Do Not Feed The Bears

When I used to work at SoLa we sold these locally designed furry hats for a brief period of time and whenever there weren't any customers in the store I would sneak over and try on one of these playful Chia Hats and try to decide which color I liked the best.  These hats are so ridiculous that they are almost like wearing a costume.  But that's what makes them so great.

I finally bought a Chia Hat at Parts and Labour the other day.  I decided to go with this little brown one.  I had to get a size small which according to the Chia Hat website is meant for small children.  Even though I'm 25 years old I guess I'm still a child at heart (and head).

The boots I am wearing in these photos I thought fit the "bear in the wilderness" theme really well.  They are handmade in Peru by a company based out of Austin.  These Inca Boots are somewhat Ugg-like but personally I think they are way cuter than Uggs.  I just hope these photos of me in the Inca Boots and little boy underwear don't encourage the UT girls to wear these boots with Nike shorts.
