Closet Treasures

I’ve been getting some good use out of my Forever 21 teddy coat I got last year. It’s still one of my favs, and I will forever be a fan of anything this soft and cozy. The majority of this look is a collection of my favorite thrifted finds from last year. One special piece in particular is my orange scarf that I found at a thrift shop in Barcelona! It’s been in my drawer and I haven’t used it too much so it’s been tied on my purse for the last couple weeks. I still haven’t edited our video from our trip there! I need to get on that so I can share all the beautiful places we got to see with you all. Stay tuned for that 🙂 My band tee and cropped jeans are also thrifted. I was stoked to find a pair of light washed Levis that actually fit me right. My navy blue hat is another one of my Sterkowski caps. If you haven’t seen my previous hat post, check it out! Sterkowski handcrafts the coolest and most unique hats and caps from Poland. They have such a wide variety of styles, colors, and fabrics. I’ve been having a lot of fun styling all the different ones I got last year! You can find all their products here: Sterkowski Hats. My boots are by Wild Diva and my rings are some old favorites that have been in my jewelry box awhile. I’ve been having fun pulling out old pieces from my closet and putting together different looks. Sometimes when I get the itch to go shopping for something new, I’ll go through my closet instead and try and get creative with those forgotten pieces. Go and try it, it’s super fun. Thanks for stopping by friends and enjoy this next month of winter!

The Fiddler Cap

Hats are an obvious obsession of mine, thanks to my Daddy, who’s closet is currently overflowing with an easy 50 plus hat collection.  The Fiddler Cap, also known as a Fisherman’s Cap (amongst other names) has been a long time favorite of mine. I still have my first Fiddler Cap that my dad bought for me over 10 years ago now. It’s the plaid one pictured above 🙂 There’s a lot of different variations of this hat but the original Fiddler Cap was either a navy blue or black wool felt. It can be identified by the small visor, braided cord, and flat top. Blue denim and corduroy were other popular fabrics. The original Fiddler Cap was introduced in the beginning of the 19th century in Europe as a practical and affordable work hat for factory workers and sailors. It became popular in the 1960s when musicians like John Lennon, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan began wearing them.  The nickname “Fiddler Cap” came after Chaim Topols role in “Fiddler On The Roof” in the 1970’s. This hat made another come back in the late 1990’s by British women and now again in the 2010’s and I’m loving it. I love styling these hats. They’re so cute! I love seeing them on men as well 🙂 I’m currently on the hunt for a rad blue denim Fiddler Cap to add to my collection. Hope everyone is enjoying the end of their summer. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited about the fall season approaching!
