Coats + Blankets= Less Productivity

By now this blanket cape is plastered across the fashion webiverse and is definitely plastered in your brain as well.

Granted, Burberry sold out in .2 seconds last season, which means this season it has moved on down the fashion line….. to every store every where!

Blanket coats are nothing new, think about it. People use to only wear blankets when going out in the winter- old school capes anyone?

This seasons blanket wraps/coats/capes, or whatever your little heart desires to tag them, are not only warm, cuddly, and popular- but get this, they are scientifically proven to lower work productivity (don’t quote that on a research paper kiddos). Follow me through this.

You show up at work wearing this: (Don’t you love the colours btw??)

You take it off, but by mid-morning you realize you are the only one freezing your butt off because the air vent is directly above your desk, and since it’s only you there’s no way anyone is going to change the thermostat. So you grab your coat which kept you toasty on your way to work, when about 15 minutes later you discover,

“Oh! I can tuck my legs up under here and no one can tell. Sweetness.”

So there you are, in your favourite tucked up Netflix binging pose (that’s completely a new yoga pose- again don’t quote this in a major paper!), the next thing you know, by 11:30, you’re bent over your keyboard, drooling and wheezing softly. See? Blankets as outerwear are dangerous to productivity. At least when you jump as your boss wakes you up, you can show him how all that drooling finally cleaned up your keyboard, just give it a quick wipe off with your trusty blankie.
