Summer Hats

Good summer hats are hard to find. Ones where you can actually step out of the house and not feel like a goofball or like you're wearing a costume.... I think I found myself a nice one at Cafe Society last week. A pretty little floppy straw hat from the 40's and I can't wait to wear it at the Cape this weekend! (it'd be a teeny bit better if it were brown instead of burgundy, but you can't be picky about these things!!)

my new summer hat


In the mean time, I wore it out for a little movie date at the Coolidge with best twin mouse friend Jeff. Here we are loitering around near a church on some mysterious road in Brookline.

Summer Days


Sometimes when I get dressed I feel like a 60's girl dressing up in her mom's old clothes. I think yesterday was a particularly good example of that.

I love your outfit! :) It seems like the perfect, late summer look. I've been on the hunt for a summer hat since February, and still have yet to find my ideal (or maybe I'm being too picky?). ;) I love the wide, floppy brim on yours!

Ah! It's darling! Is that a little hat pin, I spy?

I found a perfect floppy straw hat last week, but left it in Maine. :/ I'm dying waiting to be reunited with it.

That's an amazing outfit! The hat really takes it to another level.

I've been looking for a nice straw hat myself, but I can't seem to find any that's satisfying enough...
