Ode to My Black Hat (And A Furry Friend)

This post goes out to my trusty black hat because:
  • It goes with everything.
  • I can put it on without even looking in the mirror.
  • It fits just right on my head and doesn't blow off when the wind is being nasty.
  • It makes me look like a member of American Horror Story's Coven.
  • It cost only $14.95 when its original price was $39.95.
While I'll soon have to return this beauty into my closet when it becomes late spring and summer, I will always have it on the back of my mind even while I wear my newest straw fedoras and sun hats.

I also wanted to introduce my latest friend, Pooky aka Roxy. This furball is my brother and sister-in-law's cocker-spaniel-cross that they adopted while living in China; she was originally named Roxy but was renamed after it became clear that she resembled the beloved teddy bear of the cartoon fat cat, Garfield (look at those adorable paws!). Check out her very own Instagram account here.

I'm very fortunate to be surrounded by a wonderful group of positive and inspiring friends. So when I get an opportunity to show my appreciation for them, I make sure that they know how much I adore them! Jasmeen of Keeping Up With Jasmeen is one such friend who I decided to feature on Urbanebloc this week for my first "Fashionista File." You will see that her fantastic style is worth highlighting! If you wish to check out the full feature, which includes both outfit details and Jasmeen's take on style and shopping, click here or on the images.
