Wanna know something awful about me? I’m a terribly jealous person and suffer fashion envy all the DAMN time! Every other day I’m lusting after some poor woman’s coat that I saw in the street or some school girls amazing braids, mentally taking pics of the desired outfit/hairstyle and hoping I can emulate it in the future.
Such was the case when I saw my beloved Adjpant’s floppy hat in her Galentine’s Day post earlier in the year. I knew I had to have one before winter arrived so I could rock a 70s retro vibe all season long. Alas, all the hats I saw were a little too expensive for my blood (I’m talking in the $50+ region) and I thought my dreams of channelling Stevie Nicks would be dashed…
I shouldn’t have feared defeat and knew that my spiritual home, A.K.A. Kmart, would be stocking this fabulous black felt floppy hat AND for $15 no less. HALLELUJAH, it’s sheer perfection!
Today I’ve teamed it with one of my favourite old black dresses from Express, Coach heels and a silver and blue feather Lovisa necklace to complete that hippy vibe. Now I just need to grab my bongos and hit a bonfire somewhere!!
Now I feel like I’m sticking true to my dream of wearing hats more often. Have you been wearing more hats lately?
