I remember the days that you would rarely see a woman in the southern churches without a hat. My Mother, aunts and women of her generation wore hats, matching shoes and purses to church. Sometimes, they added gloves to round out their look. How chic! There is a lady in my hometown named Molly. I have never seen her without her signature hats. Her husband, Jessie jokingly says that she owns hundreds in every style and color. Hats make a woman look distinguished, sophisticated, and all dressed up. Although I am not a hat wearer, I love the look!
