Good friends are a great thing. They provide support, laughs and inspiration. They’re there when you need them, share your obsession with chocolate and bring you balloons on your birthday. And if you’re lucky, they’ll show you how to spice up an impromptu dance routine with a killer robot arm.
Most of you have probably heard about my friend Annie. She’s been my blogging partner in crime since the beginning, and she stopped by today to hang out and share with you a few pieces from her own blog, Magical Simplicity. So, without further ado, take it away, Annie!
Natalie & I have been friends for the ages. All the awkward ages, that is. We went to grade school together clad in plaid skirts that were too big & polos with collars popped. The polos even had an elastic band around the bottom that gave the illusion of a tucked shirt. #CatholicSchool.
Oh how times have changed! We’re still both extremely awkward but at least we don’t have to wear the plaid anymore.No, in fact we get to play dress up instead :) Hi! I’m Annie. I host my own web space over at www.magicalsimplicity.com. Natalie asked me a few weeks ago to come up with a guest post for CincinNatalie (Isn’t she a great friend? Always spreading the magic!). It took me a little while, but I decided on hats.I didn’t even notice my love of hats until very recently. But, looking around, I’m not sure how I missed it. I can count 10 from where I’m sitting right now. Excessive? No! HATS ARE AMAZING. Hats cover bad hair days. Hats block the sun. Hats add color to an outfit. Or, hats balance your outfit out. Hats cover the mornings you don’t feel like wearing makeup. Hats keep you warm. Or, hats keep you cool. Hats are the bomb. I think if I didn’t work in an office from 9-6 I would wear hats every single day…. & on vacation days/weekends, you’ll likely find me doing just that!Here’s a quick look at some of my favorites hat posts over the past few months:My latest task has been trying to transition summer hats into the fall. I was at a pumpkin patch a little while ago & saw tons of fedoras — so I’m thinking I’m not alone! Anyway, thanks for letting me stop by for a second! I know you know this already, but Natalie is amazing. & rumor has it (or at least this photo I snapped many weeks ago that I think she’s forgotten about, has it) that she likes hats too.
I hope you all stop by Magical Simplicity to hang out! I’d love to have you & together spread a little magic :)
