the best summer hats!

if you know me, you know i like my hats.  all year long, i live in them. mostly because i am lazy and hate doing my hair, but also because i find hats to be one of the better accessories that seems to complete any outfit. a few of my current favorites that i own, and a few i’d like to own, listed below:

1. casa blanca palm hat
love this hat! bought it last summer before our trip to lake tahoe and also lived in it during our time in puerto rico last fall. it’s the greatest sun hat, for sure.

2. panama hat
hard to have a favorite, but this one is probably close. own it in black as well and it’s just perfect.

3. fairland stripe sun hat
as a lover of the color yellow, this hat just speaks to me!

4. straw fedora with leather band
have been wearing this one on repeat the last few months.  also just snagged this madewell hat as well, which has a floppier wider brim that i am loving.

5. crushed top ranger hat
even in summer, you need a black hat. according to me.  and i’m a super reliable source. ;)

6. layla straw cowboy hat
like a cowboy hat but way prettier, right?

7. tonasket nail straw hat
this boxier hat is cool. the boxy ones always look silly on me but that’s probably because i am a mother of three and not at a music festival somewhere. but seriously, so cool.

8. lattice floppy hat
this hat is basically summer wrapped up in one hat. she’s probably holding a watermelon lemonade in her hand and everything.

    My favorite from this lineup has to be no. 5, the crushed top ranger hat. I agree that a black hat is a must, even when the sun is blazing during the summer.

    I always want to wear hats but I’m not so sure I could pull it off. This makes me want to try! :) Such fun hats!

  6. Ugh, I wish I could pull off a summer hat! They always end up off my head in 2 seconds. My blog partner Heather rocks them though, may have to share this list with her.

  7. This is great! I’m trying really hard to make hats more of a routine in my wardrobe, but sometimes find it such a fuss with two small children! The wind, kids, hair… You know? How do you do it?

    Great hat round-up! I totally agree, a black hat or fedora style hat is definitely necessary even in the warmer months!

  9. ooh, I have a yellow felt hat I should pull out for the summer! thanks for the reminder!

  10. ooh, I have a yellow felt hat I should pull out for the summer! thanks for the reminder!

  11. You are so right about the last picture with the big floppy hat, I can totally imagine this! :D And I love this hat by the way, it’s summer in one object.

  12. Lovely suggestions! My favourite is the black crushed top ranger hat. It is so sleek! I need one (:

    I just ::adore:: the casa blanca palm hat. I’m wondering…how do you pack your hats when you travel? Also, how do you store them at home. Thanks!

      i usually just bring one with me on trips so i wear it on the plane. i hang them on hooks on a wall in my closet at home!
