I always feel goofy wearing hats. I just do. I feel like it looks like I’m trying too hard or something. I can’t quite place my finger on it. However, I’m becoming more aware of the harmful effects of the sun, so a hat I feel comfortable in is becoming more and more essential.
A few years ago, I purchased one of those really cute panama/fedora looking hats. Here’s the problem- the curled brim was too short, so it didn’t provide sun protection. Plus, it was too tight on my head… I guess I have a big head. I literally ended up throwing it away in the airpot trash can. I was just so frustrated, because my head was throbbing from wearing a hat that was too small. Since then I’ve been on the hunt for a better option, so I had to do a post when I found this new favorite hat!!!
First, let me say it’s only $14. Yes, you read that correctly. Secondly, it fits my (apparently) large head (it’s 22″ around). Thirdly, the large brim provides full coverage from the sun. And it’s $14 -ha! Yes, it was worth repeating!
Now, if I just get over myself and wear it more. So far, I’ve worn it to the baseball fields, swim team practice and the pool. I’d say that’s pretty good for me!
