DIY: Adding Vintage Accessories To Your Hat

DIY: Adding Vintage Accessories To Your Hat

 The Happy Trails hat has shockingly been my “go-to” style the past six months. It’s shocking because it’s the smallest brim hat I own, sitting at about a 2.5” brim, and it was my first time trying out the cattleman style crown: rest assured, I am obsessed. 

There are countless of reasons why I love this hat but the main is because its super effortless. It isn’t heavy on your head; you practically forget you are even wearing it all day. Plus, the cream coloring with the slightly contrasted ribbon edge binding makes it the perfect color combo to wear with my entire wardrobe. Plus, there is an entire bad-ass quality to a white hat with a cool crown, am I right? 

 

Because it was so effortless, I didn’t add too much in the accessories department in the beginning. Just a couple classic feathers. One of my favorite past-times and side hustles is thrifting and poking around vintage shops. I stopped into The Outpost last weekend for the first time after following their social media for months. Such. Rad. Stuff. Y’all. I met one of the owners named Lauren whose vintage business is called The West Place based out of Nashville, but with pickins’ from all over the USA. Clothing, paintings, turquoise, blankets, bolo ties, pins – you name it!  

There were a couple dishes of loads and loads of pins and little charms. Lauren said she was obsessed with anything mini (she even had baby cowgirl boots!) As I was rifling through the dishes of pins and charms, I found some super cute western themed ones and thought wow these would look so amazing on my cattleman Happy Trails. Headed off to grab a mini hand-sewing kit and I was on my way! I am in no way someone who knows what they’re doing with a needle and thread, but it made me so happy to see my idea in my head come into light. Now, my Happy Trails has just a little bit more personality than before!
