I’ve been totally obsessed and dying to wear this blue hat ever since I picked it up at Forty Five Ten!  You may have seen my ramblings on twitter and instagram.  But seriously, who doesn’t need a blue hat?!  At least, that is what I convinced my friend KM!

I had some time to kill so I popped into Forty Five Ten before a lunch date with KM.  Harmless enough right?  WRONG!  Besides finding this amazing 100% wool, water resistant, cobalt blue treasure for $35 {see why it was so hard to resist}, I also got a Kelly Wearstler perforated bangle for the same price.  If you head over to her website, then you’ll know that’s a steal!  My friend, KM, ended up getting the hat and bangle also!  :)  We felt like bandits when we left the place.
When I was trying to find a something blue to match the hat, this Missoni for Target skirt {seen as a top here} came to mind.  But… looking at these pictures, I look like a cross between a pimp and Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman when she was “workin’ it”!  Yikes!  No wonder Mr. S gave me the big eyes and said that I really needed to OWN this look! LOL!  Next time, I’ll wear the hat with these pants instead.

    Oh Sam. So jealous of you and your amazing finds for such great deals. Love this hat from Forty Five Ten, and I especially love that first photo. Fierce. I do not see anything wrong with the Missoni skirt, but I would love to see the hat with the Alice & Olivia pants!

    PS. Made a trip to the Last Call today and thought of you!


  21. This hat is simply perfect! The color is so beautiful and it also looks amazing on you. I cannot pull off a color that bright, it always leaves me a bit jealous to those who can:)
