blue-banded

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!

Be sure to take lots of pics. Wishing you a grand time in Kentucky.

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.

you really rock that hat, have an amazing time at the wedding!

Jill said...

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

I, too, am off on a wedding road trip this weekend. Have fun!

I've been craving the classic button down lately and fedoras have pushed their way into favorite hat status. So I love this look.
