I want a big, floppy hat

May is Melanoma Awareness Month. Please help spread the word by sharing this post with your friends and family.

I have been pinning over large, floppy hats as of late. And it's not just because of the Kentucky Derby last weekend.

When it comes to sun protection, my scalp has always been my Achilles' heel. No matter how many SPF creams, gels, or sprays I try, I always end up with at least one or two nasty sunburns every year along my part. This is bad because: 1) a flaky scalp is never sexy, and 2) because sunburns mean skin cancer! I loathe the idea of ruining a cute summer outfit with an ugly hat (I'm really not a hat person to begin with), but oh, how glamorous ladies some look in a wide-brimmed straw hat! I've tried a few so far, and unfortunately, they all looked awful. Too big, too small, too pink. My boyfriend caught me trying some on the other day, and he laughed at me. BUT, I will not rest until I find the perfect summer hat. I know it has to be out there somewhere.

I would also love to know if anyone has found a non-greasy spray sunscreen that they've used to protect their hairline. Sometimes a girl just needs to go for a swim... so I'll be keeping my eyes peeled. Let me know if you find one first!


  1. Floppy hats are so fun. Boys will never understand how fabulous they are- don't worry about your boyfriend! :) Good luck with your search

  2. I love floppy hats lounging by the pool with a cocktail :)

  3. Look at, they have some hats that aren't really floppy but have great coverage! I had a large pink one that I keep for the beach, but have a Wallaroo that let's my ponytail stick out and then I have one of those boonie hats for when we go camping. I took rickrack and decorated it!
