Remember how in a surprising turn of events, I won a hat? Well it arrived, and while my outfit today was decidedly “roll out of bed too late, have five minutes to eat breakfast and get dressed before I go crashing out the door to class” with a good dash of “I need to do laundry”, I’ve been sporting it around the house all day! It was snowing, so I didn’t want to wear it outside and get it soggy. It’s great, and it fits perfectly! Thanks again, Clare!
Unfortunately, every picture my charming photographer took looked at least somewhat, and often completely, ridiculous. I am less than photogenic, so I’ve quite a habit of looking deliberately goofy as a cover for my lack of photogeneity. This is less than helpful for blogging, as I am not tremendously inclined to post pictures of me doing a silly dance on the internet. The problem is, this is one of the less ridiculous looking pictures! Perhaps I need a new photographer, a better camera (the response time on my camera is ridiculously slow), or both.
I think this hat would look really good with a couple of my sundresses (which, sadly, are not entirely practical for wearing these days). Or paired with a cardigan and a floaty skirt, perhaps, and wedge shoes. Do you have other suggestions?
As for the t-shirt, I silk screened it myself a few years ago. I sometimes feel a bit self-conscious wearing it (it’s a linguistic, scientific, AND culinary play on words, and as such is rather dorky), but I get such a kick out of the sheer nerdiness of it that I wear it anyway.
Also, look how pretty it was here this afternoon! I love the look of big fat snowflakes falling, and this picture (taken out my kitchen window) doesn’t do it justice. And admittedly the buildings behind around mine are not entirely picturesque.
