Good Morning + Happy Blogmas Day 2! 🙂

Day 2

As a quick disclaimer, not all Blogmas posts will be holiday related [although most will]. 😉 With that said, I have another mix + max post to share with you today — and the shining star of this outfit is a fabulous floppy hat!

Floppy Hat 1

 Last January, my parents  went to Mexico with my sister. While they were shopping, they came across this hat + knew that I’d *love* it. They brought it home + sure enough — I was obsessed! I’m picky about hats, but this one happened to fit perfectly. The right amount of snug + the right amount of flop. 😉

As much as I adored it, it’s literally been sitting in my closet for nearly a year now. When I started this floating series, I knew that I’d want to style it at some point.

For shoes, I went with my tan OTK boots!

To me, it doesn’t get any more cute, comfy, or autumn-y than this!

I love challenging myself to mix + max. There’s no better feeling than pulling dust bunny items out of your wardrobe  + discovering that wearing them is much easier than you thought!

Do you have a really cute article or accessory that you never wear?!


PS: I am SO happy that so many of you are excited about and/or are participating in Blogmas! All of the posts are getting me into some serious holiday spirits. As I mentioned yesterday, I’ll be doing 4 giveaways this month! Find all of the details here]!  🙂

  1. I am loving everything about this outfit! I wish it was still warm enough here for me to wear something similar! Although that sweater does look cozy 🙂

    • Aw, thank you so much!! The weather is sure to turn chilly any minute now, but we’ve been so lucky lately…50’s-60’s most days! Definitely a treat before the snow hits. 🙁

  2. Love the outfit! I too have clothing/accessories that I have yet to put to good use including a hat. I love how you coordinated all the colors, and that mug definitely is the icing on the cake. Great post!

    • Haha thank you!! It all worked out well! 🙂 Isn’t that the worst when you know you have items just collecting dust. I love figuring out how to wear them! And the mug wasn’t supposed to be intentional – I was just sipping my tea while we walked around the neighborhood + it happened to match perfectly! Too funny!

  3. Cute cute cute! I can’t believe that sweater and leggings are from Walmart- and so cheap! What a steal! I love that pattern in the blanket scarf, and I also like it draped like that!

    • Hahaha thank you! And I knowww, I’m 1/2 embarrassed that they’re from Walmart! Everytime I run in the store, I have to pass the women’s clothes + sometimes I’ll see something that’s actually cute + super cheap…I can’t help it!

      • Oh I’m all about that! Good deal plus super cute=who cares where it’s from!! I really admire that you show how fashionable you can still be when shopping on a budget!!

        • Thank you!! I really appreciate that! 🙂 I feel like so many bloggers wear clothes that are [incredibly cute] just insanely expensive. Of course I love pricey, high-end things as much as the next girl, but it’s so not feasible for my life lol. I swear it’s not how much you pay… it’s just how you wear it. 🙂

  4. Girl you are too cute!!! I love the outfit so much!!! The hat looks amazing on you!! I totally love floppy hats…they are so fun and classy!! Those boots are amazing!!! I love how well they go with the outfit (well of course they do…you are the queen of fashion)!! Also, your pictures are perfection!!!

  5. Ok, the entire outfit is just to adorable! But girl, I think we could wrap you in a burlap sack, throw a scarf around your neck and you would be runway ready. Love it! And yeah, the boots…. are a must have. 🙂

  6. You are so so stunning girly ! I absolutely love your outfit and your scarf so much ! You should wear the floppy hat more often it suits you so much ! I recently discovered a camel coloured pair of jeggings in my wardrobe that I cannot stop wearing !!

    Great post girlie and love the pictures

    • Thank you so much, love! I appreciate your sweet words. It is such a great hat, I don’t know why I don’t wear it more often. Those camel jeggings sound really cute!! Thanks for reading 🙂 XOXO
