I have become obsessed with hats. (yes, really obsessed, like I keep looking for the PERFECT one, trying them on, searching online – there’s no middle ground with me!). I started with just a floppy cotton hat from target to protect my hair from the sun at the pool but then I saw a lady leaving target wearing this straw fedora FROM target and knew I needed one. I didn’t buy that exact one, but I did buy a similar one (from Target) with faux studded leather – it’s very cool. So now, I have to determine if I’ll actually wear a hat enough to invest in a “better” one, or just stick to the cheapies.
I’ve never really liked hats, or at least I never thought of them as fashion accessories; they were more necessities (I wear a cap for walking outside, and a sun hat at the pool) than part of my outfit. But now that I’m seeing more and more ladies wearing hats, I’m starting to love the look. My problem is that I (of course) think most hats look funny on me, and all my life, I’ve thought that wearing a hat indoors is rude and inappropriate. Especially at restaurants. But maybe it’s not? I asked my husband on Saturday if I could wear my fedora out – and also to lunch – because I didn’t want to wash my hair, and he thought it was inappropriate. But then Sunday night at sushi happy hour, there was a girl wearing HER fedora inside. What are your thoughts? I guess if it’s part of your outfit, it’s okay? But then again, ugly trucker hats can also be part of an outfit, and they’re DEFINITELY not okay 😉
Do you wear hats? What’s your favorite type? Do you wear them all year? or just in the summer??
