Back in March I took a trip to Phoenix, Arizona for a conference I was presenting at for a research study I had conducted during my undergrad years at Shepherd University. To my surprise, Arizona stole my heart with the dry heat and crazy fit people. I looked at my dad, who came to support me at the conference, that these are my kind of people. Everyone had a unique style, the food was crazy good, and the weather was amazing.
Now if you know me or follow me on my two instagram accounts, both @levi_amour or @tessington95, then you know I am obsessed with hats. I think they can add an extra flare to your outfit for both day and night. So long story short, I stumbled upon this hat shop called Aztex Hats in Old Town Scottsdale that just so happens to have people like hat designer, Nick Fouquet come in. His hats are amazing and is a hat designer for the stars, so to speak. I have never had a custom hat done before, so you can guess my reaction to be like a kid in a candy store. I literally spent three hours in the shop discussing hats and what exactly I wanted. The cool thing is that this hat shop is run
by two women. Many times people think hats are made by men, but not this place. So this made it extra special because I am a huge supporter of empowering women, because lets face it, who runs the world? Girls! Sorry guys.
Like I said, I love hats and this hat can certainly be worn in Summer, but it was designed more so for Fall and Winter, so details on the hat will be shown then. For a more darker look, such as this outfit, throw on some cut high waisted shorts, a flowy boho top, wear your hair with a natural beach wave, throw on a wide brim hat, and hello gorgeous! It is great for concerts, a night out with friends, or even wear it during the day when you’re at the beach. I love a good boho look, especially with my hair. I don’t know about you ladies, but I look for the easy way out. My hair is naturally curly so I look for products that are going to save me from frizz and keep my lions mane in check. Girls with curly hair or wave definitely need a good boho look in their closets, much like this one. It’s easy, affordable, and quite simply cute!
