Hats are not my thing. I have a big head. (And probably in more ways than one!) The circumference of my head is big. Hats don't fit me. They pop up like corks no matter how tight I pull them down. Those cute baseball caps? Nope. My ears sit too high on my head, so in order for the hat to go low enough to stay on--my ears have to be somewhat inside the cap. You could say I'm the head mess!
The one hat that does fit is a stocking cap, but they ruin my hair. Ear muffs have always looked goofy to me.
Then I discovered 180's. They are a-mazing!
These are ear muffs, but go behind your head instead of over the top of it. They have a little hinge like mechanism in them that makes them grip, but also allows you to fold them. I wear them like a cuff bracelet when I go inside for a bit. When I'm wearing them, they go under my hair--and you can't see them. And warm...! 180's are just the best.
I'd like to say this was the first time my 180's have gone missing. I can't lie. Last year I lost them for about a week. I searched. And searched. And searched. Any idea where I found them?
My colleague and trailer buddy found them wrapped around the outside passenger door handle of her car. I had probably dropped them on my way into school between our two cars. Someone must have found them, thought that they were my colleague's, and hooked them to her door so she would find them. Since she doesn't use that door when she drives her 12 mile round trip, we have no idea how long they had been hanging there! Probably a couple of days. Good grief!
180's are the perfect solution for the hat challenged! You'd think I'd take better care of them!
This post is not a paid advertisement for 180's--though they should feel free to send me money.
