  1. LOVE the new layout and LOVE that picture of you! Beautiful! :)


    1. Thanks, it was a gift from a blog reader with great talent. The hats are actually hats I own!

  2. I think that one of most successful tips when it comes to wearing a hat is to opt for a style that you love. You want to feel comfortable in your hat and like it's an extension of who you are. If you're overly self-conscious of your chapeau or doubtful of how you look in it, it's likely to show on your face and others will likely detect that you're uncomfortable too.

    1. I agree. This tip works well in the other direction, too. If you are confident in a hat, other people will just assume that you are more fashionable than they.

  3. I really need to be better about wearing hats!
