In a marvellous blog I read called It’s Finally Lunch, one of the authors (there are two) said that it is “just about beanie time”. She was in Lake Tahoe though – I don’t think that it is quite time to start wearing hats and gloves in London yet.
I love beanies and keep buying new ones in my Quest For The Perfect Beanie.
I also have a dark pink beanie which I bought at the same time as the last one pictured. Both were from Harwoods (the chandlers in Yarmouth). I’ve left the pink beanie in the IoW as it looks a bit matchy-matchy with my pink Landsend mac (but looks great with my purple IoW Berghaus jacket) so I haven’t got a picture of it here.
Although it is still really quite warm in London, I have started seeing people wearing beanies. Either they (1) are from hot countries and feel the cold, (2) are making a style statement and don’t mind if their head gets sweaty or (3) feel that their hair is not presentable (beanies are super for disguising this not-very-serious problem).
Update: I took a photo of the pink beanie I leave in the IoW because it was bugging me to leave it out. Yeah, I know I’m weird.
