Day 2 of rain and grossness also brought with it some cooler temps - see, there's always a silver lining! Because of the rain I decided to wear a hat yet again. I don't want to get any of my wigs caught in a downpour (which would totally be fine for them, I'd just have to get them restyled), so I let the small side-pony show. My hair is getting long enough that pretty soon I don't think that I will be comfortable showing the ponytail. I am in the process of purchasing a new wig - a 'hat fall', which is basically a wig with hair removed from the hairline until the crown in a 'U' shape. It is designed to always be worn with scarves or hats so that you don't have the bulk of too much hair on the top your head. I'll post pics when I make my purchase:)
Because of the cool temperatures I decided to layer a bit. I chose a breezy navy and white striped short-sleeved blouse to go under the navy light weight sweater. I wanted to add some interest to the layers, so I combined the pattern with a solid. The dark wash denim pencil skirt kept the outfit in the same color scheme. I added the brown belt and necklace as a contrasting color and the oxfords matched with the accessories as well. I have had this navy beret-type hat for years, and I never knew how to wear it. I always thought it looked foolish and kinda jester-y, but I felt inspired today and decided that I can definitely pull it off. I firmly believe that if you exude confidence, you can really pull off anything you want to - so go ahead, rock the item you never thought you could!!
