I wear this around the house

The vest is 'open' and I'm still considering locating a vintage sweater clasp to be able to keep it 'together'. The color is an off-color beige which goes with everything and nothing, if that makes sense. It is very soft and has a silky lining. It is NOT a faux-fur in terms of being 'fuzzy' but very soft with a curly (looped) finish. I'm a little nervous when working with the wood stove as I'm never sure if it will melt or burst into flames. I ordered the Medium (5'4" 130lbs) and it fits fine - definitely wouldn't have gone smaller but did give some consideration to going with a large which would have allowed me to wear more heavyweight sweater under it vs currently it works well with a long sleeve t-shirt / henley style but nothing heavier. I like it and I kept it and I wear it often but I don't think it will ever be something that is at the top of the list when I'm dressing to go out - even just running errands. It would be very difficult to fit it under a heavier coat but works well for inside wear.
