I bought this large beach hat at Century 21 on my last trip to New York. I like to read at the beach and I’ve always wanted an enormous beach hat for sun protection and shade. When packing for California, this hat was neatly folded at the bottom of the suitcase even though the weather forecast didn’t seem too promising. I’m glad I packed it because (as is often the case) the forecast was overly pessimistic. On my second last day in California, a ‘beach’ opportunity presented itself and my new hat and I got a chance to get better acquainted :).

What I’m wearing:

  • Large beach hat by “SCALA”
  • Long cotton top by “Marciano”
  • Cotton mini skirt by “TART”
