The funniest thing happened a few weeks ago.  It was an especially rare warm day here in early spring.  I walked into my *ahem* incredibly messy *ahem* closet and searched for my straw hat because I just knew that it was time to bring it out since the sun had shown it’s glorious face.  Well, upon finding it, I smiled in delight because it was crushed and not really wearable anymore.


I smiled…Why would I ever do that?!?

Well, in case you all have forgotten, I’m on this horrendous, possibly going to end it before the end of the year and not follow through because it’s not really bringing me joy, shopping ban for a year where I only have 4 hall passes (2 of which have been used—They were the Alberta Ferretti flats & the Tom Ford sunnies in this post).  Well, that being said, that doesn’t leave a lot of room for shopping for other items unless something gets ruined or someone else purchases it for me (and as an adult I’m not going to ask anyone to buy me anything).  You can read all about it here.

When I found my crushed hat in the depths of my closet, it met the criteria to be repurchased and not counted because it was essentially a replacement of the old one that I had.  I knew that this time I needed to find the perfect one.  I wandered into my favorite boutique that weekend to find this baby.  I know I’m going to wear it all spring/summer/ (and quite possibly) early fall long.  The best part of it is that it’s packable and can be folded (I know, I didn’t even know that there was such a thing either!) which means that it most likely won’t be ruined like my last one.  It looks fabulous with light colored sweaters and boyfriend jeans (like here!) and is absolutely perfect to be paired with dresses, skirts and shorts alike!  I’m so smitten!  I know that I’ll be wearing it all weekend long!

Hope your Friday has gone exceptionally well!
