I was cleaning out closet and saw some of my summer hats, three which I’ve not worn for ages, just gathering dust on the top shelf. I got them down and decided I’d wear one to church tomorrow if it’s not raining! Everyone, especially fair skinned red heads like me, need to keep out of the sun’s harmful rays! So why not wear these hats this summer. I have yellow and turquoise colored ones just like the brown one below….plus a lot of others resting safely in some rather ancient round cardboard hatboxes! Those boxes are as old a my children who qualify for AARP membership. I’ve always loved hats….especially big brim picture hats. My Grandma Bessie’s used to let me try on all her hats when she was redecorating them with colorful silk flowers she’d purchased to get them ready and looking like new for the for the spring and summer….she would have made a good milliner. Below are some of the favorite big brim hats I’ve worn.
