I showed you some of my inspiration for hat purchases I’m considering this season in my last post. For now, I share with you a bit of my hat obsession. Some serious. Some playful. Some practical. Some fashionable. Always stylish and appropriate!

Dates range from 2006-present, in no particular order.

Will share many more, eventually. These are pics I had quick access to, so no special or planned photography!

What’s your fave?
