Oh, how I love fall. I love the changing leaves. I love pumpkin and cinnamon. Most of all, I love the crisp bite on the air as it catches the first hint of the chill to come.

This is a hat perfect for the beginnings of brisk weather when all you need is a little bit of something to keep you warmer – because we all want to get into our warm woolly hats as soon as possible, don’t we?
