I want you to see it first.
This picture perfect Christmas scene is complete with tree, lights, gifts, and schizophrenic sweater vest. Now schizophrenic does not necessarily mean dual personalities (although this sweater fits that bill), it actually means a break with reality. I believe both describe this sweater perfectly.
If you’ll notice, it is a patriotic santa sweater vest. As American as egg nog, ole’ Saint Nick, and the Fourth of July. So, when do you wear it? Christmas? The Fourth of July? Memorial Day? Presidents Day? I say ALL of them. We definitely could use a little Christmas time in the summer months, so why not some fireworks and flag waving in December? However, it does concern me where this might go: easter bunnies carrying jack-o-lanterns, Thanksgiving turkeys handing out Valentines, little green leprechauns wishing you a happy new year? Seems like a slipper slope to me…proceed with caution.
*special thanks to Laura for sending me the photo, Ashley for wearing it like a champ, and to Ashley’s mother-in-law for purchasing it (why, why, why?).
