Channel Amelia Earhart this FallMichelle Horton
When I was a little girl, I was fascinated by the mystery surrounding Amelia Earhart and I devoured anything I could read or watch on this woman. I would stare at her picture in the elementary school library, wondering what happened to that beautiful, smirking woman decked out in leather and goggles. She embodied courage, determination and all things unexplainable.
Maybe it’s my childhood obsession, but I’ve always loved aviator hats, which are perfect for the upcoming chilly weather. While I, of course, love the retro style for myself, these Earhart-inspired winter hats for kids are just too cute.
Here are our favorite Amelia Earhart-inspired looks for kids:
