baseball hats...not just for bad hair days

A little detour from design and diy to chat about one of my favorite accessories...
baseball hats.
 Of course, I wear them on bad hair days, and they're perfect when I'm trying to stretch
 my highlights out for an extra week day or so.
But, aside from those days I love the carefree, casual look with a bit of flair.
I have a collection, someday when my closet is clean I'll show you!

Here are some looks I'd go for...

Last week I wore my NY hat like this one and someone asked if I was a fan,
 I kind of smiled, but I was thinking,
 'No, it just looks cute with my yellow and white striped t-shirt and jeans!'

I have a blue and yellow floral that's cute with with denim and stripes.

I have a black and tan one that I wore today with a black t-shirt, jeans and leopard belt,
 which inspired this post. :)

I am guessing you can pull it of Pam but I am not a fan. always think people are being lazy when they wear one!! sorry!

Luci @Bungalow At Home said...

I like the way it looks and the photos you chose are perfect examples on how it can make an outfit.. but most people wear them when they don't want to do their hair and maybe are being lazy...

My equivalent of lazy is wearing my hair in a slicked back bun:) And I agree with Elaine, I'm sure you are one of those that can pull it off

Truth is I never wear one. Why? Because my head is huge. I'm not kidding! My son inherited that from me. The doctor said it's a German thing LOL, My dad has one too.
It looks cute on other people though.

If I looked as cute as these young things ... why YES! But for me ... I don't think they work quite so well!! xo

Yes, I wear them on windy days when I am outside watching my kids' baseball games and I always wear them to the beach. I just bought the cutest monogrammed one from a store on etsy. I will go check the name of the store and get back to you!

Ok, the etsy store I bought mine from was Mad About Monograms. I bought the hot pink hat with white interlocking initials. Love it!

You looked adorable in your hat yesterday. If I could pull it off, I would wear them too. I'm with Julia, although there are no German genes. I'm claiming it houses a big brain!

The pictures are very chic! On me!!! I have very short hair.....hats, especially baseball hats make me look all ears and bald!

Leslie said...

Hi Pam! Well.. you know how I feel about hats:) Love them, and NOT just on bad hair days. Lots of cute styles here! xxleslie

Gypsy Heart said...

I love the look! I love that they're easy, fun, funky and hide the hair mistakes...however, I cannot wear them. :( Honestly, there's something weird about my face/head and they look awful on me.

Enjoy them for me!

I love them on everyone else, but they don't work on me...I look like a dork!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Love them with hair up or down, so cute, and I love how they are trending with cute casual outfits and not just for working out. But Yankees??????????????? You need to send me your address as soon as possible so I can amend that situation!

Vel Criste said...

I love cloches more than baseball hats, but for a baseball mom like me, it is a must for practice and game days! Advance Happy mother's day Pam!!!!!

Peggy said...

A die hard YANKEE's fan here!! :-D I love baseball caps but have to admit you have to sport a certain look already to truly be able to pull it off. One thing is you have to have longer hair (all the thin, young gals in pictures definitely fit that category...) and honestly, the correct build. No, I'm not talking facial either. You my dear, have the build and youthful appearance to carry it off! Have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy your mother's day!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

I steal the hubby's hat every once in a while! ;)

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

I have a stash but I usually just wear one when my hair is beyond needing a wash and I'm out of time! Sounds like you have some cute combos!

pendy said...

Can't do it; they look ridiculous with short hair.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

I do not wear baseball hats much as I think I really do not look good in them...you know that "round face" thing...but I do love visors...I wear my visors alot when attending my hubby's tournaments and when I am driving my car with the top down!...I think baseball caps look so cute on he right people..and you are the right person to sport them!!..

I forget to wear baseball hats and I like them! Good reminder, I do not keep them in sight so tend to forget about them as an option. So good for sun protection too.
