I like hats, but usually I need a reason to wear one, such as attending a hat-themed party or needing to keep the sun off my face. So it’s unusual for me to be wearing a flat cap here, since it serves no purpose except personal whimsy. And personal whimsy is fine and good but, frankly, I prefer to blend in when out in the world.
However, I really liked the idea of a flat cap, so I stuffed a handkerchief in the mean girl’s mouth–the one in my head saying, “What Will People Think?”–searched for, found and ordered the hat, and put it on my head. (If you want more details on how I got the idea in the first place, see my last post here–and, of course, watch the video.)
I initially planned to wear the hat with very casual jeans or khakis, but decided to stretch even further out of my comfort zone and try it with a skirt and wedge pumps. In the end, I think it’s cute, and I’m relieved, because I did have some doubts beforehand. I’d love to know what you think about wearing hats for absolutely no purpose at all except decoration. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
