What I Wore: You Really Dot Me Top (Modcloth), Skirt (Old; H&M), Bowler Hat (The Hat Shop), Shoes (Old Navy), Scarf (Yarn Works By Danyon)
You know how every blogger has this tendency to complain about taking outfit shots in the cold (Yeah, I'm one of them too)? Well, The Boy and I found the solution to all our chilly photo-taking woes: an outdoor fire! I love outdoor fires anyway, despite being rather terrified of fire (no joke, I refused to learn how to light matches till I got my first apartment and had a gas stove that you had to light. The oven also required a match to light the pilot. Never did bake much there...), but they are the best in the just-slightly chilly weather, so you get the sensation of being both warm and cold at the same time. I mean, I'm kinda being a baby because it was fifty degrees up in Billings when we went photo shooting and so that might not really qualify as chilly per say, but these are also sheer sleeves. So there.
Billings has been really making an effort in the last five years to reignite their downtown scene, and now there are all these "Alive after Five," hip, trendy places next to art galleries (art galleries that have items that are not just Western Art even. A revolution in Montana and Wyoming, practically!), cafes and the theatre(s.) This, and the fire pit across the street are by two such bars. I love wearing my bowler hat there because it makes me feel like I fit in and am all hip and trendy too.
Yeah. Such a poser, I know. But it IS a bowler hat. Bowler hats are cool.
