IGNITE Inspiration: A Cat and a Hat

If you've been following me from the beginning, you'll remember that I had pretty long locks a few months back.  See?  That was before I did the unthinkable and chopped it all off.  Nothing unusual for me since I like a drastic change every now and then but I *was* nervous that the shorter 'do wouldn't go so well with hats.  I love me some hats.  I bought this one when I had my longer tresses but was happy to see that it still worked with my shorter hair.

The sweater is old and I can't even remember where I got it.  Either H&M or F21, I'm sure.  I couldn't resist the embroidery.  Fierce yet understated at the same time--- just my style!  Here's a close up:

Isn't she cute?  Kinda like the Kenzo shirts so popular a few years back but without all the pattern and color.  The plaid bracelet is one of my all-time favs.  I picked it up on a trip to Brooks Brothers (with the hubs) a long time ago.  I don't know if it was for men or not.  All I knew was I liked it, it was on sale and it would be mine.  Done deal.

Since there were already two focal points in this outfit, I paired it with a classic white button up, dark skinny jeans and black booties.

This one is hard to link since a lot of the pieces are old but let's try:

Hat: old F21 but I like this one // Sweater: old** // Button-up: H&M   // Jeans: F21 // Booties: old, similar here // Bracelet: old, similar here or here (beaded option)

**if anyone finds this top, let me know!
