Wardrobe Wednesday- Chambray Romper

March_16f

Through this New Year's resolution of mine to wear more hats, I have discovered a few things. One, I love hats and shopping for them is an addicting challenge. Two, other people love hats just as much as I do- if not more so. And also, wearing fun hats is a good way to turn strangers into friends.

Oh, and the revelations continue! Wearing hats is sort of like having tattoos, in that sometimes people will turn to stare, and most of the time people will approach you to tell you how much they adore it. It's not customary to keep one's head covered these days, you see. And so it takes a bit of courage to don a hat. At least, at first. I think I'm beginning to become quite at ease (and maybe obsessed?) with this new fashion habit.

Oh, I almost forgot that I titled this post about the romper, not the hat. The romper is cute too, I suppose. Although a bit wrinkley from all of the romping. Or maybe more so from the sitting for four hours at the coffee shop. Four hours! Yeep! I better go get some homework done. During Spring Break. On a sunny day. Ayayay. (Oh, and Happy St. Patty's day! I'm actually not doing homework today, but attending a parade and drinking lots of beer.)

    You remind me of a female Maurice Chevalier if he wore shorts. Cute!

    I love this outfit! It’s a little bit Oxford and Cambridge, if you see what I mean. But much prettier of course!
    You’re right. it’s a shame people don’t wear hats so much anymore. It’s an overlooked accessory! Xx

    It definitely does take a bit of courage to don a hat! I’m glad you found it because I get much too self-conscious and aware of how there is a hat on my head when I do wear one. I’ve only recently tried it and was continually taking it off and putting it back on out of fickleness.
    You wear yours so wonderfully, though! I can totes see why people were coming up to compliment you.
