Wool and Veils

Hey there lovelies!!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I had a great weekend full of relaxation, fun with family, and I even won a chili cook off! :-)  This week is due to be a bit stressful though, as I try to finish a website at work, and prepare for my final portfolio presentation, required to graduate in a couple of weeks (insert nervous emoticon, lol).




It doesn’t happen too often, but we actually got some colder weather over the last week and half, so I’ve been taking full advantage of it by pulling out my layers and booties (I have yet to find a boot for wide calves that I personally like).  I was on the verge of having a bad hair day, due to running out of time before church last Sunday, and I remembered that I own one hat, and it’s wool with a veil!  Oh how I wish I could fit all of my hair in more hats, but in the mean time, I intend to wear this one out this season.






Shirt:  Merona; Skirt:  Mossimo- Target; Hat:  Michael Howard- vintage (check out these options); Coat:  Carol Horn- vintage (get it on ebay); Booties:  Sam Edelman- ℅ Shopbop (sold out, but you can get them here)



You may remember from this post, that I’ve been searching for a black bootie for sometime now to no avail, but I found these Sam Edelman beauties on Shopbop a few weeks ago, and they arrived just in time for the cold weather.  I think I may have already gotten my monies worth because I’ve worn then so many times already, lol.


Do you wear hats?  What’s your trick for a bad hair day?   

Style Tip:  A coat in a bold color (or several colors) will keep you warm and make a statement when the temperatures drop.

    This outfit is sensational. I love the little nods to bygone eras (the veiled hat, the Victorian-style booties, the pencil skirt) mixed in with thoroughly modern touches. Gorgeous!

    You look amazing and so stylish!! I LOVE everything about this look. The booties are officially on my wish list or at least a pair very similar. You know im all about hats, esp vintage ones! Love the veil.
