National Hat Day

Since today is National Hat Day, I thought it might be fun to post a few photos of hats that some of my characters might have worn.

While a large portion of my contemporary characters wear cowboy hats, the women in my historical romances bring a colorful array of headgear to the table.

In the Hardman Holidays series, the Granger women wear an assortment of hats.

The Pendleton Petticoat series also features women wearing hats.

Aundy, the heroine in Aundy, has many beautiful clothes and hats. Her grandmother was a milliner, her aunt owns an exclusive boutique in Chicago and her sister is one of the most talented seamstresses of her time.
