#HERSSENTIALS: Puff Puff, But Don’t Pass That Dutch

Transitioning to warmer climes from cold temps has never been easy, but the one thing you can’t pass up is a puffer jacket. Insulated with bird’s feathers, the puffer jacket is bound to keep you warm. While everyone out there in the city swears by a black puffer (myself included), the one jacket I’ve been wearing non-stop is my dad’s treasured Lucien Pellat-Finet weed jacket.

Frankly, it might a little too early for a 4/20, but you can’t ignore the fact that marijuana-themed clothes are my jam all thanks to my dad. When I was growing up, he’d be rocking über distressed jeans, flashy shirts, a blinged out cross necklace and loafers. When it came to colder climes, he’d splash out on super statement outerwear, which included Lucien Pellat-Finet sweaters and this puffer jacket. The funny thing is that he never smoked pot, but he wore the leaf proudly nevertheless. (NOTE: I have a feeling that he thought that they were maple leaves!)

One day, he told me to wear it as the temps were climbing down to less than zero. So, I did and now that it’s climbing back above zero, I’ll happily throw it on with anything! Whether it’s day or night, I always feel cozy in that thang. Talk about being better than a sweater!

Lapis - (n.) a layer Shrek once said that "onions have layers" as he was peeling one. Like an onion, I have layers. Born in Jakarta and raised in Singapore, I grew up being surrounded in a multicultural environment. Then, I moved to the States, where I lived in NYC and L.A. The creativity, hustle, bustle and vibe of those cities inspired me to become a blogger, journalist and influencer. Writing by day and living it up by night, I slay in the streets one OOTD at a time. Full-face makeup included, too. ;)
