Hat Trick!

I did it.  I wore this hat to an event over the weekend.  It shouldn't be considered such a huge feat as I love this hat.  But there is something about wearing it (along with a few other items in my closet) that screams, trying to hard and defeats my goal to look effortless (and I only have this goal because I don't really want to put in the effort).  But playing "dress up" every once in awhile is fun and should be.  And why, not, my daughter does it every day and has not only no fear, but enjoys every minute of it.  So, in the spirit of the harem pant intervention, I put this lid on with confidence and walked out the door (only to realize that I really needed a ski cap because it's freeeezing here)!
What item do you fear?
Of course, the only photo captured of me is a second prior to shoving a handful of popcorn into my mouth
keeping it real


And while we are on the subject, I must say that I love the casual summer hat.  I'm pretty afraid of the sun so you can find me in a hat most of the summer.  Here are a few I plan on living in....
RalphLauren Boy hat (my son just received this hat as a gift, but it happens to fit me perfectly)
and since he can't really read yet, who's to say it didn't come to my attention
(not in good mothering spirit?)
J. Crew Mens
Athleta (perfect for errands on a no time for hair wash morning)
note the braid
She's just so cute, how can you NOT like the hat.  
Juicy Terry Hat - perfect for the beach

Happy Wednesday, Besties!

It looks great. I have a fear of hats....maybe less if a fear and more that they just look really bad one me.

I have these bright coral 4" wedges that I love to wear with a few of my dresses but want to wear with pants. I try them on and get scared because I'm always afraid it's just too much.

This looks great. I get what you are saying about wearing hats out. I"d love to try but fear them too. And I don't think I'm a hat person anyway. But you, you need to wear many more hats. So cute!
