Wardrobe | Beware of Flying Hats on Windy Days


Oh how quickly I forget about the blustery days that come in the Fall. The winds blow fiercely, bringing in cooler air and swiftly removing hats and perfect curls in the process. Before I stepped out of the house today, I was reveling in the perfect vintage hairdo I had finally achieved, and decided to top off the look with a pretty black hat. Silly me. The first decision in planning any outfit should always be the weather. And hat pins are no match for Autumn winds. Next time I spend this long on curls, I’ll be checking the weather forecast.

P.S. I know it doesn’t look super windy in these photos, but that’s because I spent 3x longer than usual patiently working with the wind to get these photos. :)

    You are soooo gorgeous!!! I love the makeup you do, the hair styles and then the clothes just top it all off for glamour.
    And windy days are such a pain. Those are the days that I most want to wear a hat too! Good thing your hat didn’t fly away:)

    So weird. I have that same coat! It’s the same crazy pattern, but it has flounced sleeves. I love the way you styled it. I am always wondering how I should wear it :-)
