I have decided to remove the past week from the records of my life. It began with me being violently ill and ended with David recovering most likely from whatever I had. That’s love folks. The passage of sickness to your caregiver.
Did I mention that the rest of my family was sick too? Good times.
Anyway. This jacket. I love this jacket. I consider it to be my lucky jacket.
Then, I wore it to David and I’s immigration interview last year. I was literally sick with nerves and fretting about every detail of paperwork, possible questions, and of course… what to wear. I decided to go with something that I felt comfortable and confident it.
What could be worse in a situation like that then fidgeting with your outfit? Well, lots of things, but no need to make things worse with needless squirming.
This jacket provided me with some much needed confidence that day. Maybe it’s because of that amazing memory or maybe it’s because this is an awesome jacket, either way, this piece has become a go to when I am in need of an outfit quickly.
I am not really sure what it is about this particular pattern that pairs so easily with a spectrum of different colors and scales of design. I am definitely not arguing with it though. Don’t mess with success. Or successful pattern mixing.
