When I was in college, I wore headwraps almost everyday for two or three years. I had that much fabric! Some thought I was being eccentric, some thought I had changed my faith, and some thought I was imitating Erykah Badu, eventhough I never wore wraps that large. I guess it was because she was popular at the time I decided to go natural and wear headwraps and all. But the reality was, I was just exploring my heritage and I happened to LOVE hats and head coverings. I like the way they frame your face.
This year I've worn a hat almost every single day at work and even on most weekends. So far no one in authority has said anything to me, so I might make the whole year doing it. My students think I'm being classy. Especially when I wear berets. "She's so French," they say. [Keep in mind, they're only around 10 years old.] That was in the winter when I wore wool berets/tams. I was just trying to keep from being sick.
Now that spring is approaching, I've got to find some new hats and new hat styles. I think this beanie will be one of my choices. As requested, Alhana, I have tried on one of my hats! Just for you! :-)
