Summer straw hat

Summer is definitely here in Portland. While some may be complaining about the heat, I am happy as a clam and fully am embracing it! After all, I have been waiting for this warmer weather for months! I don't normally sport any hair/head accessories so I thought I will show you one of my only three straw hats I own. This hat is purchased two years ago from Goorin Brothers. They have a cool shop here in the 23rd area in downtown Portland. The only problem I have with wearing a hat in the heat is, well the heat! My head will start to get really warm and then I am forced to take it off after a while. Nevertheless, I do love this different look, wearing a hat. The best thing about a wide brim hat is obviously the extra shade it offers. Being in the eye health field, I am really careful about protecting my eyes from the harmful UV ray. I think that is part of the reason you always see me in sunglasses.

These pictures were taken in front of a German restaurant in the Hollywood district. We did not eat in there but just loved the unique architecture of the building. Are you a hat person? How do you style your outfits with your hat(s), winter and/or summer? I would love to hear your thoughts :)

Grooin Brother's hat, Sam Edelman sandals (old, but love this one), Rebecca Minkoff red MAC (black, mini version here), Lindberg sunglasses, Jord Sully wood watch (c/o, get them here)

Have a fabulous Thursday and thanks for reading <3

Glad you are getting the summer heat you wanted at last! :)

I like the addition of colour with your accessories - especially the bag of course, haha! Your sun hat looks really practical for the summer sun too :) I'm not a hat person but definitely need them during the summer as an extra layer of sun protection!

I just started getting into the hat trend myself and have acquired just a few.
This is a very lovely Outfit. The gingham print shirt, red flats and hat are super cute.
