Channeling the 60s

Like most of the world, I've been using the last few months to catch up on movies and TV shows that I didn't have time for in my pre-pandemic life. One such TV show that my husband and I are watching during this time is Mad Men. We started a tradition of having cocktail happy hour in the evening while watching an episode or two. With 92 episodes in total, it takes some time to get through the series but we are now almost done with only a few episodes left. Let me just say that it has been quite the wild ride through the 1960s! Well, I am now pretty much obsessed with not only the show but also the fashion of the 1960s. It's been interesting to watch the characters, culture and fashion trends change throughout the decade span of 1960-1970. Speaking of which, this matching jacket and skirt suit set reminds me of something that would be worn in the latter half of the decade. In fact, it could have even been a costume used by one of the extras of Mad Men if it wasn't from J. Crew!

This is definitely the type of outfit I would love to wear when I finally go back to work, which, unfortunately, isn't at Sterling Cooper. In this styling of the suit, I decided to add an extra dose of color by wearing a colorful striped tee underneath. In the future, I might pair it with just a plain white tee underneath for a more subdued look if such a thing is possible considering this is a suit that's bright orange and pink! I'd also love to wear the jacket with just a pair of jeans for a more casual look. The possibilities are definitely endless! Speaking of which, now that I'm almost done with Mad Men, any suggestions for what to watch next?
