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.

  3. This look is really nice :)
    The skirt is so cool and the hat is amazing :)
    And the dog is so cute. Oh, I would lvoe to have a dog but my parents don't like dogs so much (well, they like the old dog that my grandmother had and they say no dog could be so great and amazing and all the nice stuff like that one, so they don't want one) and also the dog would be really poor because we have a cat that's really arrogant and the dogs from our neighbors are afraid of her :D

  13. I recently bought a similar hat from Forever 21. I'm excited to wear it before the weather gets too warm. And omg, you do not look like someone from that show haha. You look way too chic and trendy. I can't even watch previews for that show because it freaks me out so much. I really love the mixing of prints with the striped top and skirt. The denim vest is a fun and casual cover up. And wow, that puppy is sooooo cute!! Ahh! I love dogs so much. I wish I had one. What a cutie and the perfect accessory for your outfit : )
