Hi Ain't No Mom Jeans —
Ali – Thanks for writing in! Baseball hats are so crazy-relevant right now that I say, keep wearing 'em! Seriously! Want some inspiration? Try this…
Personally, I'm kinda loving the look of keeping your hair down with the cap (like that cutie in the glasses), or in a low, messy pony (like the J.Crew image above). I'll bet a romantic half-up/half-down do' would work also.
Here's my take:
(wearing: Levi's denim leggings, Frye Carmen 3 strap boots, J.Crew factory chambray shirt, J.Crew sweatshirt, Anthropologie poncho)
See that "C"? It's for the Coopertown Padres, Mamas.
You're lookin' at the newest little slugger on the Coopertown Padres.
T-ball for four year olds? HYSTERICALLY ADORABLE. I mean seriously:
It's not even fair how stinkin' cute they are.
But I'm getting distracted, Mamas. Please bear with me – this is our first year doing (semi) organized sports. I'll be less obnoxious next year. I hope.
Back to Ali!! And hats!! We're talking hats!! And if I recall correctly, Ali was hoping for some additional suggestions. Hat baby-steps, if you will. Not a fashion statement hat. So we'll save this one for later:

Next summer, Ali. Next summer.
But for this summer, you could try a military-inspired cap. They are a slightly more fashion-y (wow – really?) version of the baseball cap. One of my BFF's, Sarah, always looks both casual and chic in hers. Luckily, I found a pic from last summer:
Isn't she cute? Love that girl.
Lastly, you've gotta try a fedora. Especially in straw. It doesn't have to be anything fancy or special, and I typically wear mine with comfy old jeans. Ah – I found a pic:
Ali, thanks again for writing in! And stay tuned – I have a feeling we'll be doing a hat roundup at some point….
