It was an unusually cold October afternoon
when these photos were taken. In other words, the perfect weather to test drive my new lightweight down jacket. Which is what I’ll probably be living in now that it’s November.
I know what you’re thinking: ‘not again, another jacket in blue’. To be honest, there wasn’t a lot choice. There was the fire engine red, of course… But no, not very practical. Sure, I like red, but I prefer slightly more muted reds, or burgundy (why can’t I find a jacket in burgundy?!?). And of course there was black (hell, no), white (ditto), and a sort of army green (err… no). So, blue it is. Besides, it goes with anything. Or anything that I seem to be wearing these days…
Well, like the rest of the world, I live in athleisure these days. And I’m beginning to think that maybe it’s time we stopped apologising for it.
Life as we know it has changed. Whether that change is permanent remains to be seen. Nevertheless, we’ve been living in some version of ‘comfort wear’ for so long that I don’t believe we’re going to give it up anymore.
I’m just hoping it won’t be too long before fashion designers take notice.
Hello, any fashion people out there??? I just want to remind you that this is a unique business opportunity: we desperately need clothes that can take us from bed to conference calls (OK, I admit: been there, done that…) and make us look super stylish and elegant…
