Undercover

When I wear hats, it’s usually for one of a couple of reasons…

1. I’ve gone a few too many days without washing my hair. (#sexy)

2. I just left the gym or Soul Cycle and would prefer to not talk to anyone I know while looking like a sweaty mess. (How does this always happen in New York? I thought this was supposed to be a big city. It’s inevitable that you will run into everyone you know when you look your worst.)

3. My roots are halfway down to my ears and I can’t get in to my colorist for a few more days.

So, basically, hats are my way of covering up hair havoc. I believe this particular occasion was a case of Scenario #3.

    I’m with you! Hats are my weekend staple because I’m usually too lazy to fix my hair on the weekends. You look adorable in that hat/scarf combo!

    As of late, hats are pretty much my main accessory on the weekend – mainly due to reason #1 – it’s healthy not to wash your hair, right? 🙂

    I feel the same way about hats. Usually i fall victim of #1 haha. Thankfully JCrew has recently come out with some really great baseball caps that don’t make me feel guilty for running around town without washing (or brushing) my hair.

    Whenever I wear hats it is for reason #1 – those days when washing/styling my hair just sounds way too time intensive. Yours pairs perfectly with your layered outfit and plaid scarf – so cute!

    Well good thing you look adorable in a hat, love the booties and stripe +plaid combo!

    One of my good friends always says that when she wears a baseball hat to class it means she had a long night & a little bit too much to drink hahaha!

      All of the rings are Capwell! Except the Bow midi ring… That’s from a little shop in New York called Bash & Bow in Gramercy. 🙂
