Sunday Bests // Ode to Jackie

Hello, again!

Today is a very 1960s day as I pull out my three-piece checkered skirt suit, pumps, and pillbox hat. This style was made famous by First Lady Jackie Kennedy, who is known for her chic outfits and hats.

Below is a photo of Jackie Kennedy sporting a white pillbox hat, pearls, sunglasses, and a checkered jacket.


Her style was very popular in the early 60s.

I bought this hat at church sale last fall. Someone had pushed the top up to make it rounded, so it didn’t look like a pillbox hat at all. I bought it for $4, brought it home, and later discovered that the top should be pressed in to make it look right. It was a happy surprise to find that I had bought such a classic. It was good lesson learned, that sometimes things are not at all how they seem. When we first perceive something, it’s very possible that it will turn out to be completely different than the first impression it made. This doesn’t go just for hats, either. We can apply this to pretty much everything, including people, places, and other items.

When a first impression is made, let’s remember that it may not determine the future. It may turn out to be completely different after time. We just have to be patient and see!

What do you think about the 1960s pillbox hat?

Have you had any experiences with first impressions that didn’t establish the future?

Are you enjoying your summer?

      1. Those clips are amazing indeed! I didn’t think you used hairspray : ) , I was referring to Jackie’s picture 📷 The bonus of long hair, it does definitely give you a fluffy look!! It looks awesome : )

  1. I LOVE that hat, what a blessing you found it, and then to find out it was a true bill box hat! You look very elegant and stylish. You are so right about first impressions. I have had the first impression to be great and later find out it’s not all I thought it would be and vice versa. It’s always best to not judge, and just let God guide me.

    1. You’re so right about how we should let God guide us before we judge! I’ve have many of those first impressions, too. When you think it’s going to turn out great, and it doesn’t. Thanks you so much for reading!
