Mondays have become my unofficial beret wearing day. The Museum I work at isn’t open to the public and the vacant atmosphere calls for something a little more low key – a beret! (Sequin beret from Freestyle $8, faux fur scarf from Thrift Town $5.99, Ann Taylor top free at Clothing Swap)
Maybe it’s my affinity for the Parisian culture, but there’s something about a beret that brings a smile to my face. (Vintage beret from the Sac Antique Faire $2, pearls and BCBG dress from Deseret Industries $2 & $20, Ninewest pumps from Freestyle $15)
Sometimes I fantasize about being back in Paris and dress the part to romanticize my time spent there in 2005. (Beret from Thrift Town $3.99, Ann Taylor dress from Freestyle $15, necklace from Sac Antique Faire $2.50, & tights from SPCA thrift $1!!!)
Memories of my wonderful visits to the Pompidou Museum, window shopping along the Champs-Elysées, and the most delectable desserts a girl has ever devoured would make any one nostalgic for all things French. (Beret from the Sac Antique Faire $2, Ann Taylor dress from Freestyle $15, H&M faux fur vest from Eco Thrift, & Stuart Weitzman boots from Freestyle $12.50)
Maybe one day I’ll be able to go back again, but till then I’ll wear my trustee beret and daydream instead…
If you’re thinking of adding a little flair to your fall/winter wardrobe this season try a beret. I’m convinced it’s the universal hat and looks great on just about anyone!
