More than just historical clothing --there's a bit of everything going on here!

What's on MY head.
I decided to try wearing the wimple and veil under my hood, and was surprised that it was not terribly bulky. It was toasty warm, though -- the linen created many pockets for warm air to gather. I wouldn't be at all surprised if this was a standard procedure back in the day. See for yourself!
Wimple and veil with hood down for indoors...
...and with the hood up, ready for outdoor work or play!
I have no idea why my phone so drastically changed the color tones in those pictures -- I took them about a minute apart. The top one is a very good representation of the actual color of the hood. Don't I look all pink-cheeked and merry? It's because instead of saying "cheese" when I take a picture, I say "Whiskey!"
