Candy Stripes


Pink wool hat: HERE| Top: Old, similar HERE 
Skirt: c/o HERE + save $5 off your order with code JOI5OFF

According to a recent inventory check into my wardrobe, I may or may not have enough hats to wear a different one every day for at least 4 months…😖 👀 😶
If you’re a hat lover/hoarder like me, you may find that you have to create opportunities to be certain that you wear each piece in your collection. For instance, I bought this pink boater last year (never fear, it’s still available for sale HERE) but instead of wearing it promptly, I ended up putting it on display in my powder room. This shade of pink closely matches the color that I painted my powder room. Time flew by and now here we are almost in May…
Recently I set about reconciling my hat inventory (including purging where necessary) and realized that I hadn't wore this beauty yet! Sure it looks pretty cute mounted in my powder room, but how much fun is that?! LOL! I had an idea to pair soft pink with red this season, without a doubt a result of my relentless Pinterest excursions.  
I rummaged through my closet and re-discovered this choker tank top acquired last summer. Wouldn’t you know that both the hat and tank felt like a perfect fit for this knockout candy stripe maxi skirt?! Seriously though, when I tried it all on I felt like the wait had been well worth it! 
This maxi stunner stands out in a crowd- and paired with pastel pink it hits the ball out of the park!

Until next time,

  2. I just love your style! That hat! Boater hats are my favorite style but I too love hats and use them as decor! They are even hanging on my table lamp right now. I have to have that skirt. You look so fabulous and I love your blog. Peace! Cheryl Tucker

  9. Amazing outfit, so striking. I keep a few summer hats in my powder room, just because it's close to the garden where they're needed. Maybe I should start using them for styling too, great idea!

  16. Your skirt is amazing! I love your hat - it's just perfect for that top. I've recently started a little hat collection - my husband already thinks I have enough but I beg to differ! I think I need a pink one now ;-)
