In case you missed meeting me at American Hat Makers’ Hat Day in the Sun in Capitola on June 19th, here’s my outfit and stunning hat for this week’s Hannah’s Hats & Heels.
To complement my handmade Black and Lavender Derby Dallas Hat and sassy bow (Double G Hats), I chose a bold camisole from CAbi – purple, pink, yellow and green – so I could keep cool while I was busy passing out hats.
To protect my shoulders from the sun (the whole point of National Hat Day in the Sun), I chose a mint cardigan with flowing lines that dresses up my outfit without making me uncomfortable in the heat. I added black stylish fitted shorts – casual and professional at the same time – and chunky beige wedges – to lengthen my silhouette.
These are all basic pieces in my wardrobe that turn into a fancy outfit when I top it with my Derby Dallas Hat. The bow really makes a statement – I received so many compliments that I’m suggesting we add this to our line in the upcoming seasons.
Usually lavender might seem a bit light and can fade into the background – not here! With my bold cami and pretty cardi, I was anything but invisible.
Send me your favorite black and bold ensemble. I’ll help you match a hat — so you can protect your gorgeous head and face and look amazing!
