Inspiration: Hats and Hair Accessories

Since we are right in the middle of summer, I find that the heat doesn't allow me to accessorize as much as I would like.  When the heat is beating down on you the last thing I want to be doing is layering.  That's why I love hats and all kinds of hair accessories.  It's a great way to add intrigue to your outfit without feeling stifled (am I the only one that feels like that sometimes?).  Here are my favorite examples of great accessories I've seen so far :)


Not only am I obsessed with Marlen's new short hair, I love how she continues to accessorize with this cute hat.  I feel like she can do so much with short hair and it really suits her like a dream.

Hannah of The Braided Bandit

How perfect is Hannah's 4th of July outfit?  I think the headscarf was the perfect addition to her vintage summer frock.

Ruth of Oragami Girl

A big congratulations to Ruth because she just got married!  I think this delicate flower headband was a great touch to her beautiful wedding dress.

Jamie of Petite Panoply

I think I really love headscarves because I'm instantly attracted to any outfit that incorporates one.  Jamie sports a super cute summer look with her headscarf and red sunglasses.

Sammi of The Soubrette Brunette

I know those huge flower crowns are all the rage this summer, but I really like Sammi's smaller flower crown.  I think it's more practical for everyday wear and looks so gorgeous on her!

What kind of hair accessories do you like to wear?  I'm definitely a headband kind of girl but I wish I had a bigger collection of hats.  I feel like they would be quite beneficial on those bad hair days!  Hope you're having a great week!




  1. My mom made me wear a bonnet until I was probably 8. Sometimes I wish I could just wear my bonnet again. But as an alternative to that, I throw on a wide headband. All of these ladies look great in their head gear!

  4. Agreed. I like the smaller floral crowns better (for me to wear, I mean. I like both small and big floral crowns on other girls. They all look like Midsummer Night Dreams in them).

    Also reminding me to start wearing my hats and other hair accessories more. Such a great alternative to layering indeed!

  17. I wear my fedora pretty often and I live in bandannas. I also love headscarves but I don't own any. I am attracted to any pretty outfit involving a headscarf though :)

  18. Aww you included me! Thanks Ashley! I love hats so much but I forget to wear the ones I have. That really needs to be remedied soon. I just picked up a couple new scarves I'm sure will be worn on my head soon too.
