Big Hat Love

Thanks to all my fabulous and gorgeous blogging friends for their very sweet birthday wishes! As a Gemini, it's my joy to create a little drama on my birthday. Then, typically, us Geminis make up for it the next day with a little calm after the storm. So we were off to the beach Sunday morning for a gorgeous, relaxing day at a New York City public beach. Not, luckily, one of the beaches closed for contamination over the weekend. Yuk, yes, but you haven't lived till you've been on a beach a stone's throw from the NYC skyline. Amazing.


The sun hates me, so hats are my best friends in the summer. I've got an old straw beach hat, but this huge, floppy hat from Gap on 34th Street ($24.50) is my new, big hat love. It's the floppiest hat I've tried on all season. I can walk down the beach one-eyed all day, or cover up my entire face while sunbathing.

And look at this sporty seersucker newsboy cap on sale for $9.99 online. Adorable.I'm also due for a new maternity bathing suit, a I'm currently wearing a flowered hand-me-down. I thought I wouldn't care, it's just a bathing suit for three months, until I saw a cute pregnant woman wearing an adorable two piece on Sunday. Now I can't stand my perfectly fine hand-me-down with fuchsia flowers. Is this an illness?

Gap Herald Square, 60 W. 34th @ 6th Avenue

I adore huge floppy hats, and this one looks so great on you!

Haha, I LOVE big hats! I too am hated by the sun, and floppy hats are just a complete godsend. Between the two of us, I'd bet we could make them bigger than they were the first time around (whenever exactly that was...) ;)

I love floppy hats as well. That one looks really lovely on you! I have a big, black straw one that I bought a while ago but I haven't gotten the chance to wear it yet. I must do so this summer though!

Love the floppy hat. So will you be rocking a maternity friendly bikini? :D I'm taking style notes from you. I have a friend who is trying to have babies this year, and she's already scouting out the maternity wear. LOL.
