Boldly

You know how much I love hats. I have about a dozen and I want to wear them all the time. But there are times when I still will feel a bit self-conscious about wearing one. I love how this one worked with the look, somehow bridging the gap between the light floral and the tough leather, however I only had it on for these photos. The rest of the day it got left in the car. Hopefully next time I decide to put it on, I will feel confident enough to wear it all day.

  11. It's funny how we all seem to love hats but feel a bit odd wearing them - I think it's because so few people really do. It's odd being the only person wearing at hat within a five mile radius, especially when you go indoors and then have to not only take it off, but figure out how to carry it around in a way that isn't awkward. Suffice it to say I sympathise. But you wear hats beautifully, so you should definitely take them out as often as you want to :)

  19. Next time you should wear it all day. I love hats too! I wore my black one (similar to yours) in San Fran over the weekend and it was super windy. It blew off my head as I was crossing the street. Like something from a sitcom. But I put it back on and kept it moving. Love my hats too much to let wind stop me. :)

  26. Love this hat on you! It goes perfectly with the outfit. Also - I understand why you didnt wear the hat during the day, cause I too get conscious of wearing things that are considered normal in blogosphere, but something out of this world in real life. But I have made a promise that it's my style, and if somebody does not understand it, it's their problem not mine You should do the same, cause you have an amazing sense of style! :)

  30. I think you wear hats so well! I think I've said it before but I look utterly ridiculous wearing them. Wanna play dress up, anyone???

  31. Aw, well you'll be gutsy enough to wear that hat one day! I absolutely adore it on you though, Lyddie, and I mean that, I do! <3 I know the feeling of not being entirely sure to wear something. I have things that don't even leave the house, eep! ;) shh

  35. Superb look - the subtle dress and the tough jacket go great together.
    I have issues with hats too. I love them but feel like everyone is looking at me when I am wearing it.
