Is it just me, or does this sculpture look like a prop from an abandoned mid-1990s Radiohead music video?
Not sure about the area in which you call home, Internets, but around here, this winter has been lacking a bit in actual winterness. That's not to say that it's been completely unseasonable around here--there's no buds on the trees yet that I can see, and it's still a bit cool outside--but even so, winter appears to have failed to launch as a season this year.
Case in point: Tuesday morning, I awoke to snow steadily falling outside my window. It fell thickly enough that TH had to clear the sidewalk outside our house (which, I might add, was the first time we'd had to do that all season long.) Finally, it looked like winter might actually happen, getting in just under the wire before spring arrived.
Flash forward not even 12 hours later, and all the snow was gone. Melted completely away. And honestly? That suits me just fine, although it does kind of make posting about things like toques and stocking caps seem a little silly. It's like talking about the merits of parkas during July--it just doesn't seem right.
Luckily there's still hoods to post about, which are far more versatile when it comes to weather conditions and such. Which is why I'm going to post about them today.
First up, there's this gray hooded infinity scarf, which is both lightweight enough to make for a decent fashion accessory and heavy-duty enough to function as a rain hood. It's like the best of both worlds!
More along the lines of an actual hood (and a bit thicker, to boot) is this mutlicolored bit of awesomeness, which I love for the sheer Rainbow Brite-like use of every color in the rainbow. And anything that reminds me of Rainbow Brite is doing something right, so on the blog it goes.
Of course, this wouldn't be HH unless I managed to find one hood that featured buttons as a means of embellishment. So I'm just gonna post this hood, say that I think the little button bouquet of flowers are adorable, and just move on.
This upcycled lined hood is both cozy-looking and environmentally green. Both of which gets it points in my book as well as gets it posted on this blog.
And just because I like to end things on a note in the key of rad, here's a lamb-eared cowl hood:
Or as I like to think of it, a softer take on Adventure Time's Finn's hat. Either way, it's still rad.
And on at note, that's it for this week. See you Monday!
