A long weekend always seems to result in a low-key and comfy Monday morning look. Today I kept it fairly casual with my roll up chino pants, a simple sweater and of course my denim vest– a trend I don’t think I’ll ever be able to kick. My Levi’s denim vest has gone on a bit of a hiatus, but it has slowly made its way back and I find it to be the perfect piece of nostalgia to complement an outfit. It’s funny how a piece of clothing can bring me back to a piece of my childhood; in my denim vest I revisit Friday nights of eating pizza and watching TGIF on abc anxiously waiting for ‘Boy Meets World’ and ‘Sister Sister’ to come on. The simplest memories always seem to be the best, as are the simplest articles of clothing. It’s the ease of a denim vest that makes it hard not to love; it can be worn in a variety of ways and it always seems to provoke a fond memory in someone. Whether it’s the person wearing it or not, I can’t tell you how many times people have come up to me as if they’re in the company of an old friend at the sight of my vest. There’s no better way to face a Monday than with a good ole friend.
