I’ve never been much of a hat person. I see cute outfit pictures with hats on other blogs, but I largely feel like hats don’t work for me. I recognize how functional they are, and there are definitely times when wearing them is almost necessary, especially for people like me who nearly always wear glasses and therefore have to choose between squinting, wearing sunglasses and not being able to see, or wearing a hat when it’s sunny outside.
In an effort to embrace a new accessory, I bought this hat last year and have gotten a lot of use out of it. I thought it was a great addition to this casual July 4-inspired outfit and would be useful if I end up being outside for any holiday festivities this weekend. I’ve worn this bicycle print button-up shirt on the blog a few times (here and here), but I just can’t get enough of the cute blue and red print on it. It looks great with these navy eyelet shorts and red shoes.
I hope everyone has a great July 4!!!
