Do You!

Processed with VSCOcam with p5 preset

So, I bought this hat off of Urban Outfitters, this past spring or summer. I just fell in love with it and had to have it! It was on sale, so I was like SCORE! Once, I received the hat, I was excited to try it out, and when I put it on my head I felt so ridiculous! For starters, I do have a small head. No, hat ever fit correctly on my head my entire life. But, this hat DID fit my head it was the brim that threw me off. I just put it up in my closet and told myself not to worry that I can try it again when its cooler. It will look cuter with boots and a oversized sweater. Behold, the cooler months are here. I get out the hat try it on and the same feeling comes over me: “you look ridiculous”. And then I realized “you know what, I don’t think I am hip enough for this hat”

I even went as far as to research how to rock a hat. And you know what I found you need to posses? Confidence. And that resonated with me. I felt ridiculous because I lacked the confidence to wear it. So, as you can see from the image above, I took a photo {selfie} of myself wearing the hat and showed my friends. What didn’t help was that my husband said: “why are you wearing a hat? You don’t wear hats.”  Which made my confidence wane. But, thanks to a few friends, they said it looks cute and I don’t look stupid.

And you all may be wondering, why I am so worried about wearing a hat so much. Because, for years I have been eyeing these hats and they always look so awesome on people and I always wanted one. But, I either couldn’t find one that I liked or they were too big on my head. Plus, I am tired of wearing beanies all the time and wanted something a little more fashionable.

I really didn’t think this post through too much. It was something on my mind and I know there are a few people who are afraid to wear hats especially the newer type of “hip” hats we see people wear today.

They are awesome though! So, muster up some confidence and put on a hat.
