I love decorative head-wear. Be it a wide-brimmed hat, sparkly headband of a silk scarf - this gal is most comfortable with something fancying up her noggin. Naturally the beret should fall into the category of hat love but it's just one chapeau that I can't seem to work into my everyday routine, probably because it makes me feel like mime. Well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em - by dressing like your stereotypical Parisian, that is. Although those of us who have visited the city of love know that this look would never be found on the streets of Paris, there's something so whimsical about dressing in character. Stripes were the perfect compliment to this raspberry beret (cue the Prince), and my favourite gold skirt finishes off the outfit nicely.

I'm still absolutely loving this camel coat from Sumissura, last seen in this post. Although it's a little light for winter and would best suit the upcoming spring weather, I keep on finding excuses to pull it out. As a petite woman who struggles with sizing, when you have a coat where the sleeves fit - you find a way to wear it!
All in all, although the beret may not be a part of my regular hat rotation, it is a great piece to inject some fun into your outfit. What do you think, are you feeling the beret? Do you have a certain piece that you struggle incorporating into your wardrobe? Let me know!
