Made In The Shade

With summer in full swing, I've been having to get a lot more serious about sun protection. When I was younger, I was a lot more lax with the sunscreen and was all about that "laying out lifestyle," but now that I'm older and wiser (and more wrinkle prone!), I know that it definitely isn't worth the health and cosmetic risks. While sunscreen goes a long way, I like to double up on the face protection with a hat, which has the added bonus of adding instant style to my #OOTDs.

I've been a huge fan of the boater-style hats I've been seeing pop up everywhere, so I was on the hunt for a budget-friendly version. I found this one from Nordstrom for just $14, and while it's sold out now, I found a similarly-priced versions here ($15), here ($19) and here ($20).

I took my hat out on a recent weekend outing, pairing it with some black culottes ($26, scored during a shopping trip in Korea, and also worn here) and a white strappy tank from Forever 21 ($8). I finished off the look with a pair of eBay sunnies ($10, available here) and a pair of thrifted sandals ($12, from Crossroads Trading Co.). Head to toe, the whole outfit came out to $70.
