I don't often wear hats, mostly because I'm afraid of the dreaded "hat-head" when I take it off (I have the type of hair that immediately fills with static or gets a strange ripple across the back). But I keep seeing this hat around and I was just positive it would suit me. Technically it's a cap, it has a lot of different names one of which a military cap. During the summer I couldn't find what I was looking for (cotton/twill), but then the other day at H&M the winter (wool/polyester) version popped up and I was sure to buy it! H&M call it a flat cap but if you look up a flat cap, it's similar but not quite the same. Maybe it's just the female version. Needless to say it's super cute! I wore it the first opportunity I could, and my niece's soccer in the middle of December was just the right excuse. I'm sure it helped keep me warm, hat's are there to serve a purpose. But I have to be honest and say I wore it purely because I liked how it looked, how vain of me! Sure times will arise that I'll actually use it to stay warm, giving me more options than the one white knit beanie I own. Actually I own other hats, but I don't think I'll be wearing the leopard print cuffed hat I bought in the 90's that's still lurking in one of my drawers.
Which reminds me, why do we keep these things? Anyway, I just wanted to show you all my new winter hat, and the one I hope to find during the summer. Speaking of summer hats, I still regret not buying a straw cowboy hat with seashells I fell in love with while dress shopping in 2006! This doesn't happen to me often, but it was one time I wish I hadn't taken the cheap road and put the hat back on the shelf. Maybe the next time I'm back in Florida I'll find another one. And if there are any men reading this post, I promise you there is a difference between the two hats pictured besides the color, ha-ha!
