The Fall Accessory I Can’t Live Without + One for YOU!

You’ve seen me wearing this accessory a dozen times on Wellesley & King, and for good reason. In my opinion, this one little touch can be the dotted “i” or crossed “t” when it comes to styling your outfit.

Scrolling through the images below, it’s easy to see that my go-to fall accessory is a wool fedora. I like the way they take each of the looks below from something simple and basic to effortlessly chic in a matter of seconds. I have two: one light and one dark. I often rotate between the two when styling my fall looks. This truly is my favorite accessory for the fall months, and below are just a few reasons why…


  • They’re the easiest way to camouflage undone hair when you’re in a rush.
  • They take your outfit from everyday simple to chic and on-trend in under a minute.
  • And (of course, for practical reasons) they protect your skin from the sun to keep you wrinkle-free.

Because I really do love this accessory–and mostly because you guys have been so awesome and supportive on Wellesley & King–I wanted to give one lucky reader their own wool fedora to rock this fall! Scroll down to enter!

The winner of this giveaway will receive their own wool fedora, and the best part? This hat is adjustable (whaaat?!); it has an elastic band inside that allows you to custom fit it to your head. If you have a child’s head like I do, you know that this is BIG!

    I would like to see a post about the best fall and winter jackets and how to style them with your work attire. You have so many great dressy winter jackets in your posts. Maybe add your favorite jackets and the colors and styles of jackets that go with the most outfits. I like to keep my woredrobe small so having 10 jackets isn’t for me, I need a jacket suggestion that will work with many outfits and that is on the lightweight side. Winter doesn’t really happen when you live in the southwest. It’s still in the 100s and I have many more months to think about “fall” clothes.

  • Exactly one week ago, @attybernard and I went on our last coffee date before spending the rest of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation for our little girl. Something about that day just made us feel like she wasn’t going to be long. The very next day she joined our world, and these have been the best 6 days of my entire life. 💕 #newmom #newparents #newbornbaby #pittsburghphotographer #thehappynow #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese
  • Settling into our family of three, and this guy is the best teammate a girl could ask for. I never knew I could feel so much love—I could burst. #newparents  #thehappynow #livebeautifully #postitfortheaesthetic #inspiremyinstagram #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #postitfortheaesthetic
  • This girl entered our worlds yesterday afternoon—exactly two weeks ahead of schedule and right at the end of the Pats game—just letting mommy and daddy know who’s gonna be in charge of the schedule from now on. #newbabygirl
  • I hear we have some snow coming Pittsburgh, friends! 💕 Am I the only weirdo who is actually excited about this? You can find me in all the cozy sweaters and blankets, snuggled up on the couch. 😍 #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers
  • I finally got a vanity at age 31. I never knew what I was missing! ☺️ #husbandwin #ikeahack #affordabledecor
  • Hard to believe how soon our little one will be joining us. Feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly ready to meet her. I’m curious—any other moms to be out there? If so, when are you due? And those of you who are already moms, what words of wisdom would you share with those of us about to become mamas, too? #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers #37weeks 📷: @julieanne514
