In which I tip my hat to a hat.

This may sound sorta trivial, but I have a really hard time finding hats.
I know there are probably bigger problems in the world, but finding a hat with just the right amount of slouch, in a good color, that isn’t itchy, has become a sort of holy grail quest in my life. Enter the Basque hat:
Pattern: Basque Hat by DROPS Design (which means it’s free!)
Thoughts: How I love this hat. It’s just that it’s so perfectly slouchy, and the color is so fabulously hand-dyed looking and rich, and the yarn is so soft, and the cute little picot hemmed edge? Mad love. You should make this hat. Probably tomorrow. Do it.
In other news, Favorite and I were featured on Green Wedding Shoes yesterday! GWS is my absolute favorite wedding blog (the only one I still read, actually), and as we were planning our wedding, the mantra “Do it for Green Wedding Shoes” was heard often and loudly. Needless to say, actually being featured (they’re notoriously picky) is sort of a dream. Nothing like having an amazing photographer, a hot bridal party, and a super talented mom! Here’s the post if you want to see.
I hope your day is just as full of dreams-come-true!
