Janessa Leoné Giveaway

Over the last few years I’ve become seriously addicted to my hats, finding them more and more essential to my everyday style, especially as a mom. The obsession all started while I was pregnant—what else are you going to buy for yourself during that time, am I right? But I also give credit to the discovery of Janessa Leoné hats, which can instantly change or enhance your look, make you feel 10 times cooler and hide your hair if it’s one of those days. I’m not sure how I made it through life without a handful of good hats but all I can say is thank goodness for Janessa Leoné who makes it so easy, almost too easy, to fall in love with a style that suits you.

If you haven’t been to her amazing store at Platform in Culver City, I suggest you make a trip! It’s beyond fun to try each style on and you’re bound to find one that will become your wardrobe’s best friend. Here are my top styles that I wear on repeat…

The Janessa Leoné Hats I live in…


The Fawn, one of her latest styles that I’ve been wearing almost everyday lately. It’s perfect with just about anything but I love wearing mine with long, simple dresses and bikinis, duh.


The Klint, easily the most worn hat in my wardrobe. It has that subtle nod to the past so I grab anything with the same vibe—antique-like blouses and dresses, liberty prints, vintage denim and loafers.


The Mattie, the hat you get on a waiting list for. I literally feel like a different version of myself in this hat and I love it. It’s so Bridgette Bardot in France.

JL Mini Styles

And then she made mini versions… drop the mic. I don’t think it gets any cuter. Elin’s pick? The Calla Light Pink Mini.

  3. What a lovely opportunity and giveaway! These hats look amazingly constructed and beautiful. They add that perfect touch to any outfit.

  4. Not to mention preventing sun damage. I hated wearing a hat until I realized it was the only foolproof way to avoid sunburn when out all day. If you’re going to wear one might as well be stylish!

  5. You look amazing in this beautiful hat. It’s also easier to tell our little ones they need to wear a hat if we wear one too! Happy mother’s day!!

  8. I have wanted to start a Janessa collection for my daughter and I ‍ This would definitely get us started. Thank you for sharing your favorites

  9. I’ve always loved seeing the mother/daughter style, but mostly because of the way it frames the creative and empowering relationship I imagine you share with her. My husband and I returned home a few minutes ago following our IVF procedure. So when I opened Instagram and saw the mother’s day stories you posted today alongside your daughter, today it was especially touching. And hopeful. One day I hope to be able to share inspiration with my son or daughter. And hope that he or she shares my appreciation for creativity inspiring hats 🙂 Cheers!

  38. I believe I discovered Janessa Leone from you and Jacey Duprie. Her styles are all SO flattering and I cannot get over the Mini versions!

  39. These hats are classic items that never go out of style. Great way to protect yourself from the sun and look stylish at the same time.
