Speaking of suits

This one caught my eye at BR. I haven't seen it in person so don't know if the red is my best, but it's tempting! 

I wore a blazer for the first time in almost a year yesterday and it was SO GREAT!! 

In person teaching after several years away from that due to Covid and once again my love of jackets comes to the fore. 

I will try to snap some photos later this weekend of WIW.

    Exciting to be teaching in-person again, isn't it? That red suit would be smashing on you! I am looking forward to an upcoming WIW from you :).

    That is a really nice shade of red. You should definitely try it. 

  • Janet replied 4 months ago

    That’s really pretty! You should try it for sure. Doesn’t it feel good to wear REAL clothes again??

    I want to see the whole suit on you!!!

  • Tanya replied 4 months ago

    I bet it feels wonderful to be teaching/dong things in person again.

    The suit looks great, and it certainly worth trying to see if it is the right red for you.

    The suit looks nice , try it why not, maybe it's the right red for you.

  • Katerina replied 4 months ago

    The suit looks great! Seems to be a true red. You should definitely try it!
    I look so much forward to seeing your WIW from your teaching!

    That jacket/suit looks perfect for you. Looking forward to see photos.

    Looking forward to seeing it! I am nervous about teaching in person again in my COVID hotspot area but vastly prefer it to teaching online.

  • CarolS replied 4 months ago

    Love the colour and the ease of that suit. Can't wait to see if you give it whirl!

  • Greyscale replied 4 months ago

    Ha, yes, I'm wearing blazers more than ever now that I'm finally back in a classroom.

    I saw that online at BR -- wow. Their fall line looks really nice! I keep meaning to drop by the store and see what they have in person (though store inventories have been rather spare still).

    It does seem like it might be worth a try, right? Still mulling, but....

    And yes, I'm a bit nervous to be in the classroom also. We have a mask mandate for classrooms/ public spaces but no vaccine mandate for classrooms. (Students do need to prove they are vaccinated to eat on campus, go to events, live in residence, etc.) In fact, I'm told that 97% of the students and faculty and staff members *are* vaccinated (and of course, I am, as well) but it's still eerie and sometimes uncomfortable.

    Omg, a red trouser suit!My bank balance wishes l hadn’t looked at this post.

  • kerry replied 4 months ago

    Are you teaching at UVic?!

  • JAileen replied 4 months ago

    This would look smashing on you.  I hope the red is the right shade.

  • Suz replied 4 months ago

    Alas, backordered until Nov. 18 in Canada. The question is, do I want to wait so long? 


    kerry, yes. Therein lies a surprising tale. Which I will tell in a post within a week or two I hope. 

  • Brooklyn replied 4 months ago

    I love it for you.

    Re the back ordering. My experience is that they usually come in earlier than they say. But Covid might be creating difficulties.

    So tempting ! Love the flap pocket detail on the jacket and the wider leg pant . So chic ! All of this suit talk today made me want to dress up for work and I wore tailored full length pants, metallic brogues and a faux leather shacket today . So much nicer than the usual casual look.

  • Joy replied 4 months ago

    This is a beautiful suit l want one if it is a warm red and the pants are pull-on.

  • rachylou replied 4 months ago

    Very tempting. Hmm.

  • N replied 4 months ago

    Ooh, I like it! I love blazers. I've never been in a job where I needed to wear one but I've always worn them anyway with jeans or a skirt.

  • Minaminu replied 4 months ago

    very nice! Looking forward seeing the WIW pics, I am sure it will be a fab accent to your palette!

  • Karie replied 4 months ago

    It’s a beautiful suit, and worth the wait for the back order. It is nice to be back in the classroom and to be dressing up a bit more. It’s been too hot to wear my blazers, but they are in my closet and calling my name - just waiting for cooler weather!

    Gorgeous! Can't wait to hear how the new teaching job is going.
