Mix + Max: Floppy For Fall | Blogmas 2, 2015

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]!  🙂

      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!

    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. 🙂
