See this hat? This stunning military hat?

It is the military hat of my dreams.


I look for inspiration everywhere when planning looks for fashion week especially when I am heading to Paris. I usually start with Instagram move on to Pinterest and once I’ve got some looks in mind and I’m ready to shop head straight to ASOS. One of my secrets to shopping on ASOS is selecting the “NEW IN” tab from the top menu. These are usually items that are on trend, newly in stock (so most sizes are available) and unique.

During my usual routine of outfit planning, I found myself on the ASOS site, I selected the “NEW IN” tab and there it was, The Military Hat of My Dreams. I quickly ordered it and shortly awaited its arrival thanks to 2-day shipping with ASOS premier delivery. Lucky for me the hat arrived before my trip to Paris and I decided to pack it for a ski trip to Lake Tahoe (read all about it here). The hat didn’t make the cut for any blog photos in Lake Tahoe, made it back to San Francisco and LUCKY for me survived a car break-in two nights before I left for Europe! Phew!

Now, this may not be the military hat of EVERYONE’s dreams but I adore it. In fact, the hat has driven a lot of buzz on social media and quite a few people are NOT fans of the hat…

So I decided to share some of the comments – both good and bad.


Here are some not so nice comments from my lovely friends and followers about the military hat:

-The hat sucks. Burn it.
-That hat. Love it! Said no one ever.
-Leave that hat in Paris.
-Do us all a favor. Throw that hat in the river tonight? K. Thanks.
-TSA gonna keep that hat.
-I’m not coming back to Paris until the hat is safely back in the US. You can stay, but the hat has to go home.

But we did have some positive comments about the military hat:

-That hat def needs its own Instagram.
-LOVE the hat!!!
-GIVE THE HAT ITS OWN INSTAGRAM.
-Such a cute hat.
-Love your hate.
-The hat is quite the traveler.
-Dying over this chic hat!
-I’m all for this Sgt. Pepper meets supermodel look! – a personal favorite.
