the princess and the hat

Yay weekend! This week has been great not only for New York Knicks, who got straight three wins (I'm so proud!), but for me too. I'm really happy to hear that my dear friend is getting married. Yeah, I'm too happy I cried. It's not that I'm too melodramatic or what but she's like the big sister I never had, so yeah... I'm a little melodramatic. And I'm such a sucker for happily ever after too. I am that girl who has not outgrown fairy tales yet. This reminds me of the photos I saw from Dina Goldstein's Fallen Princesses website.

Anyways, tonight was not a good night to go out coz it's freezing outside. The temperature was around 25 but it felt like 10 to 12 because of the wind. Despite that, I went to church for our youth service during Fridays called "The Gate".

I really find it a great challenge to be chic and warm without looking like an eskimo lost in the city. And I should say I hate wearing turtle necks, it makes me feel like suffocated. But with the wind speed of 25 mph, thanks to whoever invented it.

I added a long silver necklace (from I forgot where) to at least spice up my outfit.

I love how the pattern of the sweater (from Great American Sweater) looks when I put my hands down.

I love this hat (from mom's closet). It keeps my head warm. But then, after a minute outside I can hardly feel my face. It made me think of wearing something like this.

(Spacecraft the scout Mask from Urban Outfitters)
But on the second thought, I'd rather be caught freezing than wearing something like that. Especially this:

(Chicken hat from Urban Outfitters)
or this:

(Moose hat from Urban Outfitters)
Know what I'm thinking right now? I'm "mind" singing (and "mind" dancing) Alex and Harper's (Wizards of Waverly place) song:

What's that, a hat.
A crazy funky junky hat.
Overslept, hair unslightly.
Trying to look like Keira Knightly.
We've been there.
We've done that.
We see right through your funky hat.

But I admit, if ever I'll see someone wearing any of these will surely make me smile. In a good or bad way? That I can't tell. To some it could be a disaster but I'm sure some can pull it off in a cool way.

I think that's all I have for now. Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
Don't forget to clothe yourself with love, peace, and kindness!

I can't imagine wearing those hats but they really look so cute.

You have to show pics of yourself more often, you are so pretty even if you seem suffocated by the turtleneck. hahaha!

Have a great weekend Betz!

I think I have a really similar jumper, I don't like turtle necks either but in winter there's nothing better lol
The funky hat song made me smile, I used to sing it when I was in Ohio, I totally had forgotten it! :)

Hi Betz! I really wish I can do my own nails but I'm such a klutz believe me. But I have tons of nail colors here but I always ask somebody to do my nails for me using my nail polishes. That's one good thing living in Manila, it's very cheap to pay for the services of a nail expert. Would you believe I pay only US$2 per service?

Ha, what a fun post! That collection of princess photos is fantastic...I will have to look into that photographer. I like the Fair Isle sweater--so wintry...is that hat chenille? It looks so soft. I don't like how turtlenecks feel either--which is why I have a big scarf collection! :) Stay warm and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Darling hat! It goes great with the sweater, and I love that Urban Outfitters boy in the knight hat; he's like a younger, attractive Peter Sarsgaard.

Leah said...

Betz, ok lang na tawagin ako na ate, wag lang tita. Hahaha! Ok, you can call me ate pero wag ka na mag-po ha.

Thanks for the compliment ha. Would you believe na (tatagalugin ko na para di maintindihan ng mga batang followers natin) ilang taon lang tanda mo sa eldest son ko. Pero sabi ko nga age is just a number.
