Hat Envy


I adore the sophisticated look of men and women in fashionable hats.  This summer, with the sun on my face almost every day,  I set off to find a hat for practical reasons.  This proved to be no easy task.  Each hat I tried on left me feeling silly and "costumey", I just couldn't pull it off.  Armed with this new knowledge about myself, oddly leaves me only wanting one even more. Especially, if it's one of these pieces, designed by Maison Michel, a haute couture hat operation fully owned and operated by Chanel. Do you ever wear hats, are you one of those lucky few with that certain "je ne se qua"?

  1. I just feel too self conscious in a hat unless I'm lying out by the pool but they are lovely.

  2. I love hats, and have every good intention of wearing one to protect my skin from the sun, but often forget to grab one. I think the trick to wearing a hat is to give yourself sometime to get used to it. The more comfortable you are in a hat, the more it looks like it belongs to you!

  3. great post! i would love to wear a fedora, like all the cute peeps I see in them. especially at the beach with a cute cover-up. but they look absolutely daft on me! oh well, will have to stick to ballcaps and larger brimmed hats

  4. I just can't pull it off! Plus I have a really hard time finding one that fits me the right way!

  5. I must admit I do love hats. They seem to be so plentiful in cities and really hip places but in the "burbs" you seem them much less. I always wear one while at the beach (here now) and do occasioinally get up the nerve to sport this cute fedora type hat I got last year....and everyone needs one great straw sunhat.

  6. I love hats too!! But can never seem to get my medium-length hair just right under them... I love hats with long wavy hair or a loose braid. Too cute!

  7. Have always wanted to wear hats like these and never thought I could pull it off! Fun to see that Uncle Karl took the pictures on Maison Michel's site...

  8. I am a total hat gal! I think it highlights a person's eyes so beautifully.

  9. Nope - never been able to pull it off. I love the look and always admire those who can. A baseball cap is all I've been able to manage :)

  14. Hats are the perfect accessory and set an outfit apart. Unfortunately hats just do not suit me!

  15. Love hats, love wearing them. I wear one anytime I know I will be outside for a long time. This spring the Junior League of Miami had a "Hats Off" luncheon which was too fun! Hoorah for hats!

  16. I always feel goofy when wearing a hat, but I agree, with sun on my face daily, I'm in dire need of finding an acceptable one. Let me know if you find one that gives the rest of us that "je ne sais quoi" too!
