Sweater Vest Weather!

So, someone in my wife’s family is getting married today and we’re going up to the wedding.  Naturally weddings are formal events, so it’s semi-formal attire.  My wife’s idea of getting dressed up is to wear jeans without holes in them, generally.  My idea of casual attire is not wearing a tie.

Apparently I thought The Godfather and The Untouchables were a fashion show.

Another point of interest in this conversation is that it is currently the end of October, in Western Pennsylvania, so it’s somewhat chilly.  As a matter of fact, as I write this post, it is 48 degrees Farenheit outside.  And because I’m trying to keep the gas bills under $500 a month this year (that’s another story you’ll hear before too long) I’ve got the heat set pretty low inside the house, too.  So I’m pretty much just walking around cold all the time, lately.  And there’s still November, December, January, and February to get through.

Shut up, Ned!

So last night we were planning what we were going to wear and the wife was deciding on how to wear her hair, what blouse to wear, what pants, what accessories…blah, blah, blah.  And then a sudden realization dawned on me: It’s Sweater-Vest Weather!

That's right, Bitches!

My wife doesn’t let me wear my sweater vests very often (or ties, or button-down shirts, or even polo shirts), because she says that when we go out together it looks more like I’m her father than her husband.  So when I get the chance to throw on some ’40s fashion, I relish in the opportunity.  I will be rocking that sweater vest all day today…or at least until we go to a Halloween party after the wedding and I have to change.

Of course when I change for the Halloween party I get to dress even cooler…
