Hat Trick

My family spends pretty much all our time outdoors in the summer months – being from Minnesota means you take it when you can get it. I love spending all this time in the sun, but as I’ve said before, I am super careful about my fragile skin.

So right now I’m thankful that giant, floppy hats are in which means my choices in headwear are abundant. That, and my bronzer. Because everyone looks better with a little color. And you’ve seen what I look like without it. Yikes.

What are you thankful for this summer? Are you as thankful for floppy hats and sunshine as I am?

Linking up here today:

Did you know that there are tons of songs devoted to hats? And did you also know that National Hat Day is January 15th? I’m thinking that maybe I start celebrating that holiday. Perhaps I can do the Mexican Hat Dance, the Straw Hat Polka, and sing Straw Hats and Old Dirty Hank by the Bare Naked Ladies.

I guess, if we were celebrating this holiday in January, we’d have to wear woolen hats and not large brimmed floppy ones. So that would change the feeling of the party altogether. But I still feel like it’s worthy of a party. Perhaps that’s because I take any excuse I can to have fun. I love a good party – why not make it a hat party?

So, who wants to join me next January for a National Hat Day celebration?


  1. Love everything about this flirty and feminine look. That hat is amazing and the dress is just so feminine with the print and ruffles…love it!

  2. LOVE the hat on you!
    Have I mentioned how excited I am to go to Target next week? It may just have to be my first stop….right after Dunkin’ Donuts.

  3. Those shoes are so cute and summery! I really like this whole outfit…although sometimes I worry I can’t pull off a floppy hat, you do it perfectly! Feel free to stop by my blog- I’d love to have you join in on my weekly link-up “This Week the Trend”- also, for the month of July I’m offering free ad space! Happy Friday!
