So, y'all might have noticed that I've decided to jump onto the big hat wagon.  I decided it was time.  There are so many cute styles out there -- and coming from Nashville, please know I'm not talking about cowboy hats... the only place you'll find anyone in a cowboy hat in Nashville is on set of ABC's  show Nashville or on a tourist downtown waiting in line for open mic night at tootsies.  However, you will see a good bit of wide-brim hats, felt hats, bowlers, panama hats, there are a good bit of hat inspiration.

I wore hat yesterday when the gorgeous Nat came to visit and we had morning jo together at Barista Parlor.  It was raining (hence picture number two -- that would be me dancing in the rain) and I said out loud "hey, hats are functional!" has my hair was shielded from the rain (duh).  Anywhoo, I then kinda had a flashback to Charles Ingles on Little House on the Prairie in his brown hat & then when I got home I got all hat nerdy and googled the history of hats (y'all -- i'm weird).  So some random bits of the history of hats for you...did you know that there's a depiction of a hat in the Thebes Tomb that dates back to 3200 bc., or there's a type called a Pork Pie hat, OR did you know that there is a patron saint of hat makers?  I mean.  Hats are a big deal y'all, so put one on your head!  Don't ask if "it goes" with your outfit or if you "can pull it off."  Just go with it!
