Child’s winter hat

The owners of he Short Hat Company, a small family business in Colorado, sent over this adorable winter hat for Leta. It’s called the Bella, and it’s printed faux suede with an ultra soft sherpa lining. She fell in love with it when I showed it to her, which says a lot because she is a notorious hat hater, a total hat bigot, and the lining is so soft that she’s actually willing to wear it. Plus, the pattern is super cute and will match all her princess dresses. BONUS.
