A gray day (in a good way)

On Saturday, I went shopping in an outfit I made last summer -

I'm kind of stuck on gray as my favorite color right now (is gray a color?), but it often needs to be paired with some punch like this zigzag skirt.  Guess who designed the skirt fabric?  Jay McCarroll, the winner of the very first Project Runway!  I am obsessed with this fabric.  I made my daughters skirts out of it -

...and used it for purse lining -

...and made a scarf.  It's probably a good thing that I'm starting to run out.

So anyway, I set off in my gray shirt and zigzag skirt to search for a summer hat.  I have been looking for a hat, because every time I'm in the sun for an long time, I burn my scalp.  I have a "beachy" looking hat, but I wanted something that looked more "city".  So, I visited Urban Outfitters-

I really liked the cream colored hat -

...but took home the gray (of course) -

By the way, Urban Outfitters has tons of cute stuff right now.  I had to use a lot of self restraint to not try anything on.  However, I did take a few photos of their quirky cool decor -
