The many hats I wear...

With the right hat, nothing else matters.”  -LaPaloma Hats
Oh, to be a woman who can wear hats.  I love hats, but more than hats, I love women (and men too, I guess) that are able to pull off a good, strong hat.   Today, I stumbled upon such a woman that made me really ponder the subject of hats. You do realize it’s not everyday that you encounter such a person.  This post is dedicated to those people….the hat people.

I wear many hats.  Figuratively, not literally, of course.  Running your own business, you are destined to “wear” a hat or two.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I have literally worn a hat or two in my day.  I can definitely sport a sun friendly fedora or Bermuda hat at the lake, beach, etc.  But, this isn’t something the average joe can’t pull off, so it’s definitely nothing to brag about.

I like to think that in some far off land, I could be one of these grandiose, larger than life, lovely people that pull off hats in an every day sort of way. These fabulous people treat putting on a hat like brushing their teeth.  They never question whether it is a hat kind of day, or doubt that they can pull off such a hat.  Those thoughts would never cross their minds.  Why?  Because they’re hat people….that’s why.

Until we sail away to some far off land, where we become the mysteriously magnificent hat-wearing people that we dream of being, here are some pics to tie you over.  You’re welcome.

                       Ok, someone has to invite me to an event where I can wear a hat.



 I had to end on my favorite hat-wearing icon.  I couldn't help myself.  The one and only...

And, yes, I have been known to cut someone for disagreeing with me.  Ok, well... maybe not cut, but definitely give them a "You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about" face.  Sorry, Kate, but Audrey still has you beat on this one. 

Wishing you light, love, and a fabulous hat day!


  1. Audrey's my fav, too! She was a good public servant. Love the blog, Erin! Hope things continue to go well with your business.

  2. Thanks so much, Jessi! I was just checking out your blog this morning. Things are great here and I hope that Argentina is treating you well! We will have to get together for a supper club when you get back. Maybe you can make some traditional Argentinian food for us?? Just an idea. ;)
