56. Let’s talk hats

INFEASIBLE: Straw cowboy hats

(From Hat Country)

Hats are another sticky topic: some people, yours truly included, can never pass off a hat. And frankly, I haven’t figured out why just yet and instead just work off of intuition.

*Weezer’s ok, but I do like the pin.

So, what’s in the tote bag? Nothing, eh? Well, umm, why carry it around then? ‘Cause right now you kind of look like a courier that just hopped out of bed and ran to deliver an package to that Aim center behind you in his pajamas. Also, in case you didn’t notice, it’s the summertime – no need for a winter hat. The only snow floating around appears to be coming from your nostrils…
