Spring is in full swing, which means I get to indulge in transitioning my wardrobe from a worn out season to a fresh one. So long boots. See you next season coats and chunky knits. Later wool hats. Hello sandals! Yo off the shoulder blouses! Hiya straw hats! I mean, honestly, who doesn’t love what the sun brings?
To celebrate the start of spring, our favorite milliner Lola Ehrlich of Lola Hats is sharing a super easy tutorial for one of her best sellers: The Alpargatas. We’re absolutely smitten with the way she’s threaded grosgrain ribbon through the crown of the oversized raffia hat, leaving just enough slack to tie around the neck. And the raw, fringed edge and erratic stitching is just is flat out FUN. I’m in love with this hat – it’s sure to be a spring and summer staple!
