Sun Protection with Style

Next week I’m traveling to Greece for vacation.

Hang on a sec. I need to just sit and smile at that sentence for a second.

I’m so excited – and in the trenches of packing at the moment. Our friends live in Athens and had three required items to bring: lots of sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. The Mediterranean sun is brutal and even the kids need lots of protection. No problem… except for a hat.

How to squeeze a hat into my suitcase without it getting completely flattened and bent out of shape?

This gorgeous brimmed hat made by Dorfman Pacific is PERFECT. This super stylish 4-inch brim is totally chic… but it folds up into a tiny ball, then pops back into shape like magic! It goes from chic-ing up a simple sundress to pairing with your everyday casual clothes in a blink.

This is me fishing. Really.

Plus, besides the chic factor, it has SPF 50, so it is much more than just a chic hat.

I love this hat! You will see this in most of my Instagram photos from Greece!

disclosure: i received this hat to facilitate this review. i was not compensated financially and, as always, all opinions are my own.

  1. Cute hat! And what a bargain at $25. I have always wished we could fold our straw hats to make them compact. They take up so much space in the closet.

    You look adorable btw!
