I need a reason to wear this hat!

This gorgeous inspiration board is from Snippet and Ink. See the white hat on the right side??? I'm slightly obsessed. I have a two garden weddings this summer along with a backyard wedding, but I'm not sure I could pull it off as Americans, in general, just aren't hat people. This one is slightly over the top as well, so if no one else is in a hat, it might be too much. Europafox, can I come to a wedding on the other side of the pond with you? I'd be happy to buy this hat for the occasion!

Anyone have any other (perhaps slightly smaller) works of millinery that I can peruse while I'm dreaming? Also, is anyone out there planning a yellow and white wedding? We debated on navy and yellow for awhile, and I still think it would have been just gorgeous!


  1. I love the European hat tradition. I wish I could wear them well (white gloves, too). Maybe this is an excuse for you to go to the Kentucky Derby this year...or host a garden party of your own.

  2. I don't know where in Chicago you live, but there is a great hat shop in Skokie - I bought a hat to wear to my cousin's wedding a few years ago. I decided I wanted to wear a hat and I didn't care that it's not the American thing to do!
