Do you like my hat?..good! Since you will be seeing a lot of me in this hat and the multiple others that I own. Spring is here so as opposed to the many friends I have who are sun worshipers and tanning divas I dive under my big brimmed hats, slather on the sun screen and hide under the shade of a tree.
I am *blessed* with both photosensitive and wildly pale skin these in combination with and because of the ~Big L~ means that I am the girl most likely to be wearing at hat at any Spring or Summer event.
Hat wearing comes with it's own challenges, including finding decent hats that don't make you look like a member of the Royal Family or a church lady. I am LOVING so many of these hats by Coolibar . I will be making that Monaco Wide brim MINE!
Hair styles for hat wear are also important since the wrong style means you end up with the dreaded "hat hair" should you need to take off your hat at some point during your day. I find that a tight low pony tail works ( see my avatar pic) well as to the ever popular pig tails :) ( above)
Least but possibly the most vexing.. most people just do not wear hats today so you have to been totally cool with being looked at if you are going to wear a lot of hats since short of growing a second head I don't think I could get people to look at me any more than when I wear at hat. - go figure!
Confidence is the key.. so much so that it sparks multiple comments each time I wear a hat, women commenting in longing tones about wanting to wear a hat but feeling silly or conspicuous. Men telling me how much they like it..or ever better ..that it's very sexy ~sigh~ got to love that!
So go put on a hat, it protects your face from wrinkles, your hair from fading and all of you from the harmful cancer causing effect of the sun. Even better.. send me a photo of you in a hat and I will post it here... and I will see what I can do about whipping up a hat contest for the masses!!!
