As touching sentiments go, you gotta admit that this one is rather sweet. (Pun slightly intended.)
Not sure what the weather was like in your area this past weekend, but it's been pretty warm here in Centraliana. Like, in the 90s warm, and when it gets warm that means pretty much every single bug-type-critter decides they're gonna assert their personalities all over the place. Thus far, I have had run-ins with ants, crane flies, house flies, mosquitos and--in one freaksome encounter--a spider on my bed.
For the record, if you ever want to have a crappy night's sleep, I heartily suggest lying down in bed and discovering a spider chilling out on your pillow, mere inches from your face. But I digress.
Anywho, as you might have guessed by the title of today's post and the amuse-bouche, there have also been bees. Quite a few bees, in fact. Enough bees that I felt compelled to see if I could find enough bee-themed hats to make a post out of them. And as you're about to see, that little exercise worked out really well.
First up is this pseudo-saucer sun hat, complete with a ginormous bee appliqué. Because if you're going to rock a bee on your head, you might as well as go with one roughly about the size of a tennis ball.
Quick question: Have I posted this bronze fililgree bee headband before, or have I just seen it around for a while before getting to post it? Either way, it's stunningly pretty.
Of course, if you're not into actual bees, you could always go with a hat that happens to have a bumblebee color scheme, like this felt-and-lace cocktail hat.
Hey--you create a post about bee hats, it only makes sense to include a knitted beehive hat. Especially since it happens to be really cute.
And just because I like it, here's a big 'ol flower fascinator, replete with veil and a to-scale bee:
Because if you're gonna wear a floral fascinator, you might as well go with one that is all flora, all the time. With a little bit of bee on the side, natch. A veil is nice, too.
See you Wednesday!
