Are you confident that you have chosen the best style and shape for your head?
Hats are not my favourite accessory.
I need the protection from the harsh rays of the sun and the cold winter weather so I reluctantly wear them.
Straw hats make up the bulk of my hat collection and I regularly wear them on the boat and in the garden.

I'd love to feel more confident wearing hats.
Perhaps my awkward feelings are similar to those that some women have about wearing and tying scarves.
I have had many conversations with women who say that they love the look of scarves on other people but they get all muddled when trying to tie them and end up taking them off in frustration...
that about sums up my hat attitude.
I bought this vintage felt fedora a few years ago thinking that I would wear it.
I put it on, look in the mirror, laugh and take it off again.
This photo is a few years old, the hat still resides in my closet.
I think Adrienne looks fabulous in hats...she writes the fabulous blog Rich Life on a Budget.
This is my winter cold weather hat...
I wear it to keep my head warm.

My gardening hat...
Mother and I ventured into the newly renovated Hospice Thrift shop on Cook Street and I spied a new hat.
I put it on and Mother said "that is lovely on you."
"You MUST buy it or I'll buy it for you."
The ladies in the shop agreed it was a great hat on me.
well you can see it here for yourselves.
It is made of linen by the Lillie Cohoe Company which makes hats in Nelson BC.
The hat is sitting on top of my bureau,
I have looked at it everyday since purchasing it
I have tried it on several times
it has not been worn outside of the house.
I do love the hat but I wonder if and when I will wear it.
I'm wondering how you feel about hats...
maybe it's just me.
Where do you stand on hats?
