The Frivolous Things In Life

This morning I was in an easy, breezy mood.  So I went with it.  
I've always wanted to own a hat just like this but I always thought having one would be a complete waste of money.  And you know what?  It is.

But who cares!
 Oh what a bore my Tiny Closet would be if I never exercised frivolity!  
Sure, a closet filled with clothing and shoes that went with everything and could be worn all year round would be convenient and economical and blah blah blah...

But I would be lacking that special, tingly naughty feeling you get when you know you bought something that completely stands out and makes no sense to have.   So I believe that to have a complete closet, one needs a few outlandish, indulgent, absolutely splendid items ...that don't go with anything!
My earrings, by the way are from H&M.  You can see them up close and personal in an earlier post, here.
 sandals: Dolce Vita / top: AllSaints / earrings: H&M
Can you imagine this thing bobbing through the streets in Seattle?  Ha!  Me neither and I'm okay with that.  The next time I wear this will be when I'm back in paradise.  That's what makes it so special.

Like my new hat?  Leave me a comment!

  6. I love your hat and your hair. Having just done the "Big Chop" myself I plan to adorn plenty of hats this summer for sure. Your look is great inspiration to just be free to wear things any way you like. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you, Free Spirit! And congrats on the Big Chop. This is my 2nd time doing it - it's quite an amazing experience and my natural style actually inspires my wardrobe. Though I like just washing and going, you'll find that you can do soooo much more than that so good luck and thank you for visiting!
