This leather beanie has been the “finishing touch” for several of my looks so far this season…and will surely be for several more!!
When I was growing up, I was very prone to earaches; so my mom was always insistent that I wear a hat as soon as the weather turned even the littlest bit chilly. Of course, this meant I rebelled later on – until quite recently, you would never find me wearing any kind of head covering. But over the past few years, I’ve definitely come around to the charms of a great hat…and I have a growing collection to prove it!!
Apparently, we lose a large percentage of body heat from our heads; so it just makes sense that a hat would be a great way to help us stay warm. To that end, I’ve enlisted the help of some layers here, too: my thin, wool v-neck sweater; my plaid shirt; and my quilted faux-leather jacket. These maroon skinnies were originally a “coated” denim, but unfortunately – after only one wash – that finish was “finished!!” Are we not supposed to wash coated denim?!
