Pack A Hat & Fun Fashion Friday!

April 23, 2015
I’m excited to introduce Cappelli Straworld’s new Pack A Hat!  This chic hat packs away ingeniously into a cute little wristlet bag to carry with you whenever you go.  Best of all, thanks to the opaque material the hat has a UPF 50+ rating to protect our skin against skin cancer and premature aging.  How many times have you ended up walking out in the sunshine for longer than you expected, wishing for a cute and protective sun hat to go?  Your wish is granted with Pack A Hat. 

For only $25 you get a chic hat with a 50+UPF rating and the cute wristlet tote that it packs away into.  Perfect for a vacation, a day at the beach, a picnic, a festival, or to keep with you for anytime the sun comes out.  How about keeping a Pack A Hat in your desk at work for lunchtime walks?  Along with the hat, the tote can carry your money, keys, phone, and make up.  This hat and tote set is available in several fashionable colors and is shown here in natural. It has a pretty subtle gold shimmer to it that I love. Be sure to use this link to order and get free shipping!

Other outfit details: 
Top – Lilly Pulitzer for Target
Skirt – Old Navy
Sandals – Seychelles (DSW)

Disclosure: I was sent Pack A Hat as a present to review.  All opinions as always are my own. 

And since I have hats on the brain (as well as on my head) …
here are three very different and all very chic hat looks from last week’s link up:

Sandy of Sanda a la Mode and her friend look like lovely visions in their feminine dresses and cute hats.

Monika of Style is my Pudding is rocking this adorable flower adorned beret. Monika is always the epitome of funky chic!

Lauren of Punky Little DIYer never fails to make me smile and remember my Goth/Industrial/Punk days.  She worried if this outfit was a bit too Nightmare on Elm Street, but Freddy never looked this chic!

Time to party, Dolls!  Please link back. Don’t forget to visit and comment on other linker uppers for a fun Friday love fest!

    I love the white though I'm not sure how you scored the Lilly Pulitzer from Target. I had forgotten about it and by the time I remembered, it was too late 🙁

      Girl, I was waiting in front of my local Target at 730, but it was worth it .. I scored! 😀

    That white outfit is so beautiful. I've never worn a sun hat although I'm super careful not burning myself. Hats don't really work for me, they're hot, and my hair is too big and the hat sort of sits on top of my hair and looks funny… So, I have a sun umbrella….

    I love this type of white, long, soft sets are beautiful and very feminine. The top is a real cute and skirt, which in Spain called "ibizenca" for the island of Ibiza, is precious. The whole outfit, with fantastic hat, is perfect.

    Your outfit is so comfortable, feminine, breezy, yet sophisticated and dressy. Perfect for a brunch, outdoor wedding or bridal/baby shower for the Summer. Love your top and sandals. I also love hats, especially for Summer. Did you check out my new hat which I styled exactly a week ago on April 17th's post? Come take a peek.

    I love the idea of having a hat all the time. I'm very sensitive to sunlight so I normally do wear one…that is if the sun would finally decide to show up here. We are still having winter weather and it's almost MAY! Argh.

    Love all the white.

    Great idea for taking a hat along. I can't wear sunscreen so hats are a must in the sun for me. I will check out their sight. This one looks like it will go with anything from elegant to casual.

    You look radiant my dear! I am collecting "ladies in white" for a post in June and would love to include your first photo. It is a perfect picture of summertime!
