I have a kid who loves to dress up. Tutus. Grass skirts. Princess dresses. Cowgirl boots. Our dress-up box is full of fun stuff that I’m pretty sure the Bug would wear to school if I let her.

Oh wait. She DOES wear the cowgirl boots to school.

But when it comes to ‘functional’ hats… well, forgetaboutit. The hat goes on. She smiles at her reflection in the window pane. We walk outside. The hat comes off. Repeat.

Which is why I was delighted to pick-up the APPAMAN Emma Hat a few weeks ago from Wee Chic Boutique. It’s modern style puts the FUN into functional. So the Bug keeps it on her head.

Score.

Want to nab a (cool) APPAMAN hat of your own? Wee Chic has a great selection. Nordstrom, Tiny Toes and Pied Piper are local retailers that also carry the line.

Here’s a little monster face action at the Mt. Washington Starbucks last week. Because monster face pictures just rock.
