I've been looking for a gardening hat for a while now and have had no luck. I couldn't find one that would fit my three specifications: 1) semi cute, 2) affordable and 3) would fit my giant head. Every time I found one that I thought might work, as soon as I tried it on I knew it was a failure. I have a big head and all the hats I tried would sit on top and just look stupid.
A couple weeks back, I was shopping for bridesmaids dresses with a friend and we were at Le Chateau, trying on some options. Right beside the dressing room there was a hat stand with a whole whack of stylish hats. Just for the fun of it, I grabbed one and plopped it on my head. I was sold. It looked so cute, was only $20 and it fit!
I couldn't believe that I just happened upon the perfect hat like that. I didn't expect to look this cute while out working in my garden!
And no, those are not my gardening clothes. I was on my way out the door to work when I snapped these pictures. Please also ignore the mess of a kitchen in the background, it's been a busy week.
Isn't it just fabulous? I'm totally in love and can't wait to put it to good use. I wonder if I can find other events where big hats are needed, other than gardening...
