Back when I was in high school (and honestly most of college ?), I had a very questionable sense of style. It wasn’t good… and yes, that may or may not have included a little hat phase. I’m pretty sure seeing myself in those ridiculous photos is part of the reason why I’ve been afraid to wear hats for all this time. Seriously! Have you ever had an awful trend haunt you? Cough (low rise jeans) cough.
But fast forward to this May right before Mexico! Randomly enough, Adam stopped in Erehwon, and called me to ask if I wanted one of their sun hats. I almost said no, but then I thought, why not? I can rock one better than I did 10-15 years ago, right?! Well, it turns out that I loved having it on those warm days in the sun… and now I’m noticing cute sun hats everywhere. I think the funniest part is that I didn’t even get hooked on hats because of anything fancy or expensive! This was 20 bucks at an outdoor shop – further proof that you don’t need to spend a fortune or get caught up in designer names to have fun with your style!
And of course I can’t post these pics without talking about this dress!! I discovered Royal Native through my Aunt Katia who knows the designer out on Long Island. I instantly became obsessed with the bold prints and fun silhouettes, so when she offered to send me a piece, I jumped on it! Seriously, everything on the site is MADE for summer. The sombrero print?! Come on! Who’s got the margs and tacos ready?!
Do you wear summer hats?
