THOUGHTS ON A BEANIE


I have a love hate relationship with beanie hats. Still not sure if I like that flatness to my head. When I wear them for outdoor winter activities, I wear then straight down close to my eyes for warmth with that cute Pom sticking straight up. However, when it's more for fashion, like today's post, I like to wear it a little more slouchy. Funny thing is, I didn't start wearing beanies in the Winter until a few years ago and only do when it's super cold out.


 On this particular day, wind chills were near zero so it was a fast shoot but this is an outfit I'd wear out and about or quick errands on a winter day.



This is a favorite cardigan of mine from Forever 21, I usually always pair it with leggings and a tee or as here, a long chambray tunic and I'd pair it with tan high boots or my Hunters. Last year, I feel in love with the fingerless mittens and love that my fingers are free. I only own a grey pair so they work well with this cardigan. The fringe grey tote is from Nordstrom. 
This particular beanie is good ole Target on clearance. The cream one I loved at Nordstrom was all sold out so tickled I got a better deal at Target anyway.



One of my area Starbucks still has a stock of red cups...I'm calling them "Valentine" cups!

What are your thoughts on beanie hats?

And shout out to my favorite Southern Belle: Gorgeous Laura Horton's Birthday today.

  1. You rock the beanie so well! I love them because you can still wear your hair down but hide a bad hair day (or a lazy hair day) at the same time. Stay warm with that snow in the background!

  2. I'm the same way when it comes to beanies...which honestly the only way I wear it is for warmth so it almost covers my eyes LOL! I love the slouchy look here - such a cute outfit you put together! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I love the way beanies look on other people but never feel like I can pull them off. When I was in NYC two years ago I wore one every day and I thought I looked ridiculous in pictures. Maybe I just haven't found the right one!

  6. Thank you for the Birthday Shout Out, Andrea! I noticed that red cup before you mentioned it and I thought the same thing: a cup of LOVE! I personally can't wear a beanie, but I wish I could. I think it's my hair being too short. I think they look much better when you can still see a person's hair and of course you look awesome in it! Such a warm and cozy outfit! I wish you would share some of your snow with us here in Louisiana! Also, I'm so glad that we like to shop at the same stores: Target, Nordstrom, Forever21. Did I tell you that I went to my TJ Maxx last week and actually bought something?!

  17. So cute! I love beanie hats and it's a plus that they keep you warmer on a cold day. Looking gorgeous as usual! Have a great day!

  18. I'm not a hat person, too, so I don't really like to wear a beanie. Thankfully, I don't live somewhere that is super cold like yours!

  20. I love beanies on everyone but me! I bought one beanie last year, but haven't worn it yet. It doesn't seem to want to stay on my head right and keeps slipping up. I think I have a big head.

  21. You are so cute in that beanie!! I picked up one in the dollar section at Target for $3.00, I was excited!

  23. I never was a hat person until I went to college now I pretty much live in a beanie! They are essentials to me! Love those hunters! You look so fabulous!

  26. I think beanies can look so cute, but if I put one on I have to totally commit--my hair looks insane after wearing one and taking it off!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't wear beanies for that same reason and it's not ever really cold enough but I think it looks really cute on you the way you styled it.

    Have a Fab Wednesday, Love!

  29. I have such a love/hate relationship with beanies as well! I always try to do the cool slouchy thing but my head is way too big for that and the beanie always ends up sliding off my head, pins or no pins! You look absolutely adorable in a beany and when it's actually practical that's even better! Love this whole look! Hope you are having a glorious week my beautiful friend! XO -Kim

  30. Love this look! The beanie looks great on you. I always feel ridiculous wearing. Love, love, love the red Hunters!

  31. You look so cute in that hat!!! I cant wear hats. I feel like I look absolutely ridiculous in them. I dont even have a winter hat for that very reason. It doesn't get that cold down here for long periods to justify it I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  32. TOTALLLLLLY with you!! I love hats and I love the way they look on so many people but I feel like I can never make them work - beanie hats included!! You look fabulous in that outfit, I just love those boots!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Honestly I also have a love hate relationship with beanies. I have a few, but I'm extremely picky and also extremely careful with what I wear it with. I feel like some girls can pull them off like crazy, then there's me haha. Thanks for linking up with me today and I'll be pinning this to the link up board. Hope to see you back next week!

  36. I have a love/hate relationship with hats in general! I think this outfit looks great on you! From the sweater to the red boots, this is such a cozy chic ensemble!

  38. I like the beanie, I don't like the beanie hair when the beanie comes off. I've noticed recently a lot of women wearing beanies with CC label on them. I don't really care about fashion, but I'm curious what brand this is? The rain boots are super cute!

  44. Ahhh....I'm SO jealous of your Hunters! I've wanted them forever, but just can't justify getting them for our weather here in CA (which is funny, because I'll buy a million fur coats, right?!). Love this laid back look on you! Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead, friend! XO

  45. I don't wear beanies, but it sure looks good on you! What a cute outfit and I think your outfit with those gorgeous red Hunter boots just pops!

  46. I LOVE the look of the beanie on you. For some reason beanies look 'not so good' on my head. Great use of the color gray you have going on. xo

  47. You look cute in a beanie! I only wear mine when I'm using the snowblower...ha!

  48. I love my beanie hat - but once I wear it I can't take it off because my hair is a little messy. But, they do keep me warm in the cold temps. I think you look very fashionable in your hat and cute cardigan. Thanks for joining my LINK UP.

  56. Your beanie looks great! Nice and cosy, especially with your layered outfit :)

    I'm not much of a hat person although I won a beanie last year and I wore it a few times in winter on our really cold days, it was handy to have!
