New Hats – Worth the Price

I have a large collection of hats. For some reason, I cannot leave the house without sporting a hat. The strange thing is that I alternate between only about a dozen or so different ball caps.

The other day I realized that all of my favourite hats look ragged and worn. Many of them are sun-bleached and not nearly as sharp as they should be.

I decided that I needed to buy a few new hats and retire a few of the older ones.

I had been sporting a plain blue ball cap that I picked up in the spring. I only spent $5 on that hat and I got an entire season out of it.

I have never spent a lot of money on my hats. I usually spend anywhere from $5 to $20 on them.

This new hat cost me $25.

This one was $35.

They are both gorgeous hats though. They fit good and I really like the way they look on me. The black hat is textured as well. 

I spent half an hour in the store trying to figure out whether or not I should spend so much money on hats. I then realized that I had been rocking certain hats for years now. Why not spend money on something that I could wear for years?

I don’t know if I should have a hat collection anymore. Maybe I should just buy hats that I like every season, have a nice rotation of them, and then retire them for good.

That sounds like a plan.

  1. Hi Hilary,

    The snow we are getting right now is ridiculous. I didn't even make it into school today. I got stuck and had to get the automobile club to pull me out. So now I am enjoying the day off.

    I love hats. I'm surprised that I haven't blogged about this before. I never go out without wearing one.

    I have some that are more suited to the winter too. We call them toques here.

    Have a great day! Thanks for the comment.
