While I'm no great fan of the water, it's prints like this one that make me
miss living near a beach. Because sparkly water is just so flippin' pretty.
You know what I haven't done lately? Written a post comprised of hats of one particular color, that's what. So seeing as it's still summery outside and therefore bright colors are still what's hot in the streets, I was thinking that we'd take a look at the color of my birthstone: turquoise.
Yep. Because if anything just screams "December," it's a color that only gets play between the months of June and August, but I digress. On to the hats!
First up is this charming multicolored crocheted tam, which I just adore. I'm guessing it has to do with the 1980s color scheme mixed with the 1970s vibe the tam itself is giving off. It's a mish-mash of old-schools and it works.
Interesting side note: I don't get to write/say the word "curlicue" very often. But now that I've posted this floral fascinator, I can safely say that I have managed to achieve that goal for this week. Score!
Of course, now I'm not sure how I'm going to pull that off next week, but that's next week. I'll deal with it when it gets here.
Well, if we're going with a summery color as our theme for today, I might as well post a summery straw hat featuring the aforementioned color, shouldn't I?
Although it appears that turquoise also works pretty well as an autumn color if you go dark enough with it, as this gold-and-turquoise pillbox hat amply proves.
And now, just because I can't believe this the first one I've ever found, behold:
Yes, Internets, that is a real, honest-to-goodness chameleon hat. Granted, it's for newborns and is listed as a photography prop, but whatever--it's still highly rad and I love it and WHY AREN'T THEY AVAILABLE IN ADULT SIZES?
*sigh* It's times like these that I detest being a grownup.
And on that note, see you next week!
