Which hat(s) do you wear?  Some people are shoe lovers, some are jewelry lovers, but I'm more of a hat lover.  My eyes devour everything,  but I just have this natural tendency to try on hats whenever i shop.  If a lady can't have too many shoes, then she can't have too many hats either.  Of the 9 personalities, I wear #4 (The Individualist) and #9 (The peacemaker) to be most accurate. I probably wear bits and pieces of the other 7 types. I am now spiritually awakened!

 I secretly wish I could wear one of these outrageous hats in great weather (no rain or wind) but sunny and beautiful summer days.  Hats are everyone's much needed summer accessory to stay calm, cool, and stylish, especially if you have plans for the beach, picnic in the park, or a backyard BBQ  for July 4th. I got an  idea -- how about designing your own hat with July 4th theme? 

Feeling Creative ?
