THE GOOD BUY/GOOD-BYE BOOK: SUMMER HATS

 

Welcome to The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book!

Welcome!

This is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book!

Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this serie after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!

You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!

So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Summer Hats!

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the EdgeThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: summer hatsI do love a pretty fascinator with a veil for dress up occasions!  They make me feel like I am attending a royal event.  I was gifted this pretty black lacy one from Zaful a few years back and I still wear it where it when I am feeling fancy and wanting a vintage vibe.  Definitely a Good Buy…even though I didn’t really buy it!

The darling Hilda of Over the HildaThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Summer hatsThis straw hat is a good buy from Marc Cain. It fits me, it is soft and easy to wear and it is gorgeous. Cost was €99 but I bought it at €60. We have been having an incredible summer and I have needed my hats to protect my face from the sun.

The lovely Lieske of Petite TeacherThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Summer hatsThis huge black summer hat is a good buy, though I had my doubts before buying it. The plusses first. It’s a very versatile hat that goes well with many outfits and that’s something I value a lot. Versatility is not only good for my creativity and budget, but also good for the environment. Because the hat is so huge, it’s an excellent way to keep my face out of the sun in summer, which is a real bonus this year! The fact that the hat is so huge is actually also a minus and the main reason for hesitating before buying… I sometimes feel the hat is too big for my small frame. Anyway, having had the hat for 2 seasons now and happily wearing it regularly, I definitely consider it a good buy!

The darling Sonja of Yust So MeThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Summer hats

This is totally me and of course people look when you wear a hat, because in my town it is a bit awkward…they are farmers and not used to see a fashionista walking down the street.

The lovely Liz of Closet Play ImageThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Summer hatsHer (funny) hat story is on Shelbee’s!

Our lovely Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of StyleThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Summer hatsThis photo is me with my straw hat that is a good buy!! I absolutely think it’s an essential for summer outdoor activities. I added the third photo of the same hat for me, to show how I glued on some pom poms around the brim!! It’s an easy DIY to a plain straw hat!!

The charming Kellyann of This Blonde’s Shopping BagThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: summer hatsHi ladies,

I don’t have much in the way of summer hats but here’s one! I think your series is such a great idea, love to support it!

The lovely Cheryl of North West Mountain LivingThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: summer hatsI spend a lot of time outdoors here in the mountains so hats are functional as well as fun. I wear them often with my favorite being wide brim so they really shade my face.

The darling Betsy of Natty GalThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: summer hatsI was NEVER a hat person until (during a mini mid-life crisis) hubby purchased a convertible.  With baby fine hair that does not do wind, my options became ponytail or hat.  Now I really like them for the bit of extra flare they give an outfit.

And my ,,summer hat,,The good buy/good-bye book: summer hatsI havn’t got any summer hat, the one on Shelbee’s blog I bought for this theme! This is what I always wear when I am sitting in the garden, and in the pool!

Now hop over to Shelbee’s to see more Summer Hats!

That’s it for this month! Thank you all for participating. Shelbee and I love to host these series, but without you all, there is no serie!

The theme for next month is Kimono’s!

    Great Post!!! Hats can be hard! They are super personal and not every hat fits everyone face, style, size. Love that you showed many hats on different people.

    Hey Nancy. It was my first time ever to participate in some kind of request/challenge/project of a fellow blogger and I feel so proud to be featured this way, among so many other fantastic bloggers and women. Thanks for encouraging me and thanks for the lovely alliteration you have made with my name. I love the sound of “lovely Lieske”. Your theme was just perfect for the super summer we are having in Europe this year and there is lots of inspiration to be found in this blogpost. Love, Lieske

    All the gals wear their hats with such confidence. I need to follow suit. I feel timid about wearing my straw hat poolside in my own backyard! Today we walked for an hour in the sun up and down a canyon road and I commented that I wish I had worn a cap. Going to make this happen.

    Thank you for the inspiration!!

    Nancy, this was definitely a super fun theme! I do love my hats. And I can’t believe that you went and bought a hat just for this! You look adorable in it, by the way! And I do love the scarf on the head look, too. Super edgy and so summery. Now onto my favorite thing ever…KIMONOS! I have no idea which ones I will choose to feature!

    So much great summer hat inspiration! 🙂

    I should definitely do the kimono one – kimonos are a summer staple for me and I have far too many, haha! Can you really have too many though?!

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend! It was so cold here, winter has really hit!
