The Panama Hat: Restyled
Date: March 17, 2015 | Location: Westside Provisions District // Atlanta, Georgia
Anna Claire and I have been on the same wavelength lately. We have been buying very similar items (if not the exact same). We actually do not discuss the outfits we are going to use for posts, so it has been cracking us up that we continue to choose very similar styles. Our posts are always surprises to one other which keeps things fresh and exciting. It has definitely been one of the perks of bicoastal blogging!
I am wearing the same J.Crew Panama hat that Anna Claire featured in her Suede + White Leather post last week. This hat has been a trusty companion for me through countless beach trips and days spent by the pool. I am very careful about sun exposure these days; especially on my face. I always wear at least 50 SPF (Dermalogica's Pure Light is my fave!) and make sure to have sunglasses and my Panama hat on hand at all times.
This bag is one of my most treasured finds. I actually found it while consignment shopping with my mom (the true bargain queen). It was such a steal -- only $5.00! I love searching for hidden gems at consignment stores. One of my first jobs was at Hand Me Up's, the cutest consignment boutique in picturesque, downtown Powder Springs, Georgia. Working there gave me a good eye for used items that can easily become new staples. I love the character this bag has and it doubles as both a beach bag and purse for me.
Obviously, you can't buy this same bag, but I've linked a few others that I adore! Shop the entire look here:
