That One Time I Bought A Beach Hat

So by now a lot of you know that by this time in 2 weeks I'll be well on my way to skin cancer (I mean SPF 70, sorry mom) on the beaches of Southern North Carolina. And if you don't know already, as each day passes I am less and less able to contain my excitement.

The only thing I'm not excited about? Bathing suit shopping. Raise your hand if you're with me. So while I was at Target buying a bathing suit, this happened:

Now I already know that my sister has an affinity for the floppy beach hat, so I knew what she was going to say. Case in point:

I was using my pasty  porcelain complexion as a reason to justify my purchase as well. I mean if I am going to me spending most of my days on the beach, I should be shading my face right?!

So here's the perpetrator:

ain't she a beaute?

Oh Target..... I don't remember how much it was, I want to say like 12 or 14 bucks. Its straw with gold thread. I mean what's more glam than gold?!

shameless selfie alert

I can't wait to wear this gorgeous thing on the beach!

Linking up with Meighan!


  1. Love this! I am so incredibly pale that I wear baseball caps to the pool all the time to try and shade my face. I don't want to burn or cause further damage. Your hat is so cute! Thank you so much for linking up!

  2. Ohhh I just bought two beach hats!!!! I don't know if I can pull them off as well as you though. And yes, I am dreading bathing suits- so sticking to finding cover ups!

  3. Hahaha I got a very similar one from Target last year, took it on vacation, and then promptly never wore it. Oops. They look so cute though!
