Thrift Style Thursday – HATTITUDE

June 5, 2014

Hello, friends, and Happy Thrift Style Thursday!  Today’s theme is “Hip Headgear,” and I couldn’t be more excited to share my first ever thrifted hat!


I will readily admit that I am one of those people who loves hats, but seldom wears them.  I only own a handful of hats for that very reason, which is why I was super excited when I found this adorable woven cloche hat at my newest favorite consignment store, Crossroads Trading Co.  My mom and I took in a ton of clothes that we cleaned out of our closets and ended up with over $100 of store credit, so we set to work shopping and came away with some great pieces, including this cute n’ quirky top from a previous TST post, and of course, my new, never-worn, with-the-tags-still-on-it, hat.


I love the super cute, big ‘ole bow on the back of the hat; it adds a really fun touch to an otherwise pretty plain cloche.  While styling this outfit, I also realized that this fun mustache necklace (a gift from my niece – thank you, Makayla!!), matched the vintage style of the hat perfectly.  Something about cloche hats and mustaches just works, you know what I mean?  ;)

As for the top, I am officially obsessed with all things white, eyelet and lace for this summer.  I got this pretty, breezy crop top at American Eagle for only $9 when all their clearance items were an additional 70% off a couple weeks ago.  The skirt is one I’ve had in my closet for years and years, but the basic black and white pattern never go out of style, and I love the hint of lace trim that peeks out at the hem.  The shoes are another new addition.  I love my knock-off Keds from Payless, so I just couldn’t help but bring these pretty coral eyelet tennies home with me.

The details: white eyelet crop top (American Eagle) // pattern skirt (Forever 21, old) // cloche straw hat (thrifted, Crossroads Trading Co.) // coral eyelet tennis shoes (Payless) // mustache necklace (gift) // coral braided leather bracelet (H&M)


So, are you a wearer of hats?  Do you have a teeming collection of fedoras, boaters, bowlers, bonnets and sombreros, or are you more of a one-hat wonder??  As always, thanks for reading and don’t forget to vote for next month’s theme over at Sheri’s “Gone Thrifting” page!  Here’s the rest of the fantastic Thrift Style Thursday crew:

    OMG that hat…I can’t even. I love hats – particularly cloche hats! – and have been trying to wear floppy sun hats more in the summer. I have to admit that I am really, REALLY jealous of this hat. It’s so cute. I can’t. I just can’t. :) – Brianna

    Love hats but don’t wear them much is so many people’s story! But you are rocking this look. It especially gets difficult when one has shorter hair…. but you picked the perfect hat and great pair up in the form of a skirt. Also love the word “hattitude”
    Love, Wink n Pout

    Oh, that hat is divine! I love the bow detailing on the back. It reminds me of something Kiera Knightly would have worn in Atonement. :) (Of course, your ending would be better…) Great post, Kristi!

    Very nice outfit for summer :)
    I love hats but I only own two (although I can’t find the second anymore which was a huge sun hat). I am planning to buy one for the summer though :)

      Thank you! It sounds like we’re pretty similar, this is only my third hat (not counting beanies). You should definitely get yourself a summer hat!! :)

        Oh I have way more beanies and bonnets for winter :D
        Yes, I probably should :)

    Super cute hat – that was a great find! That necklace is adorable too! Your whole outfit is so cute and girly and I love that you paired it with red sneakers for a pop of color and to give it a more casual feel. Great look, girl! :)

      Thank you, thank you!! I definitely can’t deny that I love my tennis shoes, I wear them constantly, probably more than any other style of shoe, so I’m sure you’ll be seeing more! ;)
