What I Wore, Hats In The Garden 2015

The 13th annual Hats In The Garden is this Wednesday, November 9, 2016, and I am so excited to be attending again this year.

The event benefits Naples Botanical Garden, 170 acres of lush open landscaped land designed around 10 different gardens, three miles from downtown Naples.

I have attended this event at the garden since the first year, and I look forward to it every fall not only because it raises funds for such a beautiful cause but also because it’s so much fun! When else would I get to dress up in a pretty dress and hat with 550 other women, and do so in such a lovely locale?

Last year, I wore a navy polka dot dress with tan accessories. To see what I’m wearing this year, visit my “What I Wore” blog post (when it publishes later this week) here. To see what other women wore last year (and this coming Wednesday), visit my “What They Wore” blog posts, here and (when it publishes later this week) here.

Cheers to another successful Hats In The Garden in 2016!
