Dress: Vintage, Necklace: Vintage
I feel weird if I don't have something on my head. Hair, it seems, is not enough. I don't wear hats all that often if it isn't to protect from cold weather or the sun, but I'm fond of barrettes off to the side and a pony tail is almost never left on it's own--it must have a ribbon. If I've got a scarf on my head it's usually because I felt I was missing something, or because I had little idea of what to wear that day and I always feel 50% more fashionable if I have a scarf on my head.
Last week I met up with Jess for a game of catch-up over lunch and macaron purchasing before heading to a nice little park area for a shoot so that Jess could get to know her new camera and photograph some hats for her shop. You can see a bunch of shots on her blog, and most of the hats are now listed, but I thought I'd post some of my favorites from the day! She captured some of the more fun aspects of my rather simple outfit for the day, so I'm sharing those as well.
My new favorite necklace, this is one of the things I spent my pennies on at Brimfield a few weeks ago. I've been calling it my Lady Mary necklace, because it's long and beaded and has a strange, thin and willowy look to it. As an added bonus it matched my nail polish (Chanel's 'June', which I totally splurged on but it's already become my favorite shade and, I'm convinced, goes with everything for summer thus far). I don't normally like to be so match-y, but in tiny doses it makes everything feel properly aligned.
This hat isn't listed yet, but I will update the link when it does go up. In the meantime, keep an eye on the shop if you're interested in it!
I love this hat a lot. It's pink, it has flowers, and a veil, and it fit my head. Someone needs to have this hat, I don't have a dress for it, but I know someone out there does.
I don't know that my dress particularly goes with these hats, but it's quickly turned into my grab-and-go summer weather solution. I bought it last October, just when the weather was starting to turn chilly, when my mind was fixed on sweaters and tights and I didn't care if I never saw another sun dress as long as I lived. But in that one moment I was given the gift of foresight, and I snatched it up and tucked it away for the long winter. I've already worn it about six times since it's gotten warm out, and am thanking my lucky stars I thought ahead, for once.
There ya go! Now that I have subjected you all to more pictures of my face, head on over to Jess's shop to see more details about the hats (and a few extra items, I only picked a few!) and take a peek at all the goodies she has over there!
