Outfit Post: Top Hat

Oct 29, 2014

I got this hat last year. I wore it a couple times but couldn’t get over Drew’s comment that it was my Indiana Jones hat.

This year, I’ve been breaking it out left and right and because of his comment, I’m considering dressing like my favorite Harrison Ford character for Halloween (seriously though, any one have any last minute tips cause I am struggling). Last week I wore it a little more casually but today I’m dressing it up a little. This little black dress was one of my best buys ever on ASOS. I’ve had it for a couple years now and I still turn to it when I’m coming down to the wire and still haven’t found something to wear. Clearly waiting until the last minute is a big problem for me.

Throwing on a hat can be a little daunting since you’re inevitably going to get a few looks and it’s definitely something we’re not all used to wearing on the regular. My tip is to keep the rest of the look simple so that the hat stands out but never looks cartoon-ish or costumey. Also, these suckers are WARM so you’ll want it to be a little brisk so you’re head doesn’t get all sweaty (gross, i know. sorry).

I’m thinking of breaking this look out again this weekend, albeit with tights since it’s finally getting a little chilly, for an engagement party for some friends. Despite being unprepared for almost everything, I am definitely prepared for my brother-in-law (and probably others) to give me a hard time about the hat. I’m thinking it will be something about Halloween being over so I can pack up my Carmen Sandiego costume but there’s also the chance for some safari comment. Either way, I’ll take it. Indiana Jones FTW.

Okay I’m off to tackle that inbox before doing cutting out early to tailgate for the UofL vs. FSU game tomorrow (celebrating my office’s third anniversary! woo hoo!). If you’re running around Papa John Cardinal Stadium tomorrow, we’ll be tailgating by Gate 1 – come say hey!

  2. You look great in that hat, and the color is perfect for this time of year. I’ve been wanting to invest in a hat for the colder month, I just need to break down and do it.
