LET'S TALK ABOUT // HATS


happy friday post on a monday! this weekend was really, really wonderful. i had family in town + stayed up all night talking + ran all over the dang place instead of getting any of the things done that i was supposed to get done, but you know what, it was worth it. i'm hoping to post a few photos of our slumber party soon, but until then, hats. 

i've been really into hats this winter, but even more so lately thanks to this crazy confused weather the city's been sending us. one minute it's warm + the next you're parasailing down the sidewalk, i'm telling you, this march is a good one. winter/spring transitional dressing is always a little tricky, which is why i've been clinging to the hats i think. when it's colder than expected + your coat's back home, a hat will save you. when it's warmer than expected out, a floppy fedora will help you look surprisingly summery + carefree. i can't wait to bust out my straw hats once the weather is consistently summery (i've got an amish straw hat waiting in the wings for this summer + i tell you i really really can't wait for it), but in the meantime, i really love the transitional look of a felt floppy fedora set against a set of bare legs. 

a few inspirational images that i've been pinning to my pinterest boards + a few of my favorite hats from around the web, coming right up.

  2. Hats! I might have a not so small collection of hats that are awaiting summer myself : ) Also, I gave up Pinterest for Lent and miss seeing your gorgeous pins, so thanks for a little hit to get me through my forty days!

  3. hats hats hats hats! HATS! The only hat I've ever spent decent money on because I loved it so much that I couldn't walk away from it without feeling as though something was missing from my life, I foolishly had with me on Space Mountain at Disneyland Paris a few months ago... and of course it fell out of the carriage as we were loop-de-looping around like crazy... Destined to be at the cavernous bottom of the ride along with countless other random bits and pieces people foolishly bring with them on that thing, as well as probably puke and other unpleasant things, forevermore... Devastation ensued!!!
