Hi!

I'm Whitney. Welcome to my little slice of the Internet, where I talk about life in Seattle and our travels beyond it. I have a handsome husbro I may have met outside of a bar, two crazy felines, and a fresh little human born last spring. Do you like reality TV, sampling all the products, and pickled veggies? Me, too! 

I'm so glad  you're here. 

Brand Next Door: George Hats

Brand Next Door: George Hats

Before I was ever pregnant, I knew that my first baby would be a son and that I would make sure I dressed him like the little man he is, not some cheesy caricature of a baby. To each her own, but about this, I felt (and feel) VERY strongly. He would be a small person, not a cartoon, even if he was as cute as one. 

And, before I was ever pregnant, I started following @george_hats on Instagram. I loved the baby bums they posted and their fun trucker hats. I knew when the time came to get our baby sun protection, I'd look to them. 

I've put ODP in hats since he was born, starting with beanies and eventually billed versions. I didn't know if he'd keep them on, but he has come to not only LOVE hats, but to ask for one every day when we get him dressed. "Hat! Hat!" he'll say, pointing to one he sees, even if it's not his. He already has quite the collection, including two George Hats my mom sent him. 

People often ask me where I get his hats, and I honestly have had to search all over to find infant/toddler hats that are branded or show off our favorite teams. They're not easy to find! But, George makes that search a little easier. 

George Hats was inspired by my little man George and his love to be outdoors! As a mom, I wanted to keep him covered from the sun and elements all year long while also looking cool!

Plus, George's mama, the woman behind the hats, shares my style philosophy: "George Hats was inspired by my little man George and his love to be outdoors! As a mom, I wanted to keep him covered from the sun and elements all year long while also looking cool! So I created a product to keep your babes and mine protected in style! Now as a mom of two boys, it has become my mission to make rad hats for your littles that also have function! Every hat is handmade with love here in California!"
