The weather is still cool enough to need a jacket or sweater, and my favourite warm-up item is my black hoodie with the front pocket pouch.
It’s oversized, long enough to cover my butt and therefore keep my back warm. I like the long sleeves and often pull my hands up inside, for extra warmth. I remember when my kids used to do that, a habit I found annoying at the time, and now find comforting.
If not the sleeves, I put my hands in the pouch, for the same effect. The pouch also comes in handy, better and larger than pockets for holding, carrying stuff.
My hoodie is at-home wear now, as the sleeves are frayed, and there are paint stains on the front from previous art projects. I’ll need to buy a replacement, but haven’t found the right one just yet. There’s no rush, as I have this quilted denim jacket, also showing signs of wear, that has been my mainstay change of season garment for years.
Comfort clothes, where would we be without them? I think I’m going to have to go shopping to replace these items. But I’ll do it slowly, one item at a time, to lessen the loss.
