Well, I’m in trouble. It’s spring, which means the sun is coming out and I want to sit outside to read, work, and garden. And that means another thing: I need to be wearing more hats. As someone who’s always low in vitamin D, I could use the sunshine, but I’m a bit of a nut when it comes to shade (you know, skincare and all of that). As I assess my hat collection, I really only have two warm weather designs, this one, and this one. Now let’s be honest, two hats just ain’t going to cut it for me, and while I still have a few weeks to enjoy transitional fedoras, I need to bulk up my spring/summer collection.
And let me get this question out of the way: is it okay to have a fabulous hat that’s just for gardening? Is that a crime? Because I really think I need this one for days when I’m tending to my gorgeous plants. Oh, and to look glamorous in – duh!
So, while I bite my cheeks and try to decide which hat will be the best addition to my wardrobe, I thought I’d share my favorite picks from Janessa Leone’s latest Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Here it goes!
Phoebe – I love the classic neutrals of this design, but the double band makes it feel completely unique! Click here to shop!
Willow – Makes me think of classic English summer outfits and would look great dressed up with a lovely cocktail dress, or down with jeans and a tee. Click here to shop!
Eve – A simple, wide-brim summer hat that looks natural and timeless. I love the multi-colored straw woven through this Panama hat. Click here to shop!
Rosie – A softer and shorter version of the Willow, I love the bolero style to this hat. It’s all garden parties and polo matches. Click here to shop!
Tabatha – Color is exciting and unexpected in a Panama, and I love this deep, rich blue. Click here to shop!
Lysa – This ball cap style feels so old-fashioned to me, and it’s one of the most exciting and unexpected hats in the bunch. Lovely! Click here to shop!
Elle – A high, cowboy style Panama in black, I think this hat is so dashing. Click here to shop!
Lindley – A hat that would literally look great on anyone, this low-crowned, thin-banded beauty will keep you shaded in style. Click here to shop!
Right now I have the hots for Eve, Willow and the Lysa, but I’ll be honest, it’s really hard to choose one of them. Which one is your favorite?
