when i was in NYC last year (it feels so long ago now, waaaaah!) i noticed girls wearing hats everywhere. i love it. i have not had the guts to wear one myself. not that you need guts, of course. but if you’re not used to wearing hats – besides on the beach – it’s quite a weird accessory to get used to. but once you do, you rock that shit.
