holiday beret

Coat: Topshop (old, similar, love this) / Sweater: J.Crew (on sale!) / Jeans: Topshop /
Boots: rag & bone / Beret: Nordstrom / Bag: Kate Spade / Lipstick: Clinique Matte Crimson

Right after I took these photos I saw a post on Man Repeller: "Can You Wear A Beret Without Looking Like An A-Hole?" I might amend it to "without looking like a French wannabe" or "a snobby trust fund baby," but either way you get the idea. When I see a beret (or any type of hat, for that matter) on other people, I don't think twice about how great it looks. And when I see an especially cute one like this in the store, I think, oh I've worn berets before, I have no fear of them! Still, putting one on always seems like a risk to me. But I've decided that my style is classic with a twist towards the quirky (what no, not like Zooey Deschanel, what?) - meaning, I think I'll never be able to wear an outfit like a plain red sweater with black jeans without adding something to it. And if that something is a blinged-out beret, well, that's just who I am, okay? ;)
