Ooh La La: Styling a Beret

When we had our cold snap a month ago, I fell completely into a sartorial funk. It was so cold, I couldn't think about what to wear. I know, I know. I sound like a broken record, so I'll stop.

The reason I bring up the weather, though, is that in the cooler months my style incorporates a lot of hats. I love hats as you may have noticed both on here and on my Instagram profile.

Hats, like scarves, have a way of completing an outfit for me. When I'm getting dressed and something feels a bit off, it's usually a hat that I reach for first. They give any outfit that extra oomph to make them pop.

It took me a while to embrace the beret look, though. In truth, this one was bought for my daughter who needed it for her poetry cafe in fourth grade, two years ago now. She needed something that made her look like an artist. When she wore it, she said she felt French. Ha!

I'm not sure why I hesitated.  Maybe I felt a bit like I was trying too hard? I don't know. Whatever the reason, I really love the beret look now. A while back, I discovered a blogger new to me who styles a beret like nobody's business. Amy of A Fashion Nerd is worth clicking over to say hi. Then I started seeing them more and more on other blogger friends and I was hooked. The best thing is, you can find plenty of thrifted or vintage versions. 

So there you have it. While the weather remains cool enough to wear hats, I'll be throwing berets in the rotation.
