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?
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....

and since he can't really read yet, who's to say it didn't come to my attention
(not in good mothering spirit?)
