I have a confession to make – I am obsessed with jackets at the moment. There I’ve said it! Please don’t judge me 🙂
All week I have had to plan my work outfits around my jacket obsession. I have worn my groovy black one, which I bought recently with my sister, (what a fun time we had shopping together!!); I have worn my new white one with black trim and cute pockets for the first time this week; the red textured one was worn today and tomorrow it may just be the orange (high vis) one. I have my brown tweedy riding look alike jacket which I have had for years and feel like I just need to don a pair of riding boots and jodhpurs and I’d fit right in at any gymkhana, despite my dislike of anything horsy; I have a few black ones, with collars and without, a brown one, a few trench coats, an orange duffel coat, a red woollen winter coat and various others. I like colour and texture in clothes and I love structure. I like the buttoned up effect at the right time too, which says something about my personality I think!
As the weather cools down and we approach the winter months I don’t need any excuse to don a jacket and the hardest thing is choosing which one! I know I must sound like some fashionista but I’m not, I’m just a jacket junkie.
I have collected my jackets over many years and the benefit of not changing sizes too often means that I can just re wear them year after year, which I do. I love the effect of a jacket, they are just so smart and I feel so smart when I wear them. I have lots of cute little cardigans but….they just don’t cut it for me. I am quite small and enjoy the increase in size that a well cut jacket gives me. Maybe it’s like the shoulder pad effect and I’m turning into some power dresser! I did go into work today and stated to my colleagues that I think I’m currently obsessed with jackets and they just looked at me and said ‘you think?’ Obviously my secret obsession isn’t such a secret.
Is there some fashion item that you are obsessed with? Maybe you collect scarves…I have a few of them too, all different colours and sizes….but don’t get me started! Let me know that I’m not alone here.
