How to make a plain winter hat into a cute winter hat

This may actually be the easiest how-to ever.

Step one: go get a hat. Mine was $5.95 at H&M. It's pretty boring (don't worry, H&M, I won't hold it against you):
Step two: go get some bow hairclips. Mine were $3.95 for a pack of 2, also at H&M. If you live in Boston, you can also check out Dajuli Sparkles (the website is a little creepy and not very informative but it does have the address) on Newbury Street for some awesome bow clips:
Step 3: Clip the bow onto the hat:
ZOMG cutest hat ever!!!!
All in all, this beautiful creation cost me just under $8 to make and took all of 2 seconds: Today's outfit was a keeper. At first I was a little iffy about mixing neutrals but Monique assured me it looked fine:

I believe this skirt is meant to be worn at the natural waist, but as I am slightly taller than average this left just about nothing to the imagination. So I bought it in a Large instead of a Medium and wore it around my love handles instead. Unfortunately it's still a little too big and at one point today I looked down and saw that it had pulled a 180 on me. Like it was exactly backwards. Perfectly centered, too. Who else has skills like this?Bah! Another one with the hat:
The view from our living room is getting better and better each day as the leaves change:

hat and clip- H&M
top- BP Nordstrom
skirt- Charlotte Russe
tights- Hue
shoes- target

ZONG- you look adorable. I have some big flowery pins that I was going to add to my hat. I'll have to take photos to show you how it turns out :)

okay the hat bow idea is brilliant and the best part... it's easy! I'm not really a crafter, but I think I could handle it ;)

I am from DC! I lived in the district but went to HS at Potomac in McLean. What about you?

PS I love the outfit, and that skirt is adorable!

Hat is adorable, and the outfit looks great on you. I've never perfectly centered a skirt, but it's gotten close.
