Summer is HERE and I could not be happier!! This sunshine puts me in the very best mood!! We are still adjusting to the little people all being out of school for the summer, but are cramming in as much fun as we can while we have them!! Since summer is in full swing, I thought the perfect subject for our Friday Faves would be one of my favorite Summer Staples…hats! I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite styles to share with you, as well as why I think each is a great summer staple to have in your closet!
:: STRAW HATS
First on my list of must have hats is straw hats! These are 100% one of my summer staples. Of course I love the look of them as an accessory, but they are the perfect hat for protecting your face from the sun. The straw hat is my go to for summer, especially trips to the pool because it is so lightweight so it doesn’t make your head sweaty. I love bringing it on vacations because you can go from wearing it at the pool, and then dress it up for dinner with a dress. It ooks great with your hair up or down, making it the perfect secret weapon for those no wash hair days!

:: FELT HATS
Felt hats are another staple in my closet. I basically have a whole wall of them hanging up because I love them that much. I’ve always felt more confident and put together with a hat, and the felt hat especially is so flattering. Felt hats are a particular favorite because you can wear them at an angle showing the front of your hair, or all the way down. I personally like the style shown in this picture and the one above that have more of a stiff wide brim versus the floppy so you don’t have to worry about readjusting or anything.
If you are considering trying out the felt hat trend, Gigi Pip is the place to look. I swear 75% of my hats, especially the felt ones are from Gigi. Ginger is a dear friend of mine and I 100% stand by the quality, fit, and just overall amazingness of her products. And bonus! You can use KAILEESHIP for free shipping!

:: BASEBALL HATS
Last but not least is baseball hats. I love these so so much! They are my very favorite to pair with a t-shirt + jeans or shorts. I love that you can just put your pony through or do a cute messy bun and you look completely pulled together. Even if you are secretly hiding a grease ball under there. I always always grab a ball cap for the kids games to protect my face from the sun as well. Plus I don’t think there is a person out there that doesn’t look cute in a baseball hat!!

Hats really are such a great summer staple to have. Not only do they make “getting ready” quick + easy, but they also keep you protected for the sun. It is a win win! I know a lot of people hesitate stepping out of the box with hats because they don’t think they look cute on them, or they can’t pull it off. But I’m here to tell you a good hat is just like a bold lipstick! You are the only one that thinks it is too much for you. You will rock it and be so happy you added it as a summer must have this year!
