Let's say this is the weekend before my birthday. Rewind to the day that I was packing everything I could pack into a weekender bag for my first and most awesome trip to NYC. The forecast for mid January was mid 20's to 50's. What's a Bartholomew Cubbins to do?
I narrowed my hat options to four.
1) the Stormy Kromer Blizzard Hat:
purchased on a trip to the UP a couple of years ago, nothing says "mid west-gal's first trip to the big apple" like a hat with ear flaps
2) vintage 1960's sheep's skin hat:
found at a local thrift, super warm and tall enough to accommodate Marge Simpson's hairdo
3) vintage German beret:
versatile! works at the art museum as well as on a U Boat
4) vintage black felt bowler with the brim turned down:
really looks good when pointing at a landmark
next post will reveal which hat went to the city
