Something I Want: Beanie

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Now that it is starting to get colder, I am looking for anything and everything to bundle up and stay warm. I love layering, so the cooler weather is my friend. I have an embarrassing amount of socks and scarfs, but I have exactly one beanie... not ok.
Here is the deal. Do you see these pictures? There is something all these girls have in common... something I do not have.
Long hair.
I chopped off all my hair about a year ago, and since then it has been the biggest struggle to find a beanie that doesn't make me look like a boy! I don't know if I just don't know how to style it or what, but since I have chopped off my hair I haven't been able to wear one. You guys, my ears are stinking cold! The one beanie I have that is acceptable is all stretched out from when I had my long hair. It works, but has the most random colors and makes me look rather odd since it is all stretched out.
Here is the thing... I am not that girly. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE me some dresses, but you will most likely see me pair a skirt with one of my concert tees and a jean vest, than some frilly, sparkly, something shirt. I definitely had a phase were I was pretty girly, but I am kind of transitioning out of that right now. This is causing problems, because the beanies I tend to like are found in the boy section. This does not help the "trying to not look like a boy" thing. In order to not look like a man, I have to find something sparkly or overly girly. I just don't really know what to do. Winter is approaching, and I need something to cover my poor little head. Does anyone have any suggestions? Does anyone with short hair have this same problem?
I think I am just going to have to get over the fact that I am going to look like a boy if I wear a beanie, and just embrace it! I can do that! I think...


  1. I totally understand your problem! Short hair sucks with hats... However, you don't look like a boy and I think that you should definitely rock the beenie this winter! Your ears will thank you! And I am sure that you will still look cute!

    1. Oh Kayla, you are too kind! I am totally going to rock it. I don't even care if I look like a boy. I just stinking want one, and that is that! Haha Now I just need to find the right one...


I appreciate your loveliest of lovely comments! :)
