The Hat

If a woman rebels against high-heeled shoes, she should take care to do it
in a very smart hat.

The weather has been so hot and humid here in Pennsylvania, that I simply cannot go out without a silly oversized hat to keep myself shaded. It's pretty brutal. Forget dresses and heels on the weekend... it's all about shorts or rompers when I am not in the office. How are you darlings surviving the summer heat? Have you melted yet?

Other than that, my week has been quite a blur. My hubby is far off in the land of Oklahoma helping his brother move for his new job. It's always a drag to be away from him, but I am taking it in stride. It will make it that much more sweet when I pick him up from the airport on Sunday afternoon. Until then, looks like my weekend will be filled with plenty of thrifting, headband making, and maybe even furniture repurposing for the new house. I'm also thinking about diving into the old series' Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes to pass some time along. Any suggestions?

Have yourself a splendiful Thursday!
Love,

    I haven't seen Life on Mars or Ashes to Ashes but I just got hooked on True Blood and Modern Family. They are both pretty good!

  32. That quote is funny! It's definitely true ;) You look like you have soo much fun in your photos. Loving your shoes & hat :)

    I know this sounds weird, but you don't look uncomfortable at all from the heat. We just had a heatwave over here in Northern California and it was hard to not let that show in my pics. It made me look all shiny lol. For such hot weather I try to wear dresses and skirts when I'm indoors. Otherwise, I embrace the heat by swimming.

  34. I wish I could pull off hats like this. I guess I don't have a hat head/face. You, obviously, have a perfect hat head because this hat looks amazing on you.
    And I'm jealous.
