Beanie Baby.

IMG_5297OK, if you weren’t born in the ’80s ‘Beanie Baby’ may be a completely unfamiliar term which really doesn’t have anything to do with this post besides the related word ‘beanie’.  My friends and family know that I am the queen of beanies.  I love nothing more than a good knit to throw on when the temperatures start to drop.  Wouldn’t you know though, I have an entire drawer dedicated to beanies for my different outdoor needs.  Here’s my guide for beanies this fall/winter.

IMG_5322This thin knit Charlotte Russe beanie is great for being active outdoors.  It’s tight enough to stay on but also lets the top of your head breathe a little.

My Neff beanies are great for snowboarding.  Anything fitted and even that my goggles can pop right on is great.

IMG_5314Love my Free People beanie for city strolling.  The large stitch allows air to flow through nicely and it’s only gotten better the more it gets worn in.

This thick knit Forever21 beanie is the warmest and could be worn for any activity.  It also has cute small stitched hearts which adds soft detail.

Street wear Neff beanie.  This one is great because you can roll it into a good snowboarding beanie or keep it loose.

Hipster Hangout

There’s one type of style that really resonates with the San Francisco music scene and really any music scene for that matter.  There are different variations of the style of course, like this one which is a little more rock glam.  In the end it all falls under one word, hipster.  I just love hipster style.  There’s something so nerdy but beautiful about it.  Who cares if you look like Urkel or Waldo, they were cool!  It’s also comfortable to be bundled and beanied.  So grab a PBR and embrace your inner hipster style.

(My Steve Madden boots are THE BEST.  I wear these with shorts, dresses, leggings, jeans, and so much more)

(I love beanies.  They keep you warm and can help tame a wild mane.)

(A trick I’ve learned that’s made me love scarves:  Tie the ends in a small knot and then wrap around your neck once or twice like an infinity scarf.  It keeps the scarf laying nicely but still cutely disheveled.)

(Grab a PBR, put on your urkel glasses, and perch in a window.  Boom, we just made you a hipster too!)
