*I was sent this hat by Goorin Bros. but they didn't sponsor this post. You know I'm a fan of floppy hats. And this one is perfect for summer travel! I just had to share it! I'm going to be honest with you right now. My head is odd shaped and I have big ears. I'm okay with both of these things. However these issues really limit my hat choices. Similarly, I can't usually wear headbands. They pop right off the top of my cone-shaped head. I'd love to wear a jaunty fedora or cool Panama hat. It just isn't in the cards for me. But I can and do wear floppy hats. With my basal cell I need something between me and the sun. And while the hat doesn't totally protect me, it definitely helps to keep the sun off my face which is really important. This Sun Kissed black and white striped hat from Goorin Bros. is my new fave (similar style here the Sun Kissed is sold out for the season! Boo!). Full disclosure: they sent it to me. But guess what, I would have totally bought it otherwise. It really is the best hat for summer.
I can't wait to share all the details from my Mexico trip soon but I knew that this hat would be perfect to take with me. I think black and white stripes, like leopard print, are a neutral so it would go with everything. And look how perfect it went with my new bikini top. I'm drawn to black and white but this small stripe is a really summery way to wear it.
I can't believe how well it traveled. I'm not the kind of gal to carry on a hat. So I packed it in my suitcase. Tip: I crammed the part that sits on your head with all my undergarments and slips to make sure the shape would keep. I was a little less careful on my return trip and it still held up like a champ! I will be taking this with me on all my summer vacations! I even carried this in a tote bag one day and it still didn't get messed up. That is the kind of quality product I need in my life.
I stinking love this hat and am grateful that Grooin Bros. sent it to me. Thank you Goorin Bros! Be sure to check out their site to see their full selection of hats.
