As you can see I'm beating a dead horse with the bandana trend. Yes it's everywhere, tied up every which way but it's probably the cheapest trend you'll ever invest in, so why not? Plus, it feels very summer to me. #Sorrynotsorry you will continue to see this scarf-tied-around-the-neck look often. Speaking of trends, one that comes and goes is the good old summertime flare denim. It's insanely classic and I assume will return to the forefront year after year. Here I went with a very "classique French" look, or my humble interpretation of it. Just missing the beret, non?
I'll tell you a funny story about this hat. The hat I'm always wearing on my Instagram and on the weekends in real life. When I was in Boston not too long ago I walked into a Goorin Bros near Cambridge and fell in love with this hat, I didn't buy it then but thought about it for a few weeks after. They didn't have it online, so I called corporate and they said they had one left in an SF store, ironically enough. I put it on hold, buy it, love it, wear it to death.
Sometime later on a flight back from Victoria, BC (where I of course bring my hat) I leave my prized possession at the customs stand, completely ignorant to that fact until after I reach my connecting flight after what was already a very long day (first flight canceled, 13 hours in the airport, etc). Of course when I do head back the customs agent won't let me back in, I plead, I cry (embarrassing but true), to no avail, they are not budging. I even send out a few, ahem, tweets to get Seattle Airport to pay me some attention. In the end I never got my hat back. Some customs agent is currently rocking my fabulous fedora. If you see them let me know it's mine!
Devastated but not deterred, I contact Goorin corporate again and ask if they have a replacement. They do! And again, ironically, it's in the Seattle store. They ship it, I love it, I overwear it, and here we are. The End.
