The Perfect Sunhat

I’m still in the throes of laundry and getting the house together before our next round of house guests but I can’t believe I’ve been home five days already. The more I think about it I realize it was the best vacation I’ve ever been on. Beautiful scenery, hilarious people, lots of adventure and built in relaxing down time while we sailed to each new island. More pictures to come next week! Aubrey showed up with this awesome enormous sun hat she got from Whole Foods. We all tried to steal it the whole trip. Isn’t it rad? It’s perfect for lounging in the sun, and its so huge it makes everyone look fantastic. I found it for sale right over here.

    Love that. Been looking all summer for a perfect hat. Sun hats, fedoras… they all look so silly on me. I don’t know what the deal is!

    I love these floppy hats for vacation! Somehow they make me feel incognito and so glamorous while reading a book on the beach!!

    I’m daydreaming it’s me hidden under that super-sized dandy. Not only is this your best sun warrior, it’s the perfect way to camouflage – all eyes are drawn to the bodacious brim, not sagging counterparts. Though, clearly on this bathing beauty. Just gorgeous style.

    These days I’m always surprised by the lack of hats on beaches, in theme parks, and even backyards (hello wrinkles???!!). I always lather up and duck for cover when facing the sun. I may just have to add this to my collection.

    Thanks for the link!

    What a beautiful photo! May I ask what company you used to book your sailing trip? My friends and I are dying to do something similar and don’t know where to start!

    I bought a big floppy hat last summer at the j.crew outlet — it is amazing for keeping the sun off my face AND it looks adorable. Win-win!

    Yes, the hat is awesome. BUT WAIT! That photo is awesome! The swimsuit, the ocean, the sailboat. Du-ream!

    I bought a big brimmed sunhat from Joe Fresh for about $15 this summer and love it so much! It’s one of few hats I can get away with wearing…and I guess it shades the sun too :)

    Great find! Perfect for the summer sun, especially over here in the Mediterranean sun.

    I love that. I have a great big sunhat which I love. I’m as white as they come (all Irish) and I need the protection. Love the way they look chic. No visors for me! =)

    Boy, I wish I looked good in hats. I just tried a beach hat and looked ridiculous. Saved my eyes some strain, though.

    Cool Hat! Plus, with the heat wave going on here that water looks very inviting!

    The hat is lovely, but I REALLY love the swimsuit more! Would you be able to find out where she got her suit?

    Love the hat! Love those swim bottoms too — it looks like it would give me the coverage and support for my post-baby belly.

    I am so in love with this picture. Everything about it! The hat, the water, the sun, the swimsuit. It has such a feeling of beauty and romance.
