I’m so happy the weather is finally cooling down to the point where we can start wearing warm items. One of my favorites being hats. I love keeping my head warm and cozy, specially if it makes my outfit cute. Just like these new pom pom ears that have been added to hats and beanies, they’ve become so popular lately. Last year I bought my first double pom pom beanie. At the time the ears weren’t mainstream yet, so I would get a lot of funny looks while being out. For years and years single pom pom beanies have been available, usually these are only used once a year, typically around the holiday season. However, now pom poms are everywhere. They’re showing up as key chain accessories that can be attached not only to your keys, but also to bags. In addition to them popping out on hats as a set (like the one I’m wearing), most recently I’ve seen them on shoes too! How cute is that?
I seriously built my outfit around my pom pom ears hat. I knew I wanted to wear it right away, so I got to work in putting together an outfit that would accentuate my favorite new accessory. My hat looks a little bit like an equestrian helmet. So that’s where my inspiration took me. I pulled out my tall brown boots from the back of my closet. These are definitely not your typical riding boot, as they have a 4 inch heel and a thick platform. But, for city life they’re ideal. I paired them with crisp white jeans, an embellished grey sweater that I got from J.Crew. The plaid details around the neckline as well as the pretty embellishments all throughout make this pullover extra special. Not only is it very flattering, but it also layers oh so well. I put it over a white button down shirt for extra warmth. The merino wool used to make this sweater is they key behind it’s softness. To finish my look I added one more layer, a plush ivory vest. What’s best is that it’s reversible! The other side is more of a cable knit type sweater, so on really cold days you can wear that side outward, while keeping the fluffy side on the inside to keep you even more cozy. The result was better than expected. As I was super warm and very comfortable all day long. I also felt like I should trade in my car for a horse, don’t you think? 😉 lol
