Layers & Lipstick Linkup - Poofy Pony Tails & Hats

Before I talk about today's linkup topic I just want to say THANK YOU for all your sweet comments about " Cirque du Fonce" yesterday through comments, texts, and social media. Did you know we got the shoot published by Lemonade and Lenses? Make sure you check it out ;)
Back to the blogpost.....
With fall being upon us, no chic outfit is complete without a stylish fall hat. Autumn is my favorite time of the year to dress because of all the scarves, hats, and ponchos that gives an outfit that extra "wow" factor. While I don't discriminate on headwear accessories I would have to say that the floppy hat is my favorite hat for fall. By adding a floppy hat to an outfit you immediately elevate your style without looking like you are "trying" to hard.
One thing you need to know about floppy hats is making sure that it doesn't wear you. Since I have a smaller face and body I look for floppy hats that have a smaller brim so that my face isn't completely hidden by the hat. Just like a flowy blouse I need to fit the right "fit" so my body doesn't get lost. I also look for floppy hats where the brim doesn't fall flat to both sides of my ears, and then sticks out the front and back of my head (hope that makes sense).
Another great thing about hats is that whether you are having a bad hair day or don't have time to style it, just throw a hat on to look immediately chic. For those of you who know me I am all about washing my hair once a week, and hats are definitely my life savers on days where I have meetings between washes.
