Break Out The Hat!


While enjoying the Florida sunshine and the beaches has been amazing, the humidity and the salt water can pull a number on your hair! My naturally wavy hair curls up into a frizzy rats nest, even with a ton of hair product.  This is the time of year when I can wear chic hats and pretend that it's a fashion statement and not just a cover up.

This is what is really under the hat and post photo shoot:

...and below is my pre-hat, pre-frizz look.

If you know a secret to fighting frizzy hair, please let me know!

    I love the individuality of a hat. I wear them even if my hair is doing fine. I just love them! You look fantastic!

  3. Oh looks like a lovely place to be right now! Cute dress and I think your hair looks great.

    Isn't Florida grand? : > Love your maxi dress, and thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  5. Love Florida minus the humidity, lol! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. It was a nice change from the winter days we are still having in Atlanta! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  7. Glenda, you look fabulous in anything you wear! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  8. Stopping by from Manic Monday. I love this outfit. It's super cute. I am obsessed with hats right now and you look great pairing yours with this maxi. I also really love your page design. So cute!

  9. The humidity in Florida is no joke! The fact that your "before" pic is flawless even amazes me! I don't think I could leave my hair down ever! Happy to be in good company with the full body stripes today! You look amazing in that dress! Carylee | morepiecesofme.com

  10. Thank you for the sweet compliments, Kimberly. I'm so happy you stopped by and I found your blog!

  11. Great maxi dress and the hat definitely adds to the look, but hats are an all day commitment for me! If I need to go somewhere without one I have to wash and redo the whole hair situation. Yours only looks slightly tussled post-hat!

  12. Thanks for the kind words, Carylee! My "before" pic only lasted about 10 minutes before it all went down into a frizz ball, lol!!

  13. Hi Gina, You are right about the "all day commitment" with a hat, once you put one, on you can't take it off unless you are okay sporting flat hat hair! Thanks for stopping by! :)


Thank you so much for your comment! I read each and everyone of them, your support means the world to me. Don't forget to post your link to your blog so I can stop by! Xo, Monica
