So What's With the Hat? - Self care Sunday



Summer is here and with it has come some of the most intense sun that I have seen in along time. Even under normal circumstances I am one to seek the shade but these days the sun calls for even more shade protection than normal. This means high spf lotion in the morning along with spf  make-up and even hair spray!

Add to that some really freakin big hats and you round out my Summer look. As I am able I will be doing my parade of sunhats for your amusement! Today's hat of choice is a very wide brimmed model that helps keep my neck and shoulder in the shade since obviously I have already picked up some unwanted sun on my chest.

When sitting where it's a bit shadier I flip up the front  for ease of vision. But when out in the sun that 7 inches of brim are divine for keeping me well under wraps.

It's also quite the conversation starter since it's a wee-bit like wearing your own umbrella hat, but hopefully much more stylish!

Do you have a favorite hat??... How are you keeping safe and out of the harmful effects of the sun this year?

Shade it is for me all the time! That hat needs a monogram!

If it would keep me from getting a sun burn, I'd wear a sombrero!! But as I spend most of my heat of the day hours inside just a standard ball cap after dusk it is for me!
