Many a hat moment

Clearly I have been having many hat moments lately, for one of two reasons. 1) I’ll just ‘fess up right now and say some mornings I don’t feel like doing much with my hair. 2) I feel the need to wear as many hats as possible now because come summer, nothing sounds worse than a hat on my head. Here’s the breakdown:

Blazer: Oscar de la Renta via Salvation Army
Blouse: H&M 
Denim: Elle via Kohl’s
Boots: White Mountain via Macy's 
Ring: H&M
Necklace: Charlotte Russe
Hat: Handmade

I am such a sucker for this blouse. I love its eccentricity and its quirkiness. This was my first time wearing it with a blazer; sometimes I feel it’s a waste to cover up the horse print so much, but considering I wanted something slightly warmer to wear than just this blouse (read: my wool Oscar blazer), I decided today was the day to make that sacrifice and allow the print just to peep out.

Make a meal out of it
