A Girl of Many Hats

Cold nose, cold hands...
Hat: Complements of Hats In The Belfry
Tunnel Scarf: Knitted by me
Coat: H&M (two years old $70.00)
We finally got snow! There were blizzard conditions all day yesterday, and it was so beautiful. I love it when it snows out and everything that is ugly about the the city is blanketed in soft white. So pretty for about 24 hours. It was the perfect day to try out my new cloche from Hats In The Belfry. For a girl who usually grabs one of her boyfriends stretched out beanies before sprinting out of the house for work, this hat is very very fancy. I love how the grey in the flower (removable- it's a pin! it's a brooch! it's on my hat! no it's not!) matches my coat, which, depending on how I wear it can be very '20's or very '60's. Hats In The Belfry has some amazing pieces on their site, some straw hats I'm dying over for Spring!
Unlike the rest of me, my head stayed warm and dry. By the time I was finished taking photos my hands were frozen solid and I was skeptical if my camera would ever work again. February is always a snowy month here in Massachusetts, fingers crossed for more storms!
I added just a dash of color with my first successful knitting project: a tunnel scarf.

and because winter's not over yet...

The snow in your hair looks so lovely! or maybe its your hair in the snow? Not sure, either way I love it.

Alyssa said...

What a fabulous hat you've got on there! These pictures are really great, too... You look so peaceful (and maybe a little cold? :D )

Thanks for sharing!

Lovely snow pictures. Just beautiful!

Clare said...

p.s. I think Blogger is out to get us all. My word verification for my comment about your snowy pictures was "summer." Seriously, Blogger?

Charmalade said...

I'm such a fan of cloches, and that one looks great on you! Too bad its warmth couldn't spread to the rest of your body. :( I love the pop of color with the scarf!

I love this hat!! We got to leave early but by the time I got back to the South, the weather was almost clear out. =)

Katie said...

First of all you have amazing hair. second of all i just posted an outfit with a scarf similar to that... is it called an infinity scarf, a snood, or a tunnel scarf? or all of them...?

Orchid Grey said...

Katie, I think it's called all of those things!

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

That hat is awesome! Next time we get together, I want you do to my hair. :) If you're willing of course. And I do hope I get a chance to meet you again and talk more in-depth!

Ace said...

What an adorable hat. I always feel silly in hats. I've got so many, but I hardly ever wear them.

Spiffy said...

Super love your hat - that brooch is the perfect adornment :) I was just wondering what the pattern/method was for your scarf? I'm a bit of a newbie knitter so please excuse this potentially silly question lol.

whimsicalwardrobe said...

The hat is fabulous! I love that look. The coat and scarf are wonderful as well..I am so into this style. Beautiful!

hannah said...

Danielle said...

I'm glad it doesn't snow where I live. I don't know if I could handle it. Lol
