Stop Trying to Make Fedoras Happen

 I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day Weekend! I did even though I didn't do that much. I went shopping for my trips, I went on a long drive to my favorite part of Oregon just because and I ate some fine Sushi and some very unrefined breakfast food (I struggle saying no to a greasy spoon breakfast... always and forever). I even went into work for about 5-hours on Monday to prepare my desk for my departures next month (does anyone else's offices scare them when they're there alone? I try to convince myself that you need key card access to get in but every little noise creeps me out!). But really, I didn't do too much of anything as I'm really focused on packing and saving money for June. Except... I do actually want to spend some money on something: a Fedora.
Me in 2011 with a borrowed Fedora. I plan on wearing one of these when I gorge myself just like the above.
 I know what you're thinking: "Fedora? Whoop-de-f*cking-do... yeah, I heard of those about 12 years ago." And I agree. But the thing with me and Fedoras is that they have never worked on me but I still long to find one that does. It is the quest of my life! And I need one now more than ever due to the fact that going to Cabo with a group of your college friends means a lot of late nights... and I will need all the help I can get the next morning as I try to camouflage into my pool chair the next day until about 3 PM.

I mean- they just look so cute on people...

But for some reason, not on me. But I will persevere and continue to try. 

2013 is the year that Fedoras (and 'fetch') WILL happen.

I love fedoras. That said, I have bangs, which take the term 'hat hair' to a new level. So for me? Fedoras are a no-go. On you I imagine they look adorbs! :)

Do NOT give up your hunt for the perfect fedora! I had the same problem where I couldn't find one that fit properly AND looked good on me, and just last summer our next door neighbor (of all people) gave me one because she saw it at a store and thought of me. It. Was/Is. Perfect. Keep the hope alive! :)

Fedoras don't fit on my giant head :(

In response to your comment, I have no set travel plans for the US. I'm at camp for 2 months and then who knows where i'm off to for 6 weeks of travel, literally nooo plans except that i will fly back to Australia from LA. Equal parts exciting and terrifying! :) xx

My first impulse was to laugh (sorry). The fedoras remind me of the hats my late father used to wear. Unfortunately I wound up giving them away to charities more than a decade ago. I was never into those though I do own a nice vintage cowboy hat from Arizona. I can picture you in a cowboy hat. Maybe a straw one for some shade. I hope you find what you're looking for - I would think in this internet age you will find the hat you want. The photos of you eating make me wish I had good teeth again. I used to love to pig out on pepper and egg heros or pizza. Enjoy your time in Cabo and your camouflaging into a pool-chair relaxation! :)

I think I look absolutely ridiculous in a fedora but I bought a cheap one at WalMart (I think?) several years ago before a vacation and OHMYGOD has that thing been everywhere. Jamaica, Colorado, Indiana...it's just so damn handy. My $8 fedora has seen many a good time! I'd say, just take the plunge ;)
