The Hat That Says Vacation

The sun is out; the gardenias are in bloom and infusing the air with their rich, heady scent; and turquoise waves lap at a white, powdery beach. It’s time for vacation!
One of the things I love about vacation is spending extended time outdoors…whether reading a book on a beach or simply strolling through an ancient village in the south of France.
When I’m on holiday, I love being en plein air. All that time in the sun, however, can wreak havoc on my skin. I don’t want to age any faster than I have to! Thus, I always wear a high SPF sunblock (Obagi’s Matte version is my favorite) and I always sport a beautiful hat as well.
Here are my favorites for summer 2018.
