Wear It: WINTER GEAR (and straight hair!)

I keep forgetting that Wednesday is my “fashion” day so here’s a quick little look at my uniform for the next four months…

Last weekend my sister and I went shopping with my mom and both bought this hooded vest at Banana Republic. I don’t know about her, but I haven’t taken it off since. Since both my winter coats are (STILL) sitting in a garbage bag full of dry cleaning (for the last three months), this is currently my only defense against the elements.

And it doesn’t even defend my arms.

The very best thing about this vest is that the hood is big enough to cover my whole head, hair included! A rare find, indeed. I also really appreciate that the pockets are fleece lined so they’re toasty warm like mittens.

I’ve also used the unseasonably cold temperatures (19 degrees here in Charlotte this morning WHY) as an excuse to wear this ridiculous giant hat I bought last summer and have been hoarding until just the right moment… I think it’s cool, but my sister greeted me with, “What is this stupid hat?” so I knew I needed it to be cold enough that people judge you not on your style but on your ability to stay warm. This way if people think it looks stupid I can be like “It’s practical!” And if they think it looks cool (like the woman that stopped me at the bus stop to ask about it, bless you) I can be like “I did it on purpose because I am cool!”

And finally… I thought some of you might find interest in the fact that I got my bi-annual haircut last week, and it included a (very) rare blow out. RIP, styled hair. You will never look like this again…
