Here & Now with Jessica

Well, we are heading back to Texas today. I can't wait post about our adventures in California. What a trip, but I am missing my bed and all of you. In case you were wondering, the Random Wednesday link up will be live tomorrow, just not exactly sure what I am going to post. Hmmmmmm. Stay tuned.

Anyway, my girl Jessica is here today and you ladies are going to love what she has to say. I started reading her blog when I first started and actually won my very first giveaway from her. I still wear that necklace to this very day, Jessica! Her style so fun, knows how to work a closet and find the staples we all need to add to our wardrobe. Oh, and make sure to tell her congrats because she is tying the wedded knot soon. So, Jessica, the floor is all yours!

***************************************************************************
Hello BSSS readers! I could gush on about Shanna for long enough to be creepy, so let me just say, love that girl & I'm beyond thrilled to be here!

Oh right... I'm Jessica & I blog over at Here&Now where I talk about my personal style evolution, make the most of my grad student budget & over share about my pugs.


Last Summer one of the trends I missed out on & kicked myself over the most, was the Panama hat.

I have always had a large head (this clip better explains how I talk about my expansive melon), so I was afraid this wide brim accessory would accentuate my cranium in all the wrong ways.

I had all Fall & Winter to develop Panama hat FOMO, so when this trend train came back around this Summer, I was ready to hop all aboard. 
And now I am a Panama hat pusher.

How I've worn it: pink sweater // denim jacket // jean shorts // blue skirt

Seriously, I can't think of a reason to STOP wearing my Panama hat & find that despite the fact that I had to purchase the L-XL size, it surprising minimizes the planet like nature of my head. 
Win. Win.


What Summer trend are you happy you hopped on board with?
Feel free to come visit me any time over on Here&Now!!

Love love how this looks on you! I'm kind of loyal to my trilby (I like to pretend I'm Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca - how boring to want to be Ingrid Bergman ;-) ) but this could tempt me to switch over at least while the weather is nice...
