The Rain Hat

I added a faux fur rain hat to my collection this month. My hair and humidity isn't a pretty combination so there are several hats in my closet. I think this one will be a favorite this winter!



Some of my jackets and coats are now too large for me but I will get this one tailored. I love the teal blue color. It's a Geiger boiled wool jacket that works great over pants. The scarf is a large square silk(like) material in teal with a bit of animal print from Ross. The bag is a winter favorite by Tiganello from 2011.



The pants are a straight leg style from Stein Mart last year. 



The booties are by Nine West.



The very warm and comfy faux fur hat is from Coldwater Creek. The grey long sleeved tee is by Vera Wang from Kohl's.



Being silly in the rain brings back sweet memories of my childhood on a farm in North Carolina. The now rare (for me) sound of rain on a tin roof always transports me to that far away simple time. I loved to curl up wrapped in one of my grandmother's hand made quilts on the front porch swing of our old farmhouse and watch the rainfall. When the storm passed I would go looking for frogs and red salamanders.  Being an only child at that time and living on a secluded farm meant finding playmates in nature.

Thank you for reading my blog and visiting with me on Facebook this past year.
