It’s always such an ordeal to find the perfect hat for oneself but I finally found mine. I couldn’t be any happier with this fedora that is slightly reminiscent of a fisherman’s hat. I’ve tried on countless hats over the years and bought many but this is truly the first time I’ve been completely satisfied with a hat purchase. Would it be a selfish thing to wish for yet another perfect hat? Maybe in brown or taupe? Ah, who am I kidding. Black is best.

Separate or together, I will be abusing them all winter long. How many different way can they be styled without one getting sick of them? Hmm… challenge accepted (I’ve been doing a How I Met Your Mother marathon and Barney is influencing my word choices)!

La Boulange

Apparently it’s a huge chain in SF and has numerous locations all over the districts. I can’t believe that I just noticed it! I can’t say much about the coffee because I forgot to order it after all the food I ordered but will definitely be going back to check it out. I was really excited for the french onion soup but it was sadly lukewarm and the cold wind outside chilled it instantly. Boo.

I love the over the knee boots but sometimes it can be hard to pull off in a casual manner, especially if its heeled. I can always put on some pants to tone it down but since I rarely like to wear long pants, I went with the usual black shorts and a long sleeve with a comfortable fit to tone down the boots. I think I could have done a white top with a tighter fit for more of a going out look but I was (smartly) dressed to eat a lot. 🙂

My feet are killing me!
P.S. If you ever have to dance with heels all night, make sure to pack some Moleskin by Dr. Scholls. Best stuff ever for heel chafing. Really made my nights in vegas much more bearable. Now if only I can figure out how to make the balls of the feet more comfortable…

This may sound silly but that Mayle tag (above) is what ultimately convinced me to buy this dress.  I love cameos and seeing a cameo tag on the Mayle dress made me think it was fate for me to buy it.  A bit silly but, nonetheless, still a great dress.  Win win situation for me!

This gray dress is a great winter staple.  The thick fabric is pretty warm and the color is a neutral that pretty much goes with anything.  I really love how the dress hangs on my body without being too bulky.  Surprisingly, this dress is pretty unforgiving when it comes to packing on extra bulge on the body or panty lines.  Everything just shows right through the outline.

When I wore this outfit Sunday morning, I was dead tired from a weekend of unexpected partying with friends.  I wore the hat and sunglasses to cover up the aftermath of a rough weekend.  Hats and sunglasses really do hide everything!  =]
