derby hats

I want to let you all in a fear of mine.  I have a fear of getting a sunburn on my lips.  I had a horrible, horrible sunburn on my bottom lip when I went on spring break to the Bahamas with friends my sophomore year of college.  It made my bottom lip so swollen and hurt much more than I thought it would.  Now, I am very adamant about making sure that whatever chapstick or lip balm I use has SPF in it.  I'm also more willing to wear hats now than ever before so I make sure to pack one whenever I go on vacation.

Unfortunately for me, the lip of the hat I brought with me is definitely not long enough to cover the bottom half of my face so I set out to purchase a new one on Monday {I'm still on operation spending freeze but I thought this was a justified purchase - and my parents were the actually the one to buy it}.  I got a big, floppy hat {something I've wanted for a long time!} at the boutique here and it's definitely been getting a lot of use.

I love this new one but would love to own one of these from Marley Lilly!  I love the monogram and the multiple color options.  Even better, you can get purchase a sash to add to these {just an additional $10} and I think those look great too!

{Monogrammed Wide Outline Derby Hat - comes in five colors, $36}

I hope you're all having a good week!


  1. These are adorable, I'm dying for a big floppy hat this summer, and a monogram would make it even better!

  2. These are adorable! I'm going to a horse race in a few weeks and these would be perfect (or perfect for a day at the beach!)


Thanks for stopping by and writing a little something! I love reading your comments! :] xo.
