My Sunday Brunch Secret
I have a mental block against getting ready on Sundays (anyone else?!). After showering, shaving, blow-drying and putting on makeup Monday through Friday, I relish in the low maintenance of Sunday morning. But I also love brunch—and while I won't do my full routine, venturing out in public requires some level of prep.
A classic wool fedora is my quick fix, instantly making me feel chic and effortless at the same time.
I haven't always been a hat girl. But this guy finally made me come around.
With a structured shape and leather trim, it's a statement in itself—so you don't need all the foundation and mascara. The wide brim gives you a little extra coverage (great if you're still a little bleary from the night before), and it actually keeps you warm and protected from whipping winds. There's also something ... mysterious and alluring about a girl in a hat—it's perfect for stealthily exchanging gossip with girlfriends over salty dogs. I was a little worried that this one, like every hat, wouldn't fit my larger-than-average head (seriously), but it totally works (so if you're an egghead like me, order away!).
Just add some texture spray if your hair is a little limp and go!
Speaking of brunch, what's your favorite spot in Minneapolis? Now that Minnesota is freezing over, going out to eat kind of becomes a central weekend activity.
