There is something about New Orleans that begs for a great hat, some lace, and flirty feminine silhouettes... especially in this area of town. I can walk around this neighborhood for days and never get sick of the beautiful houses and well kept flower beds and gardens. I'm down here visiting the really, really special person that I met when I came down last and he took these pictures (thus the googly smiles). I may never leave.
I also fell in love with this hat while trying to track down another hat that I didn't buy last time at the same place... no luck on that (Do I really need another furry russian hat? YES.) Fortunately, I found this one and it just has the most perfect attitude: a pop of the most perfect shade of red and a brim that's not too floppy. I'm on the hunt for more!
