If it seems like in every photo you see of me I am wearing hat, it's because I am. I get a lot of emails asking about my hats and recently I got a question from a reader asking why I wear them so often! It really made me laugh out loud. It's completely true- I am wearing a hat pretty much 95% of the time.
The reason is actually not for fashion reasons. In an effort to take better care of my skin I increased my whole skincare regime a few years ago (remember this throughback post of me...feels like forever ago)- wearing sunscreen religiously, wearing a hat religiously, and staying out of the sun. I was fortunate to have an easy pregnancy and it was not until a few months after I had Lillian I noticed that my skin was very sensitive to the sun and I was getting more sun spots. Since the summer I have had two sinus infections and the antibiotics I was on make skin very sensitive to sun so I try to just always stay in the shade.
It sounds completely crazy but when I find myself in the sun without a hat I keep thinking to myself, "MUST. FIND. SHADE." Maybe I take it a little overboard but it is so important to take care of your skin!
Here are some of my favorite hats! I think I need to get this hat because it's the Lillian hat by Eugenia Kim!!!
