Classic, Poised & Confident



Today’s a day when I do not spend a lick of time worrying about the heat or humidity or my hair because today is a big hat day.

It also happens to be Derby Day and there are far more important things to be tending to!

This quick post is about hats though and if you know me, you know I’m a hat kind of gal.

My favorite style is a classic straw that I can dress up or dress down, depending on where I’m headed to.

That’s why I love hats from Peter Beaton Studio in Nantucket.

Every Peter Beaton signature hat comes with a complimentary hat box as it should.  Thank you P.B.!

I’ve written a few hat stories before in honor of summer & Derby season but today I wanted to include some real beauties.

This is my absolute fave for Derby!

Last year Garden & Gun hosted the 2011 Derby Breakfast at Farmington Plantation before heading to Churchill Downs.

The guests were classic, poised & confident and the hats were stunning!
