Pompoms and a Straw Hat

Pompoms have taken over the world of accessories this season! They are attached to the end of sleeves, clipped on to purses, dangling from necklaces and earrings, and they are adorning hats like this one from Brooklyn Hat Company. Pompoms and a straw hat – what a combo.

But as much as I love them and think they are adorable, I always forget to pull them off the top shelf of my closet to wear during the summer months. It’s such an obvious accessory when the sun of shining, but it’s not something I remember.

To make it easier to grab hats like this one, I’ve moved my hats from the top back corner of my closet and put them on ‘display’ hanging from nails on my wall in place of art. That way I see them everyday AND it’s easy to grab when I’m running out the door. It also has the added bonus of making this item usable instead of forgettable. And with my personal rule of removing things from my closet that haven’t been used in the last 12 months – this new hat display means this hat will be in my collection beyond this summer.

A simple little black dress, like this one, or denim shorts and a t-shirt – it all works. I’m looking forward to discovering all the places I can wear this and all the outfits it will go with. If you want one of your own, Brooklyn Hat Company hats are sold at a number of retailers including Fred Segal, Kitson, Free People, Rue La La, Urban Outfitters, Head Change and The Hat Shop. Or you can snag this one online at SwimSpot.
