Inspiration: Suited and Booted

I know this may be somewhat of an unpopular opinion, what with the ladies magazines shouting SUMMER SUMMER SUMMER BEACH BODIES SUMMER, but I am looking forward to cooler weather.

Why? Well, I'm suffering. I can't really get summer fashion right, I'm sorry to say. I'm no fashion blogger, I don't have wavy blonde hair or the ability to pose like I'm constantly walking somewhere. I can't wear heels and I don't want to get my bare legs out. 

I want to wear more suits. I wish I were Marlene Dietrich (obscure Vagabond Opera reference there...). But until it gets cooler again, all I can do is stare at pretty people in exquisite tailoring.
