Today I went out of the house for the first time in six days. I’ve been in bed with a horrible cold for an entire week. And frankly, I really didn’t feel up to going out but I was low on food when I got sick and during the week managed to eat every last morsel in the house. I knew if I didn’t grocery shop today I wouldn’t have time during the week so it was now or never. Needless to say, the last thing I felt like doing was getting dressed. I didn’t even put on a speck of make-up. Since I couldn’t go naked (nor would I want to) I threw on one of my favorite pairs of jeans that were purchased a while back at Arden B. They were on sale for $12 and were so cheap that I ended up getting two pairs, one to hem for flats and one to hem for heels. The best part of these jeans is that they have an elastic waistband. Go ahead, laugh. I’ll wait. Done? Ok, so I laughed too, at first, but after I put them on they were so comfortable I didn’t care. The v-neck shirt I’m wearing came from my husband. Black is always a safe go-to especially when you’re feeling gross and dumpy. It always looks classy and hides flaws (well, mostly – let’s ignore my little pooch hanging out). And the hat is one of the hats from last week’s Stylist’s Secret post (burgundy fedora, last one in the third row). I ordered it in black and absolutely love it. My main point in showing you what I’m wearing today relates to that post. I want to make sure all of you understand how just putting a cute hat on can make an otherwise average outfit fashionable. If I had the energy to really get dressed today I probably would have worn better shoes and put on some jewelry but since we don’t always have time to do that (or energy) I thought it would be helpful to illustrate how much a hat can add style all by itself.
