The last two are especially good for ice fishing. In October and November orange baseball hat and an orange knit hat if it gets cold enough.
Real men wear hats! Especially the Mad Bomber style when you're out on the ice! Although who doesn't love a Pat's hat?

When it comes to warmth, we all stoop to levels we never thought possible. Hypothermia just isn't worth worrying about how good you look. It's smarter to look warm!

well if his ears get frostbite, I'm sure he'll be changing his opinion on what is fashionable! K really doesn't like hats at all but he has a camo baseball type cap that he took to wearing this fall, as much to keep his long hair out of his face when working out in the wind as anything, and this time of the year he lives in his gray stocking cap.

I think there comes to a point -- the closer one gets to what I consider "real life" -- that fashion follows function. What looks and feels silly in the south, may not up here in the northlands.. and vice versa. (my back yard is a ankle breaker for sure if anyone were crazy enough to try to walk across it in high heels, for example)

I wear different things at different times.

In the summer I wear a cowboy style straw hat around the farm. Or if I am vending at the Farmer's Market.

Going into town I usually put on a ballcap, I have a bunch of ballcaps one from each boat that I served onboard.

If it is raining HARD I wear a Marine boonie hat.

Come winter I shift to black wool knit watchcaps [Navy issue].

And if it is cool [below 10F] and blowing hard I like a coat with a hood.

I have a down coat with a removeable hood. Most of the time the hood is removed, unless I'm out in a snowstorm. I frequently wear a knit hat, but I also have one of those stupid-looking fur-lined hats with the ear flaps- when it gets cold enough I wear it. There is a point where the desire for comfort completely obliterates any sense of style I may (or may not) have.

I have to go with no on the hats. My hair is way too poofy for them. Going for some good ear muffs and a hood(sprayed with statis guard?). No one needs to see a fro on me.

Good luck with that drama, let's talk about it again once you're living there and the temps hit -15 below! Fashion goes right out the window and it's all about self preservation. Frostbite is not fashionable either.

Fashion? On some winter days it just isn't an option.
Like, high heel anything just can't be pulled off. I got these italian boots at Mardens years ago and do you think I dare wear them on frosting mornings?

I have to do the pro's and cons list as I stare at them on the rack.


*Pro's
  • Will look great with my peacoat
  • Will make my butt and legs look good
  • My DH will hug me and squeeze me more.


Con's
  • Broken neck
  • Broken leg
  • Broken arm
  • Broken hip
  • Broken Back
  • Cracked Skull
(Looks like the con has it on this one.)
