My favourite cozy/lazy “go-to” is throwing on a toque (or a Beanie for the Americans).
This is a fairly recent discovery for me. The truth is, anyone who has known me longer than a year knows how adamantly I have spent my life swearing against headwear. This hatred (caused purely by envy), was mostly due to the fact that I felt boyish with my hair covered up.
I have since realized, however, that I can effectively avoid being mistaken for one of my brothers by putting a little extra effort into my makeup.
The amazing thing about wearing a hat is that there can be pure madness going on beneath it, and no one is ever the wiser. Usually on wash day I will Pre-poo, stick a garbage bag on my head, throw my toque over top, and go run errands for a few hours. It has happened more than once where I’ve had to stop myself from blurting out; “There’s a garbage bag on my head!” after a stranger has genuinely complimented my look. Then there are my friends; they now know better since the few times they’ve tried to compliment me on my toque, they were greeted with an obnoxious “HashTag-WashDay”.
Now… the only thing to do is grow my collection.
Here’s what was really going on underneath the toque today..
