Take me to the Street Market

Because that’s what I feel like doing when I wear this fedora. It’s the closest I’ve come to finding the perfect fedora that I’ve been searching for forever. I managed to find it for $15 on Goorin.com. It’s a little bit too tall, but it actually fits my small head, so I’m not going to complain too much about it:

 I know my blog hasn’t been extremely exciting the last little while. I’ve been struggling with a lot of personal things as of late. I’ve been making a lot of big decisions only to have them crushed by things that are not within my control (I really just have the worst luck). So deeply frustrating and I can’t help but feel dejected most days. If it all doesn’t get even just a little bit better soon, me and the “man upstairs” are going to have to have a little chat.

Saturday Morning

Nothing super special about today’s outfit, but there’s something really soothing about waking up [semi-] early on a Saturday morning, grabbing your laptop or a book, and heading to the local coffeeshop. It’s wonderful in the warmer weather to sit on a patio and just people watch, but also in the winter-y months to pull yourself out of bed, put on your coziest hat and run out the door to grab that warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate. This time of year in D.C., some days it’s still just kind of cool enough in the mornings to be able to wear jeans and a light cardi (which you will have to tear off by noon):

Don’t let me fool you. I’m actually actually working today, not going off to some coffee shop to read leisurely. =/

This is one of my favorite outfits. It’s simple and easy, looks great, and perfect for a dinner out with one (or a few) of your favorite people. If I could add one more piece of jewelry to this outfit it would probably be a mid-length gold chain. But seeing as how I can’t find one, just pretend that there’s one there and we’ll both be happy. =)
