Ever since I can remember, I’ve been a hat girl. And I’m proud to say that my third grade school picture can prove it. I wore a massive Blossom-inspired denim hat with a cranberry colored faux floral smack dab on the front. Hats weren’t allowed in school, so I had to pack it in my backpack and wear it only for the picture.
I. felt. so. cool.
Fast forward a few decades and although my style has changed, my love for hats hasn’t. There were a few years in my twenties that I thought I wasn’t “stylish enough” to “pull off” a hat, but after two kids and my twenties in my past, I pretty much don’t give a crap. I like hats. So I’m going to wear hats. Lots of them, in fact!
Today I’m sharing how three hats can completely change the look of one outfit. I love choosing looks that go from day to night, or are versatile enough to change up during the day, or re-wear later in the week. Sometimes I’m really “feeing” an outfit, so I’ll find myself wanting to wear it multiple times in a week. But to keep the look fresh, I’ll swap out accessories, like a hat for example.
My first look includes this panama wide-brimmed hat that I snagged for a whole $23. The quality is better than one would expect for such an affordable item. The hat is 100% wool and I was excited to bust it out for the fall/winter season. It really dresses up even the most casual outfit, which I love!

My next look is a little more casual with this cozy Pom Pom beanie. The interior of the hat is lined with the softest fleece material and is SUPER comfy. It’s perfect to wear on those chilly days.

My final look for the day is a hat that I wear multiple times a week. It’s a simple black baseball cap for just under $10. I wear black a lot, so I love how this cap goes with the majority of my wardrobe. I can throw it on when I workout, when I’m out running errands, or even to dinner with girlfriends.
