Hats off to Sunday

How do you accessorize a dress with a non-removable self belt?  Why, with a hat of course.  In an effort to prove the British aren’t the only ones who can wear hats to all occasions, I donned one Sunday morning for church.  (Yes, insert the “you know you live in the South when” comment here- although technically I live in the SW, but who’s counting.)

B loves it when I wear hats, and let’s face it they are a really fun and slightly unexpected accessory.  I added some flowers (super quick DIY project) to this plain navy hat to punch up the style and color and tie it in nicely with the bright orange dress. It’s a simple outfit really, but the hat just makes it feel polished and pulled together.  I got tons of compliments; which, let’s face it, always make a girl’s day!

I’m loving the pocket trend in dresses and skirts lately.  It’s nice to have a place to stash lip gloss or the car key without having to carry a purse.  Although one of these days, I’ll have to take pictures with some of my purse collection…

So what say you, pockets or no pockets?

  3. Too cute!! I am so not fashionable so though I love those things, I end up not buying them because I feel silly.

    • I was the same way!! I credit my husband with getting my out of my comfort zone and into hats. I’m still a little self conscious, but I literally received at least a dozen in person compliments on this one!
