Oh I love that ecru and black straw on Sophie! What a beautiful hat!
So many beautiful hats to look at. Thank you Hat Queen.
Princess Hisako’s silvery blue brocade hat is very chic.
And I love the mushroom brimmed ecru hat on Countess of Wessex. It deserves another outing at Ascot.
The India Hicks video is wonderful. I do hope she wears the pale ivory brimmed hat. Lady Pamela’s memory of past events is incredible.
The Royal blue and ivory boater is gorgeous.
The weather forecast for Royal Ascot week is very good.
One more royal hat related gem- India Hicks looking through her mother’s (Lady Pamela Hicks) hat collection for something to wear to Ascot this week!
What a great idea for a series on Lady P’s hats or the Mountbatten family including her mother and sister.
Great extras this week HQ! My 3 favorites are:
1. the fuchsia fascinator from Spain – light and airy, perfect this time of year.
2. the royal blue boater – wonderful saturated color, and delightful pattern.
3. the tangerine/orange panama sun hat – it should be available in EVERY color!
Mrs. Jimbo and I attended a wonderful dinner to celebrate a dear Italian couple’s 50th wedding anniversary today at a Maggiano’s Restaurant near us. (Is this a familiar chain, or merely local here in the midwest?) My wife wore a cobalt blue dress and matching small fascinator, I wore a suit and tie, as did the celebrating groom. Guess what . . . we were overdressed, but I think the most appropriately dressed. What would you have worn? The wedding couple were impeccably dressed in dark suit and semi-formal dress.
