So Many Hats and Only One Head!

28 May

Hats are all the rage this summer season. From vintage looking straw hats to the huge hats worn by southern belles at the Kentucky derby, whatever your style, a hat is always a compliment.

I’ve always wanted one of those gargantuan hats that are so big they cover half my face. They just make me think of Audrey Hepburn with a lot of elegance and a touch of mystery.

They also remind me of that scene in the movie The Parent Trap, you know before Lindsay Lohan went all awol on us, where she meets her father’s girlfriend for the first time and the scene is just a close up of a beautiful lady completely hidden by her large hat. As she is introduced to Lohan’s character, she slowly lifts up her head and we could carefully begin to make out features of her face.

But besides being super sexy and sophisticated, hats also protect your head from the beating rays of the sun. Investing in a hat would actually not be such a terrible idea, considering just this past weekend I was on a boat and managed to have the part in my hair burn ever so slightly. (let’s keep that on the DL though, my parents would kill me!)

Well honestly, what is a girl to do? Slab on sunscreen on my hair? Yea that would be attractive, looks like a hat it is!

Check out Bloomingdale’s for a variety of hats for the season at very reasonable prices.

Clockwise from the left: Aqua Braided Straw Floppy Hat with Grosgrain Ribbon, $35; Aqua Floppy Sunhat with Metallic Edge, $46.40; Aqua White Straw Fedora with Blue Ribbon Trim, $40.60

Happy Shopping!
