Head Covering of the Week

Today's Head Covering of the Week is my favorite winter hat. I decided I'd posted so many snood pictures this week (because I'm wearing it so much!) that I would go with something a little different today.

This hat really eased the transition when I started covering my head at Mass. I felt like I stood out so much in my white mantilla, and when winter came around it didn't seem to match anything! So I picked this hat up at Target. I felt like I blended in so much more and when spring came around again I was so comfortable covering my head (and I knew that everyone expected it, instead of being surprised) that I could switch back and forth between hats and veils without dealing with any sort of nervousness! Lately I've been wearing my veils more frequently (they fit into a diaper bag more easily!) but I do go through hat weeks where I tend to favor hats! It just depends on my mood.


  1. ... and it suits you :)

    I like your blog.
    Hope to meet you if ever you do come to Rome!

  2. I agree with Gabriella: looks great!

  3. Thanks you too! I hope we get a chance to come to Rome. The Angelicum is definitely my husband's first choice for his next grad school. We're just trying to figure out how to make it work.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
