(Anyone out there remember the Beanie and Cecil cartoons from the early 1960’s? Every time I read the word beanie I hear “Beanie Boy!!!” in Cecil’s voice.)
One of the misconceptions that people sometimes have about Southern California is that our climate is tropical and always warm. Not so! While we rarely get much below freezing, during the late fall and winter months mornings and evenings especially can be quite “brisk.” So brisk recently in fact that a) I ordered a few lighter weight winter coats during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales to try, and b) I was very happy to have purchased this Evelane wool beanie on a whim a couple of weeks ago (thinking ahead actually to a ski trip planned for February). At the time I ordered this cap, the only color choices were black and grey, but they’ve since added a marled version, and I’m also eyeing this J.Crew cashmere beanie in “bright ocean” which is a pretty cobalt blue.
Another reason my head is cold…
Yep, I did the Big Chop over the weekend. My hair is very fine and thin, and once it hits a certain length just goes very limp and flat. I also wanted a change. This cut is a bit shorter than what I’d originally set out to do, but it’s growing on me. And it will grow. I think it’s time to up my earring game again now that the lobes are so visible. 😉 Glasses are from Robert Marc.
The utility jacket is from Sandro, and was purchased in London in Spring 2013. It’s more of a lightweight shell, which is great for our climate probably 6-8 months per year, though not really quite warm enough once temperatures drop much below 50F, unless I bundle up quite a bit underneath. But I do love how the cool olive color sets off this J.Crew scarf, also a few years old now but still a favorite.
Do you have a favorite style of winter hat?
