With the sun making a grand appearance in the Carolinas this weekend, I was reminded of the relief I get from one simple addition to my wardrobe: a hat!

Lightweight clothing and sunscreen are a clear must on days like today (90 degrees and not a cloud in the sky!) But nothing can replace that extra shade and relief from the perfect hat. The best hats, in my humble opinion, need to be one (or all) of the following:

  • packable
  • adjustable
  • lightweight
  • wide brim (for just a little extra sun protection!)

Stay cool my friends,
