When I was younger, I didn't understand why my father wore so many hats and caps or why my mother often threw on wide brim hats to complete her wardrobe; but now I get it. In most cases, hats make an outfit come alive. I have learned that I can throw on a nice hat or cap with almost any outfit and make my look even more stylish.
I would suggest that every fashion junkie own at least two stylish hats or caps. They turn an ordinary outfit into an extraordinary one. Hats not only make your outfit pop, they also camouflage your hair when you are not in the mood to comb it; and that is exactly what was happening on the day I took these pictures.
The other staple in these photos, aside from my hat, are my Steve Madden Wantagh Booties. These faithful booties have gotten a lot of wear. They go with just about anything! I wear them with skinny jeans, shorts, skirts, and of course dresses. I consider these shoes a fashion investment. When you purchase shoes that go with almost any outfit and can be worn all year round, you are definitely getting your money's worth.
