Hats and braids

I am the fairest of the fair, aside from my freckles that is. All summer I struggle to stay protected from the sun. I love spending time outdoors though so wearing a hat is my favorite way to look chic and protect my skin. I’m totally inspired by these braided/ hat topped beauties.

Do you wear a hat to shade your face?  What kind? I mostly don a soft straw fedora that I got over 5 years ago from a great millinery in SoHo aptly named The Hat Shop.

    I’m super pale too but I tend to shy away from hats. I think this post might have changed my mind, they look so good! –Olivia

    i wear a wide brim hat when I like to dress up and a baseball cap when I go out for an errand or play under the sun. the hat+braid combination is inspiring! 🙂
