One advantage of loose floppy hats is that they don;t mat your hair so badly. The advantage of the weather being 'can do a hat' as opposed to 'need a hat' is that your nose does not get red.
It may seem funny to wear a hat, gloves and shearling boots with no coat, but I was actually quite warm. Of course, I only walked the short distance from my car to the church that day. If I had to walk any longer, I would probably need a coat, but covering the extremities actually works quite well in non extreme temperatures. I did have a coat in my trunk, just in case, but I was fine without it.
Somebody mentioned to me wearing a button down blouse with the oversize merino pocket v-neck (my review here) and I wanted to try it. The polka dotted Blythe blouse (last seen here) turned out to be perfect and I loved wearing it with midrise cord toothpicks in salt (review here) . This also solved the problem with the color of the sweater. I love the color but it does not look so good with denim. The shape of the sweater just calls for a a pair of skinny pants and I decided that cords will be my answer. I also have a pair in light camel that should also work.

This outfit made me think of ice skating for some reason. Maybe if I replaced the Blythe with a cream turtleneck? I did not go ice skating for years but maybe I should, now that I have an outfit for it ;)
My necklace is also from J.Crew and I thought it added that sparkly, winter-y touch. My shearling MacAlisters are from last year (review here).
That's all folks!
What style hats do you wear when the weather turns colder?
Do you own the Midrise toothpick cords, oversize merino pocket v-neck or Blythe blouse in polka dots? How do you wear them?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
