1. So...yeah...I have a hat on in these pictures, and yes, I really wore it around. I got it a few years ago for a "Hats & Heels" fundraising event and then wore it a month later for a "Hats & Heels" themed bridal shower. What can I say? Southern women love their hats (it's a quality about Southern women that I love..."Bless their hearts" <only chicks South of the Mason-Dixon line will get that>). This thing has sat on the top shelf of the closet in my guest room since August of 2010, but everytime I go to donate it...I just can't bring myself to do it. It's one of those items that makes me think..."What if I want to wear it again? What if I need to wear it again? Well, I did it. I wore it again. It's practical...it keeps the sun out of my eyes, covers up a bad hair day (or a forehead zit), and it's fun. When you put a hat on like this, you can't help but be in a good mood. You have a floppy brim in your face and a huge flower on your head. It is impossible to take yourself too seriously with all of that going on. So, if you ever get the chance, buy and wear a floppy hat for the hell of it. You won't regret it. Well...you might, but hey, it probably won't be the most embarrassing thing you have ever done.
