The Military Cap

Dorfman Pacific Scala Military CapThis may come as a shock to some of you but I love hats!  That’s right…  love them!  I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember. My dad has always been a hat lover (he never leaves the house without one) so I suspect I got that gene from him!

Anyway, the crazy thing is… even though I completely adore hats, I never seem to wear them for my posts! I think in my mind I’ve created this rule that outfit posts should focus on the clothes!  But that rule (which I didn’t even know I consciously had) is completely ridiculous!  Hats are such a great accessory and an essential statement of personal style (in particular MY personal style)!

So, when Dorfman Pacific offered me this SCALA Cadet military cap, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to start showing some love for hats on the blog!

Dorfman Pacific Scala Military CapI must admit that I really LOVE this hat!  It is absolutely my style!   It’s super cute, comfy, well made, and quite versatile.  And it’s offered in a variety of colors and reasonably priced!   I already know it will quickly become one of my favorites.  In fact, I may have to pick up a couple of other colors!  Be sure to check out Dorfman Pacific when you get a moment too (I’ve seen quite a few other hats that may get some love from me soon!!)

DSC_0043If you are a regular reader of the blog, you know that I’ve been feverishly trying to get all of my last winter weather items in before the official start of spring.  Obviously, I am very quickly running out of time so this may very well be my last post where I feature something that is truly winter-esque!  I have to admit though that I am  a little over winter anyway.  It’s been a huge tease all season and now as we get close to the end….  it decides to show up.  Yep, I’m over it — I’m ready to start tackling those spring trends!!

DSC_0013But until then…  I thought I’d feature my final winter look.  I picked up this faux

fur from Nordstrom Rack prior to the end of the year last year.  At about $35, I thought it was a steal!  Mind you…  it is a little big and the sleeves are unusually long (note the photo where I mysteriously look like I have no right hand!!)

DSC_0016But overall, I like the jacket.  I mean it’s certainly not bad for $35 bucks!  I also love these leopard booties.  I decided to pair the two together just to give the look a little more edge.  While I am retiring the fur for awhile, please know you’ll be seeing much more of the booties!
