What is my hat size?

One of the questions I get asked the most is, "What is my hat size? How do I know?"

Instructions for measuring your head are on my FAQ page, but I thought I should include the information in a blog post as well so that you can easily find it, or in case someone is not shopping with me in particular, but still would like to know in order to shop on other sites.

The majority of my hat styles have adjustable sizing, with the range noted in the product description.  To be sure that you fall within that range and that your hat will fit you comfortably, it is best to measure your head.  Here's how:

Use a soft tape measure to measure your head circumference as shown in the photo #1.  This is the most important measurement - the one known as your "hat size" - and the one noted in my hat descriptions.  It will also be the one referenced when you shop on most other women's hats sites.

If your head circumference (photo #1) falls out of the standard range for your chosen style when shopping with me   - either smaller or larger - then you may custom order your hat by choosing the "custom size" option and then including your head circumference, and the other three measurements illustrated above, in the "special instructions" section upon checkout. This will insure that your hat will be made to your specifications, and will fit you perfectly.

Note: if you do not have access to a soft tape measure, you can use something like a string or a ribbon, mark with ink or a straight pin, and then place it up against a flat ruler to see your measurements.

If you have any questions about hat sizing or how to measure your head correctly, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Happy shopping!

Postcard January : Snowy Days
Happy New Year!

I hope you had a marvelous holiday season and are off to a great start in 2016.
We were lucky enough to have a white Christmas and it's lasted into New Year's Day and beyond.  It's been a proper winter so far.  I brought my camera with me on a walk around my neighborhood a few mornings ago, and I thought I'd share a few photos of what the new year looks like from here.
(Freshie, this is for you, xo.)

The autumn days have been so lovely, with warm sun and crisp cool air.  My wardrobe is slowly transitioning into proper autumn attire - I add a sweater here, a layer there, boots instead of sandals.

These wide-leg trousers and lightweight patterned sweater are the perfect companions to my black wide-brimmed Ripple Effect hat.  The trousers, an Anthropologie buy from about 10 years ago, are a heavyweight cotton with a generous cuff and crisscross lacing at the back waist.  I've worn them to death and they are still going strong. The sweater is a Marc Jacobs beauty that I snagged at Century 21 in NYC on major clearance a few years back, and is a great mix of wool & cotton.  Also wearing my trusty All Saints boots.
I've done a couple of closet clear-outs recently, and it's always interesting to see what makes the cut and what I'm ready to let go of.  It's a pretty good bet that these two pieces will stay until they're worn through.
