s[n]o[w] many hats

it’s snowing … again. this winter season has officially compensated for the painfully embarrassing “winters” of years past. i simply mean to say that it hasn’t snowed like this in a very, very long time. in this day and age, i am more than happy to meander through a sea of puffy-whiteness to get from place to place. it’s not that i love chilly weather more than i used to, i honestly just think i dress myself better for it, as an adult. lots of layers. so many wonderfully warm layers. i am more of a hat person today than i’ve ever been before, and i’m not afraid to admit that a silent army of soft, multipurpose scarves have invaded my closet space. these wardrobe changes have definitely been positive life adjustments: cold weather doesn’t make me nearly as depressed as it once did, and i have a fantastical collection of vintage / interesting / beautiful wintertime accessories.

win-win-win.

weather wins, i win, and my closet wins.

the following photographs are of me.
in lots of hats.
please keep in mind, i was never very fond of these things before. my first tries consisted of struggling with angles and placement, run-ins with the dreaded “hat hair”, and a series of near-escapes {they were always flying off when the wind picked up – as though attempting to attain freedom from my “style”-challenged skull.}

still, i would like to think that i’m on my way to mastering . . .

well. while my original goal was not necessarily to fill this post with an silly amount of hat pictures, i certainly didn’t do much to stop it from happening. (these things just seem to have a way of writing themselves at times.) my adventure with this versatile, oftentimes-bohemian article of clothing has only just begun. thank god for gorgeous girls like jemima kirke {and her character, jessa, on girls} to keep me inspired and wanting more –
