Cozy Hats


1. Anthropologie Gardenia Epoch Cloche $48.00
2. Anthropologie Solitary Hat $28.00
3. Modcloth Claudette Hat $67.99
4. Forever 21 Cable Sweater Visor Beanie $5.80
5. Target Xhilaration Herringbone Military Hat $9.99
6. Forever 21 Wool Rosette Cloche $7.50

As the September issues arrive in my mailbox and summer comes to a close, I find myself drawn towards hats in materials such as tweed and wool. I can picture myself wearing these with skinny jeans, over sized chunky sweaters, and cozy boots throughout the upcoming months. And what a great way to beat bad hair days!


On a separate note, today is Gabe's birthday! Happy birthday to my incredible husband, skilled photographer, unbiased taste tester, biggest fan, and very best friend!

Ooh, I totes need that Anthropologie Solitary Hat. Is it just me or does it remind you of something that Ali MacGraw wore in "Love Story"? Love it, love it!! :)

Brittany said...

Fall is my favorite time to shop! I'm LOVING these hats especially the red one.

I need to find a good looking hat for myself. I am not much of a hat person b/c I don't feel like they look good on me. But, after seeing these gorgeous ones I should give it a try. And a very Happy Birthday to Gabe. Hopefully, he is not working and you guys have a nice dinner planned!

I love the #2 and #6 which reminds me so much of the 1920's! Happy birthday Gabriel!!! Make it a good one! :)

Torrie said...

Your words about Gabe are very sweet... and I wish him a very happy birthday, and an even better year to come.

I feel really funny in hats (other than the 'baseball cap' here and there... and even that took a while for me to get used to)! But I look forward to seeing YOU in a cute 'fall hat!'

ari said...

Happy Birthday to Gabe! I love your choices for fall hats. As much as I've been fighting it, it is time for me to give in that summer is ending. That said, fall is my favorite season, so bring on the crisp weather and hats. I love #1!
