Lydia from Chic on the Cheap mentioned in a post last week she has an adjustment period for new things. I would have to agree. It took me a while to like neon, even longer to consider joggers, and for years I couldn't fully embrace hats. At ball games? Sure! For warmth in winter? Duh. But otherwise? I admired them, but I just wasn't sure how I could incorporate them into my style. I have most definitely changed my mind. 
Hats literally frame your face. Of any accessory you wear, there is no way anyone could miss a hat. I have been slowly growing my hat collection with a fedora, baseball cap, floppy hat, and now two wool hats from Grace Hats. I just love their modern and unique take on vintages styles like the one I am wearing. I love the details on each hat they make!

I was given parts of this outfit in exchange for inclusion in this post. 


  1. I feel the exact same way Laura! My joggers have been hanging in my closet for nearly a year now! I need to stop letting items hang in my closet and try new trends!! Thanks for the encouragement! I love you in hats!! So pretty!! And chambray with black is one of my favorite combos!! Susan

  2. That hat looks great on you! :)

    I'm slowly warming up to hats a little - they are just too perfect for being out in the sun with baby T! And I want to teach him good sun protection habits, I should lead by example!

  3. I am loving this layered look! The hat and scarf are such pretty accessories!

  4. I think this is my favorite look you've worn! Chambray is perfect and I love how you've layered it. This is a look I reach for all the time except for the hat and that's why I love it so much! It looks great on you!

  5. I love the color of your hat! It looks great on you! Such a cute, layered look!

  6. I used to wear and own lots of hats. But between 2009 and 2013 I pretty much stopped, IDK why. I got rid of a lot of them. Too bad. I am starting to grow my collection also. That hat is the cutest, totally frames your face and this outfit is ultra-adorable.

    I showed 2 outfits with hats last week and plan on posting another one with a new hat this week. =)

  7. I really do love that hat and scarf. That scarf looks so comfy!


  8. What a fun look! Love the boots - they are fabulous!

  9. I am LOVING those boots, babe!


  10. Well they look great on you, so keep it up!

  11. You look stunning in a hat! I never did get a fedora, but I bet I would love it. Great over-the-knee boots too! Gorgeous as always, my dear!

  12. I've been feeling the same way with hats--like I can't carry it off--, but you look great in it! Love the purple color.

    Loving all the hints of purple in this outfit. That hat and scarf are fab! And those boots, too!!!

  14. I feel the same way about hats. I've been slowly warming up to them over the years. I think you look great in hats. It definitely elevates the whole look. And those boots! They make your legs look a mile long. ~Cynthia

  15. It's lovely on you. I love a good hat - but have a hard time finding the right shape for my face - but hey - it's worth a go, you never know what might come of it! Love the scarf in this outfit too!

  16. Laura you look amazing. I love this outfit! Those boots are fabulous, and you look so great in a hat. I'm glad you have adopted them. :) I love them too but still feel a little strange wearing them in public.

  21. ooooh, the colors here are perfect! I really love that shirt under the chambray with those BOOTS (I just feel like may everything look instantly chic)

    Fantastic boots Laura!


  25. I agree with the whole adjustment period thing. I want a hat like that so badly but haven't found the perfect one yet. I love yours with the chambray and cute scarf!

  26. You really do look so gorgeous in hats - I'm glad you embraced them! I totally have an adjustment period for most new trends. It took me forever to get on board with skinny jeans and now they are all I wear! Anyway, I love the whole outfit - the scarf is really cute too!

  27. I love your OTK boots and that hat is so adorable on you!

  28. Looking so very chic with this adorable hat, scarf and tall boots! Thanks for hosting this link up, Laura! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com/
