panama pretty


EVER SINCE I saw Sydney of The Daybook wearing her Panama hat with everything from maxi dresses to jean shorts and a simple tee, I knew I had to find one for myself. I found the perfect one at the Gap on sale the other day and I couldn't wait to style it. I loved the way it gave my simple white shirt and paper-bag shorts a laid-back vibe. Although I'll probably never make it to Panama any time soon, this hat is the perfect alternative.

How are you styling hats this summer? Enjoy the sunshine and have a great Thursday!

  1. Love love love the shorts! They look so great on you. Paper bag shorts/pants are hard to pull off. They are either a real hit or a real miss for me.

  8. I've been considering getting a panama hat and fedora for some time but I'm not quite confident enough to wear it yet! Your hat really completes your outfit here, you wear it so well!

  12. You look absolutely adorable, Chelle! I love that hat on you, might have to swing by Gap to check it out for myself! I do love a good hat but find it hard to find one that fits my abnormally large head (I am actually a size XL and don't usually fit into the hats at fast fashion stores like H&M). A panama hat would definitely be at the top of my list though!

    Is Andrew still in town? Let's hang out before he leaves?!
