See, I have a bonnet kind of like that. It’s really more a bonnet-headband hybrid, but I call it the bonnet and I love it. Perfect for the average day around here, which includes both a ponytail and cold ears. However, someone that lives with me doesn’t fully appreciate it.

Case in point:

O: Hey, Emily.

E: Yeah, what’s up?

O: The 20’s called. They want their hat back.

E:

O: The 1720’s! The last time those were popular! Ha, ha.

E:

I’m sad to report that my Wikipedia search last night gave some proof to his theory.

In the mid-17th and 18th century ‘house bonnets’ worn by women and girls were generally brimless
headcoverings which were secured by tying under the chin, and which covered no part of the forehead.
They were worn indoors, to keep the hair tidy, and outdoors, to keep dust out of the hair…
The most common kind of bonnet worn today is a soft headcovering for babies.

At least I don’t wear it tied under my chin.

Anymore.
