When you stay for two weeks in a hotel you start to know the guests and as you don't know their name yet, you give them surnames. There was a little old lady round from top to bottom, which had a different hat every day. I never saw her without a hat. The hat always fitted with her clothes, a dress, shorts or even a bathing suit She had hats in all colors, black, red, and white and always with a ribbon around and flowers in different colors, which looked very cheerful.

The only thing was the hat didn't really fit with a bathing suit, it looked a bit strange. With her dresses she even looked as if she were invited to a reception of the Queen. We called her "Madame Chapeau" which means "Mrs Hat" !

Unfortunately I only could take a picture twice, the black and white hats with beautiful flowers are missing !

Last year we had seen her at the same time and admired her hats at each meal ! She changed every day. We asked ourselves how she had put all these hats in her suitcase ? I wondered if she would also sleep with her hat ?? However I never saw her in the swimming pool with her hat, but walking around the pool in her bathing suit and a fitting hat.

Quite a character!

My hats consist of the odd baseball cap I wear less because I want them and more to keep my shaved head protected from the sun.

I should get a fedora.

That is unusual as you couldn't describe it as a sun hat. I expect she wears them at home as well as being on holiday.

This post made me smile because I also love hats. I wonder if anyone will ever give me that name. :)

I have actually started a collection of hats to cover me up from the sun. Since I had facial cancer, I am very careful! My hats, however, are not that wild! lol

I'd love to know how she transports them! lol

I think hats should come back. They look so stylish.

That's fun for her - she considers it her trademark I imagine. I wish I looked good in hats -- but even if I did I certainly wouldn't wear one as often as that!

She seems to be very fashionable with her various hats :-) I like wearing hats, too!
