Donut You Love This Hat?

First, I would like to give a big shout out to the nice people working at the Long Beach Big Five Sporting Goods store for making this post possible! You see, I had to do an outfit change in order to do this post, but this area had no public restrooms whatsoever. I went in to Big Five and looked sad like I really needed to go to the bathroom and they gladly let me use the employee restroom. They probably thought it was weird when I came out in a different outfit but maybe no one noticed! Also, I give props to my husband for not only holding my hat while I was inside, but for wearing it. He texted me this when I was in the restroom: "When you come outside, I'll be the man on the corner across from Chuck E. Cheese's wearing the pink woman's donut hat!" Sure enough, when I went outside he was indeed there wearing the hat!

So, speaking of hats, I absolutely love this hat from Charming Charlie. Unfortunately, it is now sold out but they do have a similar one with confetti that is equally adorable. The rainbow colored sprinkles on its brim add a colorful pop to any ensemble, plus I'll definitely be wearing it on National Donut Day. (It also looked great with what my husband was wearing too!) Another thing that I love is this new wall that just went up a few months ago in Long Beach. Move over West Hollywood, Long Beach is now becoming the epicenter for amazing, colorful walls!

  1. I love the story behind this post!! What a nice hubs, too! That hat is epic!!!

  2. Haha, when I need to change for outfit photos I just take my chances and do it in the car! But that was nice of the store to let you change. I suppose a retail store with a dressing room would be a good option too, no?
    And yes, it's hard not to love that hat!

  3. Ha! They probably didn't even notice. Love the sprinkles on the hat. Donuts for life!

  4. I love that your husband has a sense of humor wearing that cute donut hat. Love the top and clutch too - what a steal! And as always the best-looking walls out of any style blogs, ever!

  5. Changing is always one of those blogger problems. I love the donut hat and all the colors you're always!

  6. This is such a darling outfit. Love the hat and the colorful necklace with your pretty top. I know changing can be a pain in the butt, but they sounded nice about it :-)
