JEANS and SHINY THINGS
LADYLIKE in IVORY and LACE
This morning I walked down the street to grab my daily 4-shot latte and saw something truly magical… magnolia blossoms on the trees outside my building!! GAHHHH! Is it really spring?! Is it finally here?! Could it be?! Yayyyy… Ohhhh WAIT. It’s now 10 hours later and snowflakes are falling outside my window. Le sigh! So I guess I’ll have to curb my end-of-winter enthusiasm for a few more days (or weeks) and spend more time indoors than I’d prefer. Buuuuut, that doesn’t mean I can’t start planning some fun warm-weather outfits now does it?! And what perfect timing – the amazing SHOPBOP sale is in full swing for all things transitional season-wear and spring! And the best part of that is, I can shop the sale from the comfort of my couch with a hot cup of cardamom tea and Broad City in the background!

FEDORAS: The universal hat that looks good on pretty much everyone and every head shape! This is my fave, go-to style for day or night, boho chic or effortlessly sleek. I prefer the mid-size and oversized brim fedoras in any neutral color (grey, camel, olive, brown, navy or black), but there are some girls who like the Trilby short-brim style. Trilby hats can look good with a pixie cut and cut-off shorts (jhorts!) on a balmy summer day, but the more versatile season-agnostic hats have mid-sized and oversized brims! I love these in all colors, but if you can only get one, I recommend a nice neutral color that will go with everything, like these beauties below:
LOSING MY HEAD OVER ALL THE HATS I WANT! ($): If you want to try a bunch of different styles, colors and sizes, here are my favorite picks under $60! When I want the same hat in multiple colors, I usually go for one of these Brixton hats linked below (you can also find them at Revolve Clothing, Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom!) or a Topshop pick!
NOT TOO BIG, NOT TOO SMALL… THIS ONE’S JUST THE RIGHT SIZE! ($$): Mid-range prices will keep you on trend but deliver the quality you’re looking for in a hat that will weather through a few seasons or more, like these nicely constructed toppers from Club Monaco and Hat Attack, under $100.
I’LL WEAR YOU FOREVER AND EVER TILL SWEAT DO US PART! ($$$): These are investment pieces that will stand the test of time. If you’re like me and like to wear hats with EVERYTHING till you sweat through the wool on those sweltering summer days and then swear off hats for the rest of the year… but want something you can count on that will never lose its shape or style, it may be worth investing in one of these > $100 beauties by it-girl favorites Janessa Leone or Eugenia Kim!
Check back this weekend for more styles like Panama Hats and Beanies, which are great for this transitional season as well!
