WIW: For Canada Day...more blue than red

So, I had to give a reading in the park on Canada Day. And I didn't have anything really red to wear! Pathetic or what? Clearly I need to rectify that situation. In the meantime, here is what I wore, and let's say it's in honour of American Independence since it fits into today's ensemble theme. ;)

    I love it,Suz. The top reminds me of fireworks. Do you have fireworks for Canada Day? I love the backpack and small scarf with this outfit.

    Great outfit :) I'm struggling for red for our Fourth of July holiday too.

  • carter replied 7 years ago

    That top is so pretty on you! Love the pop with the scarf too.

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Thank you -- and yes, Joy -- that is true about the top!! I hadn't thought of it. 

    We had AMAZING fireworks on July 1. With a gorgeous full moon. It was fun; my daughter and I went out on the rock pier and watched.

    You look great! I don't think I have anything red in my wardrobe either.

    Such a cute outfit!
    I discovered I was a 'summer' a few years ago (I think you might be too?) so there is no red in my wardrobe save a red hockey t-shirt. Phew for that t-shirt on Canada day. 

    One thing that just occurred to me: what about some red shoes? You could pair them with white on top for Canada day.

    Love this look. One of my favourites. I do love red but I think I like this as is.

    The top is a little like fireworks, that is fun.

    Super cute, Suz. The scarf absolutely makes this outfit.  I don't own anything red either - I was a bad little Canadian :)

  • Jjsloane replied 7 years ago

    Thanks for honoring us down here Suz. Cute outfit and is that a white cuff? It really pops. We should swap countries since I have a closet full of red :)

    You look great!! Happy Canada Day! (From an American). I love the tube skirt paired with converse...I may have to copy that one

  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago

    This is terrific, Suz!  Blue can stand for the wide and clear Canadian sky.  The look is casual, but pulled together -- appropriate for the occasion.

    Proud to share a continent with you!

    Thanks for forgiving me my lapse of patriotism. 

    Smittie, I am a "summer" but cranberry red is one of my best colours; I just don't happen to have anything in that colour in my summer closet. I do have dark reds for winter. My wool coat is red and I love it! 

    It's a white cuff, yes! From Nickel and Suede -- Inge featured the blogger.

    Queen Radiant Health looks just beautiful here. Fab Sporty Luxe. 

  • Sveta replied 7 years ago

    Lovely! This shirt print is so beautiful - I am so glad you got it.
    You know what - I don't have anything red in my summer wardrobe either. Lett's rectify it together! 

  • replied 7 years ago

    Wonderful! Love the sporty shoes and the scarf. Fab backpack too.

  • Aubergine replied 7 years ago

    Love it! Everything looks so crisp and effortless, and the bit of pattern mixing between the top and scarf is really cool.

    I don't have much red in my summer wardrobe, but I do have some. And lots of blue. If I'm trying to go for a patriotic theme, it's the white that I never have.

    You totally rock the blues, Suz.
    JC has a flowered linen blue &EB eigy- taupe sweater on sale that made me think of you. Will try to add Find.

  • Jaime replied 7 years ago

    You are a beautiful and busy lady Ms. Suz!

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    Really nice outfit Suz:)  Suz do you wear red.  If so what shade works for you?  It's not a colour I think I have seen you in.

  • Eliza replied 7 years ago

    Great look, Suz. Blue loves you! I like the print of that top on you. Very festive! I don't have red in my summer wardrobe either. Not even my blue tone red or cranberry/wine.

  • jackiec replied 7 years ago

    So fresh! Love it.
