It’s definitely fall and I’ve been pulling out my fall favorites from my closet all week. It’s time to sleep in heavier pajamas, it’s time for boots, it’s time for light jackets. It’s time to realize some of my clothes are approaching “vintage” status.
For starters, there’s my black leather jacket. Mr. Sally J and I ended up buying each other leather jackets the year we got engaged. I remember this because we’ve always called them “our engagement jackets.” We got engaged in 1999. So yeah. Then there is, as far as I can tell, the oldest piece of clothing that I still wear.
It’s a sweatshirt from my younger brother’s freshman year of college, which was 1995. The sweatshirt came home from school with him, and somehow it made its way into my wardrobe. I still sleep in it, and I’ve been known to wear it under jackets when it’s really cold. It’s just a simple grey sweatshirt, with the college logo slowing fading. I don’t plan on retiring it anytime soon.
So, what’s the oldest thing in your closet?
