We love Chicago, but sometimes it really feels like the city is out to get us. Just when we were getting excited to unearth our spring trenchcoats and — gasp! — possibly even pack away our bulky sweaters, we're hit with another snowstorm. But, if we've learned anything from our time in this fair city, it's that patience is truly a virtue. One of these days we'll be able to flaunt our warm-weather favorites, but in the meantime we'll amuse ourselves with stocking up on all the brightly colored, sun-kissed items we can get our hands on.
And where are we starting? We're seriously crushing on this adorable (and oh-so-affordable) fedora from Vince Camuto. It's the perfect accessory for an afternoon picnicking by the lake, or spending our Saturdays basking in the sun and knocking back margaritas at Big Star. Plus, at only $32, the price tag is friendly enough that we've got money left over to pay that nagging heat bill in the meantime. Grab one for yourself, and maybe say a little prayer to the weather gods, too.
