Panama Hat

Panama Hat 6

Saint James Tee // J.Crew Denim Vest // Cynthia Rowley Skirt (similar here + here)

DVF Wedges (old) // J.Crew Hat // 3.1 Phillip Lim Bag

My head is ginormous.  I get it from my dad.  What can I say, we just have really, really big brains.  It’s hard being so smart.  Due to my large brain, it has been impossible to find great hats, which makes me sad.  In the winter, knit beanies are my best friend… but in the summer, any Panama hats or fedoras… forget it.  On a whim I tried on this Panama hat at J.Crew and was completely shocked to see that it actually really fit!  Large headed ladies, rejoice.  On another note, I can’t stop wearing this skirt.  You’ve seen it here + here… it was under $30 at TJ Maxx and I had to get it tailored (the lining was oddly longer than the skirt) but totally worth the extra work.

  6. This post made me laugh—your head certainly does NOT seem big, but hats can be weird. I love that skirt and your layers in this outfit. Very cute!

  8. This outfit is adorable! And I have the opposite problem – I have a peanut head and actually have to wear kids’ hats, whomp whomp.

  14. I love your honesty about the hat size thing. My head seems to fit in hats but my ears stick out…even though I have super thick hair. go figure. I hope things are calming down for you!

  16. I just love the J Crew Panama hat but never picked it up for Summer. I’m curious, are you retiring it when Fall comes along or do I still have ways to style it for colder weather?

  17. I’m with Chelsea, really wondering if I’ll regret not buying that hat…

    Also, love seeing you smile, lady. 🙂

    Again, also, give me that Phillip Lim bag!
