As the weather finally starts to thaw here in Iowa, I’m hoping that this will be my last post of the season to include a heavy winter coat. And since my mood has officially turned toward warmer weather, I’ve been gravitating toward the bright, cheerful colors of spring.

Case in point: this neon beanie and hot pink crossbody bag. I bought this beanie for $4 at a Walgreens at 2AM on an overnight road trip because I was freezing cold at the time, but I’ve since fallen in love with it for its perfect pink shade. It also brings me one step closer to accomplishing my #WearMoreHats initiative (in which I find and wear hats that fit my giant head), so that’s something!

This houndstooth Zara jacket has long been a favorite of mine, but I’m not so sure I’ll be sad to pack it away until next winter. For now, I’m looking forward to more bright colors, rising temps and sometime soon: shorts!


Navy + Black

As I’ve mentioned before, it’s hard for me to find hats that fit my extra-large head. But on a recent trip to Forever 21, I had a bit of a Cinderella moment with the lovely wool fedora pictured above. Picture this: I’m waiting in a long line to check out. I’m browsing the displays near the registers and notice a lone abandoned hat. I absently try on said hat. The second I put it on, I knew it fit perfectly. A quick glance in the mirror confirmed that it would indeed be coming home with me.

I love how structured the hat is, and I love the way it effortlessly combines black and navy. I decided to carry that color scheme throughout this errand-running outfit that—thanks to serious statement jewelry and a bit of faux fur—feels as luxurious as it is comfortable. Another of my recent accessory obsessions? These new BaubleBar eyelash ear jackets. I love that they add a unique wink to every outfit I wear, no matter the style.
