Who would have thought?
My birthday request this year was a strange one. “I would like a hoodie, please”.
This from the woman who has rigorously avoided the “athleisure” look for many a long year. How I have changed when a sweatshirt can brighten my day and give as much pleasure as the latest Balenciaga. And the best news, they listened.
I was spoilt this birthday and my wardrobe to go walkabout every day has greatly improved with new trainers, new sweats and a most beloved cashmere hoodie. How luxurious and protective it is. A sign of the times has me feeling comfortable cocooned like this when I am out and about. It’s not that I’m wandering around London, Lupin style (the best series on Netflix – you must watch) but that having the hood is like an inbuilt scarf. That extra fabric behind and to the side does feel cosy.
Then there is the cosy cotton. Soft and snuggly makes for great comfort in a hoodie or sweatshirt. My new-found wardrobe welcomes them both but I do have a penchant for the hoodie.
