Abercrombie & Fitch Knit Ear Flap Hat in Brown - Snagged off Abercrombie.com for $40 Retail

I've been pulling out all my wool skirts and I happened to find this one by Geren Ford with a cute plaid print.  This is an older item in my closet that had never been worn.  Any skirt with pockets is usually a winner in my book.  I paired it with this T by Alexander Wang light gray pocket tee that I snagged off Gilt.  Hats are something I used to overlook, but now I realize they can make all the difference in an outfit.  I love hats with ear flaps, especially this one I got at Abercrombie.  I think it is the kid in me who likes to pull on the long knit strings coming off the ear flaps.  Little things tend to make me happy. 

Something I really like mixing is brown and black so I paired the brown skirt and hat with these Alaia cut-out leather ankle boots that were snagged during an Alaia pop-up sale on the Outnet.  You saw the gray suede cutout wedges I snagged at the same sale in an earlier post.  These ankle boots are gorgeous and I had actually seen them on the Outnet earlier in the year and then magically all the Alaia stuff disappeared and I thought I had lost my chance to own them forever.  However, a few months later I got a notice about the pop-up sale and I saw these in the promotional e-mail photo.  I was ecstatic and I snagged them right away when the sale started. Alaia shoes are not as delicate as other designer shoes I own.  They have a sturdiness and a toughness that is hard to describe, but that is why I like them so much.  Colorado streets are not kind to designer shoes so Alaia shoes are the perfect solution.
