This week’s style challenge is all about summer hats. I’m one of those people that really likes hats, but almost never wears them. I have a bunch of fun vintage fascinators that sit around my house on display and collect dust, but for some reason I never think to incorporate them in my outfits. Needless to say, I was glad for this week’s style challenge. I’ve had this hat for years and I actually bought it to use in my senior fashion show in college (dating myself…ugh). It was a silly looking vintage hat with a giant flipped up brim when I got it, but I did a little reconstruction and turned it into the lovely little number you see here.

We have a whole slew of other gals participating in this week’s style challenge, so be sure and check out Meghan, Adiel, AmandaKellen, Nicole, Carlina, Kate, Jade, and Angie to see how they styled their summer hats! If you have a summer hat look you wanna share, find me on twitter here and include #stylechallenge in your tweet!

    Hi Rebecca!

    I’m so happy to link up with you ladies for this style challenge! What a pretty dress! I love that you worked a boater style hat which can be hard to pull off but it looks great on you! Your accessories are cute and I’m especially fond of your belt.

    P.S I added you on Bloglovin, Twitter and Pinterest. I on those as well as Facebook. I can’t wait to explore your blog more!)

    Love the hat! I’m glad it managed to be incorporated into you outfit 🙂


  15. Jade says: June 22, 2012 • 17:06:05

    LOVE the dress, especially the colour. Looks great with your hat.



  16. Eli says: June 22, 2012 • 19:55:25

    I agree, I have lots of hats but rarely find the opportunity to wear them. And when I do have the chance, I feel funny in it! I guess you just have to go for it.

    I think your dress and hat work perfectly together 🙂

    Hi Rebecca, I saw your featured look on NY Times and found your blog through some internet searching… so glad I did! I absolutely love your style, I’ve repinned a ton of your outfits :)) I really love your colour combos and slight vintage look – this dress is just gorgeous, such a pretty colour and the pleats are lovely.

    Sorry for the gushing, I just really enjoy finding a new blog that I really love!! If you wanted to pop over to mine sometime I’d love to see you (in my latest post I’m wearing a summer hat!), but no worries if not :)))

    Catherine x
