a beanie please.

This look is perfect and it reminds me of why I love the city we live in so much.  Layering is a part of my daily dressing and I can't get enough of a little faux leather jacket over a girly white dress.  And when fall/winter hits, you know I'll be adding a beanie into the mix.

Are you more of a fedora or floppy hat wearing person?  I can't decide for myself.  I love both.  Depending on my mood (and how my hair is acting that day), I like to change it up a bit.  I purchased this fedora and am kind of obsessed.  I think it's a great transition accessory as we head into fall.

top it off.

Remember when I said I was going to try and add some hats into my wardrobe?  Well I did last night and I gotta say that I'm kind of hooked.  I have been sporting my beanie around town the past few weeks and have been loving it.  Then last night my husband, sweet friend Natalie and I attend an even at Anthropologie (hosted by these girls) and I brought out my big floppy wool hat.  I think you'll be seeing a lot more of me in hats this year.

beanie love.

The other day as I was heading out the door, I gave myself one last glance in the mirror and decided that my hair wasn't quite cooperating.  I had little time to do any major fixes, so I popped on a beanie and I have to admit, I really liked the final look.  Nothing like a hat to fix a bad hair day.  Oh and a swipe of red lipstick always brightens my mood.  Happy Friday everyone!

summer getaway.

At the moment, I'm craving a little summer getaway.  Yay, yay, yay...I realize it's not quite summer yet, but I'm aching for it now.  I mean I'm not going to lie, I'm not exactly the girl that's waiting for the season to begin just so she can run off to the beach.  I will most definitely be hitting up the beach, but I will be the girl with a HUGE umbrella shading me.  But it's more then just the sun that summertime brings.  It brings about a certain carefree attitude, a vacation mode, a sense of new things to come.  I'm ready for that feeling and I believe that the anticipation deserves a new dress to go along with it. Don't you?  I do believe that this lovely little yellow number would do the trick.  Uhhh hello, add a cute sun hat and sandals...we are done.

By the way, after I wear the stunning yellow number on my summer vacation (ha, do you notice that I'm already pretending like it's mine?)...I will definitely doll it up with a statement necklace and some amaze heels.  If I'm going to buy a pricey dress, I get a lot of bang for my buck (aka I wear it every chance I get).
