The Home Alone Hat

I spied this hat in Primark a few weeks before Christmas. It instantly reminded me of Kevin's hat of Home Alone fame and knew it had to be a part of my life. I'm a secret stars fan, I love a good star pattern but I feel they're a little emo-tweeny at times. Every now and then something starry will sneak its way into my basket and this hat had it all going on. I like what hats can add to an outfit, this one is especially good for simple outfits or an all black look.

I've been living in this camo jacket since I bought it, back in August. I find, surprisingly, it's really easy to style. It adds an edge and I love the grunginess of it. I'm planning a 'How I Style: Camo Jacket' post and the photos have made me notice just how versatile it is.

These cream Vans are another recent addition to my shoe-drobe. I've pretty much lived in them since they arrived and I'd definitely recommend them for anyone on the hunt for a neutral, go-with-anything pair of trainers.

One of my biggest problems when it comes to outfit styling is wanting to wear too much at once. I don't mean like the time Joey put on all of Chandler's clothes but rather my accessories tend to be bold and I have to remind myself not to wear them all at once. When I'm rooting around my wardrobe I find neutral clothes really boring, yet when I see them styled on other people I like it.

What styling dilemmas do you have?
