Love, love, love HEMLOCK Hat Co. Fun straw hats that are designed for an active lifestyle. I discovered this hat company in a surf shop while I was visiting Florida last spring. A hat that has you fully covered and reasonably priced. The under brim liner comes in super fun prints for every personality. The fabric is UPF 50+ and comes with a draw string for those windy days. Also sweet for the youngsters!
Sometimes you just need a suit that is up for the task with no fuss, looks good, and is sporty. A swimsuit that says I am here to have fun. Nike delivers with their classic racer back one-piece. Lots of fun colors to choose from for those who prefer to go bright and bold!
Love this summer travel hat from Tracy Watts. A foldable hat that you can tuck into its sweet travel bag. Besides that fact, you can wear it with everything and you can pack it in your suitcase! On a long haul flight, the last thing you want to do is guard your straw hat from getting crushed. The Dune Asymmetrical Fedora comes in a natural color with white, melon, or blue stitching. They are handmade. The raw edging is perfection!

Any excuse to not give much effort to your hair. Summer gives you permission to be free from the blow dryer. Summer temps, humidity, and sunblock create a no win situation for most women.

Check out the following for inspiration: JCrew, Anthropologie, Madewell, and for the price of a fancy frock check out Hermes!!
Always hunting for stylish hats that are functional, fun, and chic. An important accessory that shouldn’t be overlooked especially in the summer.
