Skippy Says: Green Hat (Help A Skippy Out)

We're all friends here, right? I'll take that silence as affirmation. So, friends, I need a truly honest opinion from you. Kapish?

I bought a hat. A lovely green hat. Only problem is, Ryan says it makes me look a lot younger than I already do, and since he doesn't like feeling like a pedophile he's urging me to return it. I'm torn-- on one hand, I think it's adorable; on the other, when I wear it I make my husband feel like a pedophile. You see my dilemma. Thoughts? To keep or not to keep?




So What Do You Think?

  3. It's cute and it looks nice with your hair :D why not wear it when Ryan isn't around? I do that when my husband dislikes anything I've bought!

  5. It looks great with your hair. I don't think it makes you look too young at all. But...if it makes you AND your hubby uncomfortable, then maybe you should return it. Or just wear it when he's not with you! Heather

    I like the hat and it is a nice color. I do have to say though if my husband really dislikes something I don't like it as much anymore. Ahh husbands!

  8. I like the hat and the color on you! I have to agree though..it does make you look young! If your hubby isn't a fan, I would return it and buy something else. My ex hated red lipstick on me and I haven't worn it since. Not sure why, but we should trust our man's (ex-man's) opinions. :)

  9. K. So, I'm a hat person. And as a qualified hat person, that cloche is 1) a gorgeous green 2) very flattering on your skintone 3) so unique and 4) you already wore it.... You should tell your honey that it's not going back!

    In all seriousness, if you feel uncomfortable wearing it around him (and you actually like hanging with your man), then you may not wear it often. And that would be a shame, so it may need to go back (as sad as I am to write it). But you never know, he may change his mind. My hubby didn't like red lipstick on me, so I didn't wear it for years. I busted out a new red lipstick and somehow he loves it now! Men... go figure!

  11. Try to dress a hat with other clothes, to create other image. And can, it will be pleasant to the husband? The hat is magnificent! It is a pity to leave it!
    P.S. Sorry for my English!

  12. Thats a good point! I don't know if I'd wear it a lot, but I don't know if I'm just saying that because I don't really won any other hats that I could wear...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks Ki! That's a good compromise :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks Heather! You're definitely right. I'm not sure yet if it makes me truly uncomfortable or if it's just something a bit out of my comfort zone I could get used to and love.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I know, that's exactly how I feel! I loved it when I bought it, but now he's made me so unsure!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think that's a really good point. There's plenty of things I love that he loves too, so it's not like it's hard to find something to agree on :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks Samanatha!! I think that's what it may come down to- if he doesn't like it I won't want to wear it around him, and I like to hang out with him pretty often :) I'll see if I can just wear it around the house to see if he gets used to it, and if he doesn't I might just return it :(
    p.s.- I haven't worn it out yet (tag is still on)- I just put it on for the pictures- otherwise I would not be returning it :)

  18. That's what i thought too- thanks Kileen!

  19. Thanks so much- that's a great idea! I'll try it with some other outfit to see if he likes it better :)

  20. I did, and I totally appreciate the honest opinion- thank you!

    ehehe, great hat!!! he is just jealous that you look younger than him, so maybe you should get him a hat too so he can look young as well- problem solved :D

  24. Keepkeepkeep!!! And I say next time you go out with him, take it with you, throw it on as a surprise and call him "daddy" in front of a bunch of strangers...lol...I'm all for going to extremes, especially when it involves playing a joke on the hubs ;)

  25. Lol! Sorry I meant you "already wore it" as a fake excuse that you can't return it! I figured it was still returnable! :0)

  26. Keep it, it's a gorgeous colour and it really suits you :).

    Tell your husband that being a pedophile is a privilege. Keep the hat- its lovely!

  28. The color goes great with your hair and skin tone!! Show Ryan all the girls opinions and he'll just have to change his mind :-)

  33. I'm so inlove with your hat!
    Seems like I've been seeing lots of green from many bloggers.

    P.S. Thanks for your lovely comment!
    Thanks for following. FYI. I'm already following you.
    See you around.

  34. Lol- sorry! This is the problem with writing and not talking! I couldn't tell and wanted to clarify just in case :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hehe, thanks Sayaka! Maybe...but once he sets his mind on something it's hard to change it :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. LOL- love it! I am definitely doing that :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Lol, good plan! Thank you! I'll definitely check it out :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Keep it keep it! I love hats! I say just wear it with something more mature, like a blazer?! Maybe that will solve the problem! :)

  39. That's a really good idea! I'm new to hats and clearly have no clue :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. It's an absolute keeper. So freakn' cute on you. I think it makes you look stylish and sophisticated. I don't see the added youngness factor at all. It's a great color for you. It's perfectly shaped for your head. I seriously love it on you.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think you look great in it! I'd totally keep it. My ex-boyfriend was short so I always had to wear flats or tiny, TINY heels around him. But that didn't mean I stopped wearing my 5+ inch heels when I wasn't out and about with him! If he's not comfortable with it, don't wear it around him. BUT I think you should keep it and rock it when you want to. :)

  42. i like it! but then again, i'm mistaken for a twelve-year-old pretty often! :)

  43. Hmm...I think it's adorable and am actively trying to look younger so I'd keep it just for that reason - ha! But I think if you wore it with dressier clothes it wouldn't look so young...

    ReplyDelete
  44. Really? Thank you so much!! I was leaning towards returning it but you really just changed my mind (at least for now, I'm fickle :))

    ReplyDelete
  45. Aw, thanks Ashley! I think that's a great idea! I'm with him ton, but I do just go out and about by myself or with my girlfriends too so I can just wear it then :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Lol, thanks!! Glad to know I'm not alone :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I have the opposite problem...I'm 25 but look 14 so I could use aging a few years:) But I think wearing it with dressier/ more sophisticated clothes is a great idea- thanks Katherine!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Skippy I love that hat!!! It's a keeper! If this becomes too much of a hassle, I'll happily email you my address and gladly take it off your hands. HAHAHAHAHAHA Have a great evening girl!

  49. Skippy, this hat looks awesome on you and I don't think you should return it! It's gorgeous up against your red hair.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think if you go with the red lippies like you have in this picture (in addition to whatever else you may be wearing on the bottom) you're not going to look childlike. AND here's my question: this is a hat in the 1920s cloche style that adult women, especially flappers, who were the "wild women" of thier day, wore - err - why does Ryan associate that w/ children?!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I don't think it's the type of hat that he thinks is childish, but rather it's look on me. I have a pretty young looking face (I'm 25 but often get mistaken for 16) and I think he thinks it looks like I'm playing dress-up in it. Which I can kind of see...

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh my gosh - I laughed so hard when I read this post. Maybe it's the word pedophile? Although that really isn't a funny word...but then again it kinda is in this context. Anyhoo!!)

    The hat is gorgeous! Love the color, the bow, everything. Keep it and maybe wear it for walking around town, meeting up with girlfriends, or even just sitting at your computer blogging! :-) If none of those works, you can do a giveaway for it on your blog. haha!

  53. Thanks Marion! If I decide not to keep it a giveaway is a great idea :)
