Hat Day

Today is National Hat Day.

As much as I love hats, I’m one of those people who look even dorkier when I put one on my head. It’s sad, but true!

So even though I can’t wear them, it doesn’t keep me from admiring them.

In honor of the day, I thought I’d share some of my favorite  hats.

Let’s start with Mary Poppins. I have adored her white hat since the early days of my girlhood.  Light, breezy, feminine and lovely, I so wanted this hat (and dress, and to be Mary Poppins). Bert’s hat is snazzy, too, in its own colorful way.

Vivian Leigh could wear hats. As Scarlett O’Hara she wore them with a lot of attitude. My favorite is the big straw hat with the deep green velvet bow. Oh, how I longed to be Scarlett in her beautiful clothes, surrounded by adoring boys.

The moment I saw this hat, I loved it. The style, the elegance – the incredibly broad brim that said “make way, I’m someone special!” Although I did not want to be Rose on the Titanic, I did pine for her wardrobe, particularly this outfit.

Jane Russell is another one who wore hats with panache.

Lest you think I’ve forgotten an important category of hats, I must confess, I love all cowboy hats.
