2021 Evolution in Sections (part 2)

the great Chapeau

Don’t mind me. I’m just growing through a Midlife Style Evolution my whole wardrobe has been assessed, purged, donated and rejuvenated.

I have have had a long love affair with a great Chapeau. Wearing them seeing them reading about the multiple ways to wear them. So I had 15 great headwear that I no longer felt any affinity for whatsoever. They did not make me smile. I did not take pictures of them head wraps one of a kind special pieces etc etc. I donated them so they could make someone else smile.

I kept 4 in picture 2 a large brimmed camo hat and a denim mesh hat love these 2. 2 sun visor hats in metallic gold and silver.

Picture 3. 4 new to my collection 2 vibrant head wraps and 2 faux Fur perfect pick me ups for winter/fall dreary days.

So my sidekick/model decided she wanted to take one. (She gets it from her mama lol)

Let me know your thoughts,

Next post will be about my bag collection.

    Z is so cute. She steals all my attention. I love your hearwear and Zi ‘joy in the red faux fur. They will come in handy in cold, windy Chicago as will your boots.

    You and your daughter have a knack for wearing a hat as well as anyone I’ve seen, Ledonna!  She is SO adorable in her red jacket and faux fur!  Thank you for sharing her with us.  

    I really appreciate what you said about donating some of your collection so they can make someone else smile.  That’s a great perspective to keep in mind when making decisions about what to keep and what to let go.

    Oh my gosh, the fuzzy hats are too cute! It's a good thing you got two. ;) 

  • nuancedream replied 4 months ago

    Now I want a fuzzy fur hat too. Zi'joy in that red faux fur hat knocks me out!  You two Chicago cover girls are crushing the winter style game.

    Love the fuzzy fur hats! Your little sidekick looks fab in red!

  • shevia replied 4 months ago

    #5 is such a great pose! You and Zi'Joy are everything in your furry hats.

  • rachylou replied 4 months ago

    Omg, the hats! The hats! I want to join the club! :)

  • Ledonna N. replied 4 months ago

    Windchime it’s so important to me that we upcycle or recycle our things if suitable. It’s creates less waste in the world and if I found joy I know and hope someone else will. I donate to a local women’s & children’s shelter. I just finished a big purge

    Thank you so much everyone Zi’Joy is the reason I buy multiples now. Or things very similar. Might as well enjoy it now and take lots of photos

  • Angie replied 4 months ago

    I don't know who is cuter - you or Z'Joy :)

    Good hat edit and review! You both ROCK your matching chapeaux!

    How can this tiny child be so great at posing for photos? She needs to teach me how to pose successfully :)

  • Ledonna N. replied 4 months ago

    Jessikams. It was the wave pose for me. I had to look over to see who she was waving at lol

  • Glory replied 4 months ago

    Z is just the cutest and her wonderful personality shines through. 

  • Ledonna N. replied 4 months ago

    Glory, Angie,slim cat, TorontoGirl. Thank you all so much she is literally the best sidekick ever

  • Suz replied 3 months ago

    OMG -- she's so cute I don't have eyes for anything else!! 

  • suntiger replied 3 months ago

    Love her pose in #5 :) I'm sad you passed on all your pretty headwraps though!

  • Ledonna N. replied 3 months ago

    Suz she is most certainly the focal point by just being herself. The power of preschoolers

    Sun tiger it was time. I had them for years. Considering they were still in good solid condition it gives me time to gather brighter colors and new joy

  • Firecracker replied 3 months ago

    You two are adorable. What a change, to donate nearly all your hats! I like the new furry ones. And you look great in your jeans, jacket and hiker-style boots.

  • Bijou replied 3 months ago

    Such a fun and uplifting post. The furry hats are wonderful and found the best home. I love that you match in a very fun and fashion forward way.

  • Ledonna N. replied 3 months ago

    Firecracker  Thank you so much  I feel like new toppers will come into the wardrobe as I find I gravitate to bright colors and I'm going to the fabric store to find some unique colors.

    Bijou-Thank you so much  Little ones love to imitate us.  I knew i had to purchase 2 because Zi tries to wear everything that I have. Even my graphic t-shirts and to big shoes.  I love this phase of her life and know it will end before I know it.
