Marianne: Contest Entry

See Hats In The Belfry contest details here.

I tried and tried to put together an outfit with one of Belfry's adorable winter hats, of which there are many, but I am dreaming of warm weather. More specifically, I'm dreaming of my family's condo in Naples, Florida. So instead, I decided to pick one of their men's hats (the adorable Panama Downturn Fedora), and use that as a jumping off point.
I would put my hair in braids, top with the hat, and pull on this dress as a bathingsuit coverup. This would be perfect for walking down to the Naples Beach Club for a pina colada at sunset.

Underneath the cover up, my favorite retro-inspired swimsuit:

And since this is a fantasy, I'd have these perfect nude clog sandals on. Sigh. Dreamy.

Add a fun bright bag to hold my book, sunscreen, and keys:

And I'm set. Oh man. It's 13 degrees here and snowing. I could cry.


  1. Very cute! I have that swimsuit, too, and I love it. It covers all the lumps and bumps.

  2. It really is miraculously flattering. And comfortable! I could cut a bitch for some warm sunniness.
