Fashion for Your Skin!
The Chief Blonde was sent several great hats to review from Wallaroo, here she is wearing the Wallaroo Nina ($52). She is also wearing Nine West Golan Espedrilles (old, similar), Endless Rose Varsity Sweater (sold out, similar), and Memory Necklace. Lipstick: Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in “Call the Shots” ($18).
My entire life I have had to wear hats. I have very fair skin and a hat is not an option, it’s a must. My first job was working at a U-pick Strawberry farm and all day was spent in the sun directing pickers in the strawberry fields. We were relegated to wearing the farm’s baseball hats, so the U-pickers could easily spot us in the field. Let me tell you, for my fair skin, the small brim of a ball cap was NOT adequate.
When I choose hats these days, I most often gravitate to one with a wide brim like this Wallaroo Nina. The 4 1/2″ brim protects both my face and neck from the sun and I certainly look and feel fashionably wearing it. What I love is that there is an internal drawstring that I can adjust ensure the hat fits. This hat is made from Raffia which I always find to be the coolest material for hats, plus it has this fabulous crochet weave that makes very unique from any other wide brim hat I own.
I appreciate year round sun protection that looks as good from the front as it does from the back.
For a completely different kind of Wallaroo hat for women,check out this Wallaroo Tahiti ($52). Perfect to wear in the city or around town, this darling raffia fedora will have you turning heads at any restaurant or show in town.

Protection from harmful sun rays areso important. I have pale skin and I do everything in my power to tan in a safe way.
This is such a pretty hat! Wallaroo seems to make excellent products. I spend a lot of time outdoors in the spring and summer, so it’s important for me to have sun protective clothing and hats.

I love the hat! It is super cute! I should wear a hat more often but don’t.
Sherry Compton says
It’s great that they make one for everyone. You are definitely fashionable in it. Today is actually felt hat day since it used to be that felt hats were worn now instead of sunny straw hats. I like that Wallaroo is changing that up and making straw hats something to wear year round.

I have a couple of different hats I wear outside. I like a wide brim. Yours is a lovely hat.
