Love this weather! I am still planning all my spring fashions and this week is all about the HAT. Spring hats are fun and feminine and make every outfit 10 times better. The only problem is what is my hat limit? I love my spring palate of natural fibers, bright colors and feminine cuts. So I have selected my top 3 hats for me personally. You will have to come in for your own three.

The first hat is my pretty yet natural girl hat that will be my 'date with hubby' hat. So when we dine al fresco...I am too cute for my sweetie.

The second hat is my 'hanging with the girls' hat. Flirty, fun and a punch of attitude for our hours of giggling and goofing off.

The third hat...this first one will be my Spring statement piece. You will see me at Derby Days in this beauty. I will of course adorn it with flowers, scarves and ribbon to ensure my 'hat win' at Derby Days.

Keeping it Local

I have been more of a cocktails sort of gal but developing a taste for wine as I aged. Now as I enter my third childhood (aka...old age for the young at heart) I am developing a fondness for the boutique beers. But who doesn't' like a beer that you can toss a fruit wedge in??? Tasty and healthy, right?

Found out that in the past couple years a small brewery started our own backyard....Olde Mecklenburg Brewery (OMB). This local brewery produces German style ales and lagers in their 15,000 square foot facility on Southside Drive in S. Charlotte. They are open to the public for beer tastings, but the Boulevard at Noda is going to bring the beer to 36th & N. Davidson. So, this gallery crawl...BLVD at NODA will have its own Biergarten set up for this joyous occasion. Must be 21 to enter and exhibit courteous and gracious behavior so that all enjoy this experience.
