Every wardrobe has one – and here is mine! I wear it back to front, inside out or the right way round. Over my pj’s on a chilly morning to make the breakfast; under a coat to pop to the supermarket; with jeans and thick socks to hang around the house.
This one came originally from Zadig & Voltaire and it has the added joy of having the word ‘Happiness’ in pink printed across the back – additional emotional warmth factor.
In its heyday I wore it everywhere. With smart black trousers, with shorts on holiday, even with a tulle evening skirt and knee-high black boots. But its days of parading around London, parties and restaurants are over. The wool is permanently creased. The sleeves are so torn I struggle to get my hands through the ends, and there are holes under the arms and on the shoulders.
I can buy another one, I know, but in its current role it’s completely irreplaceable.
Divorce takes its toll. Sleepless nights, anxiety, stress…. today is a Comfort Jumper day…. a day to relax, rest and get some sartorial headspace.
Bring on Friday… x
