Road Trip (See Jane Wear)

Mossimo (Target) hat, J Brand jeans (via Gilt), J Crew top, F21 sweater, Bakers shoes, Chloé bag, TWO Goody hairties

On Monday, my sisters, mom, and I piled into the car to embark on a lengthy 1+ hour journey to Troy, MI--home of the Somerset Collection (i.e. my favorite mall).  I wasn't having the greatest hair day, so I decided to cover it up with a hat.  If there's one thing I have trouble wearing, it's hats.  Maybe it's my face or perhaps it's the shape of my head that doesn't quite mesh with head-toppers; whatever it is, I can't seem to wear hats without feeling totally self-conscious.  I found this ski cap at Target last week and when I tried it on, I didn't hate what I saw so decided it had to be fate.  It'll still take some getting used to, but perhaps I can use this opportunity to explore further into the world of hats.


Are you a hat person?

**Disclaimer:  we didn't pile into an RV to go to the mall--it's actually my parents' next door neighbor's RV.  It's just an appropriate coincidence that I was standing in front of it before our "road trip."

Be sure to check out my giveaway with Wish clothing that ends Friday, too!

  4. This outfit is perfect! I love it, from head to toe. The toque (what we call your hat in Canada) is a nice addition. And yes, I am a MAJOR hat person! They're stylish and extremely convenient for bad hair days, don't you think? I hope you're enjoying your holidays : )

  6. Haha, I thought that was your RV and that you ladies did some serious shopping if you had to haul it home in an RV!
    Cute outfit and although I have never been a hat person, I like yours + the styling, so I will have to reconsider....

  7. I love hats but hats to you are sunglasses to me. I takes me forever to find a pair that I think look midly decent. and then I usually break them a week later somehow lol.

  8. I love hats and the target one fits you perfectly. Your whole look is what I am lacking. I really need to punch up my casual looks. Lately casual to me have been sweats and you just can't go anywhere looking like that...

  17. Great photos.. very cute.

    I have that same problem.. hats don't look good on me either. I have an Aldo black knitted one from a few years ago that looks like a baseball hat. And it's the only one I can wear. I always look like a dork wearing it lol.

  25. Ha- I was wondering about the RV. This is such a cute outfit. I don't think the hat looks weird- I'm like that too, just because I hardly ever wear hats I think they look weird when I finally put one on.

  37. Hahaha, i'm glad you clarified about the RV...I was waiting to read about alllll that you bought, lol. Super cute casual outfit, and I think that hat looks great on you. I like hats but I can def only pull of certain silhouttes of them. Head shape plays a large role.

    Happy New year!
