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.
