Wanted to squeeze in a quick post before I leave for my Kentucky wedding road trip, so forgive me if this is a bit rushed. This outfit was from Sunday, when I felt like my boring neutral sportswear look could use a little brightening up. Enter this hat. I love the slightly unexpected blue band on this otherwise traditional fedora. B helped me a little with the brim. I seem to have terrible issues with adjusting hat brims properly...

I hope all of you have a lovely weekend! Hopefully I'll have some fun photos to share when I get back!

    You really look good in everything don't you? Love the spot of color, and the whole outfit is so good without being basic, boring or quirky. Like Goldilock's pudding: just right.

  23. That hat is fantastic. It immediately made me think of the word "haberdashery" which I think great hats are supposed to do.
