'Give Me My Robe, Put on My [Hat]'


I've decided to refresh my wardrobe (and to quell my shopping angst) with the purchases of hats and scarves.  And so far, it seems to be working.  This is the second hat I've bought and I must say I love it.  I wasn't really a hat person before, but this winter, in all of its brutality, has forced me to cover my noggin'.  Also, I think cute fedoras are the answer to my hair dilemma this summer for driving in the BF's jeep wrangler sans top!

What do you guys think about hats?  Love em, hate em or indifferent?


Scored these Coach lovelies for $90 after much back and forth.  But sooooo worth it!  Silly me should have nabbed them in black as well.


Wearing my first ever Coach bag that my mom gave me for my 16th birthday. I'd say it's aged well over the past 17 years!  Been in love with Coach ever since!



Two years ago, I was on a quest to find the perfect color Pashmina scarf.  So of course I hit my usual places - Bloomies, Saks - and all were, of course, priced well above $150.  Thankfully, I ran across this pretty color while at a street fair and proudly handed over my $4.00!  It looks beautiful, washes beautifully and I get lots of compliments on it!  Now if I can just find the perfect Kelly Green color....



Would appreciate it if you guys would also follow me on Bloglovin'!  Let me know when you do and I'll gladly return the favor!
