I have a confession to make...
I recently bought a Jack Wolfskin jacket.
But let me tell you the whole story and why this confession - which for most people wouldn't be a biggie - is such a bummer in my life. This has to do with one more of my absurd prejudices that form over life - I have always hated the brand Jack Wolfskin. There is no logical reason why, but I guess it is because of the people I associate with it. As you know (or don't) I am not what you would call "outdoorsey" and, mostly, I consider my style to be up-to-date, stylish and borderline elegant, which doesn't correlate at all to being outdoorsey. Fortunately, as I am growing older, I become more relaxed when it comes to people who annoy me for no good reason (like their clothes) and I can accept their inability to style themselves or wear proper attire for the proper reason. The reason why I would have rather shot myself than buy at Jack Wolfksin before this day is simply because I cannot stand it when people walk through the city, go visiting people or, even worse, attend an event in too casual, sportive and simply improper attire. If you're casual or rather sportive that is no problem but it shouldn't stop you from dressing properly to the occasion and I think it is rather disrespectful attending a teacher-parenting conference wearing Jack Wolfskin from head to toe (we had a teacher who always did that and I HATED her for that (and other reasons, I am not THAT trivial)).
Anyway, my man and I are planning our next adventure and it includes a road trip through Europe where we will live medieval-style for a couple of weeks and I figured such an adventure and heels don't go well together...
Soooo, I needed proper outdoor attire and, following the rant from above about people not being able to choose the proper attire for the occasion, I figured I needed to apply my own rule and get some good outdoorsey things for our trip. I ended up buying a nice blue and grey jacket with a fleece included and even if I still cringe a little inwardly admitting it, I kind of love the jacket and have been spotted wearing it in the supermarket with sneakers (OMG, I am becoming one of THESE people). So probably next month you will find me running around wearing no makeup and a Deuter rucksack - but if I should, please shoot me.
PS More updates on the journey in the near future.
