Hats can really pull a look together and make it look complete. However, they can be intimidating to wear. Knowing which hat styles work best for you is a big part of wearing a hat well. Fit is also key in making sure your hat compliments you; an ill fitting hat can detract from your look.

Today, let’s talk about one hat style that anyone can wear. I’m talking about rancher hats. This style compliments any face shape and is available in various brim sizes. If you’re new to hats and aren’t sure how to wear a rancher hat, stick with a medium brim. A wider brim rancher hat may end up wearing you and a smaller brim can look more like a fedora and will make your look too hipster.

Rancher hats are typically made of wool which limits its wearability to only fall and winter. You can get more use out of your hat by opting for one made of a cotton/polyester blend, like this one. Wool hats are warmer but the cotton/polyester blend still keep in quite a good amount of heat but also breath better during the warmer seasons allowing you to get more use out of your hat.

Now, let’s talk about how to style a rancher hat. If you’re not sure how to style your hat, play it safe. For this look I went with an all black outfit and use my coat and accesories to add more dimension to my look. The color of my hat ties into the tone of my coat and purse, pulling the whole look together and drawing the eye upwards, thus giving me a taller, leaner look.

The neutral tone of this hat pairs well with the tone of my faux-shearling winter coat and because of it’s lightweight, woven material, it will pair equally as nicely with a maxi dress and sandals in the spring or summer. As for fit, the inner band should fit snug around your head but not tight. If you can’t tell whether your hat is just snug or tight, try the one finger trick. You should be able to fit one finger comfortably between your head and the band.

I also wore this hat as part of a more monochrome look, click here to take a look.

Marc called this outfit “ballerina goes to business school”. Lol. I’ve been anxiously waiting to wear this sweatshirt ever since I first purchased it during the Nordstrom anniversary sale. And now the perfect weather has arrived! It’s finally starting to cool down, here, in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, this top sold out already. But I’m keeping my eye on it, in case it comes back. I love how soft this top is. The material is slightly thick, almost sweater-like but not quite, making it a perfect transitional piece. The fun ruffle accent is my favorite part. This top is something I’d typically never wear but I’m trying to add more color to my wardrobe and since having Athena, pink has become one of my favorite colors. I swear I loathed it with a passion before she came along. And now, well, I’m wearing this pink top, staring at pink bedding for Athena’s crib, and I just purchased pink curtains for her nursery. I don’t know what happening to me. It’s a good thing pink is trending right now!

I’m also really excited about these jeans. Black skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple and these are the perfect pair! Especially if you’re curvy. Finding skinny jeans for curvy girls, can be work. These hug you so well and they don’t sag. They’re also super comfortable, they fit true to size, and they go with everything; winning! Lol. If you’ve been looking for a pair of basic black skin jeans, look no further, you’ve found them!

This leather purse is perfect for toting around everyday. The side pockets are ideal for keeping your cell phone and keys easily accessible, and the color goes with just about everything. Saffiano leather has a crosshatch pattern that makes is easy to identify. This type of leather is easy to clean, most liquids just glide right off. I’m loving this new tote, it’s pairs very well with a casual look and equally with a sophisticated one.

OXBLOOD

OXBLOOD-1 OXBLOOD-2 OXBLOOD-3 OXBLOOD-4 OXBLOOD-6 OXBLOOD-5I’ve been anxiously waiting for the weather to cool down so I could break out this coat. I got it a while back even though it was still a million degrees outside. When you see a great coat you just have to jump on it, you know? The faux-fur collar has me obsessed! I love the contrast of the body’s texture with the faux-fur. The collar is also detachable and once detached, it gives the coat a completely different look which is still polished but a bit more casual. I can’t wait to shoot it again without the collar for you guys to see. Oxblood is a huge color this season and I’m loving it so much that I even did an oxblood lip color for this look. The gold and oxblood nail stickers were a coincidence though. I stocked up on these nail stickers back when Marchesa partnered with Revlon. They’re so gorgeous, I hope they do another collaboration soon! Can you imagine CHANEL nail stickers?! Quick, someone make that happen!

OXBLOOD

He estado esperando ansiosamente el clima enfríe para podrer estrenar este abrigo. Lo compre hace tiempo a pesar de que todavía estava un millón de grados afuera. Cuando vean un gran abrigo lo tienen que comprar de inmediato, ¿sabes? El cuello de piel sintética me tiene obsesionada! Me encanta el contraste de la textura del cuerpo con la piel sintética. El cuello también es desmontable y una vez separada, el abrigo tiene una apariencia completamente diferente, todavía se ve sofisticado, pero un poco más casual. No puedo esperar para fotografiarlo de nuevo sin el collar para que ustedes vean. Oxblood es un color muy popular esta temporada y lo estoy amando tanto que hasta me puse un color de labios de color rojo oscuro para este look. Las calcomanías de oro y rojo oscuro para las uñas fueron una coincidencia, me las puse hace dias. Compre varias de estas calcomanías el año pasado cuando Marchesa se asoció con Revlon. Son tan magníficas, espero que hagan otra colaboración pronto! ¿Te imaginas calcomanías de uñas de CHANEL?! Rápido, alguien haga que eso suceda!
