Her Name Was Celebration

When I was 11 years old , I had this crazy hat obsession. I would wear those little newsboy caps around. I remember I wore one into homeroom (BTW-It was a green and yellow plaid and I wore it with a magenta-pink shirt and I literally do not know what the heck I was thinking :P) and I felt so rebellious because hats were prohibited in school. Well, until my homeroom teacher told me to take it off like five minutes later. Whatever. Anyway, throughout sixth grade I created this collection of newsboy caps and would wear them outside of school. I think I had almost 10 over my two year obsession period. It was really bad and that among many other middle school memories makes me shudder. Blah.

It wasn’t until recently that I wanted to wear hats unless it was wintertime. And then all of a sudden, I had another hat obsession and I just want to buy hats now! I got this black felt one at Forever 21 the other day and I have already worn it three times! I also bought myself a cute boater hat from Choies and I cannot wait until that arrives too! So expect to see more hats with this huge hat obsession of mine.

What kinds of hats are you into this summer?

    I love this look! I have been looking for a trendy hat like this that would still be cute for summer.

    This one is adorable!

  2. Denise says:

    Congratulations for that milestone on bloglovin! I don’t have a big number there, but little by little people will get to know your blog, it’s very sweet! I can understand about hats at school :) and that you felt rebellious :) I think this hat now is really cool and I loved your top, too! Looking very pretty!

    • Olivia says:

      Aw thank you so much, Denise! You always have the sweetest things to say :)

  3. Lindsey P. says:

    You are totally rocking this hat! You look so awesome in this whole outfit! And I loved your story about your hat obsession. :)

    Congrats on your Bloglovin’ milestone! I just hit 50 followers too and was so excited!

    As for my hat obsession this summer, I am really into BIG hats. The bigger the sunhat the better. :) (I can’t rock the littler ones as well as you!)

    I hope you had a great 4th, Olivia!


    • Olivia says:

      Aw thank you so much, Lindsey :) Hats are super fun to wear and I am sure they look lovely on you!

  4. Linet Nkirote says:

    You are right to have an obsession cause you look great in them. Would love to see the newsboy caps on you though…you’ve made me curious with the childhood memory.
    I looooove your crop-top and shorts too. Can’t get enough of the background either.

    Am currently obsessed with wide-brimmed hats.

    Kisses from Nairobi.


    • Olivia says:

      Hahah unfortunately, I gave away the last of them last summer. But I think it would still be fun to wear them-they just gave me grim middle school memories lol! Thanks for the lovely comment :)

    Such a cute summer outfit!


    • JOURNAL OF STYLE says:

      Beautiful top, Olivia! Looking chic with a hat, babe! Though it would be a PERFECT combo for Coachella too! 😉


  6. Kuo says:

    these hats are cool because they add this element of mystery to any look! other than beanies with balls on top (and only the ones with balls on top), i’m not too into hats because i have a weirdly shaped head haha


    • Olivia says:

      I actually would love a pom-pom beanie! :)

  7. Samantha says:

    When I was a kid I hated hats, but now I like them 😛 this look is super cute, I love it!

    • Olivia says:

      Yeah I definitely went through a hateful-hat phase but I’m totally getting into them again :)

  8. May says:

    Congrats on 50, Olivia! You deserve so much more, and I’m so happy to be one of your earlier readers, because I’m sure your blog will grow even more, hehehehe

    I’ve been having a hat obsession too, but my obsession is sadder than yours because I don’t own any! I can only watch people wear them and drool in jealousy. YOURS IS GORGEOUS. And ahh, your top is so cute!

  23. Katherine Lou says:

    Cute outfit! Your top is amazing. I love hats as well especially since my hair is going through a “awkward hair length” phase. My favorite hat is a wide brimmed fedora !

    • Olivia says:

      Ah that’s why I am afraid to cut my hair-for awkward and annoying phases of regrowth. But yes- hats are such a great idea to help you get through the awkward phases of hair growth :)

    This hat is so gorgeous! I can’t really wear hats because my head’s so small, they end up covering my eyes 😛
    Looks very pretty on you though- I adore the outfit you’ve put with it x

    • Olivia says:

      Hmm maybe try a fedora hat or a cute bowler hat?

  27. Gabrielle says:

    I can see why this is your latest obsession, you massively suit this hat! I love the styling of this outfit and how wonderfully happy you look :)

    Congratulations on 50 followers on BlogLovin hun! That’s a huge milestone and I still remember when I hit 50 followers, I was over the moon!

    I have been thinking of getting myself a hat too, it’s just a great way to dress up an outfit but I am afraid that I might look too dress up? I know it sounds silly but living in a very small blue collar town is kind of hard because there’s no one into fashion. LOL!

    ps: Thank you so so much for your sweet comment on my post, Olivia. It really meant so much to know that there are people appreciate the effort that I put in my blog. I’ll say it here again, your words really made my day, thank you again. xx

    I love hats but then again, I don’t really like wearing them 😉 Though I really love the one you’re wearing, it’s so cute and it looks amazing on you :)


  41. Rachel Holliday says:

    You are gorgeous! this childhood hat obsession sounds funny haha :) I love this black felt hat, I have a similar one myself and I think they just add an instant oomph to an outfit! Congrats on your Bloglovin milestone too- I have just followed you, so now you have 51 😉 Looking forward to seeing more of your blog

    Rachel xx

    • Olivia says:

      Yay thank you so much Rachel for the follow! I think I followed you back so I am glad we can keep in touch :)

  42. Jane says:

    It looks cute! I only really have a beret and a sunhat but I hardly wear them haha.

  43. Nevena Krstic says:

    Lovely outfit! You look great in a hat, I can’t seem to find one that suits me :) xx

  44. Lily says:

    Oooh, I especially like the balance of the look with the black hat and shorts. That lace crop top is also perfect for summer, and that leaf necklace is a lovely touch.

    I also had some cringe-worthy predilections as a middle schooler–as in shorts over striped leggings, or even shorts over skinny jeans, and just a general obsession with over-layering haha. Hats are a great new love though–they’re cute and utilitarian. Gotta keep our faces protected from the sun!

    Glad to hear your fourth was spent well and hope you have the loveliest week.
