Wide-Brimmed Hats
I have developed into a big fan of wide-brimmed hats. Growing up in Texas I must admit that at first I wasn't sure about the look of these "non-cowboy" sombreros. Nevertheless they are now my favorites. Whether straw or canvas, a wide-brimmed hat is a great way to keep cool and protect your skin when out in the sun. Try one out this summer if you haven't already!
