Bright Splashes of Color – Hannah’s Hats and Heels

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!


Black & White is Summer Chic – Hannah’s Hats & Heels 

Summer’s here and the most important must-wear accessory is a hat, of course. So many people buy hats and only wear them for special occasions. Not me!
Hats used to be worn every day for every reason – it’s my goal to make every day hat day. I’m going to show you how effortless it is to match a hat to your outfit.
For a stylish twist to Summer, here’s casual chic that will keep you cool while you look hot!
A cute black fitted short-sleeved jacket over white wide-leg trousers and black flats is the perfect match for this black Derby Dallas from Double G Hats.
I added a fabulous black bow to give it a unique twist. I can go from work to dinner and not miss a beat.
These are basic pieces you probably already have in your closet. Don’t be shy to wear black in the summer – brighten it up and add your own style stamp.
