes, though. Perhaps I'm just being fussy. I'd be fussy about the jacket sleeve lengths, too.

I very much like the style, very professional (from one finance guy to another). And I love the shoes. What brand and where did you get them?

Supposedly, men's US shoe sizes are 1-1/2 larger than women's. Theoretically, that would make men's size 9 equivalent to women's size 10.5.

But women's shoes tend to be narrower, which affects things. And when I (at least) wear women's shoes, I either wear tights or no socks at all, whereas with men's shoes I wear much heavier socks. So I end up wearing a size 10.5 men's and 11 women's.

And I still ending up returning at least half the shoes I buy from Amazon.

From a UK perspective...

I wear a size 9 standard men's shoe. However, by trial and error, I wear a size 8 wide in women's shoes.

I buy from M&S, Clarks, and, Hotter - the latter being the most comfortable (in standard width).

Here's a good one . Going back a way's when I first started to wear skirts. I would wear them around the house . Then I f I had to go out I would quick change into shorts or pants.

The other day I was sitting around wearing one of my dresses . Since I am not yet really comfortable going out in dresses and I had to run out to the store I made a quick changer. As I was going out the door I realized that my quick change security clothes was a skiirt

I believe you have "turned the corner" successfully. Bravo! All too many seem to wind up "off the rails" or on their sides. That first curve is, to be honest, a tough one.

Could always throw on a shirt, or if it's cool enough, a sweater or a sweatshirt. No need to change the rest of the outfit.
