Have you ever wondered about a failsafe way to add extra oomph to an outfit?? Then a hat is definitely where it’s at!! It’s hard to believe that there once was a time when I wasn’t a fan of headgear – it’s true; you can ask my mom! – because nowadays a cool/fun/interesting hat is probably my number one way of adding a little somethin’ somethin’ to an ensemble that otherwise seems a bit too basic.
Although feeling “basic” actually wasn’t the issue today; I was totally loving my menswear-inspired white shirt, striped blazer, and vegan leather leggings combo even without the addition of my flat-top fedora. But it was drizzling (welcome to February in Vancouver!) which meant that in order to keep my freshly washed and flat-ironed ‘do staying flat – as opposed to turning into a frizzy fuchsia mess – a hat was non-negotiable.
And speaking of “flat”?? I finally got around to wearing my hidden-wedge booties again!! Maybe it’s just me, but when you own a really amazing collection of heels like I do (teehee) it’s honestly kind of tough to convince yourself to go with flat footwear…even if it’s only every once in a while. Because – let’s be totally honest here – there’s really no such thing as a “statement” loafer or ballerina shoe!! Plus, I never feel quite as fearless when I’m wearing flats as I do when I’ve got some extra height going on…which makes these pseudo-flat boots the perfect compromise.
So yeah – with a fab hat and some equally fabulous heels, I think it’s entirely possible to rock a burlap sack and look stylish…not that I have the urge to try, ha ha!! But what about you, dear readers?? What pieces never fail to have you feeling those “fearless fashionista” vibes?? I always look forward to reading your feedback!!P.S. I wanted to thank you so much for your words of sympathy over the loss of our ferret Fancy last week. It always takes me a few days to feel “back to normal” after we say goodbye to one of our fur-babies…and I truly appreciate your kindness and patience while you awaited regular programming!!
