Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...
Even though it doesn't get nearly as cold here as it did in Denver we do have winter. It's just more in line with what I was used to living in New Mexico. I'm thankful that I don't have to experience snow and below zero temperatures anymore!! So even though I no longer need the heavier stuff, I still bundle up. I am a notoriously cold person (in temp, not heart) so I feel like I am always dressed in sweaters. In an effort to broaden my winter wardrobe I have developed a mild obsession with 49er jackets.
It's a gift...a 49'er
Pendleton starting making these jackets in 1949 (hence the name) and actually still make them. They have such a fabulously casual yet stylish look about them that they have become quite the collectors item. Finding them in my size, however, is a bit of a challenge. Usually I have a problem with the sleeves being too long. I would own an adorable pink one if my arms had been longer. Instead my friend Kat owns it. Oh well.
Here are the 49ers I do own:
I wore this to work yesterday. My coworker is always saying how I remind me of old photos of her mom in the 50s. This one is blue with cream and orange. It fits me quite nicely so I wear it often. I love the buttons on it!
This was my first 49'er. It is red and green and just a bit too big. I don't care though. I love the shell buttons and red and green are my favorite colors!
I always style my 49'ers with dungarees and a head scarf. I'm not very creative I guess as all the old adds feature them with pencil skirts.
This is my most recent acquisition that I haven't even received in the mail yet. I am completely in love with the lilac color!!
It is newer I believe. The add says 60s but I am not sure. I may see about changing out the buttons if I can find ones similar to those on my blue one. I just love those!
It is a Young Pendleton so hopefully it fits well. It looks soft and comfy and I can't wait to wear it!!
So ladies...how many 49'ers do you own? In what colors???
