Ever since I saw Pretty Woman when I was little I always wanted a fabulous hat collection, so I could stomp the polo grounds like Julia Roberts! This summer was the year I finally invested in a few great hats too – still working on the polo matches!
Two styles that were on my “must have” list were a trendy fedora that I could pair with multiple outfits and of course the iconic floppy hat that I can wear with a classic sundress. I knew I wanted to invest in an [Eric Javits] hat not only for the structure, comfort & colors they come in but for an additional benefit that they offer in all their hats. Each hat blocks 95% UVA/UVB rays and is awarded the highest rating of 50+ UPF. This was a key feature I needed in a hat this summer as I was diagnosed with Lymphoma and ended up losing all my hair. These hats make me feel chic & like myself as well as gave me great protection and were extremely versatile. Also, whenever I wear them I get stopped because they are truly special.
I bought both hats early this summer from [walinandwolff]. They always have a great assortment; it was actually very difficult not leaving with one of each style. But I was able to narrow it down to their traditional floppy hat in peanut as well as the big deal fedora in peanut. The fedora was my go to this summer whether I was going to the beach or lunch with friends. It had a casual & fresh feel making it a very easy wear. The floppy hat is a special hat. This hat is perfect for traveling somewhere tropical or enjoying a fun getaway to the Hamptons for the weekend. Either way both hats have been a great purchase for this summer and many more to come!
