Put a Hat on It!

It seems lately that many outfits are incomplete without some kind of head wear. Maybe it’s just the blustery weather we’ve been having this week, but millinery is on our minds! Hat shops have even been cropping up in several locations in Nashville with HatWrks on 8th Ave South, Otis James over in Marathon Village, and of course Goorin Bros in downtown. We have an especially fun selection of fun and cozy hats right now that are perfect for shielding those ears from the wind and chill (and for added chic, of course!). Check out the outfits we put together to go with a few of our favorite toppers:

Green Cardigan- Coldwater Creek sz M $28
