Even though I live in Florida, we still experience cold weather now and then. And I actually live in Northwest Florida, so it definitely gets colder than South Florida. My husband and I like to walk outside in the fall and winter for exercise, and sometimes I need something to keep my head warm.
I found the neatest head covering at Bealls Outlet. It's not quite a hat, and not quite earmuffs. It's a headband hat of sorts! I liked it so much that I got several in various colors. It consists of a wide band that has fleece on the side next to your head, and fake fur on the outer part. At the nape of the neck, there is a wide elastic band that makes the "hat" comfortable for most every size. It keeps my ears so warm, and when my ears are warm, I feel good. I have longer hair, and it looks very nice, and isn't as cumbersome as a full hat.
The colors I chose were white, purple, red, and black. Each one has silver threads running through the colored fake fur, which makes it very festive for the holidays, but perfectly appropriate all winter long.
The cost was only $4.00, and they retail for $10.00 each, so that was quite a savings! I am already enjoying them on colder winter walks, and I'm so glad that I found something like this!
