Sometimes I fall in love with inanimate objects.
Take for example, this hat.
It was swoon at first sight and before anyone could have realized I had already imagined at least a dozen different outfits to wear it with.
I knew this it could transform me into a 70's style bohemian in a sheer instant.
Yet, when I dressed this morning, I decidedly left the hat off.
Even though I think it is complete perfection with this look.
Why did I omit the hat?
Simply because it's alot for this town I live in.
Does that even make sense?
Although I live a relatively short distance from NYC, we are light years apart in style.
Being dressed up means the other moms at school might wear heels with their velour tracksuit.
Yes, you read that correctly.
On a regular basis I am way overdressed in comparison to everyone else.
Not that it matters much, I still live in the same town I grew up in and I was always known to be avaunt garde ~ a free spirit marching to her own drum.
But this magnificent piece of millinery would draw a bunch of unwanted attention at the elementary school pick up.
All of that aside, I continue to make purchases like this regularly, because I know I will wear them someday.
Just not to school pick up.
Do you fall in love with items or styles even though wearing them might be out of your comfort zone?
