The Panama Hat

The staple of my spring and summer hat wardrobe, the Panama Hat has found it's way out of winter hibernation, and I was delighted to fall in love with it all over again. Savior of bad hair days, the quick and easy refresh to even the most tired of combinations. Even those of you who claim to not be hat people should wander over to J.Crew and at least try it on. Perhaps you will be converted, and you can get an extra 30% off through Friday.

  1. I love this hat every time you wear it. A new hat in my collection is absolutely the last thing I need, and considering the way my closet is currently overflowing, the last thing I should do is anymore shopping, but... I am tempted. The straw Panama really is the perfect summer hat and as I sit here admiring how you've styled it for spring, I'm also thinking ahead to how I could wear it for summer, particularly when we go to San Francisco in June... It may just be added to my collection yet ;)

  2. Nope, I know it still won't look good on me! Haha. Darn hats! ;)
    As usual love the field jacket...maybe I'll get one tonight (and then never wear it because that's what I do)

  3. Loving the easy neutrals here, lady- such a cool spring outfit!

  4. I love hats, I just have trouble committing to them! I think I just need to wear them more often...I get this feeling that's a lot like an itch where all I want to do is take it off haha. Love this look!

  5. Great jacket... and who does not love Panama hats ?
    Which, btw I have to replace...

  6. I debated getting that hat for a year and finally got it last year and love it! Definitely the staple on my summer hat wardrobe too...partly because it's the only summer hat I own. lol

  7. It's freaking snowing here again and your pictures are making me crazy jealous! I love that hat! It is a true warm weather staple.

  8. I have a straw fedora, but I really like the wider brim of the panama hat. Yours looks amazing on you!

  9. I've said it before but I'll say it again - I am exceedingly envious of your ability to wear hats!

  10. I'm not really a hat person and I just picked up the J.Crew panama hat! I love it! It looks great on everyone and is definitely a summer staple!

  11. That hat is lovely on you! I really need to try more hats - I've been wearing my one sunhat a lot over summer, it would be good to have some other options to help shield my face from the sun.

  12. I hear the word Panama and automatically the Van Halen song is stuck in my head... ah. :) I have always loved that green jacket of yours, Lyddie. It could almost be a neutral and fit with anything and I have got to get myself one!

  13. This panama hat does look really well on you. I struggle with this style hat for me face.

    Thank you for being a part of TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you soon!


  14. I love this cute, classic look. Every time I see these jeans too I always want to go to Old Navy and try them--they have the perfect amount of distressing. You're totally making me want to be a hat person too :)
