Hats On

When it comes down to it, there are 3 reasons I am a hat person. Here goes:

ISABEL MARANT Haley Tie Dye Cotton Bucket Hat
  1. Sun protection in the summer. We only have one chance with the skin we’re in, so I think it’s best to always treat it right. You’ll rarely see me on a super sunny day or at the beach without a hat.
  2. They are the ultimate bad hair day cover-up. Copious amount of COVID roots or greys? Throw a hat on. Crispy surf hair? Throw a hat on. Rocking a questionable air-dried look because you had no time to blow dry, straighten, curl or even think about your hair because you have been trapped inside? Hat. When in doubt, hat.
  3. Because they are a simple and oft-forgotten particular that really pulls it all together. Have you ever felt real hum-drum but then you throw on your sunglasses and a sporty bucket hat and feel instantly better like a mod-ish, late 90s, Britpop fox (and somewhat incognito to your kids)? Yes! That’s the ticket!!

Try these on for size:

Maison Michel: colored straw hat

Maison Michel: plain straw hat

Isabel Marant: Tie dye bucket hat

Zara: black baseball cap

Show me your Flare

We’ve been mom jean-ing for a few seasons now and I am feeling like it’s time for some FLARE again. Flares originated in the 60s / 70’s, took flight in the 80s, and definitely made an appearance in the early aughts. Those early decades all featured the high-waisted flare (which I personally prefer), while the early 00s specialized in the low-waisted style which feels a little passé. I recently pulled out my flare jeans and was reminded how much they elongate the leg and look great with a heel.

Chatting with Elyse Walker

When she decided to open her first store in 1999 in Los Angeles, Elyse Walker set out to create a retail experience that prided itself on impeccable customer service and superb selection. She wanted to create a store that harkened back to the places of business that she loved while growing up on the east coast—places that were simply known by the proprietors first or last name and that were always synonymous with a choice shopping experience.
