How do you feel about hats?

I was never a hat person till a few years ago. Here in the US most people must own at least one baseball cap even if they never wear it. I found it easy to start wearing caps to sporting events like NASCAR, baseball and football, and then I found myself gravitating to wearing them out and about on a bad hair day. Now I own several and I’ve just added a J.Crew felt Fedora to my collection. I LOVE it. This is a S/M I’m wearing but if you have a lot of hair you may need to size up.

This Fedora is a perfect size for me – the brim isn’t too big and it sits nicely on top of my head. I’m always scared of being overwhelmed by hats having short hair. It comes in grey, navy and black, and all three colors are classics.

If I had longer hair I’d love any of these broader brimmed hats from ASOS.

Have you been tempted by a Fedora yet? I think you’ll be surprised how easy they are to wear – I certainly got plenty of compliments at the Mall this morning – though the Husband says he feels like he should be sitting in The Blind Beggar with me…or that I have an uncanny resemblance to Dave Angel, Eco Warrier.

Yesterday I was dashing around and had to throw something on quickly after yoga. This River Island dress is brilliant – simple to wear yet it certainly makes a statement.

After doing a bunch of returns at the Mall this morning and cleaning my windows we’re now off for margaritas and tacos – perfect! Happy weekend!

      Oooh let’s see a photo – I think it would look lovely on top of your bobbed hair – it makes me laugh how everyone thinks they have either a pea head or a huge head! What is a normal sized head? x

      But you have lots of hair so you can get away with some great broad brims – you’d look great in a big floppy fedora. xx

      They are easy to wear once you try them a few times – I actually forgot I was wearing this it was so comfortable! x

    I was trying on hats in Nordstrom last night. I have a pea head, so it’s hard for me to find a hat that fits. I did find a cloche that I really liked. I might have to go back and get it. Love your fedora.

      You should definitely try this JCrew one – I have a small head too and the S/M is perfect. I love cloche hats – I need to try a couple!

      I can’t believe it is warmer there than it is here! It looks like winter out of the window right now! I am thrilled with my hat collection and love wearing them but I do think some are far better with long hair!

    The fedora looks absolutely lovely on you, Poppy! In fact, I love your entire outfit! I am definitely a hat wearing kind of girl, and always have been from the time I was young. I own several fedoras, baseball caps, a panama hat, cowboy hats, and wide-brim hats for the beach, hiking, or gardening to keep the sun at bay.

      I have a great Cowboy hat that my Husband bought me – it used to be worn regularly on our pre-kid trips to Nashville!

    I love wearing hats particularly cloches and fedoras, but my daughter says I can’t wear them more than once a week on the school run because she didn’t want me to be known as ‘that weird hat lady’!

      Ha – trust me there are far worse things to be known as! My daughter actually loves hats too and is always trying to steal mine!
