today marks the first official day of fall, and i for one cannot wait to start accessorizing for the cooler temps (that are yet to arrive in houston). hats are my go to accessory for fall; they can make any old pair of jeans look chic and an otherwise ordinary ensemble unique. i love the maison michel hats and the monogrammed M on the satin ribbon but since i cannot find them anywhere online, i found a similar (and more affordable) version c/o bec & bridge. i love venz edit's idea of monogramming the hat with your own initial to give it the maison michel effect on a personal note. get them here.
style tip: pastels are huge on the runway for spring 2012, wear you hat into spring next year and be on trend for the season.
