This is my 70’s  inspired outfit, complete with broken floppy hat purchased from CVS. The title is a Smiths’ song, and its also the title of a Degrassi episode. (I love Canadian TV! That accent with the O’s. Can’t wait to live so close to Canada this summer!)

Maxi skirts have been intimidating to me for a long time. They have the possibility to make you look tall and willowy or like a short and squat midget. This weekend, I finally took the plunge and purchased one. I love it! I can’t stop wearing it around. Nana Barbara, my grandmother said I actually looked really pretty, and tall and thin, so I guess maxi skirts are a decent look for me. I anticipate wearing this skirt around Missoula all summer.

While at the park photographing this with my brother and my friend Allie, we got a lot of strange looks from frisbee golfers. I think its because I was wearing a hat after 5 PM. As we were leaving to take these photos around 5, Nana Barbara said a lady never wears a hat after 5, unless its a cocktail hat. (I’ll assume she means a fascinator?) Life lesson learned.

    I now learned something new about hat etiquette! I’m really glad I read this when I did.

    I love maxi skirts too and you look lovely in yours! And loving your floppy hat!!
    I totally understand how you feel about the weird stares, especially when my friend takes close ups of what I’m wearing, by-passers always have a confused look.

    Canada, eh? 🙂

    I love this look! It’s a little gypsy, a little city-girl, and totally fabulous. The hat, the bangles, and the belt are all great touches- kind of jealous of your accessories, actually.
