Sweet November Rain

I feel so Parisian in this look. I'm sure it's my clumsy Canadian version and is far from the real thing, but something about the simplicity of the look -- the stripes with the black -- makes me feel this way. I can picture myself walking down the street and looking into all the pretty little shops and cafes while eating my macarons, but the reality is that I'm hiding under an overhang to keep out of the rain... the sweet November rain...

And considering the reality of my location, I think this burgundy hat might be my best new purchase. It has already saved me from the rain twice and I only bought it yesterday. First, I had to stop and get groceries on the way home from H&M and it was pouring out. I wouldn't have had enough hands for an umbrella, so I took the hat out of the shopping bag and used that instead. The second time was today during photos. My hair frizzes up the second I walk out the door into the rain, so this hat allowed a second set of photos in one day (quite the necessity now that we've changed the clocks back). So really, hats are like hands-free umbrellas! How had I not discovered this earlier?

I hope you've had an amazing weekend and enjoy that extra hour of sleep! I know I will :)
