Weekend look: Faded memories

Looking down

Does this jacket make me look tough? I certainly thought it did when I bought it roughly 10 years ago, one of my first big purchases.

Today, I rolled out of bed unwilling to shave and reluctant to style my hair. Looking rough around the edges, I felt it would be a good time to dig it out and go for a look highlighting some of my favourite timeworn pieces.

The jacket used to be my constant companion as I was growing up, both in high school and thereafter. I loved the zippers and the weight of the heavy cotton denim. The years passed. The black faded. The pockets and hems rolled perfectly with age. Buttons fell off and were replaced, but it remained my favourite jacket.

Funnily enough, I had almost forgotten about it, but the past has a way of catching up with you, even amid the deadlines and pressures of being a responsible adult.

It’s nice to know you can still reach to the back of the wardrobe and be a rebel again for a weekend.
