My Boyfriend’s Jacket

I’m not going to lie, these photos were taken when it was cold enough to wear a jacket. Although, here in Wisconsin you never know when to put the jackets and boots away… June? July? who knows, every year is different.

I came into work wearing this blazer style coat and immediately my co-worker Melba (me in 30 years) told me she liked my ‘boyfriend’s jacket’. I said, ‘HUH?’ She told me they called that style back in the day, your boyfriend’s jacket. When she said that, it immediately made me think of a high school letterman’s jacket, but loved the idea of ‘my boyfriend’ vs the ‘the quarterback who I would never have dated in any case’, concept.

Wondering why I didn’t say my Husband’s jacket… He would NEVER wear anything like this, ha! You know the saying, “doctor’s kid is always sick”, well I need a saying something like, “fashionista’s husband never gets new clothes”.

Are there any old fashion sayings or styles you live by?
