Debut of the Straw Hat

Wednesday, August 05, 2009
This is my new hat. I love it! ....except I've only worn it twice now. It doesn't seem practical to wear a straw hat in the city......but I tried it today......and got several stares. At least my face was protected from the sun. But that's about it.. Maybe next summer, straw hat.

Wearing Gap Outlet straw hat ($13), American Eagle striped shirt ($7, 2 years ago), Wet Seal white skirt ($10), thrifted belt ($2), secondhand wedges ($7).

  12. Oh you should totally rock it! I think it looks wonderful and summery on you!

    In regards to the etsy shop: you should totally do it if you are interested in it. I love it....not too much financial gain thus far, but more of a creative outlet and hobby (which I need....I have a scientific job during the day)!

  13. they were looking at you because they wished they had that hat! I think it looks fabulous, I love your shirt and sandals. BTW, I have seen the northern lights and they are spectacular! It's too bad they only happen in winter because most people don't come on vacation here when it's cold!
