I’m aware that anybody who knows me is going to think I’ve gone nuts.
I’ve put up a couple posts recently wherein I’ve jokingly drawn attention to this old paint-splattered puffy vest of my husband’s, and people are coming out of the woodwork in support of the utilitarian wardrobe item whose very existence is my bane. All the popular sporty girls in my high school wore Mountain Equipment Co-op puffy vests every day and I pretty much vowed one would never slip over my shoulders.
It actually gets pretty chilly at night here in the summer, so if we’re sitting around the bonfire or what have you, dressing warm is still key. So I guess it made me wonder if, hypothetically of course, it were even possible to pull off a puffer vest and look relatively cool. Well it kind of turns out you can?
