Brr.  It's starting to get colder here, and I think I'm adapting.  It's finally holidays-y enough that I think it's appropriate to start wearing this red velvet hat that I picked up last summer!  I'm not usually a fan of pillbox hats, but I think this one is just un-pillbox-y enough to make it work.


 I'm trying to take a cue from Jessica of Chronically Vintage and wear a few more colors from time to time.  I'm not sure whether or not that's really working out, but it's a fun experiment to think about!  I managed a whole four colors in this outfit:  Red, pale aqua, dark grey, and gold.
