A Hankering For . . . A Summer Hat

I sometime wish I was born back in an era when hats where fashionable.

Such a simple, handy item to use but it really made an outfit one's own.

Gone are the day's of Easter bonnets, and pretty bows set atop little hats with a clutch purse to match.

This image shows vintage suits for women. Schiap created pieces such as suits for the everyday woman. Schiap used her creativity to advance women through clothing and through the contribution of the feminist movement by giving women the opportunity to become socially equal with men along the lines of fashion.

Instead we have baseball caps and visors.

Useful yes - - -

You won't find me on the Lacrosse side lines without one during my daughters games - - - 

Each time I pull my visor onto my head I can't help but wish for something a little more exciting and pretty to shade my eyes and ward off headaches from squinting behind my not quite dark enough sunglasses as I bake in the sun while balancing on my wobbling folding chair and yelling "Get It, Get It" to the girls on the field.

So I've been doing a little researching on Pinterest and I think I've found a few examples of the type of hat I would like to try out.

Nothing fancy, just simple and stylish to pair with a super casual look of cut-offs and a simple t-shirt.

Here's what I've come up with. . . 

casually chic.  jeans, white shirt, hat and heels.

Not at all sure if I'm stylish to pull off the look but I sure would love to give it a try.

How about you?



I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
