Hats Off (and On) at the Hampton Classic

The Hampton Classic Grand Prix was a study in confusion on Sunday, as the starting time kept changing due to evolving weather conditions. Despite the early uncertainty, those who attended enjoyed the competition and the people-watching.

When the action wasn't heating up in the ring, the place to be was at the hat booths in the Boutique Garden, where a variety of whimsical and sophisticated hats enticed serious buyers and those "just looking." Others donned pieces from their own collection, which were just as fetching.
