Nothing is more exciting to me than taking a chance on a look I’ve never really tried before, to find that I fall in LOVE with it. For me, that’s beanie hats. When my hair used to be really curly hats honestly just either didn’t look the way I wanted, or was an all-day commitment as taking it off left me with serious hat-head. But now that my curl is looser and I occasionally work in the straightened-hair look, as well, this slouchy beanie look works so well and I love it. Especially when it’s in my favorite color of brown AND handmade by a talented artist/friend (if you didn’t see my post on NewHumans knit wear, you can read more about it)!

While I often rock the beanie with leggings, a long loose sweater and some ankle boots, I really like the combination of the casual hat with the tucked in button down, pleated pants & vintage loafers. It’s a fun combination of different styles and textures put together, as well as masculine/feminine juxtaposition that I’m digging!
