When to wear a fleece vest

(Because when not to would give us much less to talk about)

I may be the ultimate fleece vest fan. I tend to start wearing my vest on the first morning I wake up and realize I should have shut the windows the night before. I toss my fleece vest on over my fleece pajamas, slip into my fleece slippers and head downstairs to start the breakfast rush. See? Huge fan. “Why not just wear your fleece robe,” you ask. A sleeveless fleece vest won’t drag in the syrup. Genius. Aside from the kitchen in the morning, here are my favorite places to wear my fleece vest.

Wear fleece for apple picking.

When a stroll through the orchard is calling your name, you'll need your fleece vest. It makes for perfect apple picking attire.

Keep warm on the bike trails in fleece.

There is no better way to take it all in than perched on the seat of a bike. No matter if it is yours, a publicly shared bike, or your niece's old one from last year that she was nice enough to loan you for the weekend, you'll be sitting pretty when you roll through wearing your fleece vest. You'll never be too hot or too cold with a fleece vest on your back.
