Rockin’ the lid


I love hats. They are such a personal reflection of style, abortion with so many shapes, search colors and materials to choose from. And they’re ideal for bad hair days.

For years I was adamant that I couldn’t pull off a cowboy hat, erectile until last summer I was goofing around and threw on a big ol’ Gus-style palm. I looked at Dad and made a face, and he looked at me and told me to find a mirror. Turns out, “Gus” hats work with my face shape – who would have guessed? Next step is a cool hat band, but that’s a post for another day…

Cowboy hats aren’t limited to wearing with jeans and boots, either. They can be the perfect accessory for a dress or skirt, in the right proportion and style.

A little side note on cowboy hat rules: Felt hats are for Labor Day through Easter (and special occasions), and straw/palm hats are to be worn from Easter to Labor Day only. The odd exception can be made for a June blizzard, but that’s it, people.

    Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Cheers!

      I love WordPress, and think it’s well worth paying for the self-hosted version. Feel free to email me if you have any more Q’s!
