"If my heart was a house, you'd be home."



7 For All Mankind tank top. Joe's Jeans.  Abercrombie & Fitch jacket. H & M hat.
C & C California long sleeve top. Tarina Tarantino necklace. Marc Jacobs flats.






I absolutely love this hat--the first hat I've ever really loved.  In general, I really like hats.  I see them all the time and thinking, "OMG, that is so cute!" and then followed by, "...too bad I can't really wear it."  :o(

My problem is my hair--mostly, my bangs.  I've had bangs since I was four.  My bangs have definitely evolved.  After all, when I was little, literally 50% of my hair consisted of my bangs (hardly an exaggeration, I had the total china doll look going).  In middle school, I was like, "Who the heck has this much bangs??" so I eventually grew them all out and left a wispy amount to call my "bangs."  High school came and I had normalized my bangs.  At one point in time, I experimented with side swept bangs but found them too high maintenance for me.  The bangs you see now are what I've had for awhile and probably will continue to have.  I have a minor widow's peak which is actually a major pet peeve for me so I keep my bangs to camouflage them.

I feel like I'm okay with having bangs for the rest of my life, but when it comes to hats, my bangs are hindering.  If you want to talk about hat hair, hat bangs hair is awful!  Hence, why I can never wear hats.  That is, until I found this super cute H & M one!  Because of its slouchy style, I can wear without having my bangs in the way!  I absolutely love this hat.  It's super cute and gives me hope that there may be other hats out there I can wear without my bangs getting in the way.

I've had bangs forever too! I can totally sympathize with hat bangs hair--ugh! I definitely recommend Flapper's & Philosophers! It's actually a collection of short stories. Have a great weekend!

This entire outfit is adorable.

I totally get not wanting hat bangs! I normally just pin it. I, too, have a widows peak, but I think it's cute. ^_^
