Outfit: Suited and Booted



Sarenza Bocage Dimao boots

So as promised yesterday, I pulled out my trouser suit today. I’m glad I did too, as it’s a wool mix and we had another covering of snow overnight. It was minus 4 again when I set out this morning which is always fun. I had these trousers taken in after I reached my goal weight on WW and I don’t think I’ve worn them since. They still fit, but I don’t need them to get any tighter so I’ll need to watch my chocolate/ toast/ flapjack consumption if I want to keep wearing them! Having said that though, I don’t really like suits as suits. I am far more likely to wear the trousers and the jacket as separates rather than together. Unless a suit is particularly sharp I think it is very easy for them to look a bit dowdy. Reviewing my pictures from today I’m not entirely convinced about this one any longer and its days of being worn as a suit are definitely numbered.


Last night I went to the gym and then took a shower and got into my PJs and a cosy sweatshirt for the rest of the evening. I never really understood loungewear, but I can see it can be handy if you don’t want to put on your nightwear but you’ve taken a shower and don’t want to get properly dressed again either. And a cosy hoodie is just the job when it’s freezing outside.
