The Perfect Beanie
Who else has been freezing cold around here? Personally, I have been L-O-V-I-N-G it. Winter is by far my favorite season and I love freezing temperatures and snow (which we’ll hopefully get soon!). With the cold temperatures, I’ve been pulling out my scarves, wool coats & socks, and gloves. But the one thing I didn’t have? A beanie. I’ve never had much luck with beanies (I must have a funny shaped head), they always just look ridiculous on me. I recently went on the hunt for the perfect beanie, or at least the perfect beanie for my odd-shaped head. Of course, I found one at my favorite department store, Nordstrom.
The outfit was basically built around the beanie, now my prized possession. I wanted a super casual and laid-back look with a little bit of sparkle, because who doesn’t love sparkle? What this outfit ended up being was more of an ode to my high school days – back then I basically lived in Converse and my letterman’s jacket. Call me a dork, but I felt just as bad ass wearing this letterman style jacket as I did my real one back in high school.
Even though I’m still constantly mistaken for a teenager, I can’t believe I’ve been out of high school for 6 (going on 7 years) already! Time sure does fly.
