We spent the Easter holiday in Washington, enjoying the beautiful spring weather and the last bit of cherry blossom glory.
I was delighted to see an array of proper Easter hats when we went to services at Christ Church in Georgetown on Sunday.
These are not the types of hats that you wear to the beach, to keep the sun off your face.
These are hats that you wear with a smart suit and pearls, walking into church on the arm of a man in a dapper, seersucker suit.
Madras, or pastel bow tie, preferred.
