Usually when I take outfit photos in the winter, I take my coat and other various outerwear off just long enough to take the pictures – during which time I try really hard not to look grumpy and cold – then I bundle back up and jump into my warm car/apartment.
But on Friday…THIS IS ALL I WORE. No coat, no hat, no gloves, no snow boots. It’s a miracle, I tell ya. I’m not going to declare it spring time yet, but I will declare it time to consider not totally giving up on life anymore. Do you know what people not giving up on life wear? Yellow lace and blue suede shoes. That’s a fact.

I’m glad everybody liked my midi skirt yesterday! You were probably hoping I would remix it for day 4 of Take One, Pass it On…sorry to disappoint, but I went with the shoes instead. Don’t worry; I promise you’ll see the skirt again soon!
But I would like to point out that I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone 2 outfits in a row: first the midi skirt, and now a baseball cap. I’ve probably worn a baseball cap sometime in my life but I couldn’t tell you when. Let’s just say that in the Spice Girls version of my life (which I think about often), I would never be Sporty.
I don’t know why, but I was a little nervous about wearing this hat all day at school. Maybe it’s because I don’t wear hats very often. I had to keep reminding myself that people wear baseball caps inside all the time. For some reason my head just felt so conspicuous. One person told me they liked my hat, but other than that, no one said anything. That could mean one of two things: (1) There was absolutely nothing strange about my wearing the hat, or (2) I looked so weird in the hat that everyone was afraid to comment on it. Like maybe they assumed I had a giant zit on my forehead or I accidentally shaved the top of my head so they didn’t want to ask me about the hat for fear of making me tell the embarrassing story.
Am I overthinking this? Most likely. Take to the comments and tell me the truth – am I pulling off the hat?!

The first time I wore this blazer (not long ago) you guys pretty much FLIPPED OUT in the comments gushing over how great this faux-leather-sleeved baby is. Well, alrighty then. Point taken. I will wear it again. I knew I had to wear it soon because before too long, a blazer will just be that thing that makes it hard to put on a winter coat. (Picture Ralphie’s brother in A Christmas Story: “I can’t put my arms down!”) But right now it’s fantastic fall so I can wear my fantastic blazer. And I can wear it with a polka dot dress and pink shoes, both of which are also fantastic.
Let’s make it a goal to wear this one more time this month. What should I wear with it? You guys have my wardrobe memorized at this point, right? Help a sister out.
