Normally, when I choose my outfit, I start with the clothes rather than the accessories and style my look around them as the centerpiece, but when I found this hat, I had to make whatever clothes I had work with it.
I fell in love with this hat from the For Love & Lemons x Gladys Tamez Millinery specialty line debuting this spring. This is the “La Noche” hat and the inspiration is Spain, and it shows, with the lace detailing giving off a perfectly romantic vibe without overdoing it); [similar style (for a much higher price point) on Gladys Tamez’ site, a white version on Neiman Marcus, or affordable versions by Ale by Alessandra here and by Brixton here on Revolve].
Lucky for me, this showstopping “La Cucaracha” print by The Jetset Diaries (dress is sold out, but skirt available here; similar dress styles also available by same designer here and here, or by Misa Los Angeles).
In fact – the print was so gorgeous… I took a quick pit stop to take a photo with this adorable house, aptly named “Lilacs & Laughter” as the perfect backdrop for the dress sans hat. It wasn’t long before I put it back on though…
Happy hat-hunting for spring…!
