Stealing from the boys

I have not owned a baseball cap since I was a little kid. The lover of hats that I am, I never paid them mind; being focused on fedoras, floppy hats, and other headwear I deemed to be far more chic than the pedestrian ball cap.

However I was out shopping with a friend who told me of their desire to own a wool baseball cap, and then I tried one on in J.Crew. As you can imagine, I became smitten, years of baseball cap snubbing diminished, and I had to have one.

Rather than spending $40 on the J.Crew cap, I found this equally cute one from the San Diego Hat Co. at Zappos for $20 (including free overnight shipping). Buying the less expensive cap also meant I had $20 to spend on another J.Crew lookalike, this pave link bracelet from Target.

The bracelet looks gorgeous, and I really hope it holds up. My only complaint was the toggle clasp, which I immediately removed and replaced with a lobster clasp I picked up at Hobby Lobby for less than a dollar.

  1. You look so cute! The baseball cap suits you well! Funnily enough a baseball cap is the only type of head wear that I think suits me, ha ha. I don't have any fashion-y ones though

  2. Once again I am in awe of your hat wearing abilities - I could so never pull that off. And love the bracelet as well, I hope your clasp wizardry holds.

  4. Such a fun and cool look! I have been wanting a J. Crew style cap for a while but didn't want to pay the price. Thanks so much for finding a cheaper yet still chic looking alternative!

    I have been eyeing that bracelet in Target for a while, it's very beautiful I am just not sure I'd really wear it enough to get my monies worth.

  5. Gorgeous sweater!

  6. Wow, this outfit is perfect! you have that sweater from Kohls that i like and the baseball cap is wonderful because there is no engraving on it! Ha, maybe you can "embellish" the cap with a pin for another look.

  7. You look great. I love your top. I haven't owned a baseball cap since I was a kid either but it looks like I need to rethink that. I have also been keeping my eye out for a pave bracelet so glad to know I can find one at Target.

  8. The baseball cap looks really cute on you! And that bracelet is a perfect dupe for the JCrew one!

  9. That hat looks so cute on you! I love it with the pretty sweatshirt! I have always loved hats and I am so glad all of these new versions of caps are out now!

  10. Like you, I haven't owned a baseball cap since I was a kid - probably since the end of my t-ball career at age five, come to think of it. So far they really haven't been on my radar but you have me thinking twice about that... it's just a shame Zappos doesn't ship to Canada anymore! I have to admit, though, the part of this look that really caught my eye was your sequinned Chucks! Another brilliant Target collaboration, and you're lucky to have found a pair in your size!

  11. I love this whole outfit! It's fun to see you in such a casual, but glam look

  16. I have been loving the baseball cap look! I've been really into all hats in general lately. That cap looks adorable on you. Also, love those glittery shoes!


  17. Oh em gee! YES! I used to hate this trend. Really, I hated it until last month when I tried on a wool cap (like yours) and just realized how ridiculously cute it is! I love the look!

    And thank you SO much for the gift! It means so much!

  18. This outfit is soooo cute and perfect for the weekend.


  19. This look is so, so good! You're seriously the best at finding lookalike pieces and I love that you paired them all together in such a sort of glam-tomboy way!

  20. You look super cute in that baseball cap! I do not think I would look nearly that cute in a baseball cap!

  21. Love this look, from the baseball hat to the embellished sweatshirt! You look adorable! :)

  24. That's such a cute cap Lyddie! I have not had one in ages either, but I'm pretty sure that if I looked half as good as you do, I'd own one, but that's not the case, you make them so cute and chic!

  35. Yay! I love the baseball cap ;-) I'd never really thought about baseball caps until I saw the J.Crew ones. But yeah, I wouldn't have paid $40 for it either! (luckily I got mine on clearance) The one you found looks just as good! And I love the jeweled sweater!
