Beanie: Tobi | Sweatshirt: Cotton On | Dress: Old | Boots: Cole Haan (similar) | Rings: Topshop & Kate Spade | Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs
On the day that I wore this outfit (and truth be told, I've worn three different versions of this outfit in the past six days), the temperature actually dipped below 50 degrees at one point. Naturally, this both shocked and excited me so I thought I would go all out and wear a hat.
I love the idea of beanies. I dream of one day owning the perfect leather moto jacket to pair with one of the beanies I own (for a girl who lives in Florida, I own too many to begin with). I know some people think of beanies as frumpy or too "hipster," but I think that they can be so chic when styled correctly.
Having said that, me wearing a beanie usually involves me asking anyone who is around, "does this hat look right on me?" 5-12 times before I actually feel comfortable wearing it in public. Is it too floppy? Is it not floppy enough? Does it emphasize the egg-shapedness of my head (it's true)? Do I look like I'm trying to hard? Is it way too warm for this?
After all of these questions, I usually realize that I love it and disregard anyone's answers anyway. So, if I ever ask you anything about a beanie I'm wearing - just nod and say it looks fabulous because odds are that I will wear it anyway, despite the fact that it is almost never practical for weather. Who ever said practicality was a realistic part of fashion? No one.
Also wind was clearly a problem on the day of these photos. Sorry for all the leg.
