I am currently at the Los Angeles airport waiting for my plane to go back home to Minneapolis. This trip went by so quickly. Every part of it was really great. Maybe I will go into more depth later but for now I am exhausted and can't type anything much. Thank goodness I wrote a bit of a post and edited these photos on the train two weeks ago so I can just use them here:
hat, jacket, top - vintage
skirt - **~Heartbreaker~** (lol do u get it)
legging/tights - gift from mom :)
I have never really been a hat person - I always felt so awkward in them but I think it was because I never found the *right* hat. I saw my friend wearing this big floppy black hat in some photos at a beach and she was wearing a tie die dress and some kind of flawy shawl-thing too, I think. Then it hit me. I LIKE hats! I still couldn't find a hat that called to me. I had a couple of beanies that I really liked but not any "hatty" kind of hat. You know, with a brim and not like a baseball cap or beanie. (Not that beanies or b-ball caps are really ~boring~ but they are somehow not in my head in the category of what a *hat* is.)
A while ago I found this hat. I tried it on, and I fell in love. It fit me and a had a good brim and even had a nice little tie around the bucket part of the hat. I have worn it a fair amount and I really like how it completes an outfit. It adds a lil something that you can't get with any other accessory. I don't know. I like it.
