The underestimated accessory

Yesterday morning I made the major mistake of stepping outside the house in dark jeans and my combat boots, completely oblivious to the heat I would be battling in about an hour. To not encounter such an atrocious situation, I swapped for something far more weather appropriate. I'll admit, I felt a bit odd wearing a skirt again without tights. Something I will have to get used to with these warmer, Southern California days. I will say, I find it humorous every time I wear this skirt, since I managed to incorporate something I originally made for a Halloween costume into something I use in my every day wardrobe.
 
(Nirvana t-shirt- gift, floral skirt- handmade, hat- Urban Outfitters, belt- forever borrowed from my grandpa's closet, purse- Maxx New York)
I truly love this brown fedora of mine. I find it extremely versatile, which is contradictory to how I thought it might be when I first purchased it from Urban Outfitters. Now I actually wear it a lot! 
I have an ongoing love for hats in general. I feel that their contribution to an outfit is almost underestimated. I am lusting for a delightful, little boater hat, such as the wonderful vintage find that I have seen Erin from calivintage wearing. If I had the money right now, I would definitely jump on buying this little ruby red number from Modcloth!

If you're having this sudden desire for these hats as well, I would definitely check out Modcloth's vintage section or browse through Etsy sellers where you're likely to find a wide selection of darling vintage pieces to sit atop your head.


Oh, and I almost forgot! I actually made myself a tiny pill box hat that I will be posting up with the video tutorial later in the week.
