Hope everyone is having a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Yesterday I was in my happy place, shopping at antique stores searching for treasures to make jewelry and ended up with a trunk full of cool antiques to use as displays for my studio and the shop! I was certainly feeling inspired again. The last few weeks have been really busy and I haven't had much time to write, but I feel inspired again and have been doing some online shopping and wanted to share some new favorites.
If you are anything like me, finding a hat can be tricky. Most hats I walk past look adorable.... until I put them on and realize they don't work with my shape face. I have been known to buy a hat or two that I loved, that didn't love me as much. They make great displays but waste my money. That is certainly not the case with Lovely Bird hats. This is a company that can be dangerous for me since pretty much every hat looks good on. I have a few Lovely Bird hats and felt it was time to add to my collection. I purchased this gorgeous Buenos Aires Fedora in Heathered Brown and the best part, it was on sale! I needed a hat that really covered me from the sun but still looked cute and this hat is perfect. I have a very different shape face from the beautiful model in the picture above, so you can see that these hats look great on just about anyone. I added a few hats that are currently on my "need to purchase" list. The designer behind Lovely Bird is such a wonderful woman. I had the pleasure of knowing her when we were growing up and she was always someone I looked up to because she had such a great style and she was always so kind. Designer Jamie Haskell started working in the fashion industry 15 years ago. She dabbled in everything from retail to design and took her love for textiles into this beautiful line of hats. Inspired by her travels all over the world, you will find each style hat has a totally different vibe. Head over to her store for a list of retailers or buy on line and snag one now!
The rest of my outfit comes fromNordstrom, Free People, and Two Old Hippies! My boots are Two Old Hippies, my boho bag is from Free People, and my tunic is from Brass Plum at Nordstrom.
