OOTD :: of Crazy Socks Day and hat attacks

2.6.14 picstitch(7) picstitch(8)

Full disclosure: I came last today.

I was so excited to participate in my first ever Hat Attack link up and I was so determined to wear crazy socks in honor of today’s spirit theme that I plumb forgot about my own Thrifted Thursday deal. And I fell in love with today’s outfit so much that I couldn’t even entertain the thought of revising it.

So there’s really nothing particularly thrifty about today’s ensemble. I actually paid full price for all the items save the fishnets, but even those were on sale for only a mere 20% off so I don’t know if that counts.

Digression #1: These are my first pair of fishnets and I’m kicking myself for never having bought them before. Oh, the fun I could’ve had with these in my 20s!

In my defence, all the pieces did come from lower price point retailers so perhaps you’ll let me slide this time? Let’s just all admire the awesomeness that is this crushable bucket hat and how perfectly it sets the tone for the whimsy of the rest of the ensemble. I feel one part Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and two parts Daria Morgendorffer. Not a bad combination if I do say so meself.

Digression #2: I worried about keeping the hat on all day while I taught, fearing both that it’d be a distraction and that it was improper in some way. Thank goodness my boyfriend Google set me straight on the latter with this article.
