Hat: TJ Maxx, Top: Aqua, Sweater: Design History, Skirt: Zara, Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Today I scratched something off of my New York bucket list.. I crossed the Brooklyn Bridge by foot! But if I didn't tell you that I did it today would you look at these pictures and think I was an Italian immigrant peasant girl who just arrived in New York/America for the first time? Minus the people in modern western clothing behind me, I think it could be possible. I went for comfort today and just piled things on. Apparently, without even knowing, I channeled the look of Annie Moore, the first immigrant to ever cross through Ellis Island. I found this pic while googling facts and there is a weird resemblance to my long skirt, lace up shoes, wide brim hat, and frame bag.
I have no idea where my obsession with hats came from all of the sudden.. But now I feel like I want to collect millions of them and wear them all! Everyday! Whenever I think of hats I think of that scene in You've Got Mail where Meg Ryan says she sees a butterfly that found its way to Bloomingdale's to buy a hat that was probably a mistake, which almost all hats are.. Well, I strongly disagree.
And I would have extended my hat collection today when I met this little guy below. Turns out we were not the right fit (my head was way too small) and sadly, I had to walk away from it... brokenhearted. I almost bought it anyway just because I loved it that much. I might just have to put it on Missed Connections and hope that one day I find something like it in my size.

I also saw these amazing mirrors and tin decorative thingys
Definitely a must-do if you come to New York!
