Every beach season it’s the exact same scenario. My new swimsuit has been ordered and arrived. (Check that off the list!) Same for a perfectly coordinated cover-up and brand-new sunnies. My favorite leather flip-flops have been patiently waiting inside my favorite raffia beach bag since last summer.
Everything appears to be sorted for a season of seaside glamour ... until, that is, I head out on my debut beach escape, realize I’ve totally forgotten a sun hat again, and end up paying twice-retail for a hat-of-desperation (like this “Flap Cap” beauty) from a shoreside vendor.
Not this year, though, thanks to the array of wide-brimmed hats ahead that have me solidly ahead of the game. I’ll be wearing them with my shore ensembles for sure — but each and every one will work equally well with a breezy summertime dress or a shorts-and-a-tee pairing.
