This yellow Old Navy performance fleece was in a more recently stowed box in the attic, about 15 years ago. (As I said before, I found a ton of crap of my mom's from the early to mid 1980s over the weekend.)
I'm pretty sure this was the first thing I bought at Old Navy. It was either this, or flare jeans. Either way, all of the cool middle schoolers had performance fleece. I think it was probably the North Face of middle school in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
I mean, Old Navy even had a commercial jingle for it, so it was legit.
These things were so popular that I'm pretty sure this bright yellow was one of the only colors left in my size. I could never imagine my 11-year-old self digging this yellow number up as my first choice. Regardless, I can still remember wearing the hell out of this.
I guess this means I'll have to start scanning photos from my awkward middle school years, to see if I find any photos where I'm actually wearing it. I don't know if I ever took it off back then, so hopefully those photos won't be too hard to find. ;)
