a little color never hurt anybody!

quick post today.. saw this obnoxiously colorful clutch at charming charlie and HAD to have it.  not really sure where i'm gonna use it or when, but sometimes the best accessories are bought on impulse!

happy new year! [only 10 days late..]

happy new year!  i can't believe it's been over 2 months since i posted last.  i'm not really sure why, either.  i think it's because i really wasn't feeling inspired, but i am going to start up again!

i love hats, and never really thought i would!  but there's just something about a slouchy beanie or a fedora that just completes a look.  not to mention they can cover up a bad hair day in a flash.  at my internship they know me as "hat girl" since 9 times out of 10 i'm wearing a hat when i come in.. little do they know i'm just too lazy to do my hair [=  but here are some super cute examples of styles i love!
metallic thread beanie in rust: $5.80 from forever 21 
[PS this is a great neutral color!  it literally goes with anything.. teal, mustard, gray, black, emerald, you name it!]
open knit beret in taupe: $7.80 from forever 21
feathered houndstooth fedora: $12.80 from forever 21
[love the feather detailing on this one!  plus the houndstooth is totally retro]
