This outfit SCREAMS mid-70s to me.
This looks like something I sewed from a pattern back then.

I'm not so sure I agree with the statement that this outfit is a timeless classic.  It comes from an era that I would not want to revisit.

My teaching career (and married life) began in 1971.  The OP's photo (you look lovely) looks like what I wore to school.  I loved sleeveless dresses with matching jackets. (also love the simple low pumps)

 

The biggest drawback to shorts skirts was you had to be very careful not to bend over or reach too high.  Back then we always wore pantyhose.

I look back at this suit of mine when I was 24...it's a classic.. off white knit with dark blue and maroon red striping... I have a better photo somewhere to see the colors, but it's still my style today. Such quality. It's professional looking as well.

Beautiful! How tall are you?

@ALRATIBA  and I discussed this a while back but just because you're older doesn't mean that your taste has changed! So you modify for any changes in your body.

For example the legs I have now call for a longer skirt! LOL
