Hola! Hope you’re week is off to a good start!  I know I’m already ready for the weekend but in the meantime, I thought I’d share some of my favorite hats with you because ya’ll know I love hats! These are all great brands and I’m super excited for one, in particular, to be added to my collection! I’d be wearing it now, but it’s been on backorder for 2 months!  So let’s get into it, shall we?

Ok first off straw is everything right now!  I’m talking bags, shoes, hats, ALL THE THINGS!  There are several styles out there but one brand, in particular, that has been killing it. Lack of Color has my heartstrings with all of their straw hats.  You can check out one that i keep pulling out to wear this summer here.

All the hats

The rest of the hats I’ve mentioned below are felt/wool. I’ve been holding on dearly and trying to take care of all of my wool hats over the past few years and will even wear them in the dead middle of the summer but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make for them!  Let’s just say I’m that dedicated, haha! There are a few different brands that I like to go with.  Lack of Color, Brixton, and Gigi Pip.  All of these have upheld my standards on what makes a good hat.  They hold their shape even when I’m a little rough on them and they actually fit my tiny head.  In case you’re wondering what size I usually take it’s a small or sometimes an xsmall if they have it.  

One thing you need to know about sizing with these brands is that the majority are unisex sized so you may need to size down.  Also, some wools are not meant to be lint rolled, but rather brushed with a hat brush made with horsehair bristles and be sure to use lighter colored bristles for hats with lighter shades and darker toned bristles for hats with darker shades.  This is important because you may risk transferring the color from the bristles onto the hat.  Just check with your retailer for the recommended care instructions.  

I’ve listed all of the hats I’m currently coveting below as well as shoppable links for your convenience.

wide brim hats, straw hats, wool/felt hats




Hat’s off to you for reading this!  Are you currently coveting any of these hats?  Please feel free to comment below!  Also, in case you were wondering which hat I’m waiting on it’s #3 and I can’t wait for it to come in!

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

    Hats are fun to wear, especially when you get to mix and match them with your outfits. I love numbers 7,8, and 10!

  7. I definitely share your love for hats. I get this fetish from my late Grandmother, who owned about 50 hats! Lately though, I had been sporting the straw hat fedora. It’s perfect for this warm weather. Thanks for sharing your selections! I do like a few of them and might even consider purchasing!

    Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, awesome blog!
