Loving Hats Right Now

Braided Fedora

I’ve always shied away from hats. Something about having a melon the size of Orbit (Astros fans will get my reference) made hats one accessory this girl just didn’t do. They always made me feel goofy. But Oh, how things have changed!!!! Here are just a few reasons I’m loving hats right now…

Hats can be your best friend on a bad hair, I don’t want to wear makeup day. Hats shield your gorgeous gams from the harmful rays of the sun. Hats instantly make any outfit look much more stylish. Below are some of my faves to take you from sun protection to sassy style in no time!!

Bonnie & Clyde Style Swag

I’m falling for fedoras, especially this navy wool asymmetrical style I found in a great hat shop in Soho. The slight swag of the hat is so Bonnie & Clyde prohibition gangster. It also really fits one of my personal style secrets… Sometimes showing less is more. The hat gives a bit of mystery. Not to mention you can be ready in a flash, dirty hair and all!!

FashionBillie Bit:  High-waisted bell-bottoms have my heart and it just so happens they are on point with 2015 trends. The high waist conceals any of those trouble areas, while the cut of bell bottom or (flare) works at lengthening those legs! What’s not to love?

Fashion in a Flash: Easy Like Sunday Morning


 

Sometimes the easiest way to be fashionable is to play off the vibe you are feeling that very day.  Some days you may feel like dressing to the nines, and others not a dab of makeup.  So this weekend when I caught myself humming “Easy, easy like Sunday morning”, I threw on a pair of jeans, tank, hat and wedges.

 

I love Rachel Ray’s :30 min meals, so consider this my ode to her with a :30 min outfit!  By taking a pair of skinny jeans out of the closet and rolling the bottoms I created a new pair of Capri pants and paired it with a high low tunic. I’m really loving the high low tunic look of many shirts right now but a plain tee always works as well. To polish off the look, I added a thicker belt to play up the menswear vibe of my fedora and an amazing pair of STYLE STEAL wedges.

What is your favorite “Easy like Sunday Morning” outfit?
