“They say I’m a little bit country, well they’re right on the money….”
I swear I should live on a farm somewhere outside of Nashville surrounded with lots of dogs and a few goats. Then I could wear all the big hats, boots and jeans I want while sipping sweet tea and eating southern biscuits on my expansive front porch. Ahhhh… the good life (or so I think).
The funny thing is, next week I’ll be all about being the surfer/beachy girl and forget about those dreams for a fast minute until I’m onto the next thing. I guess that’s the beauty of dreaming, it doesn’t hurt to dream big and fast. For now I’ll keep pretending to change my surroundings simply by a visit to my closet and the mood I’m currently feeling… which is clearly a bit country.
Let’s talk about the love I have for this hat and the story behind it. As a quote on quote, “hat girl,” I’m always keeping my eye out for new ones to add to my collection. It’s constantly my go-to accessory and since you can find them relatively inexpensive (although you can certainly drop some dollars if you want to!) it’s a great way to make an outfit go from so-so to memorable.
I actually found this beauty while browsing the Ventura flea market last month. These adorable gals from Freehand Boutique had a tent set up with tons of super stylish items. The best kept secret about this hat is that it’s adjustable. Yep, that’s a new one even for me! So beyond the cool shape, size, and feathers… it can adjust to fit more heads than one. Pretty smart if you ask me.
Since I seem to love anything boho/western it’s no surprise I fell in love with this Stella & Dot aztec coral expandable tote bag. Besides the amazingly awesome pattern, it’s incredibly roomy and has a wipeable interior fabric with sizable pockets. The extra fringe tassel was just a bonus!
