OOTD: Hat head

My friend Sasha has this huge, floppy hat that she’d wear while teaching pool classes. The hat was totally gorgeous, and we’d all say she looked like a movie star. I once told her she looked like a tropical sun goddess. πŸ™‚ When I taught pool classes, they weren’t my most appealing moments. I would wear a baseball cap and dance around in my Crocs while I taught. Thankfully, no videos or photos exist to document that special time πŸ˜‰

Even though my teaching at the pool days are behind me (for now), I’ve still wanted a “tropical sun goddess” hat to hide unwashed hair and rock at the beach or pool.Β 

Finally found the perfect one at Nordstrom Rack:

Liv tested it out for me while we were shopping, and in the end, we decided it was a good choice.

I wore it with a basic gap terry dress and some sandals. Simple, comfy and summery πŸ™‚

    Love the hat! I always wear a big floppy hat to the beach to keep the sun off my face. Your dress is so cute!

    LOVE it! I’ve been wanting to buy a big floppy hat but haven’t gotten around to it. Maybe this year is the year for me!

    Haha what a well timed post!

    Just last night while watching the Oscar red Carpet, I was lamenting to my friend how much I want to wear my giant jCrew sun hat but feel self conscious for making people think I am “that” girl.

    The truth is I wish men still wore hats, and heck, in high school I wore heels to class (ew I know) I AM that girl, I might as well own it. πŸ™‚

    Needless to say, I think your hat is fabulous!
