hats off

 hat: Nordstrom // coat: Old Navy // jeans: Paige  // booties: Wanted shoes // lipstick: Volcanic by L'Oreal // corgi: my own

I couldn't resist the cheesy title but honestly I have been searching for the hat for quite some time. I found some online but committing to buying one never happened. (and then they would be out of stock. womp, womp.)

So I stuck it on my Christmas list, but I think most people felt hesitant about taking on the burden of buying a "floppy-but-not-too-floppy, felt/wool hat."

Rightfully so, as it was an incredibly vague description of what I wanted. Yet when I found this one at Nordstrom, I knew it was the one. (Especially as it was on sale and I had a gift card.)

I love it when it works out like that.

 xo, erika

  9. Hi Erika!

    This coat is ah-mazing!! It totally caught my eye straight away - I'm in love with coral colors like this. And those ruffles are so feminine and pretty! I adore the pop of color lipstick you're wearing with it too.

    Thanks so much for linking up this week, I'm now following you on GFC too and really look forward to seeing you again next Wednesday for Style Sessions!

  10. that is the perfect hat, but that coat is absolutely made for you! the color is perfect with your skin tone/hair.

  11. Adorable! I just pinned this super cute ensemble to my style board. Love the color + style of your coat — and love your hat. I so wish I could wear hats, but they look terrible on me, I think. ;)
    Found you via The Influence Network. So glad to connect!

  12. Awesome find! I love when you have a vague idea of what you want, but then find that piece that actually is exactly what you want! :)
