Hat People





What's a perfect topper for a tasty brunch with the B.F.F than a modest excursion to the nearby mall to do a little hat shopping? We paid a visit to our nearby Westfield Downtown Plaza and Old Town Sacramento in search of some summer hats. We hit pay-dirt at Macy's. There was a big hat sale, and lots of really wonderful choices. While straw hats seem to be le hat du jour, we both fell for a big floppy white cotton sun hat, as modeled by Kelly top photo. I chose to model a Jessica Simpson wide-brimmed cotton print hat that matched my outfit perfectly in red, white & blue. (Not shown: our kick-ass carmel apples rolled in butter-brickle)

I just love trying on hats. Even though my big head limits what I can purchase. :)

the Citizen Rosebud said...

Fashion Butter, I have the opposite problem: my head is so small! Good for vintage hats but bad for new ones. ; )

Nice hats!;)

I love hat shopping, although wheneverrrr I go, it's more ridiculous than good. I always look silly! You fared better than I ever did!

p.s. I nominated you for an award! xo

the Citizen Rosebud said...

Sarah: thank YOU so much! You're such a sweetheart, and I'm honored to be included in your list. xo.

IsQ: Kelly bought the rad white one, and a straw hat. I left with nothing.

I love that second hat. J Simpson's shoes and accessories always surprise me. I would never think the two of us would share personal style, but I am constantly drawn to her items by accident.

the Citizen Rosebud said...

@ Robyn: Right? Whoever does the designing for the Jessica Simpson label does a great job....good shoes and hats, for sure. I'm always a little embarrassed when I grab a great platform shoe and it's a Jessica Simpson, but hey, good for her on making affordable fashions!

I love that hats are coming back full force! I used to wear a black felt boler in the 80's (yes, I'm THAT old!)

You and your BFF have inspired me to look around for the perfect summer hat to keep off the rays.

Smiles,
Diane

the Citizen Rosebud said...
