I love pretty gardens and dressy hats, and when I have an excuse to combine both—along with a wonderful luncheon and Carolina Herrera fashion show—I am in classic Heaven.

The 12th Annual Hats in The Garden benefit for Naples Botanical Garden  took place last week, and as always it was a fantastic display of landscaping, fashion, and millinery eye candy. (Presenting sponsor Northern Trust Bank, retail sponsor Saks Fifth Avenue, and caterer Lurcat.)

This year, I decided to capture some of it in a video since I did not want to forget it. Everyone looked so lovely! To view it, scroll to the bottom of this page.
